Pcdata USA Pick to Light Technology Doubles Picking Rates

Pcdata USA Pick to Light Technology Doubles Picking Rates, as in the quickest method to perform task

PRLog - May 10, 2014 - DC Velocity reported that a Pick to Light system uses lighted beacons, usually mounted on storage racks, to direct order picking activity. In a typical Pick to Light operation, a computer electronically reads order pick tickets, determines the best picking sequence and transmits signals to the light modules on the racks. Flashing lights then guide workers to the items they need and indicate the quantity needed. When he or she is finished, the order picker presses a button so that the computer can verify that the correct item has been picked.

According to Antonio Rodrigues National Sales Manager, “The benefits of using Pick to Light technology starts with productivity. By minimizing the time order pickers spend searching for the correct SKUs, Pick to Light technology can double or triple picking rates. That, in turn, typically translates into a reduction in labor requirements. Then there is increased accuracy. The light-up displays make it virtually impossible to pick the wrong items. As a result, most DCs find that costs associated with returns and mispicks plummet soon after they install a pick-to-light system.”
