Doctoral Thesis Layout and Routing Methods for Warehouses
Layout and Routing Methods for Warehouses discusses aspects of order picking in warehouses. Order picking is the process by which products are retrieved from storage to meet customer demand. Various new routing methods are introduced to determine efficient sequences in which products have to be retrieved from storage. Furthermore, a new method is given to determine a layout for the order picking area. The objective is to minimize the average distance traveled per route by the order pickers.
