Productivity and ergonomics
A quick return on investment is assured when the Pick to Light technique is applied for picking small, rapidly rotating items since it achieves higher productivity and precision. Furthermore, the order picker has both hands free. The Pick to Light system also significantly improves ergonomics, especially if it is combined with flow racks for easier replenishment. Performance rates are further increased if Pick to Light is combined with Zone Picking to minimize walking distances.
Pick to Light makes is possible to pick directly into the shipping carton. With the addition of features like an automated weighing scale, an automated box closer or a document feeder, this is an ideal solution for omni-channel fulfillment too.
The Pick to Light system software is a standard module of the extensive Inther LC software suite. Thanks to the multicolored pick lights, multiple employees can work on different orders at the same time. Real-time picking confirmation enables valuable insights, e.g. actual performance, remaining workload, monitoring of key performance indicators (KPIs), etc.
