Pick by Cart supports the Multi-Order-Pickingmethod excellently. On a picking trolley with the help of a paper slip, picking is not very efficient and error-prone. To support the picking, sequencing and distribution of the articles, displays, WiFi and rechargeable batteries are mounted directly on the picking trolley Pick by Lightand support the process.
The simultaneous picking of several orders on one picking trolley significantly accelerates the process. The route-optimised control system enables the completion of the complete order picking trolley in a single pass. Commissioning itself does not pose a problem in principle. The problem is the correct and fast distribution of the articles to several order trays. Here is a pick slip, pick by scan or even pick by voice overtaxed. Other picking systems are not optimal either. The Pick-by-Cart or Pick-by-Frame® is used to ensure efficient use.
Difference between Pick-by-Cart and Frame® ?
The two methods hardly differ from the process. The serious difference lies in the distribution of the work steps in the warehouse.
The Pick-by-Cart with permanently mounted Pick-by-Light displays is used when an employee always keeps his car at work and carries out the complete process himself, from preparation, picking and packing. In the case of Pick-by-Cart, the number of pickers and the number of picking carts in the warehouse are the same.
The Pick-by-Frame® is used when several employees are involved in preparation, picking and packing. The Pick-by-Frame® is only used for picking. The supporting technology with Pick-by-Light, Wifi and batteries is mounted on a separately moving frame and "docked" to a car. The trolley and the frame are registered and controlled to the order management system via scanner or RFID. The preparation and packing is carried out by other employees without a frame. The order picker always keeps his frame and the marked order picking cart is passed on. With Pick-by-Frame®, the same picking cart can also be processed by several employees in different aisles or floors. With Pick-by-Frame®, the number of frames and order pickers is the same. The number of frames to the picking trolleys should be > 1:2.
With Pick-by-Cart only docking on the picking trolley is not necessary. Otherwise, the process is the same with Pick-by-Frame®.
