Increase Productivity for Your Maintenance, Operations, and Repair Environment


  • Organizations often over complicate the picking process with special rules and multiple steps that leave room for error. While getting the right part to the right place at the right time can be a challenge it’s important to remember to keep your process as simple and streamlined, leaving less room for mistakes. Review your picking and replenishment processes and ask yourself why you do things the way you do. You may find there are steps in processes that were implemented some time ago and no longer have merit.

    Utilize The Golden Zone

    Bending down or reaching overhead to retrieve an SKU can dramatically affecting picking productivity. When a worker is picking multiple SKUs to fill orders over 8 hours it’s imperative to consider worker ergonomics. The majority of picks should be located in the Golden Zone. The Golden Zone is defined as the area between a workers knees and shoulders- the ideal zone from which to pick. This minimizes the worker’s reaching and bending thus improving pick times and eliminating worker fatigue.

    Working on the goods to person principle, automated storage technologies provide high density, high throughput and Golden Zone ergonomics that increase worker productivity. Light directed Pick-to-Light technology can be integrated in the AS/RS to direct the picker to the exact location of the pick; eliminating the time spent searching for the exact SKU once at the location and increasing productivity even further.
