19.2. Multi-Picking flow

19.2.1. Scan the picklist number

Scan the picklist number. A picklist can be scanned if the following verifies:

  • The status of the pick list is status ‘Not Ready’, ‘Partially Ready’, ‘Ready’ or ‘Partially Picked’
  • The ‘Use for Production?’ option is not enabled for the pick list type

After the user scanned the pick list, the system identifies the wave.

If the ‘Use for multi picking’ option is not set for the pick list type of the pick list, it cannot be picked in the multi picking flow. When picking a wave that contains such pick lists, the user has to scan these pick list among the other pick lists, but these pick list will not be taken into account when the system list the items to pick.

If the ’Multi picking: Allow to select wave?’ option is enabled on the Pick List Controller, the wave can be selected from a list.

When there are more than one batch of the item on the pick location, it has to be verified that the right batch is picked. When the product has been identified by scanning, the system will check that whether the batch and best before date information are included in the barcode.

19.2.7. Add quantity

After the product to pick has been identified, add the quantity to pick. For more information about the quantity adding screens see: Screens for entering additional information.

The number of the picked items can be modified, however there is a maximum limit:

  • When the quantity to pick is greater than the available quantity on the pick location, the operator cannot pick more than the available quantity.

19.2.8. Identify movable location or destination SSCC

19.2.8.1 Identify movable location

Identify the movable location to pick onto. Only the movable location assigned to the picklist can be scanned or selected.

On the bottom of the screen the following information is displayed:

  • Code of the movable location
  • Quantity to pick
  • Item code – description – barcode
  • SSCC number
  • Total quantity to pick

Moveable location

19.2.8.2 Identify the destination SSCC

In case there is an SSCC assigned in the Prepare carts flow, at this point you can scan the destination SSCC so that you can make sure that the items are in the right box.

On the screen you can see the SSCC number to be scanned and the movable location is also displayed.

With this step the status of the items becomes packed. You can start a Consolidated packing flow to double check the content of the boxes or the stock can go a through a shipping process immediately.

It is possible, through custom development, that multiple boxes are prepared for one pick list. If there are multiple boxes and it is not exactly defined what needs to be stored in which box, you will see a list of SSCC’s on the screen and you need to scan one of them.

19.2.9. Items are picked

After every item was picked, the system goes back to the ‘Scan the pick list number’ screen.

Because in the multi-picking flow it is mandatory to pick onto a moveable location, the status of the pick list after the picking will always be ‘Picked’ and the stock has to go through packing before it can be shipped.
