Warehousing/Alpha numeric vs full numeric?
What is considered to be the more efficient/flexible method when locating and marking your bin locations? Eg. aisle 01, ROW 01, level A. 01 01A. VERSUS aisle A, ROW 01 and level A. I prefer numeric (01 01A) due to the extra flexibility provided by numeric (99 different options as opposed to 26)can you advise best practice?
Kevin, you are correct. For ease and flexibility you need to go with 0101A. But the most important thing that you can do is to always you the same location method and make sure that it fits your warehouse structure and computer flexibility.
