Picking of units
LIGHT PICKING SOLUTION
The “Light Picking” solution is the best-known option for performing and sorting unit orders operations. This solution increases the product selection productivity, accuracy and cost efficiency of this labour-intensive process.
The operator reads the barcode of the box with a hand-held scanner. Then, the computer system illuminates several displays at the same time and shows the required quantity of each one.
The operator picks up the units indicated by the illuminated display and places them in the box which is then confirmed by pressing the “V” key on the display. After that, the display is switched off. The next step is to repeat the same procedure until all the displays are switched off and the order has been completed. Once the order has been completed, the operator leaves the box on the roller conveyor so that it can be moved to another picking area with pending tasks.
The “Light Picking” solution improves the efficiency of the picking orders by reducing the time spent walking between items required on it. Moreover, this solution eliminates the associated mistakes with reading paper orders.
