Picavi USA Pick-by-Vision was recently profiled for the merits of smart glasses. Driving efficient manufacturing as a safe return to work strategy, the article appeared in Efficient Manufacturing magazine and industrial journalist TR Cutler interviewed the CEO of Picavi USA. The article can be read here.
According to Carsten Funke, CEO of Picavi USA, “The benefit of our Pick-by-Vision system is that each worker has their own set, at least for the shift, and no one touches it, compared to the Lights – that get a lot of different hands. The glasses are the easiest device to disinfect since you can use a 0.5% detergent-water solution, such as natural detergent or mild dishwashing soap, or 70-80% isopropyl alcohol to a clean; using a soft damp cloth and wiping down all surfaces is most effective.”
Smart glasses result in a much faster and more reliable material flow. Unlike pick-to-light and voice picking, Pick-by-Vision forms a perfect symbiosis of modern technology and natural motion. Smart glasses and complementary products are tailor-made for the demands of man and machine. At a time of COVID-19, mandate social distancing and new return-to-work strategies are essential, these technologies form an efficient and flawless material flow. Workers appreciate returning to a safe work environment and their employers who have considered safety.
Funke shared that efficient manufacturing must take analytics which convert Big Data into Smart Data. Sensors on the Pick-by-Vision data glasses collect process parameters that can be evaluated in real-time using the Picavi Cockpit. These analytics makes it possible to define customer-specific KPIs such as picks per hour, picks per location, or an ABC analysis and monitor them in dashboards.
