Present paper aims to optimize the order batching problem expressed in mathematical language. There, the design and solving steps of order batching problem are based on genetic algorithm. The genetic algorithm in solving process variation method is used to realize the optimization of the model in order to enhance the efficiency of batch picking which increases customer’s satisfaction. Our result explored herein lies that the single order picking equipment limited factor has been extended to multiple sorting equipment in distribution center selection process.
