How to build proper container from the bulk location?

Hi All, 

I'm working on containerization in AX 2012 R3, CU13 and faced with unexpected behavior which I can't fix.

I have the following scenario:

Sales order for 10 Pallets of the Product A;

there are 10 pallets of the Product A in the BULK location;

every physical pallet of the Product A fits container type of "STD-Pallet"

location directive works fine and identifies BULK location as "Pick" location for all 10 Pallets;

SO work template has maximum unit = 1 Pallet, so the result of wave processing is 10 Work orders for every 1 pallet from BULK location.

BUT, all these works have the same Container ID, which of course has error as the container type of "STD-Pallet" could be assigned only per 1 physical pallet by physical dimension.


Container build template :

1) Pack by unit and Allow split pick == FALSE

2) Container packing strategy == Pack into current container only

3) Mixing logic breaks == Shipment Id

Container group has only one container type.

For non-bulk locations (one Licence plate per location) everything works fine.

Could you please help me to identify the reason of such containerization issue?

Are you trying to build a Parent-Child relation here for the containers?  In that case each container will have different container ID and all linked to a Parent Container ID.

Hi Narasimha,

no nested containers in my scenario. It looks like directive sends 10 Pallets in one request to the containerization functionality. So, system can't find the proper container size and fails.
