"Système de préparation à commande "pick-to-light" , "préparation de commande sans papier", etc.
Explanation:
"Préparation de commande guidé par voyants lumineux"
or simply "Système "pick-to-light""

Also:
"préparation de commande électronique" (= sans papier)


The two expressions relate to the same thing. It is the process of picking items to fill in an order with the help of machines rather than a paper in your hand. Pick-to-light is only one way to do it.

You will find an explanation of what Pick-to-light is all about on the sites below. They also explain how the light are placed, etc.

"When implementing paperless picking in a warehouse, at least one of the following three technologies is used to direct the picker and record the results: Radio Frequency (RF) terminals, Pick-to-Light (PTL) and Voice-Assisted picking. When using pick-to-light technology, a lighted display at each picking location illuminates to show the associate the item and quantity to pick for an order. PTL is often used on flow rack because this storage medium houses the fastest moving items, therefore the cost of the pick lights and the computer system is offset by the increased picking rates and better accuracy. It is frequently used to direct picking from horizontal carousels, and the pick lights can even be put on carts to aid batch picking."

"GBI's Paperless Pick System
(Pick-to-Light)

" What Is Pick-to-Light?

Pick-to-Light is an economical automated solution to manual picking. It removes the thinking aspect at the pick level by using a scanner or other input to identify an order and lights and numbers to identify product location and pick quantity. The Paperless Pick System is designed to electronically assist sorting personnel in locating the pick location for each line item on the order for any given zone. The system may be used for picking product or placing roduct depending on the application."

Here is the way the expression is used in French:

"Préparation des commandes sans erreur grâce aux distributeurs rotatifs "Pick-to-light" ".

"Analyse et élaboration de potentiels d'optimisation pour un systeme de préparation à commande "pick-to-light" d'un service logistique d'articles pharmaceutiques et èquipements médicales."
http://www.gnolte.de/text_f/projekt_t_f.html

" If you assemble orders more accurately and more productively than others, you achieve a competitive advantage. The way to
accomplish that today is with an order fulfillment system based on paperless picking technology."
http://www.rapistan.com/marketing/products/order_fulfillment...

"When combined with picking technologies such as RF terminals or pick-to-light modules, paperless picking results in better
order accuracy and relieves the inventory as the item is picked. Using this feedback, you can add a replenishment module to
ensure that the picking location is restocked before it becomes empty. "
