How do you handle multiple production orders in one pick?
If I’m working in Business Central on locations with directed put away and pick checkmark in the location set up, it’s possible to create warehouse picks to production order in a pick worksheet as a pull strategy.
This is what happens in the video
And one of the points of doing that could be to combine several production orders into one warehouse pick, meaning we will release the production order, and after that we will make the warehouse employee take control of what to do and when how to create their pick.
So, from a pick worksheet, it’s possible for me to get source document either for just one production order, but also for more than one production order.
So in this scenario, I would just fetch one order at a time entering the line into my pick worksheet, and I could do that from different scenarios or algorithms depending on my production lines or whatever, and it just bundle up lines in here.
And when I’m done, I could create my warehouse pick and deselect per worksheet documents.
With this checkmark set, it would still create one pick documents or one warehouse pick per source document, but if I deselect it, it will create, of course, one warehouse pick activity for all the lines in here.
And this means I can bundle my warehouse pick and I would do this, for instance, if the startup of a pick activity is complex compared to the actual picking.
So, this is an example of a warehouse employee now picking one warehouse pick to several production orders.
