Maximum Warehouse Efficiency Found through Hybrid Picking According to Pcdata USA
East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/12/2013 -- A hybrid picking solution is often best for different areas of the picking operation to extract the maximum possible efficiency across warehouse and supply chain. Pcdata USA Pick to Light (PTL) is often chosen as the most efficient picking solution in high density unit picking environments. By eliminating walking time and producing the most intensive picking environment possible, the additional productivity benefits are accomplished without making high investments.
According the Senior Manager with Pcdata, Antonio Rodrigues, “In a standard warehouse environment, it is typical that 20% of the products often represent 80% of the revenues, work, and costs. In typical 80/20 environments, industry leaders can achieve 80% of savings by investing only 20% of the total costs. When SKU take-up and order line frequency is properly analyzed, Pcdata USA found for many industry leaders, voice and RF picking solutions are not necessarily the most effective in terms of speed and accuracy. PTL is an overlooked tool that can be over 30% more effective than rival order pick methods.”
Pcdata USA spent years analyzing the picking process in a broad range of environments and deployed a wide range of solutions in various industries in automation and warehousing. They realized that a single method of order assembly is not the most efficient – simply deploying voice or bar code scanning (RF) solutions in many order picking environments often risks missing significant benefits.
