The format of the standard put-away template has been enhanced to add features, improve usability and allow it to be easily extended.
Each line on the put-away template is now referred to as a ‘rule set’.
In addition to the standard rules of:
- Fin Fixed Bin
- Find Floating Bin
- Find Same Item
- Find Unit of Measure match
- Find Bin with less than Min. Qty.
- Find Empty Bin
The following new rules have been added:
|Prevent Different Item Variants||The template prevents a mix of item variants being placed in the same bin to reduce picking errors.|
|Prevent Different Units of Measure||The template prevents a mix of item units of measures being placed in the same bin to reduce picking errors.|
|Prevent Different Lots||The template prevents a mix of different lots of the same item being placed in the same bin to reduce picking errors.|
|Place in specified Bin Area||The template uses Bin Areas to define the correct bin for specialised goods handling. See Bin Areas in this user guide for more information.|
A rule set (line) can be created by selecting the New Rule Set… action from the ribbon. .:
An existing rule set can be amended by selecting the line. Rulesets can be re-ordered by selecting Increase Priority or Decrease Priority from either the ribbon or the context menu of the selected rule set.
A rule set can be removed by selecting Remove Rule Set from the ribbon.
When creating or amending a rule set the following dialog will be displayed:
This shows a list of the available rules. Rules can be included/removed from the rule set by checking the option next to the rule.
Note: As part of the install of the extension existing Put-away templates will be converted to the new format automatically and will function identically.
