Goods issue for anoutbound delivery in the Warehouse Management system (WMS) includes picking and goods issue posting for a material to be delivered, based on the outbound delivery. If you map the goods issue process via an outbound delivery, you can execute the processes related to the goods issue within the warehouse (picking, stock removal) before you trigger the actual goods issue posting.
