Pick by Scan

The simple Pick by Scan Method with a scanner or handheld to process the picking orders is very common. The order information is shown on the display. The removal is acknowledged via the built-in scanner and sent to the LUCA-Server is sent. Various hardware products are available on the market.


The communication between the scanners and the LUCA-Server is mostly realized via WiFi. In the case of fixed workplaces, cheaper, wired solutions are also used. The scanned data is sent to the central LUCA-Server sent and processed. The connection of the hardware to the LUCA system is realized via stable and standardized interfaces. The communication between the LUCA-Server and the higher-level WMS and HOST systems, can be adapted to customer-specific requirements if required.

Poor ergonomics

The scanners or handhelds with built-in displays are usually very large and not ergonomic. Still today the old "Motorola bones" are in use in many warehouses. Today, we mainly use the other smart solutions such as Pick-by-Watch, Pick-by-Voice, etc. in modern order picking systems. The old Pick-by-Scan systems can be updated by retrofit projects.
