The omni-channel, e-commerce customer wants the right product delivered every time and usually within a few days; increasingly the next day…even the same day ordered.
Order picking mistakes in a distribution facility can cost between 3 and 30 dollars per error, not including the cost of a dissatisfied customer. A proper order picking solution reduces errors to the bare minimum. In a typical distribution center the majority of the SKU's will be slow movers and a minority will be fast moving products. Depending on the required picking velocity, there are different strategies which offer the best results. Finding the best technology for each SKU group is uniquely combined into a single best-in-class lean manufacturing hybrid system by Pcdata USA.
