Improve picking performance with lighted indicators

Put-to-light is a system designed to improve productivity, enabling operators to increase the number of order lines that can be processed at one time. The put-to-light system allows you to define as many picking zones and you like, with orders processed in parallel.

For each zone, the Modula WMS assigns a specifc order. Each system has one or more 10-foot (3-meter) bars that can be connected to cover the entire length of the operation. The bars sustain and power the lights of the system, which tell the operator where and how much to pick and put. Every zone has a corresponding display, and each display has three colors (amber, green and red) corresponding to a different machine.

The operator can thus pick from one machine and place the item where the matching color is illuminated. The display will indicate the number of pieces that need be put away. Once done, the operator pushes a button to signal the mission has been completed or to correct errors. The put-to-light system can operate either in batch or multiple-order fashion, depending on your operating procedures.
