Based on combining orders into a batch, batches of orders are filled according to a colored light directed picking process. When the operator starts the batch, the system dynamically assigns a color to the batch cart as it’s introduced into the color picking zone. All storage devices, such as a Shuttle XP Vertical Lift Modules or Megamat RS vertical carousels, with order lines for this color batch display the matching color on the display screen and move to retrieve the stored articles required for the batch. Following the colored lights on the storage devices, the operators simply pick the articles from the storage device and put them into the batch cart with the matching color.
