Picking systems provide very smooth and efficient operations if implemented correctly. GRSI integrates picking systems with its FastTrak OMS batch and wave and dynamic slotting systems to improve picking processes. Orders can be batched based on many factors including packaging type, quantity of items per order, final destination, size, and others. Slotting organizes items by calculating optimal and convenient picking scenarios based order statistics, item velocity, and other user-defined criteria. The result reduces aisle congestion and “walk-labor”, which allows client’s to have fewer, more efficient pickers. The solution creates an efficient picking environment with faster fulfillment cycle times. GRSI’s extensive experience provides integration of any picking equipment from any manufacturer:
A pick-to-light system starts with a tilted flow rack with any desired number of outward facing SKUs outfitted with a pick display next to each SKU. Each display lights up one at a time to show the necessary quantity of the specific SKU necessary. On the other side of the flow rack is a packing station. Packing stations have a specific number of bays that can be tailored based on user specifications. Above each bay is a put display that lights up and shows the appropriate number of each picked item to place into carton, tote, or container. Behind the packing station is an outbound conveyor that conveys completed orders to shipping.
