Picking According to the Person-to-Goods Principle

The Person-to-Goods system is usually considered to be a lower-investment type of picking process. In this situation, the picker moves towards the material to be picked. High picking performance can be achieved by optimizing long distances.

Order pickers are guided through the warehouse using various picking methods such as pick-to-light, pick-by-voice, or the traditional picking list either in analog or digital form.

Characteristics for Person-to-Goods Picking

  • High variance of products
  • Limited number of identical items
  • High article turnover
  • Picking directly from pallets
  • Articles with special dimensions
