Of technologies available to automate warehouse operations, pick-to-light enjoys success by boosting picker productivity with increased speed and accuracy of picks. That translates into better system throughput.
In general, here’s how pick-to-light works: Light indicator modules are mounted on storage areas. When a product stored in the location is needed, a light flashes. The worker picks the product and then presses the light button to confirm the pick. The system is paperless, so operators don’t need to take their eyes off the work at hand.
