Parallel Picking Systems (PPS)

The economical solution for rapid order processing

Rapid order processing for products with a high ordering frequency and different characteristics creates complex challenges for an optimum warehouse material flow. SSI SCHAEFER’s Parallel Picking System (PPS) carries out these tasks rapidly, easily, and efficiently.

The Parallel Picking System is a picking system for parallel, manual, person-to-goods order processing. The same articles are picked for multiple orders and distributed among the individual orders at the filling module. This system supports and optimizes your picking processes, increases productivity, and guarantees short cycle times.

High flexibility, the best possible ergonomics, and high economy ensure the ideal procedures in your warehouse. By integrating proven technology, the Parallel Picking System is the optimum enhancement for the comprehensive picking systems from
SSI SCHAEFER. It is especially suitable for:

  • High-turnover products that cannot be picked using automated systems due to their shape and packaging requirements

  • Moderate and low-turnover products with geometries that enable automated picking, yet are not required frequently enough for a channel system to be feasible 


Your picking operators receive all necessary information via radio-frequency terminals (RF terminal) to locate the desired articles in the article containers and transfer them to the filling module. The RF terminal is worn on the arm and connected to the ring scanner. The order data is read directly from the display and confirmed on the RF terminal. The information is transferred wirelessly to the line computer via the access point. In addition to radio-frequency terminals, Pick by Voice or Pick by Light systems can also be utilized to support the picking process.

Perfectly harmonized components

HIGH THROUGHPUT AND MORE EFFICIENCY

Throughput with 600 lines per hour and greater efficiency than conventional picking systems with only one operator.

Multiple users can simultaneously pick articles for multiple orders using one filling module. As a consequence, with the Parallel Picking System from SSI SCHAEFER you benefit from a higher throughput (600 lines per hour) and greater efficiency than conventional picking systems with only one operator. The smart user guidance guarantees high picking quality and a low error rate.

With the PPS, the orders are managed, controlled, and checked with our WAMAS® logistics software and then optimized by the warehouse control computer. The various orders are then transferred to and processed in the individual sectors. The efficient order consolidation (batch formation) is one key factor that contributes to the significant increase in performance.
