Carsten Funke of Picavi, the leader in Pick-by-Vision technology, was recently interviewed by manufacturing journalist, TR Cutler for AutomationMedia magazine. Funke and Cutler discussed sparkling wine producer, Schloss Wachenheim’s customized Picavi installation; the company reduced the error rate in order picking and optimized productivity and workplace safety.

According to Funke, “A high level of order picking is required, especially during heavy promotional sales, on days such as Black Friday and in the run-up to Christmas. In day-to-day business, the weekly deliveries to the 35 stores, each with up to 80 items and around 5,000 bottles, are also prepared from Trier. This is a huge task for the order pickers in the warehouse, for which those responsible at Schloss Wachenheim wanted to provide them with digital support.”
“In practice, 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,” added Funke.
AutomationMedia is the industry’s leading and popular technology website and useful resources for industrial technology enthusiasts.
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.
