Information in this document applies to any platform.
We are performing Bulk picking for a large amount of units and records, this is done by picking all the units for an item at once and when this is done WMS later creates an OBLPN per order.
When the picking is being done for each item, the picking process is taking too long to be operationally feasible.
For testing we used 8 SKU for all the orders and the results were:
Task nnnnn0: 800 units (100 per item) picking time 5 minutes:
Task nnnnn1: 1600 units (200 per item) picking time 17 minutes.
Task nnnnn2: 3200 units (400 per item) picking time 53 minutes
As shown in the data, the processing time gets worse exponentially as we increase the number of orders, which is a problem because we need to run larger waves.
