RF picking is a RF-guided manual picking system, suitable for all types of products. Mobile radio frequency terminals guide operators through the picking process. One RF picking system can be used for any number of picking areas with an unlimited number of locations in each area. During picking, location or product barcodes are scanned as confirmation. This ensures a high accuracy of picking results. Another feature of RF picking is its flexibility in configuring areas prior to picking. Areas can be made as large as necessary to accommodate the number of locations required. This reduces walking time, thus increasing overall productivity.
