What is a picklist?

Last Updated: Mar 07, 2018 04:42PM IST
It's a simple list containing the items to be picked from the specific shelves in a warehouse/store.

Using a picklist has never been mandatory. But it has many advantages attached to it, like, it can optimize the picking process by grouping the items to be processed together. It also ensures that a picker doesn't have to go the same shelf or nearby shelves in identical round trips to fetch products.



Picklist Status

A picklist is created in the system for the selected orders and the status of the system becomes Picking; on the picklist being received, the shipment is marked as picked. And the picklist is marked as closed as soon as all the orders in it are invoiced.
From the functional point of view, when the picklists are in either of the states: CREATED or RECEIVED, they are pending picklists, since the order items are not completely received at the invoicing station.

Notes
1) For Damaged/Putback item : 
The user needs to create the new putaway as Putaway picklist item where he can now mark Good/Bad Inventory and assign the shelf accordingly.

2) In case of package type as fixed and having multiple order item :
If user Not Found/ Damaged any shipment item before invoicing then all other picklist items belong to that shipment will be marked as PUTBACK automatically.

Scenarios
SCENARIO 1-Picklist contains multiple Packages and one of the package is cancelled before receiving the picklist.

SCENARIO 2-Picklist contains multiple Packages and one of the package is cancelled after receiving the picklist and generating the invoice.

SCENARIO 3-Picklist has 1 order with multiple items and one of the item is cancelled before generating the invoice

SCENARIO 4-Picklist has 1 order with multiple items and one of the item is cancelled after generating the invoice

STEP C - Close the Picklist



STEP D - Create Putaway PICKLIST ITEM for the cancelled Item for putting the item back into the desired shelf




SCENARIO 2-Picklist contains multiple Packages and one of the package is cancelled after receiving the picklist and generating the invoice.


STEP A - Invoices can be generated as usual for all the processing orders as mentioned in Step 4 Above

STEP B - Picklist can be closed 



STEP C - Go to Putaway Pending tab and complete the Putaway to add the inventory back 




SCENARIO 3-Picklist has 1 order with multiple items and one of the item is cancelled before generating the invoice
