The simple Pick-by-Scan method of using a scanner or handheld to process picking orders is very common. The display shows the order information. Via the built-in scanner the pick is acknowledged and sent to the LUCA-Server sent. There are various hardware products available on the market.
Communication between the scanners and the LUCA-Server is mostly realized via WiFi. For fixed workstations, cheaper wired solutions are also used. The scanned data is sent to the central LUCA-Server and processed. The connection of the hardware to the LUCA system is realized via stable and standardized interfaces. Communication between the LUCA-Server and the higher-level WMS and HOST systems is customized as 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 the modern picking systems, we mainly use the other smart solutions, such as. Pick-by-Watch, Voice Picking, etc. The old Pick-by-Scan systems can be brought up to date by retrofit projects.
