East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/15/2015 -- Pcdata USA reports that mispicks in 2016 will cost individual warehouses more than $500,000. A single mispick costs a warehouse about $22, according to a report from Intermec. Over the course of a year, that adds up to big money. DC Velocity staff reported that data a few years earlier and current data suggest $33 per mispick is more accurate. According to the results of the earlier survey conducted for Intermec, a developer of mobile data-capture solutions, a single mispick multiplied by the average number of mispicks reported in a single distribution center amount to over $500,000 annually, on average.
More than half (52 percent) of the 250 respondents reported a pick accuracy rate of less than 97 percent. On top of that, 19 percent do not measure the costs of mispicks in any way, which suggests that the impact of such errors on the supply chain may be even greater than reported. Survey respondents indicated that they consider achieving high pick accuracy rates to be key to improving profit margins. Forty-seven percent said that picking was an area where cost savings could easily be achieved. In addition, 59 percent of respondents said they were using a "perfect order" metric to gauge picking accuracy and identify areas for improvement.
Pcdata USA will be exhibiting at the 2016 MODEX show April 4-7, 2016 at the Georgia World Congress Center. Pcdata USA will be located at booth #4857. Pcdata USA will be presenting a special session titled, "To Automate or Not to Automate," on Monday, April 4 at 2:15 pm in Theater H and on Thursday, April 7 at 12:00 pm in Theater G.
