Understanding Warehouse Order Creatiom rule

Hello Experts,

I have a few questions regarding Warehouse order creation rule -

1) It is possible to group warehouse task in a warehouse order based on consolidation group and pick path. How to work with pick path in a warehouse? What configuration settings are needed to make system understand what is optimal path or so?

2) Also for consolidation group, activity area is assigned to a storage type, section,bin and consolidation group is pulled during this assignment. This is just an internal number that gets assigned.

While creating WO for outbound delivery I would want system to group task belonging to one customer? How to do that with consolidation group?

Regards,

Khushboo

    Yes, you can define the sort rules by Consolidation Group, Pick Path and place this sort rules in WOCR.

    This WOCR can be configured with creation category Pick Path(B).

    This must be deconsolidation group

    Consolidation group is determined from these combinations

    WH no+ship to party+Route+delivery priority+Door ( Spro->EWM->GI process->Define consolidation group

    Thanks Jobi and Alex for quick response,

    My client has a list of around 100 carriers which are categorized as small and large parcel carriers. For orders using Small parcel carriers we can group multiple orders for one customer for picking and packing..For orders using large parcel carriers should not combine multiple orders from same customer.I am not sure if I can in some way use route to map carriers and fulfill this requirement Any suggestion on that?

    • Hi!

      I read your req. again. if I understood correctly, you can use one WPT with WOCR limit = one cons. group per WO. For orders to small car. you should set  Packing Consolidation checkbox in ERP. But for large car. your orders give new cons.group each time when they are created.

      During the creation of outbound deliveries, the system determines the consolidation group for each delivery item. Depending on the setting of the Packing Consolidation checkbox, the system determines the consolidation group in the following way:

      • If the checkbox is selected, the system tries to find an existing consolidation group from the Maintain Consolidation Group transaction. If there is no appropriate consolidation group yet, the system creates a new one and adds it to the Maintain Consolidation Group transaction for later reuse.
      • If the checkbox is not selected, the system creates a new consolidation group but does not add it to theMaintain Consolidation Group transaction. Therefore, the new consolidation group cannot be reused.
