"Outgoing orders" is the main module of PULPO WMS, in which the warehouse manager from the control center manages order picking. There are intelligent algorithms in the works that will partially automate this task.
The "Queued" view shows all orders pending for picking.
The orders can be filtered according to the following criteria:
- Number of products in the order
- date or period
- Individual search by criteria (customer, product, consignment number)
2. In the menu on the top left you can filter on the status of the orders to quickly get an overview.
3. When selecting a single order, a single pick task (picking) can be created.
Alternatively, the order can be split into several pick orders by clicking on the "Split" symbol next to it. In this case, all pickers are sent to the same pack position after the pick of the last product (defined by the first picker to complete their task) to collect all products of the order and prepare them for shipment.
4. When selecting several orders, the two options "batch picking" and "rolling picking" are activated (called "wagons" in PULPO WMS). In this example we will create a car.
The picker receives a pick task that creates an optimized route across all products of different orders.
In contrast to batch picking, where the picker sorts all products together and the orders are divided by different packing tasks, the picking process picks directly into identifiable (scannable) boxes.
PULPO WMS adapts flexibly to the circumstances of the customer and ensures that the picker always gets the box specified and has to scan it in shortly so that there is no confusion.
The rolling order picking can mean big efficiency savings, as several pick orders are optimally expired and already pre-sorted the packers in boxes are provided.
This feature is especially popular with our ecommerce customers or fulfillment providers for ecommerce customers, where there are often orders with one or a few products. See article Mobile APP: 3.1) Cart-Pick / Rolling Picking APP
5. In the "Picking" view you can see that the orders have been summarized.
6. The "Pack" view gives you an overview of all pack tasks. Here you can see a finished packing, with the information which products were packed in which box.
