A New Picking Algorithm for Amazon Robotics (AR)
Amazon fulfillment centers are the bones of the company’s global operations network. Order picking plays a significant role in the overall process and accounts for a large part of the building’s ability to drive faster cycle times and higher throughput. Amazon’s revolutionary robotics system has reduced costs by identifying ways in which Amazon can process the picking of items faster and more efficiently across multiple floors and pick stations. The technology overall has led to significant performance improvement through stowing and picking inventory to facilitate sortation of multi-item shipments, reducing robotic systems travel by 31%. This has resulted in millions in savings per Amazon Robotics fulfillment center.
