WMS has 2 types of picklists which can be set in Picklist Configuration
Eg : If the wave size is set as 100, Wave frequency is set as 15 minutes, the system will make sure that at every 15*x minute would have 100 picks pending to be picked.
If the first wave of 100 has been released at the start of operations and the pickers have picked 40 items in 15 minutes. The next picks that would be released is 40, as the 60 items released in the earlier picklist are not yet picked. The system maintains the wave size defined is reached at each frequency.
Number of Picklists to be released in each wave frequency
Time Period in which the no. of Picklists specified in Wave Size will be released
Express Picking has 2 definitions
Express Picking CPT
CPT is the other word for SLA/Required by time of the order set by Marketplace.
When the Express Picking CPT is defined for a marketplace the orders that falls under the same day SLA would be released for Picking.
Express Picking Priority
Few orders would be pushed from marketplace with Priority flag as true, the orders has to be processed quikly.
Picking of Express items
Picker has to turn on the toggle of Express Picking in the Piece Pick Item screen for picking the Express items.
Default picking is auto selected by default. The Release Preference can be set as
When this option is selected, picking would be done as per priority given to the Channel. The items belonging to the Channel with highest priority would be picked first. 1 is the lowest priority and 10 is the highest.
When this option is selected, picking would be done based on the required_by time (SLA) of each order, regardless of the Channel they belong to. The oldest SLA order will be release first.
Handling Picklist Configuration Dynamically
It is always suggestible to handle picklist configuration dynamically as per the order volume and ops capacity.
Let’s consider the following scenarios for better understanding
Marketplaces live: X(1:00 PM CPT), Y and Z(2 PM CPT)
Orders to be picked for same days SLA
As X has the earlier CPT, Configure X under Express Picking CPT definition with the wave size>=X SLA orders
Post all the picklists are released for X for the same day SLA under Express Picking.
Release the Picklist for Y and Z set the wave size >= Y + Z SLA orders
The same process can be followed for the marketplaces which are having higher SLAs in the same day.
Priority orders to be Picked
X creates few orders with Priority flag as true, the picklist has to be released under Express picking with Prioity definition.
All the same day SLA orders are picked/ Defining picklist for future SLA orders
Note: Picker can sort the picklists by release time, pickers are to be instructed to pick the older picklist first. Supervisor has to dynamically configure the picklists basis on the use case.
Issues and Debugging steps
Issue: If picklist is released mistakenly by a warehouse operator and client wants to get the actor name.
Steps of Action:
Note: timestamp1 and timestamp2 is the timestamps in between which picklist was released.
