Picking strategy break even point calculation
The model allows to justify the choice of picking strategy. There are two primary strategies used on the majority of warehouses across the globe - picking order-by-order (Strategy 1) and bulk picking with packing at pack table (Strategy 2). One of key factors which affect the efficiency of both strategies is the quantity of lines in order. Obviously for differently sized orders the most efficient strategy can also be different. Its also obvious that Strategy 1 is more likely better for big orders and Strategy 2 is more likely to be best for small ones.
