Warehouse order - Sorting warehouse task by destination bin during the confirmation

Hi All,

During the creation of a warehouse order the inbound sorting of the warehouse tasks according my WOCR for the pathseq (source Bin) was done correctly, this means that during my "picking" the PATHSEQ will be obeyed.

Now we need to confirms them in the bin destination , however, it is necessary that during this confirmation in RF the tasks are ordered by pathseq corresponding to the destination bin.

I have tried the inbound sorting and WO sorting configurations according to the attached file. .....But that did not give me the expected result.

Pls any ideas?

Best Regards

    Hi,

    let me try to understand: you want to sort twice according to pathsequence? First according the source bins (which makes sense) and then according the destination bins (which makes also sense).

    Hi,

    well, what the most optimized path is, is always open for discussion :-). But I do not think that your requirement can be solved in the standard (and as usual, I am happy to learn that I am wrong).

    Most processes looks the way that either all material comes from one bin and is distributed in several bins (putaway from the goods receipt area) or comes from various bins and goes into one bin (picking). And then sorting is done for the pathsequence either for putaway or picking. Your situation is replenishment, this is why you have several bins in both ends. Now often I think we would assume that replenishment is one full pallet and you move the pallets one by one, so the pickpath does not really matter. But if you combine several items in one WO for replenishment - I would think there is just one sort sequence.

      I agree :-)

      The situation here is very specific due to limitations of physical space x large volume of picking, coupled with sales orders that have a very late cut time. In other words we have a pick cart with a maximum volume of 1,000.00 CCM, which goes all night making replenishment to several material and N-N (source-bins - dest-bin)

      thank you very much for the help.

      BR,

    Hi Juergen & Fabio,

    I think we see a very valid requirement here which is not only applicable during replenishment. For all kind of picking processes where we are using WOCRs with multiple pick-HUs we might have to confirm multiple different destination bins. Also SAP is more & more supporting these kind of processes (e.g. with the new fiori app for cart picking).

    We do have a multi-order picking process in place where we pick to 4 different pick-HUs and place each one to a different buffer bin at the packing work center. At least for us it is considering the sort sequence for activity PICK (the one from the WPT of the picking WT) to sort the WTs to the destination before they are proposed to the picker at the RF (they cannot select on their own - after picking the HUs to be confirmed are populated to him one-by-one). In the screenshot you can see in the attachment you will notice that the confirmation timestamps reflects the sorting of the destination WTs which is in line with the sorting of the destination bins for the activty PICK.

    Please try this setup. If it does not work for you I will check our coding but I am 90% sure we did not implement any kind of custom logic here.

    Regards,

    Hendrik

    Hi Juergen,

    I hope you are well.

    Exactly this, because during the confirmation(dest Bin) I need to propose the most optimized path to the forklift.

      in addition to just reminding (Let's have multiple tasks with multiple Source Bin and Destination Bin for the same WO)

    Hi Fabio,

    Please try this BADI (/SCWM/EX_RF_PICK_WT_RESEQ & /SCWM/IF_EX_RF_PICK_WT_RESORT) for your requirement.

    Kind Regards,

    Ajit
