Finding Your Balance

Sequencing and balancing work throughout your warehouse so the orders arrive at the right time down in the shipping lane area is a constant challenge when you have different methods of order fulfillment in your picking areas. Some of the typical parameters evaluated when sequencing work include: type of material handling equipment, operator picking rates, order profiles and staffing levels.

Some typical planning functions include:
