Several firms have implemented non-traditional aisles based on our research. If you have implemented our work, or know of someone who has, please contact us! We are trying to document these implementations to make it easier for others to follow.
Generac Power Systems (click for a full description)
Managers at Generac saw an article on our work in a popular trade journal and decided to “just do it!” This warehouse features a modified fishbone design with a tunnel cross aisle in the central region (what we now call a “fishbone triangle”). It has single-deep pallet rack in the center, and floor storage on the wings.
This warehouse stores floor tiles in a floor stacking environment. There is also order picking in the central region. Because pickers visit only one or two locations per order, the fishbone design is still appropriate.
