Goods to Person Order Fulfillment

Introduction

For as long as there has been picking, sending a person out to get the goods has been the way to go. 

The concept is simple: Put the product away in storage or a pick face. Then when it’s time to fill an order, send a picker to that location to get the goods. Let’s call that person to goods picking. 

But person to goods picking isn’t the only way to go, especially as the number of SKUs grow to meet consumer demand. The problem is that as a rule, travel distances and picking times increase as the number of SKUs proliferate. 

There is a solution. With the right order and volume profile, facilities can realize significant productivity gains by turning the person to goods picking formula on its head and employing automated storage, conveyance and data collection technologies to bring the goods to the picker.
