Sorting for Transfer order not working as desired

Hello Friends,

I have a scenario in which picking is happening from different bins of the same storage type, storage type has a picking strategy-M (Large & Small quantity).

we already have defined all the required settings for TO sorting & Splitting in configuration.

But to my surprise system is not sorting the TO item when TO items are getting generated either in foreground mode in LT03 against the OD or in background mode.

As sorting is not working as configured, the order in which transfer orders are created for different bins due to TO split is not in the desired sequence, which is creating issue for business as it doesn't make sense for business to process those TOs through RF as it doesn't optimise the movement of warehouse operator from one bin to another bin.

Below are the configurations done for sorting and splitting:

Sort profile

Assignment of sort profile to split profile

Profile for performance data

Assignment of profile to movement type & sor & des sto type

Below you can see in LT03 system is proposing bins from same storage type for same batch in the order in which quantities are picked from different bins and there is no sorting done as per the sort profile from configuration. Why?

LT03 run in foreground TO preparation but not sorted

    Could you please ensure that you don't have any custom coding during the picking? If any enhancement is active, then can you deactivate it and check it again once?

    Refer this Wiki to check the active enhancements and steps to deactivate it.

    Hello Balaji,

    Thanks for the reply. I have already checked there is no user-exit or custom coding applied to the picking strategy.

    But do you know at what point sorting should occur? just before TO splitting, right? And whatever order the items are showing in LT03 final screen, what I have provided in my earlier screen shot, I think at that point sorting is not done and system must sort once we finally save in LT03 and then generate TO based on sorting & split profile.

    Please correct me if I am wrong.
