Chunking in location numbering

  1. 1. Chunking in location numbering Dividing information into smaller units + application in location numbers.
  2. 2. Chunking? • The human memory stores information faster in proportion to how well it is structured. • So: divide information into small ‘chunks’.
  3. 3. • Blocks of 1, 2 or a maximum of 3 letters and/or numbers are called chunks. • These are all stored in short term memory and each require the same amount of memory space. • So here we see 4 chunks. Application in location numbering (1) AA 001 03 A
  4. 4. Application in location numbering (2) Section number Shelf height Aisle Building Subdivision of the shelf AA (0)01 (0)3 A • What do the chunks mean?
  5. 5. Application in location numbering (3) • Do not add periods, dashes or other punctuation, because these are all extra chunks that place a higher burden on the short term memory of the order picker. • This increases the chance of errors. AA-001-03-A • Absorbing information into your memory is almost like saying it out loud. It’s like you’re saying: ‘AA dash zero zero one dash zero three dash A.’ AA.001.03.A
