In recent years, a large-scale logistic center plays an important role in mail-order business with Internet. In the logistic center, the efficient managing is required to deliver products to customers as soon as possible. Researches to efficiently control the logistic center have been done in the various approaches. This study proposed a new method for the order-picking problem considering worker’s jamming at the same shelf in the logistic center. In the proposed method, we formulate worker’s scheduling in the logistic center as Job-shop Scheduling Problem and optimize this problem. Numerical experiments show the proposed method improve worker’s scheduling compared with rule-based scheduling.
