2.3.57. Picklist Proposal Generator

(1) Extension: Picklist Proposal Generator - Generates Picklist Proposals

Picklist Proposal Generator

Add empty rows for items with insufficient stock? (Y/N)
If set, the system will add rows with quantity = 0 to the proposal when there is no stock available. This can be used to quickly see if all stock is available.

Add empty rows for items with quantity to reserve zero? (Y/N)
If set, the system will add rows with quantity = 0 to the proposal when there is nothing to reserve. This can be used to quickly see if all stock is available. Useful in custom proposal generator.

Allow broken-up (incomplete) sales-item BOM's? (Y/N)
If the setting is enabled, the system adds components from a BoM when there is one or more component missing, that is, the system allows for selling an incomplete item (for example a desk lamp without a shade). The check is done based on the original BoM.

If the setting is disabled, those BoMs are not included in the picklist proposal for which there is not enough stock to fully complete them.

Base document - order by
When proposals are made, it is possible to do this for several orders in one time.
The system will group them by customer, ship to, and pick list type and item pick list types.
This option is to sort those orders within the same group.
Options:

  • Order by doc due date,
  • Order by line delivery date, doc entry,
  • Order by doc entry

Calculate stock status for expired stock (=slower creation)? (Y/N)
For a new database, the default value is set to No.
For existing databases where Produmex WMS is already installed, the default is set to Yes. It means that the system calculates the stock status for expired stock and will display the data in the Full stock and Stock compliant shelf life on the Pick List Proposal screen.
If it is set to No, the stock status is not calculated. As a result, no data will be displayed in in the Full stock and Stock compliant shelf life on the Pick List Proposal screen.

Force the proposed batch? (Y/N)
When this option is set to true, the batch the system proposes will be forced. This is used on ad hoc picking, in combination with the option ‘Allow multiple batches’ on a document line. When both are true, ad hoc picking can only pick from that batch, instead of any batch.

Prioritize pick locations over bulk locations? (Y/N)
If the setting is enabled and the Stock order by setting is set to Order by FEFO (FEFO_PickLocation), Produmex WMS chooses batches first in the pick locations even if the item has batches in bulk locations that expire first. Produmex WMS will use FEFO when selecting a batch from pick locations.

Produmex WMS selects batches from bulk locations only if there is no more available batch for that item in pick locations. When switching to bulk locations, WMS will use FEFO to select the next available batch.

Note: If the Stock order by setting is set to an option different from Order by FEFO (FEFO_PickLocation), the Prioritize pick locations over bulk locations? setting is not applicable.

Serial numbers stock order by
This option handles what stock should be taken first to put on the proposal, for serial numbered items with track location.
Options:

  • Use default order by
    The sorting of stock to allocate for serial numbered items with track location is the one defined in the “Stock order by” option.
  • Order by serial numbers (alphanumerical)
    The sorting of stock to allocate for serial numbered items with track location is: Oldest serial number found on LUID (serial numbers are sorted alphanumerically). The allocation is done on item-batch-LUID level.

Show pick list proposal info screen on incomplete proposal? (Y/N)
When this option is set to true, an additional screen will be shown after creating a proposal, and not all stock is on the pick list proposal.
The screen will show the information why not all stock was on a proposal.

Show proposals with pick lists on open doc. report? (Y/N)
When this option is set to false, the open documents report for pick list proposals will not show proposals that have already a pick list.

Stock order by
This option handles what stock should be first put on the proposal. The process makes use of bin locations from the entire warehouse, even if they are not marked as pick locations. For example, FEFO chooses the first expiring batch from the entire warehouse even if the batch is on a bulk location.

Options:

  • Order by FEFO (FEFO_PickLocation)
    The sorting of stock to allocate is: Expiry date, Batch number, batchnumber2. The allocation is done on item-batch level.
  • Order by FEFO Itri (FEFO_ITRI_PickLocation)
    The sorting of stock to allocate is: Expiry date, Batch ID. The allocation is done on item-batch level.
  • Order by LUID (LUID)
    The sorting of stock to allocate is: Has LUID, LUID, Expiry date, Batch number, batchnumber2.
    The allocation is done on item-batch-LUID level.
  • Order by Bulk, Full LUID, LUID, BBD, Itri
    The sorting of stock to allocate is: Non Pick location, Is full pallet, Has LUID, LUID, Expiry date, Itri.
    The allocation is done on item-batch-LUID level.
  • Order by Bulk, Full LUID, BBD, Itri, LUID
    The sorting of stock to allocate is: Non Pick location, Is full pallet, Expiry date, Itri, Has LUID, LUID.
    The allocation is done on item-batch-LUID level.

Try to group items on 1 proposal
When this is checked the system will try to group the items on 1 proposal. This means that each time a proposal is being made, it will try to close the existing one (If no pick list has been created yet), and create a new one for all remaining items.
When this is not checked, the system will always try to create a new proposal.

(2) Extension: Picklist Proposal Generator - Generates Picklist Proposals Grouped by Customer-Address

If multiple sales orders are selected for the same customer/address, they are grouped into one proposal.
