Modern pharmaceutical logistics centers vary greatly in their logistics operations based on their business. Not only that, the logistics process planning and implementation of the warehouse and its internal equipment of the pharmaceutical logistics center, its focus points are also different due to the characteristics of different business and logistics operations.
Logistics planning needs to consider the scale of business
What issues need to be considered in the detailed planning of the warehouse of the pharmaceutical logistics center? Houda Automation believes that in addition to considering construction engineering, investment and other factors, it is also necessary to consider the different formats of enterprises (transfer, hospital, fast batch, new drug agent, etc.) The scale of each business, the stage of growth of the enterprise and the direction of development, etc., can be put into effect by implementing the specific daily workload of the warehouse and the design conforming to the new GSP regulations.
First of all, according to the new GSP standard, related appendices and some provinces' modern pharmaceutical logistics interim standards, automated warehouses, automatic sorting systems, high-level metal shelves, electronic tags, WMS storage systems, RF handheld terminals and other equipment are required for the medical logistics center warehouse. And the direction and layout of these devices directly affect the design form of the warehouse. Therefore, in the design of the warehouse must be comprehensively considered, such as how many lanes of auto-stereo library, how to determine the direction of the three-dimensional library into the shipment, how to automatically sort the automatic sorting system and how to match the electronic label.
Furthermore, the number of internal cargo spaces in the warehouse, the length and flow rate of the sorting system, the number of sorting ports, the form of the electronically controlled scanner, the corresponding rules of the WMS warehousing software and electronic tags, etc., ultimately determine the investment quota. The size, length of construction time and whether the warehouse can meet the requirements for use.
In summary, the planning and design of the warehouse of modern pharmaceutical logistics center should firstly clarify the logistics needs of the owner unit, and then calculate the size of the warehouse area according to the business characteristics and development direction, and then specifically design the layout of the warehouse floor and the layout of the internal functional area. Only after the introduction of the logistics process plan can the civil engineering project be designed.
Project implementation must closely follow the GSP certification points
After the completion of civil works in the modern pharmaceutical logistics construction project, the specific implementation work must be carried out in accordance with equipment procurement, on-site installation and commissioning, and on-line preparation.
The logistics integration unit shall issue the main logistics equipment procurement technical solutions according to the process plan, including automated three-dimensional warehouse, automatic sorting system, electronic label, WMS storage system, RF handheld terminal system and other procurement. According to the equipment procurement technical plan, the owner unit conducts the price comparison and purchase negotiation of the equipment. For projects that require open tendering, the logistics integration unit should also send experts to participate in the technical tendering of major equipment, so that experts can give technical advice. The procurement process is a key step in finalizing the implementation plan, and it also directly determines the cycle, cost and implementation difficulty of the logistics project.
After the completion of the procurement, when the main equipment such as the automated warehouse and the automatic sorting system are put into the installation, how to organize the construction teams to safely and effectively install hundreds of millions of modern equipment on schedule is the core of this stage. jobs. This work requires experienced implementation consultants to coordinate and control all software and hardware devices on behalf of the owners, and make final judgments and rulings on various technical disputes. Therefore, the job requires a high level of professionalism for project personnel. Only when this step is completed safely can we ensure the use of the entire logistics system and ultimately determine the GSP acceptance time.
Finally, the modern pharmaceutical logistics center warehouse should be successfully used and passed the GSP acceptance. On the basis of doing the above work, it is necessary to accurately determine the project launch time. Therefore, the project implementation consultant must assist the owner unit to organize the personnel of the warehouse to participate in the training and stress test according to the results of the joint adjustment, and give the final time and proposal for the relocation of the new and old warehouses. On the other hand, the logistics integration unit must cooperate with the owner's requirements for the new GSP, and check and adjust the functions of the hardware and software equipment inside the warehouse one by one. After the new warehouse modern logistics system is stable for half a month, give the owner the final The GSP acceptance time node is recommended.
