Resource modelling – to model effect of receipts / picking operations through the year/ week / day / hour – this tool then calculates resources required to meet forecasted demands 
Cost modelling 
The resource tool is used to calculate labour / MHE resource requirements over a period of time, taking into account seasonal volume fluctuations. From the tool various charts and graphs can be produced. Once set up the impact of say reducing the number of trucks in the warehouse can quickly be calculated. Also, if additional resource is required (e.g. short-term hire equipment, or agency staff), these can be added to the impact on the operation can be reported.
