The simple Pick-by-Scan method of 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 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 realised via WiFi. In the case of fixed workplaces, 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 realised via stable and standardised interfaces. Communication between the LUCA-Server and the higher-level WMS and HOST systems is customised 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 modern order-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 through retrofit projects.
