This system is at an early stage of implementation and adherence within the company. With the lease of the current location coming due by the last day of April/200X, management has decided to relocate the company to a larger warehouse and with the move, concurrently implement changes necessary to adhere to the current software chosen to manage its internet sales presence. Project Objectives To move the company from its current warehouse to a facility with a minimal of 15,000 square feet of indoors floor area and office space, during the period of April 1st/200X to April 30th/200X, transferring its inventory and the administrative departments. The project also includes the closure of the current location and relocation of currently used services to the new facility. The project envisions the company’s adherence to an automated system for receiving, testing, refurbish, storage and shipping of product.
