Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, recently discussed the next generation of Pick-to-Light systems in Automation-Review magazine. Pick-to-Light equipment has traditionally represented a significant fixed capital expense with little consideration for variable use, often driven by seasonality, warehouse/distribution variance, and project management flux. These swings in low or high usage represent a level of waste as sometimes over-purchased lights go unused and wasted.
The new system includes very economical Pick-to-Light devices which can also manage inventory in the warehouse. These devices are leased on a month-to-month basis, so small manufacturers can reduce capital outlay, paying for only the lights needed (returning those unneeded). The system is the first variable inventory control expense in the industrial market based solely on use and need. With the increasing demand for customizable manufacturing throughout the supply chain, a newer Pick-to-Light technology was needed that pioneers and advances the next generation of cost-effective picking solutions.
