Common Order Picking Errors & How to Solve Them
 
Accurate picking is essential to a modern warehouse operation. Inefficiencies and mistakes can be a bottleneck to the distribution and fulfillment process. In turn, this can lead to delayed shipments, frustrated customers, and lost business.
 
Whether a small facility or a large-scale operation, warehouse pickers often encounter the same issues. Here are some of the most common order picking problems and their solutions.
 
Items in the wrong locations
 
One of the most common occurrences a picker can experience is when an item isn’t where it’s supposed to be. Time spent searching many bins for an item’s location saps productivity.
 
This leads to to a domino effect of wasted time that can touch the entire order process. Inventory control software tackles this problem through increased stock visibility. As a result, it’s easier to track inventory for an accurate record of putaway locations.
 
Items in multiple locations
 
Several items in an order may live in different locations in a warehouse. Thus, to fulfill the order, a picker must venture bin-to-bin, shelf-to-shelf.
 
Depending on how it’s arranged, pickers may need to travel from one end of the warehouse to another. This draws out the time it takes to complete a single order.
 
A Warehouse Management System (WMS) makes it possible to manage the layout and flow of a warehouse. Thus, allowing for better flexibility that accounts for items in multiple locations.
 
Not picking the correct item quantity
 
Was the picker meant to pull 18 boxes or 19? Gathering many items at once can be difficult to keep track of. This is especially true when they look the same or are in high quantities.
 
Barcoding software can require scanning of picked items before acceptance. As a result, a picker can verify item counts.
 
Building on basic barcoding software, task management software aids picking efficiency and accuracy. Not only does it ensure accurate counts, but also streamlines workflows for greater productivity. This process is also called task interleaving. 
 
Using paper-based methods of organization
 
Picking and tracking items using sheets of paper leaves serious room for error. Also, it’s an inefficient, outdated process in a modern warehouse or distribution center.
 
Software is a necessity for modern warehouses. A real-time, highly-productive warehousing solution can end hand keying data and paper-based processes. By eliminating errors, lost items and inefficiency, the right solution paves the way for perfect order picking.
 
A full WMS system is one option. But a WMS may have functionality your company doesn’t need. Also, it may force you to work within pre-set workflows that don’t mesh with your preferred methods.
 
A better solution may be a stand-alone software that integrates to your ERP or back-end system. Warehouse Task Management tools, Inventory Control and/or Barcoding could be the solution for accurate picking.
