FLOW RACK Configuration WM (NOT EWM)

I'm implementing a Flow Rack configuration in WM, the functionality needed is that each bin will take up to 12 pallets, no mix of batch/expiration date, no mix sku and remove strategy is FIFO.

This is in a production facility where all the product coming from production has to be putaway into the rack before shipping.

I started the configuration as a Bulk area bin, where I can determine the number of stacks per bin.

I will try not to create two bin locations (one per side) but to use the same bin number id for the front and the back of the rack.

The system will fist look for a bin with the same batch/sku/exp date and then will look for next empty bin.

the SU is not assigned to the pick ticket when it is printed, it will only show you bin, qty and sku

the system will direct you to the correct bin

when the pallet is removed from the location by scanning, the SU will be added to the pick ticket.

Do you think this is the correct approach for this kind of storage?

please confirm
