The Advantages of Simultaneous Picking Strategies in Light-Directed Order Fulfillment
A Major Advance in the Pick-to-Light Methodology
Right now, millions of pick-to-light modules are being illuminated in distribution centers across the country, directing operators to their next correct pick.
However, are these legacy pick-to-light systems keeping their owners competitive by today’s performance standards? There have been many breakthroughs in light-directed technologies which strongly differentiate the more sophisticated systems of today from their legacy counterparts.
One major advance is the application of Lightning Pick’s pick-to-display hardware technologies to support simultaneous order picking strategies, opposed to the sequential approach executed by pick-to-light systems. This white paper illustrates each technology, outlines the benefits of simultaneous order picking, and provides case studies of two recent adopters of pick-to-display solutions over their previous pick-to-light systems and the benefits they quickly achieved after making the transition.
