For easy reference the example simulates the effect of the application of the Virtual Warehouse on a City Sanitary District
consisting in three Hospitals only. Larger scale of application will deliver bigger savings and better optimizations.
In the example the three Hospitals are located on a distance of approximately 20 minutes one from each other.
This circumstance makes possible the transfer of materials between members of the system in less than an hour.
As a last analysis it is easy to realize that, once safety provisions are kept, it is possible to reduce total amount of
stock without effecting operativity and providing big savings.
If every Hospital reduces the warehouse of 33% and makes
available 66% this will deliver:
- savings equal to total value of an entire warehouse;
- the equivalent of two entire warehouses available on the territory.
