How do you make a strategy for bin ranking?

The bin ranking functionality applies to location with the checkmark in directed put away and picks and like you are doing bin order to perform a pick in a logical order when you actually work the pick, you could also use bin ranking on which bins to choose if an item is on several bins.

This is what happens in the video

So, this is an example of bin code, meaning the order you would perform the pick in, and this could be an example of bin ranking.

So, you might want to set the bin closest to the hall with a higher ranking the bin furthest away.
This means you can use replenishment on bins, and you can pick from the bin nearest to the hall not from the bin farthest away.
But it also applies to all your warehouse, so you have to think strategically about how to use this according to bin in production areas, bulk areas, etc.
