Picking/Replenishment - SAP WM

Use
The picking execution in the mobile environment is based on transfer orders for picking, which are created in the Warehouse Management system or through a radio frequency function. Via radio frequency, you carry out transfer order execution to confirm the removal of the goods from the bin.
Return transfer orders can only be confirmed in background mode.

Prerequisites
For the automatic creation of pick handling units (HU):
If you are working with handling unit-managed storage locations, you can define that pickhandling units are to be created and assigned automatically when you create transfer orders. In Customizing for Handling Unit Management choose Basics Warehouse Management Define Control for Automatic Creation of Pick HUs. In the Packaging Materials field you can define a default packaging material for a specific warehouse. It is assigned automatically when you create the pick HU.

If the entire material quantity is picked, propose a source handling unit as a destination handling unit. In Customizing for Handling Unit Management, choose Basics Warehouse Management Define Storage Type and Define Movement Type. Enter the value 1 in the HU Picking Control field. If you choose this Customizing option, the system does not support the reporting of differences.

Picking from an SU managed bulk storage type:
A transfer order created for an SU-managed bulk storage type has no reference to specific storage unit numbers, because the system cannot identify which storage units are picked until they are physically removed from a storage bin. When you confirm the transfer order, you have to enter or scan the storage unit number(s) that were actually picked.

To confirm a transfer order for picking from an SU-managed bulk storage type through a radio frequency transaction, it is required that a transfer order item is created for each pallet. In Customizing for Logistics Execution, choose Warehouse Management Storage Units Strategies Define Bulk Storage Area Define Storage Type Control. Enter the value Y in the Round off field.

Features
The following options exist for the identification of pick transfer orders:

  • Picking: Selected by Transfer Order
  • Picking: Selected by Delivery
  • Picking/Replenishment: System-Guided
  • Movement: Selected by Storage Unit
