Picking Perfection News Magazine Examined Pickcart Effectiveness During Picking Process
East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/21/2014 -- The current issue of Picking Perfection, suggested that maximizing efficiency during the picking process, multi-order pickcarts should be equipped with route optimization software. This software ensures that operators travel the shortest distance possible when filling orders and reduces order pick time in high stock keeping unit (SKU) count. These pickcarts are flexible and can be deployed as a stand-alone solution or combined with other picking technologies. Pickcarts support batch picks of multiple orders simultaneously and can demonstrate an increase picking speed upwards of 300% over other picking methods. These data also support that mobile picking carts simultaneously improve worker ergonomics via reduction in trips through the warehouse.
The October 20th issue of Picking Perfection, discussed how some pickcarts can handle up to 50 orders. Easily integrated with existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) and warehouse management system (WMS) software, the pickcart software must be fully customizable and should run on any Windows-based computer, using standard wireless network protocols. Dedicated servers or complex network infrastructure should not be required. It is best that control software includes a navigation view that shows each cart's location on a graphical, overhead schematic of a warehouse, or picking zone-however management wants to configure the cart system.
