Forming right allocation of items in picking area is the second approach for diminishing picking distance. The first approach is routing methods for customers’ orders picking. In practice, the principle of dividing of orders is used to determine which quantities are going to collect from storing area and which are going to pick from picking area. Also replenishment principles can affect picking distance. Several variants of organizing orders’ picking process in the warehouse have proposed by authors in earlier scientific papers. It has been determined parameters for forming right allocation sequence of SKU (stock keeping units) into picking addresses corresponding by picking route. Sometimes the warehouse can use combined parameter which includes two or more parameters for forming right allocation sequence of SKU into picking addresses.
