Forbes Contributor Carsten Funke of Picavi Talks Empowering Innovation Teams

Carsten Funke, CEO at Picavi USA, the leader in pick-by-vision technology, is a frequent contributor to Forbes. In his most recent article, Funke discussed the fact that innovation teams are rarely decision makers. “They are, at best, decision-influencers and more often than nothing more than folks that make innovation suggestions. Too often they have no authority, buying power, and waste vendors’ time initiating proof-of-concept projects which are rarely converted to enterprise-wide implementations.”

“Where innovation leaders are not empowered, it may be the case that individual plant and warehouse managers are given too much authority to operate their own facility without taking advantage of the knowledge, wisdom, data, and technologies used by others. It’s a tribal attitude, quite territorial, and yet the reward culture supports this autonomy over innovation,” added Funke. 

Funke is a proud member of the Forbes Business Council, an invitation-only organization for successful business leaders and executives who are selected for the council based on the depth and diversity of experience in the business development space.

Current vs. Future State of Warehouse Picking

Whether warehouse or distribution center, the current state of picking remains problematic. These challenges grow more serious as picking migrates to e-retail fulfillment. The metrics and justification of Google Glasses, as a picking methodology, must include a constant, iterative, and continuous process improvement system. This requirement defines the future state of warehouse picking; only Picavi is ready to meet the future state today. 

About Picavi USA

Picavi USA Pick-by-Vision solution makes it possible to visually manage the picking process for goods in intralogistics in a consistent manner. Picavi’s Cockpit uses artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and digital twin technology as a breakthrough innovation, maximizing productivity at warehouses and minimizing error rates. Only with this Smart Data technology are e-fulfillment solutions possible, transcending the initial value proposition of Google Glasses.

When wearing the smart glasses, warehouse workers have both hands free for primary tasks, including picking and packing goods. Augmented reality (AR) with context-based information makes work much more precise, predictable, and fun. Google Glasses have become an indispensable part of warehouse life.
