The characteristics most needed for an effective picking solution must offer machine to machine real-time productivity, according to manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler. in a recent IoT Now article, Cutler looks at SKU to SKU, Picker to Packer, high visibility, robust order pick displays with flexible mounting methods which best address adaptable warehousing operations.
Comparing pick technologies side-by-side often reveals that Pick-to-Light solutions have best-practice picking accuracy. The light indicators make it difficult to pick from the wrong location – or the incorrect amount – when the light is both the pick instruction and location indicator.
There is a clear cost-advantage and scalability to Pick-to-Light solutions determined by the number of SKUs; a display is required for each SKU picked. With voice or RF scanning equipment, the variable cost is determined by the number of operators picking.
IoT Now covers all industries using machine-to-machine communications (fixed line & wireless) for business-to-business users and consumers’ connected devices.
