<h4><span style="font-weight: 400;">Handle an entire customer order on catch or fixed weight</span></h4> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;"> Each system is based on the requirements of the end user, as well as relevant data such as order information, contract information and production details. </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">There are two principles for order picking, which comprise all possible solutions:</span></p> <h4><span style="font-weight: 400;">Man-to-goods</span></h4> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">ABC product classification ensures a limited distance to goods </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Limited size of flow racks thanks to dynamic packing</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Ideal for goods with sensitive packaging </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Extensive control possibilities</span></li> </ul> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This option results in the picking of orders from an automated rack, in which the order picker goes along flow racks to pick customer orders. </span></p> <h4><span style="font-weight: 400;">Goods-to-man</span></h4> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">No physical limitation in the number of items</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Entire customer order can be handled at a single order picking station </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Warehouse load is restrained by simultaneous handling of multiple customers</span></li> </ul> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">In the goods-to-man option, orders are picked from an automated rack in which the material is supplied to the order picker, and the products are distributed to customer locations. Any excess material supplied will be returned to the warehouse. There are several options for the control and recording of the order processing, such as picking based on weight, distribution to the customer locations, and printing labels for the customer delivery box or crate.</span></p>
