Management of the contents of the warehouse and order preparation with a pick-to-light system
Warehouse management system (WMS) with a pick-to-light system
The warehouse of this company in the pharmaceutical sector is now managed via the use of a warehouse management system (WMS) that keeps a record of the products contained in it, their quantity and their location. At the same time a pick-to-light system was implemented to optimise order preparation tasks. This involved the installation of light displays at each of the different locations, such that, via a system of lights, the position where the material to be included in the order in progress and the quantity are indicated. Once the action is completed, the operator confirms it so the system can indicate the position of the next product to be included in the order until the process is finished. Thanks to these systems, full traceability is maintained for the product contained in the warehouse and the optimal preparation of orders is favoured with greater efficiency while the number of errors is reduced.
