Parallel picking system
High throughput with parallel operation
Our semi-automatic Parallel Picking System (PPS) is an order picking system and is ideal both for fast turnover products that cannot be automated, and for medium-turnover and slow-moving products: Your employees in order picking receive all the necessary information via Radio Frequency Terminals to place the required articles from the article containers into the filling module. The filling shaft into which the orders are to be picked is displayed via Pick-by-Light pickfaces.
As a system provider, specialist and market leader in intralogistics, SSI SCHAEFER also delivers everything from one source for this system, from the containers to the technology through to the management software. Our many years of experience ensure rapid implementation and the seamless interaction of all components.
As multiple operators can order pick various orders at one filling module simultaneously, PPS allows you to achieve a considerably higher level of efficiency.
Cost-effective solution and rapid order processing
PPS allows you to profit from the following benefits:
- Best possible order throughput time thanks to parallel processing
- Efficient order processing via program-controlled order optimisation
- High workstation quality in the order picking zone thanks to the ergonomic design
- Short training times and high order picking quality thanks to intelligent user guidance
- Short amortisation time
With PPS, the orders are managed, controlled and checked in the warehouse control system and can then be started in an optimised way by the warehouse control computer. The various orders are then transferred to the individual sectors in parallel and processed. The considerable increase in performance is in part achieved via the efficient order compilation (batch formation).
