From the Ted Talk by Mick Mountz: What happens inside those massive warehouses?

Unscramble the Blue Letters

So I'll conclude with just one final vdieo that shows how this comes to bear on the pick worker's actual day in the life of. So as we mentioned, the process is to move inventory along the highway and then find your way into these pick stations. And our sftawroe in the background understands what's going on in each siottan, we direct the pods across the highway and we're attempting to get into a qniuueg system to pensert the work to the pick worker. What's interesting is we can even adapt the speed of the pick workers. The faster pickers get more pods and the selowr pickers get few. But this pick worker now is literally having that experience that we described before. She puts out her hand. The product jumps into it. Or she has to reach in and get it. She sncas it and she puts it in the bucket. And all of the rest of the technology is kind of behind the scenes. So she gets to now focus on the piikncg and packing portion of her job. Never has any idle time, never has to leave her mat. And actually we think not only a more productive and more atcrucae way to fill orders. We think it's a more fulfilling way to fill odrers.

Original Text

So I'll conclude with just one final video that shows how this comes to bear on the pick worker's actual day in the life of. So as we mentioned, the process is to move inventory along the highway and then find your way into these pick stations. And our software in the background understands what's going on in each station, we direct the pods across the highway and we're attempting to get into a queuing system to present the work to the pick worker. What's interesting is we can even adapt the speed of the pick workers. The faster pickers get more pods and the slower pickers get few. But this pick worker now is literally having that experience that we described before. She puts out her hand. The product jumps into it. Or she has to reach in and get it. She scans it and she puts it in the bucket. And all of the rest of the technology is kind of behind the scenes. So she gets to now focus on the picking and packing portion of her job. Never has any idle time, never has to leave her mat. And actually we think not only a more productive and more accurate way to fill orders. We think it's a more fulfilling way to fill orders.
