Aug. 8, 2014 - PRLog -- In the current issue of Picking Perfection, a weekly e-news publication by Pcdata USA, larger items, such as furniture and appliances are not well-suited for Pick-to-light solutions, often because the installation would be too costly.  Similarly very small items such as micro-parts or tiny jewelry items are not easily hand-selected or coded for proper selection criteria. Not too expensive, not to cheap...just right in the middle.  More expensive items require secure distribution, and inexpensive product selection makes the automation technology ROI (return-on-investment) more difficult to justify.

Best Picking Practices

Large multi-national companies recognize the value in the best picking solutions.  Interestingly it is mid-sized and smaller companies that are more visionary and demand aggressive growth plans. These companies are looking to change the paradigms of the industry in which they operate and gain a competitive advantage using creative even out of the norm solutions.  Whether big or small, one distribution center or enterprise-wide multinationals, the willingness to investigate vendors, technology, and best practice picking solutions is a cultural perspective and quality characteristic.

According to Marc Braun, President of Pcdata USA, “A good mix of minimized cycle time to the customer, operating cost advantages and minimal inventory penalty drives best practices.  When order volume is low enough, and inventory cube is small enough that the direct to consumer channel does not really demand its own facility, picking performance can be reconfigured accordingly.  Similarly, like order processing operations (pick and pack for both stores and e-com) allows for processing economies.”

Pcdata USA Pick to Light systems are part of a lean process, offering shorter throughput times, fewer errors, significant cost savings;  additionally the result is increased customer satisfaction, a faster ability to supply products, and process transparency.
