Could you please advise. For a customer I have to set up the following picking route (Walking route):
Situation: Each Aisle has 100 storage bins
Aisle A -> Bin 01 till Bin 100
Aisle B -> Bin 01 til Bin 100
Following Bins are involved for picking
A-47( This is the last BIN in Aisle A and the first location in Aisle B is B-28. So order picker has to start in beginning of Row B)
C-01 (Order picker has to start in Beginning of Row C)
D-85 (Order picker has to start at end of row D)
So S route will not work for this customer. Question, which user exit can I use to set up this picking route?
In this example you say that each aisle is number 001 -> 100 and in my experience, most warehouses number the bins in the same direction (i.e. front to back) and then complain when the picker finishes at the back of aisle A and has to start again at the front of aisle B etc. thus loosing productivity.
There are a 3 ways of achieving the optimum pick route (S route) that I know of;
Hope this helps
