Pick-by-Vision Finally Arrives at MODEX 2020

CARSTEN FUNKE

MODEX 2020 in Atlanta, March 9 - 12 will finally eclipse the old conversations about pick-to-light or voice-picking. This is the year in which pick-by-vision arrives.

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 pick-by-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.  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 context-dependent 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 is the perfect combination of modern technology and natural movements.

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.

Guided by the smart glasses to the storage location, a selection of Bluetooth-Ringscanners scan all 1D and 2D barcodes. They are connected via Bluetooth to the glasses. The confirmed pick does not require anyone to handle a hand scanner or paper list. This leads to employee satisfaction, retention, and value since the company is providing effective, ergonomic, and efficient tools for success.

In order to ensure efficient order processing, Picavi works closely and consistently with ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) and WMS (Warehouse Management Systems) vendors. Deviations are optimized in real-time and only a smooth and accurate picking process remains.

In an Amazon world, nothing is more important than keeping customers happy and re-ordering. Warehouse operations have been using the Picavi pick-by-vision since 2015. Smart glasses provide clarity in the warehouse, critical since warehouse work involves a lot of movement. The smart glasses do not slip, tip to one side, or set heavily on the nose. Using them is clear, simple, and intuitive.

The Picavi Cockpit features make it easy to wirelessly install smart glasses, no matter how big the project. The simple One-Scan-Setup process brings smart glasses to life, incorporating them into warehouse operations. (The Picavi Cockpit will be on full display at MODEX 2020 booth number 5485.)



Screen casting provides a new and even easier way to train new employees. The display of the glasses can be shown on a monitor “over-the-air” immediately. The smart glasses receive updates and maintenance “over-the-air,” ensuring the latest software is always being used. The wireless connection also minimizes the costs for rollout and support.

Good communication is the basis for successful cooperation. Perfect integration allows for fast and reliable data transfer between the smart glasses and warehouse management. Booth 5485 at MODEX 2020 in Atlanta will allow attendees to see clearly why pick-by-vision is the most important logistics innovation of the decade.
