Industrial journalist, TR Cutler discussed during COVID-19 more manufacturers have taken a close look at logistics fulfilment processes, such as pick-by-vision. The recent article is featured in Manufacturing Matters magazine here.
According to Cutler, pick-by-vision glasses and complimentary technology offer real-time data that permits manufacturers to benchmark the warehouse and fulfilment processes. Interfaced with manufacturers’ WMS (Warehouse Management System), it is simple to communicate with the worker on the shop floor via the smart glasses without returning to the home base. The analytics monitor order changes in real-time and reduces inventory by eliminating bottlenecks and reducing work-in-process (WIP).
COVID is transforming warehouses, 3PL fulfillment, and picking models away from pick-to-light and voice picking because they lack some of the much-needed safety precautions and social distancing required by OSHA protocols. Cutler expects pick-by-vision to become the go-to solution throughout 2021 and reports that the throughput productivity adds to the efficacy of the technology. The solution is intrinsic for WCS (warehouse control systems) and WMS solutions across a broad spectrum of industrial applications.
