Abstract
This paper describes a method for the design of an order picking system in a manufacturing environment. Unlike order picking systems in warehouses, there is almost no literature available concerning order picking systems in a manufacturing environment. We start by defining the needed input parameters, followed by a parts classification method. This leads to the calculation of order specifications (order lines, volume, weight,…). The needed throughput, available floor space and associated costs then define the most appropriate order picking system under the given circumstances.
