Order fulfillment systems have progressed in the last decades; what has always been sought is to depend less on the human factor to make it more precise, more productive and more visible. The first process line systems were widely used and still are, except that there is more and more migration to light-guided systems; which means eliminate the classic assortment list.
The Pick to Light (PTL) or light-guided order selection system allows orders to go from a server to the assortment line; where, by means of illuminated displays, the quantity of an item to be filled is indicated in each position. The operator supplies the quantity indicated on it and confirms by means of a button.
The system records in real time and makes the corresponding updates in the inventory, indicating what must be restocked. The order travels to the different stations until it is completed.
Productivity in a Pick to Light or PTL is substantially higher than in a manual system. In addition, it reduces errors, adapts to staff turnover, avoids assortment lists and allows you to manage all information with its inherent advantages.
The Pick to Light is a system for a medium-high products flow and is normally used in the assortment of items. All those companies that handle loose units with medium and high volumes or a large number of SKU’s, can greatly benefit from this technology; These could include; for example, fulfillment of orders in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food supplements, textile products or consumer products industries, among others.
