English term or phrase:wave planning
Namn på rubrik: "Order Management & Wave Planning", i dokument för större tillverkare av logistikssystem.
"Wave Planning is so-called because the work is divided up into waves. Conceptually, the Pickers perform the picks and must deliver these picks to the Packers before the Packers can pack. Then the Packers must pack before the Loaders can load and so on. Therefore, we divide the picks into Waves. Wave #1 is delivered to Packing before Wave #2 is Picked. Then Wave #1 is delivered to Loaders while Wave #2 is Packed. These evens out the work load."
