Selection of locations that are to be visited by the picker and selection of their visiting order is one of main problems in warehouse management. Generally, the main goal that is to be achieved by the decision maker is minimisation of distance. It is justified, because travelling constitutes over half of order-picking time. However, it is possible that the picker would have to visit more locations in shorter path, what may result in longer searching and picking time. Therefore, the picking time and its influence on the total order-picking time will be analysed. Locations will be selected by means of the synthetic variable called the Taxonomic Measure of Location’s Attractiveness (Polish abbreviation – TMAL).
