Aiming at the multibox 3D packing problem of heterogeneous extrudable items in e-commerce retail department stores, the optimization goal is to select appropriate packaging materials for packing all items in the order. On this basis, the number of packaging materials used is the least and the space utilization rate is high. A heuristic algorithm is...

Order picking is the part with the highest proportion of operation cost and time in the warehouse. The characteristics of small-batch and multi-frequency current orders reduce the applicability of the traditional layout in the warehouse. Besides this, the improvement of the layout will also affect the picking path, such as the Chevron warehouse lay...

... For non-traditional warehouse layouts, most of the current research is focused on the V-shaped layout [19][20][21] and fishbone layout [22][23][24][25][26][27], and less research is conducted on the leaf layout [28]. Therefore, we select the leaf layout as the research object in this paper to enrich the study of the routing strategy in the picking operation in non-traditional layout warehouses; 2. ...
... Because of the complex structure and mutual interactions of warehouse processes [2,3], frequently with opposed goals, the optimization of every aspect of warehouse operation is a must for achieving warehouse efficiency. An activity that, according to [4], occupies 50-75% of all operating costs is order-picking. Therefore, any optimization of the orderpicking process, referred in the rest of the paper just as order-picking, increases warehouse efficiency. ...
