Reduce costs and avoid errors through digitized order picking
Picking systems with RFID connect warehouse workers to an inventory management system and logistics software via wireless handheld scanners. The system passes on data about the location of an item and the quantity to be picked to the worker. Once an item is added to the order, the handheld scanner confirms the transaction and the next task is called.
These digital systems offer great advantages over error-prone paper-based picking. Even barcode systems can’t match a wrist-worn RFID scanner for picking speed in terms of picks/min. When the transponders are mounted on the shelf, a pick operation can be checked completely indirectly in the background, which maximizes efficiency and can extremely reduce the error rate.
