A picklist is a report which shows a list items to be retrieved or “picked” from a warehouse for outgoing shipments. They are ordered by the location of the items in the facility, so that a “picker” would be able to go through the warehouse and retrieve the items in the same sequence as the pick list. The idea is that you pick orders, then pack them, and then they become shipments.
Configuring Warehouse Locations
If you wish to have the system order your picklists based on the location of items in the warehouse, you need to create locations for your warehouse first. You can fill in the codes for area, aisle, section, level, and position which denote the particular location in the warehouse. A sequenceId which will be used later to determine the order of picking will be generated based on these codes. The type of a location can be “Bulk” or “Pick/Primary”. Inventory in “Pick/Primary” locations will be put on picking lists. Inventory stored in bulk items must be transferred first in a Stock Move.
Below the location is a menu for associating products in each location. “Minimum” is the minimum quantity at a location before a move is triggered, and “move” is the quantity moved each time. Note that this is the same as the [Catalog] > [Product] >> [Locations] screen in the catalog manager.
