Viewing pack plans

A pack plan is a description of all of the ordered goods that need to be packed on all of the bills of lading in a given wave. One pack plan is created for each Pick/Pack Wave.

To view a list of pack plans:

  • Select Wave Fulfillment>Pack Plans. A list of pack plans appears. If needed, you can filter or sort the list.

    If you have a multi-warehouse operation, make sure you have selected the correct warehouse from the Warehouse drop-down up above. Warehouse drop-down

To view a specific pack plan:

  • From Wave Fulfillment>Pack Plans, double-click the record or highlight the record and click View iconView. The pack plan displays.
    • To view general pack plan information: The general pack plan information is displayed at the top of the screen.
    • To view the list of pack plan items: In the Pack Plan Items table, select Full View from the drop-down. This view of the pack plan document displays all of the items in the pack plan.
      • To view information about how the pack plan items are related to other work in this wave, check the box to the left of a line item, and click Explore. (See Using the Explore screen.)
    • To view the list of unplanned items: In the Pack Plan Items table, select Unplanned View from the drop-down. This view of the pack plan document displays all of the items in the pack plan that have an Unplanned Qty greater than zero. Each line item is broken out by BOL # / Line #.

      Pack plan items have an Unplanned Qty greater than zero if the packer working on the BOL has rejected some of the items initially picked. A new pick plan must be created in order for these items to be picked and delivered to the packing station. Only then can the bill of lading be packed and closed.

To export the pack plans list to a spreadsheet:

  1. Sort or filter your list to isolate the group of records you want to export. You can also export the entire list, unfiltered, if you want. You can export up to 10,000 records.
  2. Click Export iconExport from the toolbar. The Export pop-up appears.

    Important: Do not close this pop-up. Closing the pop-up cancels your request for exported data. If needed, you can minimize the Export pop-up.

  3. Optionally, continue working in SmartTurn while your export request is being processed.

    Note: You can only create one export request at a time. However, you can continue with all of your other work in SmartTurn.

  4. When the export is complete, a dialog opens asking you if you want to open or save the file.
  5. Select Save. Save the file to a directory on your machine.
  6. A spreadsheet appears with the data you selected. SmartTurn exports many attributes of your data, not just the columns you see in the list view.
  7. At this time, it is safe to close your Export pop-up. Select Close if the pop-up does not automatically close once your export is complete.
