E-commerce dynamics are making the design of distribution systems more and more challenging, especially in grocery retailing. The use of stores as picking location for e-fulfilment brings the opportunity of both offering fast deliveries and exploiting synergies with the traditional channel. However, efficiently designing a store-based distribution system turns out to be a critical task. This paper addresses the tactical problem of selecting stores to be used as picking location and defining the ...

As a large number of companies are resorting to increased product variety and customization, a growing attention is being put on the design and management of part feeding systems. Recent works have proved the effectiveness of hybrid feeding policies, which consist in using multiple feeding policies in the same assembly system. In this context, the assembly line feeding problem (ALFP) refers to the selection of a suitable feeding policy for each part. In literature, the ALFP is addressed either b...

In a context where companies are striving to produce highly customised goods in small batches and within short lead times, increasing attention is being put on the design and management of part feeding systems. This research is the first to model automated part feeding to supermarkets in a factory environment, considering an innovative technology called vertical robotic storage and retrieval systems. This technology allows automating the storage, picking, and internal transportation activities i...

The evolution of customer requirements has led companies to pursue mass customization and personalization strategies, increasing the complexity of part feeding operations in assembly systems. At the same time, emerging technologies, based on mobile robots, promise to support material handling activities in an efficient yet flexible manner. This paper studies part feeding to assembly stations with Vertical Robotic Storage and Retrieval Systems (VRSRS), a new technology that allows automating both...
