Discrete Order Picking

 There are two basic implementations of order picking, zone and discrete order picking. “In discrete order picking a single worker walks to pick all the items necessary to fulfill a single customer order” (Eisenstein, 2006). Discrete order picking is demonstrated in Figure 2. As you can see, a picker is moving throughout the warehouse picking the various parts of an order before returning to a depot to return the fully picked order.The picker then gets the next order and repeats the process.

This Depicts discrete order picking implemented in such a way that the picker starts at the depot, picks items x, y, and z, and then returns to the depot to get the next order.
