Order picking is a core aspect that affects the operational efficiency of a front storage. In this paper, a front storage of a supermarket to-home business was taken as the study case. Key operational data such as layout, SKU, staffing and order volume were analyzed. Then, the picking operations were modeled in the Flexsim simulation platform. Based on the simulation results, two picking strategies, “fruit picking” and “seeding”, were integrated to optimize the picking operations. The optimization results show a 33% reduction in average order picking time and a significant improvement in picking efficiency.
