A heuristic approach to allocate products in a warehouse: mathematical model and real applications

Favoritar este trabalho
In this study, we focus our attention on the warehouse logistics process. This project was developed in two phases: firstly, we made a comprehensive review on the basic concepts, mathematical models and some management strategies using a classical book; then, in the second phase, we propose an heuristic optimization method for positioning the products in the picking area of a warehouse, looking for minimize the walking distance to shipping orders, and applied this method in a real Warehouse.
