It's not all butt plugs. There's anime and dildos in there, too.

"We have top men working on it now."
"Who?"
"Top... men."

All I know is, I keep them plenty busy. I buy almost everything, including toilet paper and cat food, from Amazon. Rarely set foot in a real store anymore.

I back up MeGrendel. I was using chaotic storage 13 years ago and it wasn't new even then.

Also, not every product they use is chaotically stored. The fast movers (known as "A" products) won't be stored in the middle of that lot; they're so popular they'll have a dedicated pick slot that's much closer to the despatch area that you take your completed order to. It saves walking time, which is really important in a warehouse.

If your algorithm's are good enough, an employee can save 20 secs per order perhaps. If he can do 10 orders an hour, over 8 hrs a shift, and does 5 shifts a week, 47 weeks a year, you can save 104 man hrs a year, or 2.5 workers. Given you could have 1,000 workers in some of the big plants, saving 2.5 workers per year per employee is maybe $100k saving from adjusting your warehouse programming a bit. Easy money.

We are slowly, but unequivocally, heading for this.

They talk about 'Chaotic storage' as if they invented it.

We've used Random Storage for decades, all you have to do is keep up with where you store it. This can be done manually, or by computer. A barcode system does make it much easier though.

If you loose your pen I'm sure you will find a packet somewhere on the shelves if everything is randomly placed.
