    Description: Scanco Wave Batch Picking allow the scanner user to choose a pre-assigned pick list that contains prioritized inventory and orders and directs the user through the warehouse to collect the items.


    Scanco will sort the list by Sort Code if it is set up as shown below within Multi-Bin Location Maintenance. NOTE: All bins should be assigned Sort Codes if you plan to use this option if you do not setup Sort Codes items will be in bins without sort codes and be out of order. If the sort code is not set up, the programming will sort by bin - lowest to highest.

    Pick Lists Types:

    Master Pick List – User will pick all items from all warehouse \ bins.

    Split Pick List – User will pick a subset of items from the Master Pick List.

     Pick Lists Options:

     The pick list can be created in many different ways including:

    1. Pick all orders from all warehouses.
    2. Pick all orders from one warehouse.
    3. Pick items within a range of bins.
    4. Pick items within a region.
    5. Pick a certain number of lines.

    Wave Batch Order Process:   Sage > Sales Order > Main > Wave Batch Order Selection

       Creating A Single Master List:

    Following the arrows below:

    1. Click next list button.
    2. Enter a description if needed.
    3. Enter Order numbers range and press Select \ or one order at a time and press Select after each entry to add it to the Sales Order List grid
    4. Red box 4 = Select button described in the previous step.
    5. Double arrow moves orders over to ‘Selected for this wave grid’.
    6. To create a single list, make sure the “Auto-Split” is ‘Unchecked’ and press “Allocate” button.
    7. Accept to finish, and then run the list on the scanner.

    NOTE: To create a Master List and split list you need to check “Auto Split” before you Allocate.

    Creating a Split list:

    Start by checking your options:  In order to allow for creating Split List, set Auto-Split to anything other than NONE and set the Fillrate higher than zero.

    Follow the same steps as the Master List Creation process BUT make sure you check “Auto Split” before Allocate in Step 6.

    Before Collecting First Item.

    Quantity Prompt.

    By looking at the Quantity Ordered, Quantity to Pick, Quantity Picked the user can enter any quantity up to the Quantity Ordered.




     After Collection of First Item.

    On the right, you will see the result of data collected includes quantity picked and destination or staging bin. On the left, the next item to be picked on the scanner.

    Collecting quantity less than the quantity ordered.

    If the user chooses to enter a quantity lower than the quantity ordered at the quantity prompt, the quantity will be accepted.

    In my example on the right, I will enter a quantity of 40.

    The result of data collected on the right showing quantity collected is less than ordered, and the next item on left.


    The “Send” Button.

    The user will press the “Send” button at the item prompt if they wish to finish the list without collecting every item and \ or quantity on the list.

    Example: If the quantity collected is lower than the quantity ordered, then the list is not complete.

    Changing the Staging bin.

    After changing the Staging Location, the application will move back to item collection.

    Incorrect Quantity Message.

    The user cannot collect a quantity that is higher than the quantity Allocated \ Ordered.




    Exiting Without Finishing.

     During the picking process, the lines are locked for the scanner user. If the user chooses to exit before finishing or ‘Sending’ their data collected, they have to confirm the message shown on the right.

    Yes = unlocks the lines so another user can continue the list.

     No = leaves the lines locked and this user must finish them later or come back in an unlock them.

     All the items and quantity collected are retained no matter which option you choose.


    Finishing the list completely.

    When the user collects the last item, the program will offer to send the data to complete the list.


    Commit = finishes the list and transfers the items.


    Review = allows the user to remove and redo incorrect entries.


    Next list = places the focus back at the Wave pick number prompt.
