Analysis of the impact of storage parameters and the size of orders on the choice of the method for routing order picking

Abstract

The paper presents an analysis of the impact of the number of picking aisles, slots in a rack, the size of pick lists, and the routing method on the performance of the order picking process. In the analysis, the forklift truck’s maneuvers such as turns back and turns aside, omitted by some scientists, arecconsidered. Although only random storage assignment is examined in this paper, the possible congestion effect is considered. Experiments were performed by the use of simulations.
