Pick to Light
In pick to light, each SKU has its own or in some cases shared module location. This means that when the order is moved into the picker’s zone, each SKU needed for that order will illuminate a pick to light module, the picker will then pick the items in that zone from those locations, extinguish the lights, and pass the order to the next zone.
In contrast, items for the orders in a Put to Light system are usually batch picked in the warehouse and brought to the Put to Light system. The picker will scan a SKU and all the locations that need that item will illuminate. The picker will “PUT” the item to each location and extinguish the light. As soon as the order has filled, the location will illuminate and display the word “done”. This order is now fulfilled and can be removed from the location and is ready for shipment.
