Split Pick Work Line by Warehouse Picker

How often do warehouse pickers come to a location that does not the total quantity of an item that the work line is asking to be picked?

Currently when pickers have a work line calling for a certain quantity of an item, the picker has only a few options when the location they are at does not have the quantity the work line is calling for. But none of those options allow the user to pick what they can in order to keep going and maintain the same work header.

  • With Split Pick, the user can split off a quantity that they do not have onto another work line that is on the same header. Then they can override the location on that work line to pick the remaining quantity.
  • Keeps all the work on the same work header instead of across multiple headers. Easier to track work and maintain outbound work orders.
  • Allows the pickers to pick what they physically can without having to come back to that location to finish of the work. They can split the work off in hopes of finding the inventory elsewhere.
  • Opens up more options for the picker and allows them to efficiently complete their work.
  • Has the ability to be enabled/disabled per menu item

Split Pick functionality works similar to the Full functionality in the RF. But instead of splitting off the work onto another work header, it maintains the same work header. Imagine that a work line says that location ABC has item 123 in it and is asking for a qty of 5. When the picker comes to that location, they only see qty of 4 of item ABC. So with Split Pick, they can split off 4 from the original work line, creates a new work line for qty of 1 and then proceeds to complete the work for the qty of 4 of item 123. Then they come to the new work line of item 123 for qty 1. The user now has the option to override the location and go pick that qty there or they can skip the line if there is no more qty in the warehouse. This new functionality fits right into functionality that already exists like Full, Skip, Cancel, and Short Pick. All this new functionality provides is another option for pickers to efficiently execute a work header.
