Introduction:

In this blog post you will learn about the splitting of full and partial pallet pick WTs into separate warehouse orders where in one warehouse order is devoted for full pallet and the other one for half pallet.

For instance, there are business cases in which, a dedicated person is assigned to pick up only full pallets using forklift and it is not required for the warehouse employee to carry any pick HU. However, the other person earmarked for partial pick should carry pick HU. In such scenarios, we need to group all the full pallets warehouse tasks into one warehouse order and all the partial pallet warehouse tasks into another warehouse order.

It is to be noted that the stock received from suppliers is always as full pallet (example each pallet contains 30 Quantity) and it will be placed in a single storage. Also, there are no separate storage types for full and partial pallets.

Solution Approach:

The below mentioned configuration steps can be employed to achieve this functionality:

  • There are some specific indicators that should be enabled in the storage type to achieve this scenario.

    • Level of quantity: Highest-level HU.

    • HU Picking Control: Propose source HU as Destination HU.




With the above setting, the system will propose the source HU as the destination HU during the warehouse task creation (Full pallet pick).

Configure/enable storage type settings using the below mentioned node:

IMG Path – SPRO -> IMG -> SCM Extended Warehouse Management -> Extended Warehouse Management -> Master Data -> Define Storage Types.





  • Define filters for the warehouse order creation rules using the below mentioned node:


IMG Path – SPRO -> IMG -> SCM Extended Warehouse Management -> Extended Warehouse Management -> Cross-Process Settings -> Warehouse Order-> Define filters for the warehouse order creation rules.

Filter for full pallet pick:

If the warehouse task contains the same source and destination HU, then system will consider this is as a full pallet pick and it will successfully pass through the item filter: FULL.


Filter for partial pick:

If the warehouse task contains only the source HU, then system will consider this is as a partial pick from a pallet and it will successfully pass through the item filter: PART.




  • Define creation rules for warehouse orders using the below mentioned node:


IMG Path – SPRO -> IMG -> SCM Extended Warehouse Management -> Extended Warehouse Management -> Cross-Process Settings -> Warehouse Order-> Define creation rules for warehouse orders.

Define and update the sort rules, limit, and packaging profile as per your requirement in the warehouse order creation rules.

Creation rule for full pallet pick:


Creation rule for partial pick:




  • Define search sequence of creation rules for activity areas using the below mentioned node:


IMG Path – SPRO -> IMG -> SCM Extended Warehouse Management -> Extended Warehouse Management -> Cross-Process Settings -> Warehouse Order-> Define search sequence of creation rules for activity areas.


Testing:

  • Parts:1108 & 1109 are used to perform this testing.


Ensure the stocks are available for these 2 parts using a warehouse monitor before execution of this test. The put away rules for this storage type: N023 is an empty bin, such that each bin will contain only one pallet.

Stock for the part 1108:


Stock for the part:1109:




  • Outbound delivery: 80004011 is created.





  • In the delivery screen, create warehouse task manually by clicking on CREATE button and then SAVE.


Outbound delivery screen can be reached using the t-code:/SCWM/PRDO.




  • Warehouse task can be viewed in the monitor screen using the transaction code:/SCWM/MON.


In this scenario 4 warehouse tasks are created, that is 2 warehouse tasks for full pallet pick and 2 warehouse tasks for partial pick. As per the configuration setup, 2 full pallet warehouse tasks are grouped to one warehouse order and other 2 partial pick warehouse tasks are grouped to another warehouse order.


Conclusion:

This blog post explains the configuration steps involved in the grouping of full pallet WTs in a one warehouse order and partial pallet WTs in a other warehouse order for a delivery with the test results.
