- What are queues
- Adapters for the picking queues
To be able to start a process in the terminal (picking, packing, sorting, allocating, measuring, returns) you have to have created queues to manage the orders.
- Queues are a way of managing how you process the orders.
- Some have different settings ( wave for picking a single order, or wave for picking many orders at once, how many orders per wave, etc.);
- Every queue contains certain orders.
- There are 2 kinds of adapters for the picking queues – routed_batch and discrete adapter.
Adapters for the Picking queues
1 – With the Routed_batch adapter, the system will never ask you to scan an order.2 – You can choose the type of settings you want** settings: – When it is ‘Pickin by order‘ – this way you will be picking by order and put ready order for packing (in distribution place).
– Cross-order picking – Assigns tasks immediately, so the picker gets tasks for picking immediately. If this is off – the picker gets tasks after he has scanned any static place.
– *When it is ‘Pickin by wave‘ – Picking multiple orders.A Wave gives tasks for the picker to pick items that are close to him, these can be the items of the same and/or different orders. 2 pickers can do item picking of 1 order. Then on sorting all items will be ‘Allocated’ for Orders.Note: For more information on creating the queues, please read the article at this LINK.
This adapter is for ‘Picking by order ID’ – for a specific order
