Really like the post. It was a good read. Having come from a warehouse shipping business, I understand about getting the red ducks in with the green ones.
One thing we used to do to make sure this didn't happen is when items got to the "sorting table", while they were being put into the shipping box, we would scan the bar code on the item to make sure it matched what was on the pick ticket.
You've seemingly done a thorough job with your pick system. ;)
The best picking system that I've ever seen, which is truly automated, is UPS's system they use to ship out their replacement delivery vehicle parts. That's truly awesome.
