Abstract:Picking and packaging is the last step between the company and their customers. Therefore failures in picking cause not only costs and delays by returns of delivered goods; but also loss of image. In order to decrease picking-failures and their costs; quality inspections have to be integrated in the routing of picking and packing. This leads to complex interactions between individual picking and inspections processes. Therefore; quality; costs and cycle time are difficult to estimate. The problem can be solved by using simulation; which has become a powerful tool (Crostack; 2004).

But before a useful simulation can be created; picking-processes have to be defined and analysed. In order to detect weaknesses in these processes and afterwards optimize them; the defined picking-processes have to be combined with a suitable inspection strategy. In the following paper these steps are presented and transferred into a simulation.
