The High Performance Picking System (HPPS) is a combination of mechanics and software that can be integrated into virtually any system design. Customer orders are then able to be picked quickly, efficiently and ergonomically. This is accomplished through the intelligent guidance of the picker and the combined use of efficient warehouse management software and a pick-to-light system.
Viastore Systems, an automated material handling and supply chain execution software solutions provider, has developed a new automated storage retrieval system (AS/RS) for high-speed picking. It claims to provide up to 40% more efficiency and up to 70% less floor space compared to manual systems.
