Pick to Light is acknowledged to be the fastest operator-based picking strategy available to execute broken case quantity order fulfillment operations.
Ideal for team-based approaches like zone picking, Pick to Light increases the pick rate productivity, accuracy and cost efficiency of this labour intensive operation by reducing the walk time, eliminating the reading errors and simplifying the task throughout the pick process.
Like with many material handling technologies the cost of Pick to Light has reduced significantly over the past few years.
Where today it is viable to implement over a wider range of SKU’s. The cost and feasibility of the light modules means they are adaptable to other processes in a warehouse.
For example inclusion on batch picking trolleys, Put to Light applications, and many others.
How it works
Pick to Light uses light modules to display the quantities to pick from each location. When the operator has completed the pick, they confirm it by pressing the button on the module. If a short pick is required, the quantity can be decreased on the module prior to confirming the quantity.
Pick to Light modules have multiple uses, and are not limited to picking from locations. They can also be used for Put to Light and on batch picking trolleys. In these cases, they are used to instruct the picker on where to put the stock, rather than where to pick it from.
