Interleaving - SAP WM

Use
Interleaving alleviates dead-heading in radio frequency-managed warehouses. After putaway, the forklift does not return empty to the goods receipt area to repeat its operation. Instead, the forklift operator receives a new assignment (for example, picking) upon returning. The cyclical nature of work assignments provides a continuous workflow for the forklift operator.

Integration
The interleaving function uses the putaway and picking/replenishment function.

Prerequisites

  • Transfer orders for picking/replenishment must be available in the warehouse and each of them should contain only one transfer order item. You can customize this by defining a transfer order split.
  • The transfer orders for putaway and picking/replenishment belong to the same queue.

Features
The user exit function allows you to define selection criteria for identifying the next transfer order to be processed for picking/replenishment. For example, you can determine to select a transfer order for picking with a source storage bin that is close to the destination storage bin of the transfer order that was just put away.

Interleaving: Selected by Storage Unit
Use

If no transfer order for picking/replenishment is available in this specific queue there is an option to rocess transfer orders not assigned to this queue by changing the access determination.
