How much throughput can I get with an automated system?

It really depends on the type of system, the amount of storage locations, and other factors. Compared to manual picking, automating a process with a combined with a Goods-to-Person workstation, pick rate improvements are typically up to 1,000 picks per hour while reducing headcount. These of course vary with temperature controlled environments and the savings are much greater. This increases fulfillment accuracy and improves overall quality of supply chain inventory too.
