Full Summary:

SCL's spring class in Warehousing and Distribution completed a project for a Walgreens distribution center in Anderson, SC, to help improve order-picking.

The spring class in Warehousing and Distribution at the Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute (SCL) completed a project for a Walgreens distribution center in Anderson, SC, to help improve order-picking.

The team of graduate students visited the facility, picked orders to learn the processes, and then performed detailed computer simulations based on historical records of product flow. They then designed an order-picking protocol and adjustments to the product layout to support the protocol.
