MODEX 2014 has dozens of Pick to Light solutions on display this week in Atlanta. More is not better. Pcdata USA’s PickStar features all basic critical Pick to Light functionality like barcode scanning of orders, multi zone picking, back side picking, and correction buttons. Antonio Rodrigues, a senior manager at Pcdata USA, noted, “PickStar differentiates from other Pick to Light systems because it is available as a standard out of the box solution. With PickStar you can install, setup, configure, and deploy a fully operational pick to light system within two days, because of its clever and flexible hardware design and its clever software design.” Assembly line processes are complex, particularly in food logistics, e-commerce business-to-consumer organizations, spare parts assemblies, and a wide variety of consumer goods distribution centers.
The PickStar solution is designed with installation model with minimal operational impact; bottom-line ease of use and operational simplicity will provide a rapid ROI. Most of the 550 systems installed worldwide in 30 countries (100 in North America) required nothing more than basic user involvement due to the intuitive GUI (graphical user interface). By observing employees at full capability in days, rather than months, and without the need for IT engineering staff, cost savings become clear.
Pcdata USA, a global logistics systems leader for supply chain automation, has more than six hundred systems successfully installed in more than thirty countries worldwide, and offers affordable customized and out-of-the-box solutions.
Pcdata USA will sponsor Manufacturing Revival Radio interviews during MODEX at Booth #4834 on Tuesday, March 18, 2014. The hosts of Manufacturing Revival Radio, Todd Schnick and Todd Youngblood will interview CEOs, CFOs, Operations Managers, and Quality Assurance Managers about their experiences in picking fast-moving consumer goods products.
There will be several conversations about how pick to light can be used on a stand-alone basis as an order fulfillment software solution versus integrated directly into the warehouse management system. Since pick to light is an easy process to learn—training a picking operator can take just 30 a minutes—which means a rapid ROI. The idea of pick to light installation versus complicated implementations will also be discussed during the interviews at MODEX.
Pcdata USA (www.pcdatausa.com) based in East Granby, Connecticut, provides a different type of Pick to Light because unlike expensive picking solutions that require lengthy implementations, PickStar, is a quick one-day installations.
