BJs Wholesale Club, Inc. is the leading wholesale club chain operating in the eastern United States. Since the 1980, wholesale clubs have grown very popular and hence, very competitive. In order to maintain its market in the United States, BJs must incorporate labor standards for their order pickers and forklift drivers. BJs can use this information to measure and optimize their productivity. Our solution will be based on our observations from the Stoneham, MA BJs and a mathematical model to help determine the optimal labor scheduling requirements. To verify our solution we will use a simulation to provide support for its implementation into BJs Wholesale Club.
