The Besam division was incorporated into the ASSA ABLOY group in 2002; they are focused on pedestrian entrance systems for the commercial market worldwide.
To tackle this issue, the project team at ASSA ABLOY looked closely at several potential options such as voice or RF Scanning but finally chose the pick-to-light technology of Pcdata. Radek Poskocil, Head of Production Quality & Engineering at ASSA ABLOY noted that “In our case pick-to-light is much more flexible than a scanning solution. With pick-to-light we can very quickly and easily adjust the order assembly area if required when we add new components. We do not need to worry about getting our suppliers to barcode label or RF tag every product. We also have a large number of SKU’s which are very difficult to tag or barcode due to their size. We now have one solution that suits the whole assortment of products and future flexibility is guaranteed.
ASSA ABLOY turned to Pcdata and implemented the PickStar pick-to-light system to reduce errors and drive down costs. The installation success resulted in a payback in less than nine months.
