The simple Pick by Scan Method using a scanner or handheld to process picking orders is very common. The order information is shown on the display. Via the built-in scanner the picking is acknowledged and sent to the LUCA-Server sent. There are various hardware products 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.
The scanners or handhelds with built-in displays are usually very large and not ergonomic. Even today the old "Motorola bones" are still in use in many warehouses. Today, in modern picking systems we mainly use the other smart solutions, such as Pick-by-Watch, Pick-by-Voiceetc. The old pick-by-scan systems can be brought up to date through retrofit projects.
