Abstract – This project design presents and analyze how a space problem was solved, inside a veterinary pharmaceutical warehouse, located in Panama City, Panama Republic. This veterinary pharmaceutical facility needs more space capacity specifically at dry season due to low demand and less orders at that year time. The Six Sigma DMAIC methodology was used to improve the warehouse space of this facility, by improving the space distribution layout, where existing non-use spaces were re-organized to use it as new warehouse areas, incrementing the racks and sacks capacity in a significant way. The new warehouse layout shows also new circulations areas and access for a new finished product warehouse and for a new product dispatch area at the outside of the facility.
