Order picking with the help of RFID

When picking with the help of RFID solutions, the component to be picked is identified at the workstation using RFID tracking. This can be done automatically with an RFID reader or manually with a scanner ( RFID handheld devices, barcode, data matrix or similar ). Alternatively, picking orders can also be selected manually.

All relevant information such as product and parts lists etc. are retrieved and displayed via a terminal at the picking workstation. It is possible to retrieve information and data from third-party business applications ( e.g. from an ERP system ). After completion the work step is confirmed by the employee.

Order picking with RFID can be combined with a Pick-by-Light system.
