Goods-to-Person Solutions

Goods-to-person solutions are an alternative to traditional methods of picking. SKU proliferation, demanding SLAs, increasing volumes, shrinking labor pool, and a host of other impacts are driving this process as a preferred method of picking orders. Goods-to-person is solving operational challenges with minimal labor.

 

Goods-to-person solutions incorporate technology to eliminate travel time to inventory locations.

 


  • Cases or Totes are individually stored on shelving units or a full height rack solution. AMR solutions in this group either utilize one robot to pre-sort and another to transport the case/tote to a picker, or the AMR climbs the rack and brings the case/tote to a picker. Shelves with products in cases, totes, trays, etc. are moved into position for picking from with an operator. AMR solutions in this group either utilize one robot to lift and then transport the shelf to the picker.

    Benefits

    • Ensure solution capacity and productivity performance
    • Scalability without interrupting production
    • Flexibility of adapting to multiple order profiles
    • Robots are always available with no single point of failure
    • Impressive energy savings over traditional automation with embedded energy recovery
    • Incomparable reactivity when late priority orders are added to the system

  • Shelves with product in cases, totes, trays, etc. are moved into position for picking from with an operator. AMR solutions in this group either utilize one robot to lift and then transport the shelf to the picker.

    Benefits

    • Higher throughput/less pickers compared to pick assisted
    • Allows for dynamic or random slotting
    • Multiple order profiles can be represented on a shelf
    • Presentation of multiple SKU faces at one time will help throughput
    • Pick station designs allow for max throughput
