Arno Kuhl, supply chain manager at Schloss Wachenheim AG shared, “Our goal was for employees to have both hands free throughout the process. Especially for handling fragile goods, this was important to us. Lists or scanners are just a hindrance there.” Since conventional Pick-by-Scan and Pick-by-Paper solutions proved too inefficient, the company turned to Pick-by-Vision expert Picavi.
The advantages of Pick-by-Vision quickly became apparent. With the help of the smart glasses, the time required can be reduced considerably, as the tedious final inspection is integrated directly into the picking process. For this purpose, the barcode of the item was linked to that of the corresponding carton. The picker finally scans it at the item’s storage location to confirm the product. With the Smart Data Analytics function, the company uses the data generated during picking to identify optimization potential in the technical warehouse infrastructure or the arrangement of items in the warehouse.
Current vs. Future State of Warehouse Picking
Whether warehouse or distribution center, the current state of picking remains problematic. These challenges grow more serious as picking migrates to e-retail fulfillment. The metrics and justification of Google Glasses, as a picking methodology, must include a constant, iterative, and continuous process improvement system. This requirement defines the future state of warehouse picking; only Picavi is ready to meet the future state today.
