While optimizing a file
When it comes to selection, the warehouse manager also needs to think about the picking methodology to adopt. While most operations are still based on the Pick-to-Order approach (one of the most inefficient methods of picking), there are methodologies that can be implemented to dramatically improve and increase
The following are the most important methods of the picking process used in today’s repositories.
This process is more efficient, as it allows to collect multiple orders at the same time. In this method, the system provides a list of the most efficient ways to select several items at the same time. You can group individual item commands, and separate them into individual container sections to reduce/remove errors. Most cases require advanced warehouse management systems.
In this process, the SKUs are spread across multiple regions within the warehouse and are allocated to specific regions. Once the orders are received, they will move from one area to another via wagons, cages, pallets, conveyors, etc. Multiple picking lists are assigned to each region if the order contains more than one SKU, which greatly increases the accuracy, speed, and efficiency of the picking process. MetaWMS helps warehouses and distributors handle large numbers of SKUs and multiple orders.
Throughout the day, orders are aggregated and picked up in batches at set intervals. Using a powerful inventory management system,
