Abstract

Title: Degree project in Logistics – Actions to enhance the productivity in the order picking operations at Atea Logistics

Subject: Degree project in Logistics, the Business Administration and Economics Programme, 30 credits

Authors: Thomas Aronsson & Richard Pettersson

Tutor: Åsa Gustafsson & Roger Stokkedal

Keywords: Warehouse layout, article placement, ABC-analysis, picking techniques, batch picking, picking routes and route planning.

Background: Atea Logistics has the expectation that their turnover and sales will rise in the autumn of 2011. Because of the increase in the turnover and sales there is a need to review current warehouse layout, article placement and picking functions.

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to identify existing warehouse layout, article placement and picking functions and from that information identify appropriate actions to enhance the productivity in the order picking operations at Atea Logistics.

Methodology: The study has been performed on a specific company by following a detailed line, therefore it is characterized by a case study design.

Conclusion and result: The conclusion of this thesis is that if the recommended actions are adopted it leads to an increase in productivity. This conclusion leads to a result which means that Atea Logistics can pick 68 order lines per hour instead of 41 order lines per hour, representing an increase of 66 %.

Suggestions for further research: The authors have identified two main areas that Atea Logistics has a need to review, which is inventory levels and how new articles should be treated.
