Picking from pallet and picking from boxes: a time and ergonomic study
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2017

The paper aims at studying different storing configurations and presentation strategies for the parts in a manual assembly system. Based on an experiment, the paper gives insight into how both picking time and ergonomic effort relate to the storing configuration, considering whether parts are stored on pallets or in smaller boxes, and considering whether or not the containers are tilted towards the picker.
