The storage location assignment policy is one of the essential factors of the warehouse order picking. In this paper, we have proposed a novel storage location assignment policy for storing items in a warehouse that corresponds to print production environment. The approach utilizes the concepts of autonomous cell way of partitioning resources in print production systems. The results of the application of this approach are compared with the well-known cube per order index policy (COI) using case studies from print service industry.
