WMS Full pallet pick - mobile device

Posted on by 360

Hi,

the majority of our outbound goods is on full pallets. With the WMS (CU9) I have the location directives, work template, work classes, and Mobile device menus set up and everything works fine. Except if it comes to full pallet picks. The location directive follows the unit conversions and pulls from location with only full pallets, but when it comes to work and the mobile device I have some doubts that I have everything set up correctly

We store everything in eaches. The sample is a pallet where 1 plt= 8ea. A sales order is typically entered in 48 ea.

After releasing the warehouse and creating my wave and work I get the below.

2016_2D00_01_2D00_07_5F00_21_2D00_44_2D00_34.png

I get one work line for 6 plt (=48 ea). When opening the work on the mobile device the totals I get is 1 pick with a qty of 48.

When moving further the pi screen asks for the LP (on the bottom I see 6 plt, 48 ea.). After Ok I have to enter the next LP (at this time the LP from the first pick becomes the Target license plate).

At that point I would have to load already two full pallets onto my equipment with even knowing where to go.

This continues until I looped trough all 6 plts to get the final drop off location.

I have the suspicion I am missing either q work break or a different setting on my work template (currently a simple pick and put)

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

    Great. I have also setup the max to unit PL and that does create work for every pallet with a pick and put. I also added print to it. I set up also that print will only work for the pallets for now. I hope the license plate stays per PL .

    If you use the max on the work template that breaks the work by rmthe designated directive unit. If you need to print add the step to the work template before the put. You need to set up document routing for work type sales order. You can direct that to a specific work template.

    So far I have made the shipping label work but that will be next and I'll update that case

    Hi,

    Is there a way with work-break or something different to have 1 work but with repeated pick-put, pick-put and license plate or shipment information printing to a label after that step? I am practically a bit confused how workers still remember the pallet they just picked and put and then go for the other pallets.

    So pallet picking work:

    1. open mobile device, select work

    2. pick first pallet, seal it, print label with license plate 1 and put it to outbound (or staging/ packing)?

    3. pick next pallet, seal it, print label with license plate 2 and put it to outbound (or staging/ packing)?

    4. etc.

    5. Then print packing slip, bol and print shipping labels with license plate x for every pallet to indicate wat is on the load?

    I guess in this way the packing slip with contain every pallet as a separate license plate instead of moving them all into 1 (the first) target license plate?

    Any other ideas?

    J.

    As described works for me, but I am a bit puzzled because on my PO work template I didn't have to set a maximum and get the split automatically.

    Nevertheless Lauri's solution works!

    I am not sure this is the only way to do this but I achieved this by doing following setup:

    1) under Location Directives Lines I added two lines, first for pallets and second for eaches. For first line I used Restrict by unit = PL and also marked Allow split

    2) on work templates I created 2 templates, first for pallets and second for eaches. Template for pallets has smaller sequence number so it is processed first. Under the General tab I set up maximum qty as 1 and Maximum unit as PL

    In result it forces work creation to generate separate work for every pallet

    With 6 plt in that example I would expect 6 trips between the plt pick location and the drop of location.

    So you have two picks and one put? Is that what you want to achieve?
