Explanation of the Strategy

It is generally assumed that only one picking strategy is allocated to each storage type. However, a strategy based on the storage type is not usable in all sectors of industry.

In WM, it is possible to pick stock according to the FIFO principle by taking into account all quants within a warehouse. In this case, the system does not scan individual storage types in sequence but it proposes the oldest quant in the entire warehouse as the quant to be removed from the warehouse. The system does not take into account the picking strategies specified for the individual storage types. This would lead to inconsistencies.

Some storage types should be excluded from the stringent FIFO strategy, otherwise incorrect picks would result. For example, the interim storage area for differences should be excluded from the stringent FIFO strategy. The stringent FIFO strategy is set or switched off in the table Exclusion of storage types from Stringent FIFO (see below).
