Picking activities are only effective if the correct parts or inventory are put in the right place and ready to be picked. Because of this, an efficient stocking and replenishment solution is a necessity in many industries.
Warehouses and distribution facilities require an efficient method for putting inventory on the shelves so that orders will be easily accessible during fulfillment. In manufacturing facilities, assembly and kitting stations must be replenished with parts before they run out.
Put-to-light solutions improve the efficiency and accuracy of stocking and replenishment activities and can help prevent downtime by reducing delays due to misplaced or incorrect parts.
Stocking and replenishment are critical because misplaced items, incorrect parts, and delays in restocking shelves or workstations can significantly impact productivity downstream.
Proper stocking and replenishment is also essential for error-proofing and quality control. For example, if assembly stations are stocked with incorrect parts, the quality of the assembly may be compromised, and assemblers may not be able to meet production goals. In material handling, misplaced inventory can lead to order delays or mix-ups.
Light-guided putting solutions reduce the risk of errors and help ensure that work areas are properly stocked at all times.
