Creating waves of work: pick to staging

A Pick to Staging Wave allows you to optimize your picking operations by combining the goods to be picked from across many sales orders. After the picking is complete you still need to fulfill each sales order, for example using shipments.

There are three main steps to creating a Pick to Staging Wave:

  1. Plan: The planning step is where you consider your operation and your goals in using wave processing. You need to:
    • Decide what you want your waves of work to look like
    • Decide what you want your pick tickets to look like
    • Decide how you are going to fulfill your sales orders after you have picked all of the goods to a staging location
  2. Configure: The configuration step is where you instruct the system based on the decisions you make during the planning step. You need to:
    • Create pick ticket templates
    • Create a pick policy to use in creating each wave and in sales order fulfillment
  3. Run: The run step is where you actually create the wave and execute it on the warehouse floor. You need to:
    • Review your pending sales orders, perhaps creating a filter for your wave
    • Create the wave, that is, select the sales orders and create a pick plan
    • Create one or more batches of pick tickets from the pick plan
    • Monitor the progress of the wave while the picking is completed
    • Fulfill the sales orders
