Interview Question


You have 3 warehouses. Warehouse A, Warehouse B, and

  Warehouse C. Place them anywhere and tell me why.

Interview Answer

1 Answer


Consider that warehouse A is located at (x,y) Calculate the lead time for serving DC1 at (x1,y1) from a warehouse (co-ordinates (x,y)) - this parameter is L1 (Optional: Rule out all the lead times that are greater than a pre-decided lead time) Add the demand forecast for the DC1 as to the total demand served D. Repeat this exercise for all DCs. Optimize this model for maximizing D and minimizing lead time L. You will decide where you place warehouse 1. Repeat the same exercise for W2 and W3 - make sure you zero the demand for all DCs served by W1 and then for W3 - W1 and W2.
