  1. A U (or J)-shaped layout for shelving that minimized the clerks’ physical movements in examining and retrieving the desired prescription bag. This style of configuration is practical for small to medium-sized will call systems.  The system used in the study contained, on average, 500 prescription bags (including several oversized paper bags and boxes on the floor).
  2. A numeric filing system which eliminated confusion and reconfirmation of names that often occurs in surname based filing methodologies
  3. Labels on hanging bags containing large, bold-font, easy–to-read numbers

Even with this efficient system, misplaced packages took over 12 minutes of time to resolve and return to stock remained a lengthy process that was infrequently performed because it was considered a tedious, labor intensive task.
