Picking Perfection News Magazine Explored Lean Pick to Light Solutions
East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/07/2014 -- The current issue of Picking Perfection, a weekly newsletter publication, discussed one of the complaints of standard Pick-to-light (PTL) installations. It is rare, but there are PTL solutions that are "click & go" and can be installed in nearly every environment with minimal operational impact. The best of breed PTLs must offer a simple Graphical User Interface (GUI) which results in a quick training cycle - employees are at full capability in days, not months and without IT engineers for support. The hallmark of these lean solutions is a simplicity in design which translates directly into speed in deployment and maintenance, bringing the benefits online quickly. Another element to the PTL selection process must include that hardware components are modular and user replaceable, minimizing maintenance and support costs.
The October 6th issue of Picking Perfection also examined the costs of employee turnover. Replacing each material handling worker will cost between 50-400% of their salary. The time it takes to replace a material handling worker and achieve similar work productivity from a highly effective current employee makes the issue of employee retention more important than ever.
