MANUFACTURING TIDBITS

MANUFACTURING OUTLOOK: Eliminating costly mispicks There is not a warehouse manager unaware of the costs of mispicks. Researchers discovered that a single mispick costs an average of $22. While that may not seem all that expensive, costs quickly add up to $390,000 annually for the typical business. Perfect picks generate significantly reduced error rates, and Picavi considers smart glasses a personal assistant for fast, simple, and error-free picking. Assisted Reality, expanding reality with contextdependent digital information, is becoming increasingly common in the logistics sector. The system keeps both hands free and provides enough battery life for at least one full shift. By guiding users visually, it offers greater flexibility and prevents fatigue. Other savings are realized in pick-by-vision as these technologies are easy to learn. Since human beings process 80% of information visually, pick-by-vision is one of the most significant developments in intralogistics.

Pick-by-vision has arrived and will be on display at MODEX 2020 in Atlanta, March 9 - 12 Booth 5485 Productivity and ROI pick-by-vision data Customers who use smart glasses report efficiency increases up to 30%, depending on the starting situation. Improved performance means a pickby-vision system quickly pays for itself. Hands-free picking is achieved by using smart glasses to enable continuous material flow and uninterrupted shift operations in the warehouse.

Manufacturing Outlook / February 2020

Pick-by-vision = 100% employee acceptance Frequently, new technologies meet with resistance; not the case with pick-by-vision glasses which captures 100% acceptance among employees. The use of icons and images minimizes the amount of text on screen, as well as solving language barriers, since icons and images are universally understood. This solution also prevents fatigue and provides a greater degree of flexibility. At the start of their shift, the warehouse worker logs into the system by scanning their personal barcode. Picavi then transfers the first order to the smart glasses. The smart glasses’ user-friendly interface gives the picker an overview of all the important information in real-time, and also keeps their hands free to pick up the goods.
