ARANGO SERNA, Martín Darío; ZAPATA C, Julian Andres  and  PEMBERTHY, Jorge Isaac. Layout Restructuration of the Picking Area in an Industrialwarehouse. [online]. 2010, n.32, pp.54-61. ISSN 0121-4993.

The main objective of this paper is to present a proposal aimed at improving the distribution and picking processes in a warehouse of an industrial company. Initially, it outlines the theory and problem to be solved, and concludes with a description of a case study. Warehousing activities affect the total logistics costs of a company or supply chain most; thus, optimizing the required spaces for warehousing is one of the most important activities when attempting to reduce operative costs in a company. The purpose of this study is to reduce the time required for picking activities and, therefore, obtain an improvement in the service and a reduction of the area used in the warehouse, which leads to cost reductions.

Keywords : Warehouse; layout; picking; routing; simulation.
