Pick and Pack Manager Very Slow and not Practicle to Use

We have used the Pick and Pack Manager to release goods from Sales Order through to Invoice. The functionality offered is good, but in practise the system is so slow it is taking 2 to 3 times longer than copying to a Sales Invoice.

Is there any way of cutting out part of the process to speed things up? What we really need is to be able to create an invoice(s) straight from the Pick and Pack manager.

    Hi

    Lets analyse and hope to narrow down your issue

    We have used the Pick and Pack Manager to release goods from Sales Order through to Invoice. The functionality offered is good,

    > Slow performance could be triggered by multile issue , so lets wait

    > Do you know PICKand PACK manager is only for status ,but it actually doesn't affect inventory level .

    but in practise the system is so slow it is taking 2 to 3 times longer than copying to a Sales Invoice.

    > You need to do delivery first and transfer the delivery into invoice .

    Is there any way of cutting out part of the process to speed things up? What we really need is to be able to create an invoice(s) straight from the Pick and Pack manager.

    >> It basically depends upon your business process . but by software , You can bypass Pick and PACK Manager process. You can transfer your sales order into A/R invoice and while posting A/R invoice , inventory will be reduced .

    Hope this help to narrow down your issue

    thank you

    This performance depends on all your HW / SW, network and databases. Since HW and SW is not that easy to be changed quickly enough, you can do something with your database to shrink, index and make it in the best performance status. You should check your network connection too. As for the system function, it is hard coded there. I don't think there are any ways to change it.

    Thanks,

    Gordon

      Hi,

      If you are connected trhu citrix then it is obvious. Please check the space in the disk C:\. MSSQL 2005 takes the privilage to aquire most of space in your drive. Also if your Company database size is ig >1.5GB then also it is obvious unless you have a RAm config>4-5GB.

      This also depends on the So size. If you are having >50 line items you cannot expect it to be very fast as it does in case of copying 1 row.

      So the moral is, as gordon suggested, it depends on the HW and SW specifications, connectivity, data size and server configuration.

      Regards

      Raj

    In our Distribution One add-in, we have a feature that allows a "pick complete" that bypasses the pick/pack manager for orders that can be filled completely.

    We added this because of customers finding pick/pack manager slow in higher volume (>300 orders a day) environments.

    We also have comparable functionality to pick/pack manager in our DataCollect One add-in, which runs outside of the B1 User Interface but provides the same level of function (as well as bar code capability for light WMS environments).
