Highly Efficient Picking with Pcdata PickStar Pick to Light


East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/02/2014 -- Radek Poskocil, Head of Production Quality & Engineering at ASSA ABLOY noted that “Pcdata equipped two of the four production lines in the Czech facility with a PickStar pick-to-light system. Previously two separate picking areas, the PickStar installation enabled them to be combined into one highly efficient picking module with 350 positions in total – with the PickStar solution combining intelligence, software and hardware all in one product. The solution has led to increased productivity and a significant reduction in errors originating in the picking process. We used to work with paper picking lists to pick each production order. This was a laborious and error prone method. Now we can complete the same volume of work with one less operator and more importantly, claims have dropped more than 55 percent. If we use pick-to-light in the other production lines I believe we could make even more improvement. The speed of the ROI makes the investment very attractive.”
