Definition: What is Batch Picking?

Coordinating the transfer of inventory to permit selecting goods to fill more than one order simultaneously is known as batch picking. Orders batched together enable the warehouse (and/or manufacturer) to cut the number of trips to the same spot.
On the other hand, short-interval scheduling that helps assign orders into groups (a.k.a. waves) is known as wave picking. The practice allows joint release of goods, letting management coordinate several activities at once, either in parallel or in sequence.
Both methods are important as they help reduce the time a picker needs to select and deliver items by about 60 percent.
Batch picking is generally the preferred method in smaller operations, while wave picking works better in larger environments.
