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.
The 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 server and processed. The connection of the hardware to the LUCA system is realised via stable and standardised interfaces. The communication between the LUCA-Server and the superordinate WMS and HOST systems, is adapted customer-specifically 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, we mainlyuse other smart solutions in modern order picking systems, such as Pick-by-Watch, Voice Picking, etc. The old Pick-by-Scan systems can be brought up to date through retrofit projects.
