Partial Picking

Use

According to the standard settings, the system can only create transfer orders if all of the items in the outbound delivery can be completely fulfilled. For this reason, the system terminates creation of the transfer order if the current warehouse stock of the required material is not enough to stage the entire quantity for the outbound delivery.

Example Example

You have created an outbound delivery with two materials of 50 pieces each. Since you created the outbound delivery, 10 pieces of the material in the second item were removed from the warehouse so that now only 40 pieces are available. When you create the transfer order for this outbound delivery, the system issues a message saying that the picking requirement could not be completely met.

End of the example.

You use partial picking so that, in this case, you can still create transfer orders for the outbound delivery in the Warehouse Management system (WMS) .
