Carsten Funke, CEO of Picavi USA, the leader in pick-by-vision technology, was recently featured in Automation.com magazine. Funke discussed how new picking automation technology is a solution to workforce shortages. Industrial journalist, TR Cutler authored the article. According to Cutler, hiring for and retaining employees in the logistics industry is a herculean challenge; industry must rapidly adopt new automation tools to attract workers.
Funke insisted, “Adapting new technologies in capacity constrained operations is always a challenge. The length of time it takes to select, test, verify, migrate, provision, and train, causes deficits in productivity which are progressively becoming harder to justify. The need for modernization persists. Lockdowns and restrictions caused a drastic increase in eCommerce, forcing the logistics and manufacturing industries to keep up. This need for speed calls for rapid automation modernization. What was once considered ‘nice to have’ is now a necessity.”

Current vs. Future State of Warehouse Picking
Whether warehouse or distribution center, the current state of picking remains problematic. These challenges grow more serious as picking migrates to e-retail fulfillment. The metrics and justification of Google Glasses, as a picking methodology, must include a constant, iterative, and continuous process improvement system. This requirement defines the future state of warehouse picking; only Picavi is ready to meet the future state today.
Picavi will be exhibiting at the Home Delivery World 2022 Conference from August 31-September 1 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, PA at booth 635.
