Picking time: a factor for picking efficiency
Time is money, and this is especially true in logistics and in the handling of goods and merchandise. One aspect of picking that can be considered separately is the picking time. It is defined as the time for grabbing the item, i.e. removing and placing the item into the picking bin. Alternative terms for the gripping time include pick time or removal time.
Important: Depending on the type of rack, the nature of the goods and factors such as the storage space height, etc., the gripping time can differ significantly. Electronic goods, for example, require special protective measures, and the same applies to the food industry. Nevertheless, there are empirical values or time ranges that allow a statement to be made as to whether a gripping time is now "OK", "too long" or "too short".
