It is not uncommon in manufacturing to have to pick numerous items from a stock room and move the goods out to the production line(s). The process flow would be similar to automated picking for a shipment when items are moved to a sorting or packing location and receive/putaway.
Production order is scanned
Scans the tote/cart
scans the destination location (this is the location from which the materials will be issued.
Scans the first pick location
scans the item and qty (qty should be defaulted)
scans lot/serial if required
A 1 step transfer is created.
The use of carts/totes is currently only used in sales orders and purchase receipts and is not available for transfers.
