Skill in Methods
Method Grades
Not Observed (NOB) = activity not observed Below (B) = somewhat clumsy, fumbles, hesitations (loses time) Meet (M) = steady, proficient, average (neither gains or loses time) Exceed (E) = safely reduces motion, quick, smooth (gains time)
Method Steps
1. Confirms assignment on the VMU without undue delay and fills out shipping label accurately.
2. Operator selects efficient picking order and start location.
3. Travels to empty pallet area to obtain correct platform type using a direct route.
4. Travels to selected pick location in most direct route possible.
5. Operator scans to verify location and pallet are correct before picking cases.
6. Parks lift next to pick location, aligns pallet with pick bay to reduce walking distance.
7. Places cases upright on customer pallet and minimizes walking around pallet for case placement.
8. Builds shippable ready pallet with one platform.
9. Selects all cases within two bays without moving equipment.
10. Enters in picked quantity on VMU and proceeds in direct route to next pick location.
11. if count back, operator accurately counts remaining quantity and enters in correct quantities.
12. If inventory issue exist, follow appropriate warehouse procedures to resolve.
13. Once complete, wraps pallet with 6 wraps and no more than 9, in a tight pattern from bottom of platform to top.
14. Scans shipping label and places label on top right corner of completed pallet.
15. Proceeds to designated staging area in direct route, depositing pallet in the correct lane requested on VMU.
16. Scans the correct stage location to complete the pick and proceeds to next assignment in an efficient manner.

Performance Estimate
Performance Grades
Scoring Performance Estimate Below (B) = less than 0 Meet (M) = greater than 0 but less than +10 Exceed (E) = greater than +10
Skills in Methods
Method Characteristics: Below = somewhat clumsy, adds motion, fumbles, hesitation, errors Meet = follows methods, proficient, consistent, steady, average Exceed = precise and smooth, quick and sure, reduces motions, smart, perfection
Effort Level
Effort Characteristics: Below = slow, not best effort, slow motion Meet = steady, enthusiastic, average Exceed = fast, focused, sometimes too much
Time Utilization
Utilization Characteristics: Below = does not try to avoid delay, exceeds delay allowances, stops working to talk Meet = minimizes delay by following the methods, continues working while talking, sometimes successful at avoiding delay Exceed = eliminates delay by eliminating motion, always works - never talks, always successful at avoiding delay

Boost Efficiency and Productivity with an Order-Picking Performance Evaluation Template

Performance evaluation is an important part of assessing the efficiency and effectiveness of order-picking operations. This template provides an easy-to-use method for evaluating the performance of order pickers in a warehouse environment.

The assessment template checklist begins by evaluating the order picker’s overall performance, which includes their accuracy, speed, and safety. Accuracy is assessed by measuring how accurately the picker is able to locate and pick the correct items from the warehouse shelves. Speed is measured by the amount of time it takes a picker to complete a given task, and safety is evaluated by looking at the number of preventable accidents or errors.

Please note that this checklist template is a hypothetical appuses-hero example and provides only standard information. The template does not aim to replace, among other things, workplace, health and safety advice, medical advice, diagnosis or treatment, or any other applicable law. You should seek your professional advice to determine whether the use of such a checklist is appropriate in your workplace or jurisdiction.
