Improve Picking Productivity

Improve Picking Productivity An effective way to reduce labor costs, extend facility capacity, and boost employee retention is to improve the order picking process. Other benefits accrue as well — service levels and worker morale can soar, you may become less dependent on temporary staff, and management can gain more effective tools and metrics. This feature article describes means and measures for improving picking operations, beginning with the tracking of productivity and accuracy.


Jason Jr. Engineering Team from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
Receives 2006 GlobalSpec Great Moments in Engineering Award

Shortages Stress Metal Recycling On Friday, July 14, the GlobalSpec Great Moments in Engineering Award was presented to the Jason Jr. engineering team (1986) in honor of the 20th anniversary of their first video survey of R.M.S. Titanic.

This small engineering team from the Deep Submergence Laboratory of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution — whose behind-the-scenes technical accomplishments resulted in the design and prototyping of a tethered robotic "video vehicle" 12,000+ feet deep in the North Atlantic — helped open doors to undersea discovery, commerce, innovation, and a new understanding of the ocean's ecosystem through remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).

Jason Jr. Principal Engineer Christopher J. von Alt accepted the award on the team's behalf at a ceremony held at the New England Aquarium in Boston. James Luyten, executive vice president and director of research at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, was on hand to recognize the team for their remarkable accomplishment. Read the full story.

Auto Parts Supplier Helped by Modular Conveyors

Auto Parts Supplier Helped by Modular Conveyors A case history describes the updating of a 1980s conveyor system, part of a manifold production line that featured a fixed steel design. The system was reliable, but did not provide adequate flexibility. When product designs changed, the molding cells needed to be reconfigured, which sometimes required the purchase of new conveyors. In the new system, the steel conveyors have been replaced with a modular plastic conveyor system that enables easy reconfiguring as product designs change.

Fast Sorting Helps Clothing Maker Keep Pace


Fast Sorting Helps Clothing Maker Keep Pace A dual split-tray sortation system installed for a major apparel manufacturer offers a 14,400 item per hour capacity to 372 separate destinations. An omni-directional scanner and a vision system control the operation, sending products to a double/double chamber consolidation chute. Induction areas, packing chutes, packing table, and supply shelf are all ergonomically designed for worker safety.

One Manufacturer's AS/RS Success Story

One Manufacturer's AS/RS Success Story An automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) that handles components, work-in-process (WIP), and finished goods, is at the center of a major upgrade of manufacturing and distribution operations for a kitchen cabinet hardware manufacturer. As described in Modern Materials Handling, the existing six-aisle AS/RS was running at 95% capacity under average conditions and would choke on peaks in production. The addition of three new aisles and more powerful warehouse management systems brought things under control.

Shipping Containers are Self-Palletizing

Shipping Containers are Self-Palletizing These shipping containers are reusable and self-palletized. Designed especially for use in a controlled loop environment, the pallets are lightweight, protect contents from damage, provide four-way entry, and are available in custom sizes. Units are constructed from polyethylene and can be set-up and broken-down by one person. Top and bottom pallets are interchangeable.

Data Capture . . .
Back to the TopBack to top
Bringing Your Data In from the Cold

Bringing Your Data In from the Cold A line of handheld computers is aimed at data collection tasks in the harshest environments. The devices are sealed against dust and moisture, will withstand dropping onto concrete from a height of 6.5 ft or 2 m, and will operate at temperatures as low as -22°F (-30° C). Standards-based components enable easy integration with other systems.

Bookstore Becomes Smarter with RFID

A bookstore chain based in The Netherlands uses a range of technologies at its newest outlet to drive the data collection process and improve the customer experience. RFID scanners throughout the store identify the book locations and send the information to a central database that is updated on a real-time basis. A customer information kiosk features a software package that accepts voice input and allows customers to search for books on specific subjects and books about a specific theme.

Next-Generation Lift Trucks Look to Fuel Cells

Next-Generation Lift Trucks Look to Fuel Cells Recorded at the NA 2006 Material Handling and Logistics Trade Show, this video Web cast describes how hydrogen fuel cells, with their reliability and ability to provide clean power, will boost the uptime and productivity of lift trucks. The video also features end users describing their experiences in using the new technology in some of the largest distribution centers in North America.

Improving the Dock-to-Truck Transition

Improving the Dock-to-Truck Transition A modular dock bridge covers the gap between the warehouse and the trailer. It is secured to the warehouse floor with four heavy-duty anchor bolts, requiring no concrete work. To operate the device, a worker steps on a release pedal and pushes the deck forward, slowly lowering the bridge into the trailer. A unique arc design and raised side housings provide structural integrity that enables the passage of three-wheel and four-wheel forklift traffic.

NIST Helps Gulf-Coast Manufacturers

NIST Helps Gulf-Coast Manufacturers The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) awarded grants to five organizations associated with NIST's Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP). The grants will help with the recovery efforts of manufacturers in the Gulf Coast regions hit by last year's hurricanes. The goals are to help manufacturers find workers and restore operations; to find additional resources to help with reconstruction and planning; and to install new technologies and automation.

Universal Wireless

WiFi systems are proliferating at a great rate, leading some pundits to offer visions of vast, interconnected networks. In one form, these visions are not dominated by big telecom-like entities with costly towers and receivers, but by a "people's network." This article describes one entrepreneur's goal of putting together a global network that links the efforts of independent users into a coherent whole.
