Pick list, MDE, Voice & Co.: Test center takes over evaluation of technologies for order picking
Realistic picking setting
The Picking Lab consists of a shelf rack with three walk-in rack aisles filled with a wide range of articles. Due to the structure and the different characteristics of, for example, hanging goods, bulk goods or heavy goods, processes, challenges and potentials of typical intralogistic areas such as e-commerce, small parts picking or load handling are addressed in our manual miniature warehouse.
In terms of applied research, software and hardware solutions for order picking can be investigated in a realistic, standardized person-to-goods picking setting.
