  9. 9. Once the locations are identified, the next thing is to plan the type of picking 1. One-sided Picking 2. Two-sided Picking 3. Optimal Path Picking There are mainly 3 types to pick the inventories in a warehouse
  10. 10. 1. One-sided Picking The order picker visits the locations on one side of the aisle and then returns to visit the locations on the other side. This is effective when aisles are reasonably wide or when the picker has to visit at least 50% of the locations in that aisle.
  11. 11. The order picker traverses the aisle only once and picks from both the sides at one pass. This could be more effective and time saving. This will even reduce the effort of travel significantly. This is referred to as snake path or S-shape picking. 2. Two-sided Picking
  12. 12. 3. Optimal Path Picking This rigid sequence of locations does not, necessarily, lead to the shortest pick path. The ideal scenario is for the WMS system to fully optimize the pick sequence however, very few WMS cab be able to do this.
