CASI understands that order picking methods vary as greatly as the distribution centers that methods are used in. The characteristics of the product being handled, total number of transactions, total number of orders, picks per order, quantity per pick, picks per SKU, total number of SKUs, value-added processing such as private labeling, and whether you are handling piece pick, case pick, or full-pallet loads are all factors that will affect your decision on a method for order picking. In many cases a combination of picking methods is needed to handle diverse product and order characteristics.
The selection of the picking methodology should the productivity in picks per hour, the cycle time for the order to get to the shipping dock and the accuracy of the method. CASI offers multiple picking methodologies in our SolidPick™ module allowing our application engineers to match the picking methodology to the operation and ROI requirement.
