Supply Chain Graphic of the Week - Multi-Modal Order Picking


Combination of Voice and RFID Could Provide Big Gains in Case Picking


By SCDigest Editorial Staff


One of the more exciting recent developments in Distribution thinking is the concept of "Multi-Modal" order picking - the use of several technologies (traditional RF/bar code, voice, RFID, etc.) in a single picking area/application.

The graphic below illustrates one such possibility for case picking in a distribution center. It was taken from our current "Supply Chain Digest Letter on Advanced Order Picking Systems." An electronic copy of that Letter, along with a wealth of other information, is available at our Order Picking Systems Resources page.
