VISION PICKING REINVENTS WAREHOUSE TRAINING BY TAKING IT OUT OF THE CLASSROOM AND EMBEDDING IT INTO THE WORK ITSELF
How to Train Warehouse temps faster with Vision Picking
A blog by AREA member Logistiview on training staff faster with vision picking.
Mention the word “training” in a warehouse and most people think of classrooms, handouts, long ramp up time and the inevitable re-training. This long resource-intensive process stands between every new hire and the productivity you’re paying them for. And at peak when it feels like the season is ending just as people finally master all they need to know, training can’t move fast enough.
The good news for DC’s is that training has profoundly changed. In fact, the entire concept of how training takes place is being transformed with Vision Picking via smart glasses.
Vision Picking provides access to intuitive, constantly-available instruction via the display in the smart gasses, or in some cases on RF terminals or other mobile screens. The result is training turned from a classroom event into an always-on part of the job. It’s a breakthrough capability for DC workforce development, where training is ingrained into every step of how work gets done.
Let’s explore the specifics of how Vision Picking impacts on-boarding and development within a DC, looking at how it makes training:
- Fast and obvious
- Constant and “always-on”
- Easy for complex tasks
- Simple for process changes, and
- Affordable operation-wide
Vision Picking simplifies training by turning complex instructions into easy-to-understand visuals. For on-boarding a new picker, this converts intricate steps, routes, and actions into obvious choices understood a glance.
