GOMEZ, Rodrigo A; GIRALDO, Oscar G  and  CAMPO, Emiro A. Minimum Time Order Batching in the Put away Operation Considering k Homogeneous Equipment using metaheuristics. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2016, vol.27, n.6, pp.53-62. ISSN 0718-0764.

This paper presents the development and validation of a metaheuristic for minimum time order batching in put away operations considering k material handling equipment. The method also serves to locate the depot and to determine the put away list size, among other factors. Experimental validation was performed by a statistical design named split plot. As a result of the experiment it was obtained that metaheuristic INS (Intelligent Neighborhood Search) generated time savings between 24 and 50 minutes per batch compared with the classical rule FCFS (First Come, First Served). It is demonstrated that the proposed metaheuristic not only contributes to logistic but also to the operational efficiency of warehouse management.

Keywords : put away; warehouse order batching; logistics and metaheuristic.
