Order picking as an element of products flow control in logistic hubs

Michał Jakubiak

Abstract

In order to be competitive in a dynamic environment, companies keep on looking for some new managing concepts. In recent years there was a focus on logistics concept of management which is based on the complex analysis of the flow of goods and information. The understanding of the way in which the goods are moved between the specific elements of logistic chain allows to plan and optimize individual stages of goods movement. In the modern logistic system every manipulation of materials is subjected to detailed verification at the stage of planning. The small shifts of goods on a short distances, which happen in the premises of a given building, and between the building and transport intermediary, are starting to play a very important part. The order picking problems are especially visible in logistic centres which are becoming more and more important in the modern supply chain management. They focus on: finding the best possible way to locate the goods on a given space, using the limited capacity of the building to the utmost, and reducing the number of manipulations with a given product. The main aim of the research, carried out by the author, is: •to determine the components of order picking process and to identify the elements which control its completion. •A critical analysis of different approaches, described in scientific literature •To draw up a procedure of order picking’s method choice taking into consideration the shape of an order picking zone, methods of movement through a zone, structure of an order picking list
