John Lewis Case Study - With the changing demand patterns, fewer full bins are being required and a greater proportion of goods need to be picked at the picking stations. What alternatives may be considered to accommodate this? When thinking of alternatives to cater for changing demand patterns, there are a few things which could be feasible in this case. Firstly, by increasing the amount of picking bins in order to handle the orders which include large order amounts from diverse customers. This helps organize the flow of a wide array of potential demand. Secondly, by increasing the overall number of stations for picking, the organization is able to more effectively and efficiently manage a larger number of different orders. Finally, another alternative would be to keep popular, more routine products closer to the pick stations. This limits the amount of time spent in transit within the warehouse for items which are more likely to be used in orders, which, over time, can greatly impact the overall time spent per order. - Should home shopping continue to have its own dedicated area within the SANDC, with its own inventory and OSR equipment?
