Abstract: Effective organisation of a warehouse's incoming goods section is important for its productivity as ensuring efficient shelving systems. When the incoming goods section is not properly configured, this almost automatically causes major interruptions throughout the subsequent storage phase. For effective storage of goods in warehouse farm optimisation algorithm (FOA) is proposed. The efficacy of the proposed approach was demonstrated using BR datasets and it is compared with different optimisation algorithms. From this experiment, it is noted that the suggested FOA fulfils the objective of efficient arrangement of goods in the warehouse. The order in which the goods are placed into the warehouse is also noted to be ideal than other competitive optimisation algorithms.

Keywords: effective organisation; warehouses; farm optimisation algorithm; FOA; efficient arrangement; optimisation algorithm.
