What is Pick To Light?
Pick to light, also known as DPS (Digital Picking System), is a system that combines computers and alphanumeric display (usually, LED lights) modules to support picking processes in warehouses
Warehouse employees just need to move to where the shelves are lit/display flashing lights and collect the correct quantity shown. This simplifies the process and makes it easy for any employee, newly hired or long-tenured, to perform warehouse picking tasks quickly, easily and efficiently.
Pick To Light can also be integrated with Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), Enterprise Resource Planning Systems (ERP), Supply Chain Management Systems, or other host systems to improve inventory management.
How does Pick To Light work?
Staff scans the barcode of picking lists extracted from the Warehouse Management System
The system will display a light signal (flashing LED) at the necessary pickup locations for the order, creating a path to guide staff to perform the task
Staff takes out the goods according to the quantity shown, then presses the button to confirm
Staff continues to move to the locations where the lights are on (or flashing) to get the items as required and put them in the corresponding container. Continue until done
