What are Pick Modules?
A pick module system or warehouse pick module is a multi-level, engineered system comprising various storage mediums designed to move SKUs throughout a fulfillment operation. These systems utilize several space-saving solutions to store SKUs according to throughput.
By examining the total SKUs within your warehouse and analyzing slow-movers, medium-movers, and fast-movers, you are able to determine the perfect combination of storage mediums to assign each SKU to its optimal position (or slot).
In a high-performing order picking operation, pick module systems use various static shelving, tilted pick shelving, high-density storage, carton flow, pallet flow, and conveyors. Implementing these solutions creates maximum order picking efficiency and increases SKU density.
Pick Module System Benefits
Pick module systems are strategically designed to improve overall performance within an order fulfillment operation. A highly effective pick module aims to optimize the cubic space within a warehouse to minimize the amount of time order pickers spend searching for and picking SKUs to fulfill orders.
The ultimate goal of any fulfillment operation is to increase speed while driving down costs, and a thoughtfully designed warehouse pick module is a significant part of achieving that goal.
The use of a warehouse pick module is beneficial to operations across several different industries including:
