Adding Picked Quantity and Status to Shipment Screen for use with WMS

Scenario #1:  Shipment #001 is created with a Status of Open.  Warehouse personnel start the picking process and pick all of the items on the shipment. They deliver these items to the packing station for the next step. In the meantime, a cycle count is in progress.  The warehouse personnel find a discrepancy in a bin location for an item that was picked on Shipment #001.  They adjust inventory to match what they have counted.  Back to the packing station where they completed their process and Confirm Shipment.  Inventory is now reduced by the quantities on the shipment.  

 

Scenario #2:  Shipment #002 is created with a Status of Open.  Warehouse personnel start the picking process and pick a portion of the items on the shipment. They stage the portion picked near the packing station and wait for additional items to arrive for picking. In the meantime, a cycle count is in progress.  The warehouse personnel find a discrepancy in a bin location for an item that was picked on Shipment #002.  They adjust inventory to match what they have counted.  Back to the packing station several days later where they received the additional stock items and completed their process to Confirm Shipment.  Inventory is now reduced by the quantities on the shipment.  

 

Result:  Inventory has been adjusted twice due to the delay in the update of the Qty on Hand.  Shipments cannot be confirmed in advance due to a timing issue or lack of goods on hand.

 

Solution:  (requires the use of WMS)

1. Add to the Shipment screen the following statuses:  Partially Picked, Picked

2. Add to the Shipment screen detail line a Qty Picked field

3. Add a display value to the bottom of the shipment screen (when you have focus on an inventory item) to show Adj Qty On Hand (this would be "Qty On Hand"  minus "Picked Qty").

4. Modify the Physical Inventory process to optionally count based on Adj Qty On Hand.
