1. MAIN TAB, PRE-ALLOCATE OPTIONS 

Pre-Allocate in S/O Entry -

  • Yes allows manual entry and changes to hard-allocate (pre-allocated) inventory in Sales Order Entry.
  • No disallows manual entry (i.e., manual distribution and pre-allocations) in Sales Order Entry.
  • Auto Allocate as Order is Saved(*Premium Version) auto allocates inventory to the sales order as the order is saved. In Sales Order entry/Header tab the Auto Allocate checkbox is defaulted ON as orders are created and changed and will auto allocate the order as saved. That checkbox can be unchecked to not auto allocate the sales order. Auto allocate uses the full directed picking setup to calculate inventory to allocate.
  • The Summarize Lots option provides a pre lookup summary of Lotted inventory, eliminating quantities by location. This is useful when manually allocating desired lots and lot inventory is in many locations.
  • The Button to Auto Allocate Order(*Premium Version) provides the Allocate Button on the bottom of Sales Order entry. Pressing the button will auto allocate the order and redisplay the sales order lines panel so the results of the allocations can be quickly viewed. Auto allocate uses the full directed picking setup to calculate inventory to allocate.
  • Prompt as Lines Entered displays the distribution dialog as each sales order line is created
  • Allocate More than Entered allows over distribution in sales order entry. The quantity allocable in the distribution dialog is allowed to exceed the quantity ordered.

 

1. MAIN TAB, DISPLAY, ENTRY, BACKORDER-TRANSFER ALLOCATIONS


 

Display Multi-bin S/O Qty Available - provides alternate quantity available displays on the bottom of sales order lines panel while your field is on the Quantity Order field.

No Change does not change the quantity available calculation and display in Sales Order entry.

Stock Avail and NonSell Options display the non-sellable quantity in the quantity available field and the stock warehouse available.

Stock Avail less NonSell Options displays the computed quantity available using the stock quantity available and reducing the quantity available for non-sellable quantity.

Allocated Avail: QOH less Qty Alloc displays the Allocated Available for the warehouse which is the Item Quantity Available less the Quantity Allocated. Quantity Available is the Item Quantity On Hand less Non-Sellable Quantity if designated in options.

Backorder Allocations - This feature applies to pre-allocations in Sales Order Entry and as the order lines are shipped in Invoice Data Entry or Shipping Data Entry (“Invoicing”). If the full the sales order pre-allocation quantity is not used in Invoicing, then the balance of the allocation will be retained in the sales order. After the invoice is updated the allocation balance will be retained for the backorder. Leave this feature OFF if allocations will not be back ordered.

I/M Transaction Transfer S/O Entry Allocations - This option enhances Inventory Transaction Entry Transfers to exclude the quantity on S/O entry Pre Allocations. This provides the capability to transfer inventory and automatically move the S/O Entry Allocations. During I/M transaction Update the system will move allocations to keep the transferring location from net negative quantity available.

Clear Zero balance History During I/M Period End - Allows the system to clear zero balance item entries out of Bin Location Maintenance when the period is closed. Transaction history detail will remain.

Allow to Exceed Quantity Available for Non-Lot/Serial - This option allows the system to exceed quantity available by allocating more items from the bin then quantity on hand. This is especially useful for users who transfer items from auxiliary or overflow locations to a primary pick location. Select Only Selected Locations to allow exceed quantity available in designated locations. To exceed for a location set Exceed Available in the location option Allow to Exceed Quantity Available and Capacity.

Check Location Capacity in Entry - Only check put options verifies the directed put options for the location. The Ck Capacity and Put Options will also check the remaining balance of capacity during data entry.

Auto Assign Primary Bin Locations - Ideal for locations for quick pick areas. The system will auto create the primary bin location set up for the item when an item lands in a bin location designed as a primary bin location. As QOH is reduced, the primary setup is cleared when there is no stock. It will retain at least one primary setup. Minimums and maximum quantities are copied to the next location created.

I/M Trans Lot Serial Allocation - Select any option other than None to allow auto allocate bin locations during I/M Transaction entry transfers. The system will provide fields on the Transaction Entry Header panel for the default from and to locations.

Default to Transfer Allocations in Group/Grid Transfers - Check this option ON to default the quantity allocated in the Transfer grids screen.

Inventory Activity Dates: These activity date options enhances multi-bin transfers to default when the received and issued dates are changed. By leaving both of these options unchecked then the received and issued dates will change each time a transfer is performed. By checking them ON then dates will default to change when coming from an inbound or outbound staging location. Both transaction entry transfers and quick transfers provide a drop down Transfer Option field to override these defaults.

Received Date is set from Rec and FG Staging - The Receipt date is changed when transferring goods from a warehouse receiving (or an mfg finished goods) staging location or a location within the receiving (or an mfg finished goods) location region.

Issued Date is set from Ship and Raw Staging - The Issued date is changed when transferring goods to a warehouse shipping (or an mfg raw material) staging location or a location within the shipping (or an mfg raw material) location region.

Multi-Bin for Barcode Options: Auto Update Transfers in the Same Warehouse - While using RF barcode handhelds, this option allows the system to complete “quick” same warehouse transfers without going through the update process in Inventory Transaction Entry.

Next MB Transaction No - Provides an internal transaction number to group transactions. Individual transfers with the quick transfer are assigned a single number and group transfers are assigned the same number to group them. All items assigned to license plate ID (*P) are grouped with the same number as the ID is transferred.

  4. ACS WAREHOUSE MGMT SYSTEM OPTIONS - DIRECTED PICKING PANEL

INVENTORY MANAGEMENT > SETUP MENU

ACS Multi-bin and WMS Directed Picking automatically allocates inventory to sales orders so you can sell the optimal goods and from the optimal bin locations. Directed Picking options are first setup on a company level in ACS Warehouse Mgmt System Options. Options can be superseded in Product Line Maintenance for the Product Line and then Item Maintenance directed picking options provides the ultimate setting for the Item. Overrides to the picking algorithm can be done in the sales order, customer and other. Directed Picking requires activation and to be enabled on the main panel. This tab is disabled if Directed Picking is unchecked.

The different ways to auto-allocate orders before picking:

  • Auto allocations can occur automatically as the order is saved,
  • by clicking on the Allocate button in the order,
  • as the pick sheet is printed,
  • as orders are imported,
  • as the order is selected to pick on the handheld,
  • selected in Wave Batch and Stage Sales Orders

The allocated inventory for the sales order can be printed on the pick sheet to direct the picker and the information is resident on RF handhelds to both direct the pickers and to offer validation right goods and lots are picked. Click here to review more about Directed Picking.

 

Directed Pick location types. A typical distribution setup is where picking is from Pick Locations and to pick from the Primary bin locations first. Then to pick from the Overflow locations when the pick area is depleted or pick from the Overflow locations when there is a large order. Picking large orders from the Overflow helps you to not run out of inventory in the Pick Area. If you have non-breakable case packs or pallets - you can designate that and the system will know to get the case pack/pallet from the Overflow. We help you keep up stock in the primary locations or other pick locations with replenishment.

 

Pick Area– Non-Primary Locations different items usually exist in a location.

Pick Area– Primary Pick Locations. The same item exists year round or is in pick from first area.

Overflow Locations - usually has back stock, case packs, pallets.


Pick Area– Primary Pick Locations: Non-Lot Serial Items… check to allocate first and Lot Serial Items… check to allocate first

Bin Location Code allocates all areas to the next bin location code, ascending order

Least Quantity in Bin Location allocates all areas by the least quantity available in the location Received in Location FIFO allocates all areas in FIFO order, by the last received date in the location. Sort Code - Wave allocates all areas by the bin location sort code.

None allocates only within the Pick Area.

None Exceed Qty Avail allocates only within the Pick Area and exceeds quantity available if needed to allocate an order.

 

Receipt Date Fifo allocates by the Lot Serial oldest receipt date.

Lot Serial Number allocates by the lowest Lot Serial Number.

Expiration Date (*E) allocates by the oldest Expiration Date. If the goods are expired it will not allocate. The system will evaluate to include and exclude inventory based on the user defined the minimum and maximum expire days set in for Customers and Sales. Click for expired user fields. Null expire dates allocates first and by the Lot Serial Receipt Date.

Receipt Date Lifo allocates by the Lot Serial youngest receipt date.

None indicates to only allocate from the primary bin location to the extent of quantity available and to not go any further.

  

 Jump to Overflow and Other Areas for Large Orders, Case Packs and Pallets check to allocate based on the Large Order Minimum Qty Picks setting in Item Maintenance or when sales orders have the Unit of Measure code. The Increment Qty/Case Size designates quantity as non- breakable.

Other Areas: click ON to auto-allocate from these locations types/areas when the previous area, based on the priority code, is depleted.

Auto Allocate from Floor Locations floor location type can be designated 1st which indicates to allocate before the Primary Bin Locations.

Auto Allocate from Other Locations useful to allocate inventory from a nearby building or anywhere you want to pick the same day as the pick area.

Auto Allocate from Other Locations when you want to pick from the Other area automatically when the previous pick areas are depleted. Uncheck if you don’t to automatically pick from the Other area or when you want to pick from the Other area for a large order/case pack/pallet and with the minimum quantity to pick setting.

Auto Allocate from Overflow Locations when you want to pick from the Overflow automatically when the previous pick areas are depleted. Uncheck if you don’t to automatically pick from the Overflow or when you want to pick from the Overflow for a large order/case pack/pallet and with the minimum quantity to pick setting.

 

Auto Allocate from Staging Locations when you want to auto-allocate from Receiving and other staging locations. Usually unchecked so staging locations are not automatically allocated from.

 

Location Pick Complete if less Pick Locations when desiring to allocate when newer lots exist in locations with older lot serial items. If during allocation of for Lot Serial goods in FIFO if the system calculates fewer number of locations to pick because it encountered newer Lot Serial items.

Allocate Kits if can Ship Complete system will evaluate if the kit can allocate completely before allocating.

Include all Areas of Best Pallet Case ID system seeks to allocate ID from other IDs to fill an order.

Allocate the higher level IDs when possible the system will seek to allocate larger IDs for an ID to fill an order.

Allow auto allocation less than the full pallet case ID allows IDs to break in order to allocate. Uncheck to force full allocation of an ID to allocate.
