Industrial Journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, recently reported that IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) Pick-to-Light devices are the best choice for more than 90 percent of the distribution, warehouse, and cellular manufacturing assembly market. The feature was recently published in IoT Journal.
Identifying the characteristics most needed for an effective picking solution may seem obvious. High visibility, robust order pick displays and flexible mounting methods allow a system to easily adapt (increase or decrease) with warehousing operation requirements. Simple intuitive software must be part of the mix when selecting best-practice picking solutions.
The real test of the claims about pick-to-light were validated when looking at the technology in a service model. When the devices are Web-connected, providing real-time accurate picking data, immediate corrective actions can be made on the plant floor.
Having these devices leverages data with authentic IIoT technology. The old model of only allowing a picker to know if he or she picked the correct product at the workstation is not a system-wide real-time visibility that benefits the entire operation.
IoT Journal is an independent website devoted solely to covering Internet of Things technologies and their many business applications.
