Picking an order involves pulling items from your warehouse’s inventory to fill an open order. You can pick a single order or multiple orders at a time. When you pick items using a mobile device, NetSuite WMS can guide you through the warehouse by suggesting the bin locations from which to pick items. It also decreases the available stock level of picked items. On your mobile device, you automatically skip the steps for bin entry and staging when you pick non-inventory items or items from warehouse locations that do not use bins.
For single order picking, you can select an unreleased order to pick and automatically generate the wave transaction. Like orders released in waves, sales or transfer orders must be in Pending Fulfillment status and must have committed lines.
You can set the following system rules or preferences to modify order picking through NetSuite WMS:
NetSuite WMS submits jobs to process the picking of orders that exceed 50 pick task lines and the staging of orders that exceed 25 pick task lines. If you activate the system rules for bulk picking or bulk staging, you can change these default limits for the number of pick tasks.
If you activate the Enable Tally Scan rule, each time you scan a picked item, you increment the picked quantity by 1. This rule displays the Tally Scan field on the Enter Quantity page.
If you activate the Use carton rules, you can use cartons for single and multiple order picking. It adds the Enter Carton page to the appropriate order picking flow.
You can reuse a pick carton after you pack all of its items. The fulfillments associated with the items must be in Packed status.
Aside from multi-order picking, the Use cartons for multi-order picking? rule also applies to bulk order picking of serialized items only. Serialized items included in waves for bulk order picking follow the multi-order picking flow. You can pick serialized items per order and place them in pick cartons.
If you activate one of these rules and use the Mobile Printing capability, you can enable pick carton label printing. You can activate the Print pick carton labels? rule for each process in which you use pick cartons. It adds the Mobile Printing capability to the Enter Carton page.
For picked or staged items, you can set your fulfillment preference to automatically generate fulfillment records per order or per order line. When you process partially picked items, you must close the pick tasks first, before you can generate the fulfillments.
To enable picking items from zones, see Picking Orders from a Zone.
