Intelligent Picking For Increased Productivity
Automated storage and retrieval systems allow operators to perform at higher levels. By delivering items directly to the operator, travel and search time commonly associated with shelving is drastically reduced. This allows the operator to spend more time picking, increasing overall productivity.
Due to reduced travel and search time in an automated storage and retrieval system, picking from shelving that required several workers, often only requires one worker to handle the same volume. Automated storage and retrieval systems are a great option when labor is scarce or unreliable. Typically, labor can be reduced by 2/3 while maintaining pick volume.
More often, facilities are choosing to maintain current labor levels when implementing automated storage and retrieval systems to increase picking productivity – resulting in higher picking capabilities without additional labor.
