The technical management of the offices of the Lower Austrian provincial government operates a warehouse for facility management services in the government district of St. Poelten. The technical management supervises the facility management of the government district as well as serveral external real estates. 

In the warehouse for building services approx. 4.700 articles are stored on an area of 320m², providing a product range of tools, spare parts for technical facilities up to consumables. It is supervised by two to three skilled workers. Since two contemporary supervisors are going to be retired, the opportunity was given to reorganize the warehouse.
Within the inventory all current data were evaluated and analyzed, which were provided by customer. The results of the analysis of the current data establish a basis for determining the planning data base. Furthermore an onsite survey of the current processes as well as a local gathering of those basic conditions, requirements and restrictions took place, which have to be considered within the reorganization.
During the conception phase three different variants of the warehouse and surface layout system were established. Both the relevant structures, processes and the different function surfaces and the technical facilities in the warehouse were considered and integrated into a logistical master plan. Within the improvement of the flow of person and materials internal warehouse development screens were adapted to future operating processes considering the specifications, which are produced by the current building structure. The legal implementation of a video-based theft protection was evaluated and a general cost estimate of the implementation of a concept with approval was calculated.
Within a workshop with representatives of the customer the evaluation results were presented, discussed and afterwards fixed in a management summary.
