KardexRemstar (Westbrook, ME) recommends parallel picking to help improve efficiency and accuracy in material handling applications. Using the parallel picking method, the warehouse is divided into multiple picking zones. When orders are requested, stock keeping units (SKUs) are picked from each zone simultaneously, in parallel, and transported to order consolidation. Using this approach, automated storage and retrieval systems can be used in conjunction with non-automated systems to provide optimum order picking operations and create higher productivity.
