Abstract or Summary
  • This paper addresses the order-picking problem in a warehouse and establishes some criteria for the planning, design, and improvement of a warehouse layout to increase the order-picking efficiency. A simulation model has been developed to study the effect of warehouse layout on the order-picking throughput. Three major design elements of the warehouse layout are considered: crossing aisles, picking aisles orientation, and dock location. The system throughput is measured in terms of the traveling and waiting time of the picking vehicles. The results indicate that the order-picking efficiency can be substantially improved by orienting the picking aisles perpendicular to the dock, placing or locating the crossing aisles parallel to the dock and by locating the dock on the longitudinal side of the warehouse.
