Martedì 26 settembre alle 10.00 presso il Laboratorio Reti di Calcolatori (stanza 2.10b) del Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell’Università Roma Tre, il Prof. Ulrich Pferschy dell’Università di Graz terrà un seminario per dottorandi dal titolo:
Intra-Logistics Optimization in a Complex Warehouse
Abstract: We consider the warehouse logistics system of Blue Tomato, a sporting goods and apparel sales company with a strong e-commerce business. We focus on the order picking process in its central warehouse where every day articles for a few thousand orders are manually picked from the shelves. This is done by human pickers, who use a cart to store a limited number of orders. The resulting planning task consists of two parts: At first, the orders have to be partitioned into batches allowing an efficient picking tour in the warehouse. Secondly, for each batch a routing problem for the picker has to be solved, which can be modelled as an instance of a TSP on a special graph. The warehouse has several non-standard features which require a specialized algorithmic approach. Our framework yields a significant improvement on the total tour lengths of 34.4% on average.
Il prof. Pferschy sarà disponibile per ulteriori discussioni e approfondimenti fino al prossimo giovedì mattina.
