Abstract:

Rough planning of multi-level order-picking systems is a very difficult job because you have to consider a great number of versions. The planner has to decide on the basis of his experience, which systems will perform services best. In the early stage of development he cannot supply evidence that the systems he has chosen are better than others. Simulation can be a great means to ensure the decision of a planner by considering variability and changes in picking orders and assortments.
