Warehouse supervisors or managers, who use the Accellos One Warehouse Web
Dispatch application for daily warehouse operations and management.
Accellos, Inc. partners and resellers, and warehouse system administrators or IT
managers, who need to understand Accellos One Warehouse functions for the

About This Document
Accellos One Warehouse Product Structure

ACCELLOS ONE WAREHOUSE PRODUCT STRUCTURE


The Accellos One Warehouse product line is structured as follows:

Collect EditionThe 'basic' or 'easy' edition of Accellos One Warehouse. Collect is designed
to be a true entry-level product. It offers simplified user processes and implementation, while
still providing a robust WMS solution.

Manage EditionThis is essentially the Collect Edition with the addition of the Kitting and
Multi-Zone modules. It maintains the simplicity of the entry-level Collect Edition, while
providing Kitting' for sites that need some sort of production facility and Multi-zone
functionality for sites that need to use zones for specific purposes such as hazmat or freezers
or if they define their warehouse layout using different zones. The Manage Edition also allows
you to optionally purchase additional modules, as required.

FulFill EditionBuilds on the features and functions of the Collect Edition by adding some of
the most commonly used advanced features. Fulfill addresses the desire for the most
frequently requested enhancements, without requiring customers to buy specialized features
they don't need. Growing businesses will find that the upgrades in the Fulfill package provide
additional functionality for current and future needs.

Optional Module and ToolkitsSince many businesses have specialized needs, Accellos One
Warehouse offers numerous modules/toolkits that can be purchased individually. Accellos
understands that businesses don't want to buy functionality that they will never use or that
they don't have the infrastructure to support. Therefore, the product structure allows you to
pinpoint and purchase only the modules/toolkits you require.
Modules are a standard set of functions that do not require any additional
development to implement.
Toolkits are used by our Professional Services Development Team to build custom
solutions for customers. For example, we have the ability to control carousels and
conveyors, but each site requires some level of customization. The customer would be
required to purchase the Warehouse Automation Toolkit and then a number of days
of custom development at our standard PS rates in order to implement a complete
solution.

GETTING ADDITIONAL INFORMATION


The documentation set is intended to provide a targeted approach information as follows:
Collect and Manage users need documents designated for Collect Edition or have no
designated edition.
Fulfill Users and purchaser of optional modules and toolkits need documents designated
for the Fulfill Edition, the Collect Edition or have no designated edition.
Depending on your role and the products purchased, you may want to reference some of the

SCANNING BARCODES
Many functions require that you enter identification codes for products, bins, shipping
cartons, orders and so on. The easiest way to enter these codes is usually to use the handheld
to scan the barcodes printed in product labels, bin labels, picking/shipping labels, or other
documents.
However, in cases where it may be awkward or inconvenient to scan barcodes, you can also
key in equivalent numerical codes, such as product numbers, shipping container numbers,
order numbers, etc. Usually you need to press ENTER after keying in a number in order for
Accellos One Warehouse to recognize it.

Entering a number on the keypad is equiva-


lent to scanning a barcode.

SELECTING OPTIONS FROM LISTS


In many functions, you are presented with a list of items, such as product numbers, bin
numbers, and so on.

two screens that apply to this list.

To select these items, you can do any of the following:


Press the button for the selected item in the list.
Key-in the number corresponding to the selected item and press ENTER.
Scan the barcode on the label of the relevant bin, product, or carton.
Key in the (alpha-)numeric identifier of the bin, product or carton, and press ENTER.

USING FUNCTION KEYS


Function keys are displayed as buttons on the screen of your handheld. When asked to use a
function key or combination of function keys, you must press the corresponding function key
button(s) on the screen with your finger (or if necessary the stylus).

These are all Function keys.

Some handhelds have function keys labelled F1 through F10, while others use a combination
of keys to enter in the appropriate function.
If you are using a PC hooked up to a keyboard, pressing the function keys on the keyboard
will not perform the corresponding handheld function.
To enter the function from the keyboard, type:
~ (i.e., tilde), then f, then <number>. For example, [F9] is typed ~f9.

ACCEPTING DEFAULT VALUES


In many functions, a default (expected) value is presented in parentheses. When you see this
default, if the value is correct, you can simply press the button or press ENTER to accept it,
rather than having to enter the value itself.

If this value is correct, simply press the button to


accept it (or you can press ENTER).

IDENTIFYING PRODUCTS
When you scan a product barcode, the barcode may contain any of the following information:
the warehouse product number
the vendor part number
the UPC number
the SSCC-14 number
the lot number
the serial number
other product attributes, such as the size, colour, weight of the product
In all handheld functions, when you scan a barcode to identify a product, Accellos One
Warehouse tries to identify the exact product based on the information provided in the
barcode. However, if the barcode does not contain all the information required to precisely
identify the product, there could be an ambiguity; that is, the same barcode number may
apply to multiple products. This could be the case if:
Your products use attributes, such as lot numbers.
Your products have other IDs, such as UPC numbers, supplier codes, or barcode cross-
references, and more than one product number is associated with the same barcode.
In these cases, the system will search for all products that match the barcode you scanned, and
if it finds more than one, a screen will appear, prompting you to identify the exact product you
want.

HANDLING PRODUCTS WITH ATTRIBUTES


If your warehouse handles products with attributes, such as lot or serial numbers, you will be
prompted to identify the attribute number of the product during various handheld functions.
The functions in which you will be prompted for attribute numbers depend on how your
system is configured to track attributes.

NOTE: If your products use more than one attribute, each attribute type may
be configured with a different scenario.

Handling Non-unique Attributes (Lots)


When handling products with non-unique attributes, such as lot numbers, depending on the

list of existing lots, if they have already been recorded in a previous function.

In all functions, except receiving and the Non-PO Receipt type of inbound miscellaneous
adjustments, you must identify a valid, existing lot number. When receiving and adjusting
product in (Non-PO Receipt type only), you also have the option of adding new lot numbers.

Handling Unique Attributes (Serials)


When handling products with unique attributes, such as serial numbers, you will usually be
required to scan the barcode of each item you are handling. The screen indicates how many

Accellos One Warehouse receives the stock that arrives at the warehouse based on
purchase orders that are downloaded from the host accounting system. Purchase orders
may be provided to you in printed form, or may exist electronically in the system. Your
warehouse will probably have a procedure for providing you with the appropriate
documentation if required.

RECEIVING PURCHASE ORDERS BY WAVE


When you receive by purchase order, you receive by wave of purchase orders. Regardless of
whether you are receiving a single purchase order or multiple orders, you must start a wave of
purchase orders before you start checking in products. Multiple receivers can work on the
same wave of purchase orders simultaneously.
The normal process consists of the following steps:
1 Initiate the receipt, by entering the purchase order (s). Procedures for starting a receiving
wave are provided in Starting a Wave of Purchase Orders on page 13.
2 Receive the products. There are several ways to identify the products you are receiving, as
described in Selecting Products in the Wave on page 16.
3 Receive quantities. Products can be received either by units or by case, depending on your
configuration. Receiving quantities is described in Checking-in Products on page 18.
4 Put away products to a temporary or permanent location, as described in Putting Away
Products on page 20.
5 Repeat the process for all products and orders in the wave.
6 If your warehouse policy requires you to close purchase orders when you are finished
receiving them (rather than having the dispatcher close them), close each purchase order
for which you have received products. Procedures for closing POs are provided in Closing
a Purchase Order on page 24.
If you need to stop or restart a wave, you can do so at any time. Another receiver can start a
wave that you started so that there are multiple receivers simultaneously receiving the same
PO. Follow the procedure in Stopping and Restarting a PO on page 24.

UNDERSTANDING MOVING AND PUTAWAY FUNCTIONS


This chapter describes functions you can use in conjunction with receiving or
replenishment, to move inventory within the warehouse. These functions do not actually
affect the inventory count in your warehouse, but simply move products from one in-
warehouse bin to another. Your system may be configured to upload updated bin
locations to the host system; otherwise, the host system may not be notified when any of
these functions are performed.
This chapter describes the following functions:
Looking up the contents of bins. This is a generic function you can use when
managing inventory in the warehouse. It lists the products that are currently stored in
a selected bin, and displays the quantities and statuses of a selected product for all
bins in which it is stored in the warehouse. Described in Looking Up Bin Contents on
page 28.
Finding the location of a serialized product. The Serial Lookup function simply finds
the current location of a serialized product. This would be used, if for example, you
find a serial product that has been misplaced and you need to find its correct location
in the warehouse, or if you have a list of serialized products that you need to locate in
the warehouse. Described in Serial Lookup on page 29.
Moving products inside the warehouse. You can use the Direct Move function at any
time, to put away products that have been received from a receiving area to overstock
or pick bins, or simply to relocate stock in different bins in the warehouse, for any
purpose. Described in Moving Inventory on page 30.
Reserving stock to prevent it from being allocated. You can access the Reserve Stock
function from the Direct Move function. Described in Reserving and Unreserving
Inventory on page 51.

MOVING INVENTORY
A direct move is a transfer of stock from one in-warehouse location to another, either pick bin
or bulk/overstock. The Direct Move function is a generic method of moving stock within the
warehouse, which does not affect the inventory count in the warehouse. In some cases,
Accellos One Warehouse uploads a miscellaneous adjustment to the host system that simply
updates the bin location for the moved product; in other cases, the host system never knows
that products have been moved.
You can use the Direct Move function for various purposes such as putting away received or
returned stock, moving stock from overstock bins to pick bins, or moving stock from any
temporary/staging area to final storage bins in the warehouse. If your system is configured to
allow it, you may also use the direct move to process replenishment requests (for more
information on replenishment, see Understanding Replenishment Functions on page 57).
You can also use the Direct Move function to reserve stock, which prevents it from being
allocated to orders. For information, see Reserving and Unreserving Inventory on page 51.
There are two main ways of moving inventory:

In two steps

In this method, you first move the stock out from a bin to a temporary system location,
TRANSIT. Then, you move the stock in from the TRANSIT location to the desired bin. You
typically use this method when different equipment is required, when you want to search
for the best home for the product, when the out and in bins are situated at a distance from
each other, or when stock needs to be broken down into smaller packsizes.

NOTE: In some warehouses, the system may be configured to only allow you
to move in stock that you yourself have moved out initially. In this case, the
system bin location would display as #YOUR_USERID, instead of TRANSIT.

In one step
You typically use this method when the equipment required to move the stock is the
same, when you already know to where you are moving the product, and when the out
and in bins are situated close to each other.

Moving/Putting Away Inventory
Moving Products Out

For each method, in/out or one-step, you can also move products in two ways:
By single product. In this method, you move a single product at a time.
If you are moving by single serialized product, you can do a serial move to save time. This
means that instead of entering a product number you use the serial number. This is
quicker than entering the product number, because you dont need to enter the bin from
which you are moving the product, nor the quantity to remove. Because serial numbers
are unique per product, Accellos One Warehouse knows the bin that the product is
currently in and that it is single unit; you only have to scan the bin into which the product
will be put if (if not TRANSIT). If the same serial number is used for different products, you
may also have to select the product from a list, but this is still quicker than a regular
product move.

By pallet. In this method, you assemble a pallet-load of multiple products and then drop
the whole pallet of products in the same bin, without having to re-scan all the items on
the pallet.

To move products out from bins to the TRANSIT location, by single product or by pallet of
products, see Moving Products Out on page 31.
To move products in from the TRANSIT location into new bins, by single product, or by pallet of
products, see Moving Products In on page 37.
To move products out from bins and into bins in one step, by single product or by pallet of
product, see Moving Products in One Step on page 45.

Moving Products Out


When you move stock out, there are two methods by which you can move products to the
TRANSIT location:

By product In this method, you add products from different bins to the TRANSIT
location, one product at a time, in the quantity you select. Use this method when you
want to select the products and quantities to be moved. Follow the procedure in Moving
a Single Product Out on page 32.

By pallet In this method, you move the total quantity of all available (unallocated)
products in a single bin to the TRANSIT location. Use this method when you want to
empty multiple products from a single bin. Follow the procedure in Moving Multiple
Products (Pallet Moving) Out on page 36.

Direct Move function. This function is typically used for products that need to be quarantined
or inspected before being made available to regular inventory. When inventory is reserved, it is
prevented from being allocated to sales orders. To reserve stock, follow the procedure in
Reserving Inventory on page 52.
Depending on your configuration, you may or may not be able to direct move reserved stock
from bin to bin. If you are permitted to move reserved stock, the items will remain reserved in
the new bin.

UNDERSTANDING REPLENISHMENT FUNCTIONS


Replenishment is the process of removing stock from overstock bins, breaking the stock
into smaller packsizes, and moving them to pick bins. Unlike Direct Move, replenishment
is always performed in response to a replenishment request that has been issued by the
system. The request is generated by a sales order allocation.

NOTE: Replenishment does not always have to be done from actual carton/
overstock bins or larger packsizes. If inventory exists in pickable bins, you may
be instructed to replenish from pick bins.

Once a replenishment request has been generated, there are a number of ways by which
you can find out which stock should be replenished to which bins:
By following letdown tickets. If your system is configured to print these automatically,
they are printed whenever a replenishment request is issued.
By following a Replenishment Report printed by your dispatcher.
By using the Bin Lookup function. This function can help you to identify products that
are marked HELD FOR REPLENISHMENT and need to be moved to pick bins. For
procedures for looking up bins, see Looking Up Bin Contents on page 28.
Other warehouse policy. Your warehouse may have a policy that establishes a routine
for replenishing stock, without the need for printed letdown tickets.

Then, you fill pick bins with the let down stock. You typically use this method when
different equipment is required, overstock and pick bins are situated at a distance from
each other, or you want to use the stock to fill multiple pick bins.Letting down stock is

the stock immediately to a single final destination. Your warehouse will typically use this
method when the equipment required to move the stock is the same, the overstock and
pick bins are situated close to each other, or you only need to fill a single pick bin. In this
method, you are immediately prompted to fill bins as soon as you have let down the
stock. Letting down product for work orders is normally performed in one step.
By Direct Move
If your system is configured to allow it, you can use the Direct Move function to process
replenishment requests. For procedures for direct moving, see Moving Inventory on page
30.

REPLENISHING IN TWO STEPS

Letting Down Stock


Letting down stock with the Letdown Stock function is the first step to replenishing the stock
in a pick bin (or the only step, if you are using one-step replenishment). Replenishment
requests indicate which products need to be let down.
If your dispatcher has assigned replenishment requests to groups during allocation, according
to particular criteria, such as the customer for orders, the date required for orders, and so on,
you can select the replenishment groups you want to fulfill. You may even be assigned to
specific groups, or you may be required to select groups in a particular sequence. Then the
replenishment function takes you sequentially through overstock bins in your warehouse for
which replenishment requests have been issued starting from the first bin you specify
according to the replenishment group you want to process.
Otherwise, if replenishment groups are not assigned, you select the first bin from which you
want the system to search for a replenishment request.
Once you have removed the appropriate stock from the bins, you are instructed how to break
it down into smaller packsizes.

Tip: In most situations, you should remove more product from the overstock bins
than required for the specific replenishment request. This will reduce the future
number of replenishment requests for the product.

ABOUT PICKING AND PACKING SALES ORDERS


Picking is the act of removing products from bins. Packing is the act of putting these products into
cartons or totes for shipping. Depending on the picking styles used in the warehouse, picking and
packing are often done simultaneously.
In a Accellos One Warehouse, you rarely pick one order at a time; instead, you pick orders in
waves, or groups of orders. The system finds the most efficient way for you to collect all the
products you need for all the orders in the wave, so you walk through the warehouse only once,
and never need to return to the same bin twice.
Although a number of different picking styles are available in Accellos One Warehouse (see
Understanding Picking Methods on page 68), the picking process essentially consists of the same
steps, with the exception of one-scan picking, which is an abbreviated process.
The overall picking process would include the following steps (expect for one-scan picking):
1 Enter a range of bins where you will do your picking (or all bins in the warehouse).
2 Identify a wave of sales orders which you want to pick. There are various methods by which
you can create, start or restart a wave of sales orders; all are described in Starting a Wave of
Sales Orders on page 72.
3 Select a picking mode, go to the bin to which the system directs you (if the selected mode
does so), and pick the product required for the orders in your wave. Selecting a picking mode
and picking products are described in Picking Orders on page 77.
4 Repeat the process until your wave is complete.
The actual steps you follow in picking may vary from warehouse to warehouse. Furthermore, your
warehouse will have a policy regarding how warehouse staff deals with:
Over-picking (picking a quantity greater than the quantity required for the order)
Short-picking (picking less that the quantity required)
Skipping picks
The different bin ranges in which different pickers may work.
Who actually does the picking based on assigned work.

ACCELLOS ONE WAREHOUSE HANDHELD FUNCTIONS 67


Picking and Packing Orders
About Picking and Packing Sales Orders

Understanding Picking Methods


When a wave of sales orders is created, Accellos One Warehouse generates a picking path, or
route, through the warehouse. By default, the pick path follows the sequence of bins from
lowest bin number to highest number. In this way, you only need to visit a single bin once and
collect as much product as is required from each bin to fulfill all the orders in the wave.
In the most common method of picking, known as regular/wave picking, you are directed to
each bin in sequence, and told the product, packsize and quantity to pick. You pick the
required product, and scan its barcode label. You are then told the carton number into which to
pack the product. You place the items into this carton, and scan the picking/shipping label for
that carton. Finally, you enter the quantity of product you picked. You are then directed to the
next pick, and the process is repeated, until you have picked and packed all orders in your
wave.
Although Accellos One Warehouse supports other styles of picking, including Batch Picking,
Product Picking, Supermarket Picking and One-scan Picking as described in the sections that
follow. Note, however, that these other styles are variations of this basic process, and only
really differ from the default wave picking style, in the following parameters:
The number of steps, and the sequence in which they are performed.
The sequence of picks in the wave (forward or reverse).
The number of different people who are involved in picking a single order.

NOTE: In all picking styles, more than one picker cannot pick the same
product from the same bin at the same time. This also applies to product
picking (see below), in which all products are in the BATCHPCK location.

Batch Picking
This method allows you to collect all the products required in a wave before packing them into
cartons. For each pick, you are guided to the pick bin, and told the product and quantity to
pick, but not the cartons into which to pack the items. Instead, you place the products onto a
cart or into totes, and bring them to a sorting area, where you then pack them into cartons for
the appropriate orders.
This method of picking is particularly well suited to a warehouse layout that is not conducive
to bringing cartons through aisles of pick bins. It is also an efficient way to pick a large number
of orders (each with a few lines), as it lets you split the picking and packing functions between
two people.
To pick by batch, after starting a wave, you simply select the Batch Picking mode from within
the Picking function. For details, see Picking Orders by Batch on page 81. Once you have
picked the items, you or another picker have the option of packing the items by product (see
Product Picking below), by order (see Reverse Picking on page 70), or in the same sequence
in which the products were pulled off the shelves.

68 HANDHELD FUNCTIONS ACCELLOS ONE WAREHOUSE


Picking and Packing Orders
Understanding Picking Methods

Product Picking
This method is typically (although not required to be) used in conjunction with batch picking,
as it allows you to select the products you want to pick, usually from a previously-picked
collection of items, and pack them in the sequence that you choose, rather than in the
sequence of bins. In this method, you identify the product to pack, and the system prompts
you with the quantities and cartons required for each order in the wave.
Again, this method is typically used in warehouses where it is not feasible to bring cartons
through aisles, or in which it is more efficient to split up picking and packing functions
between two or more people. It can also used to allow experienced pickers to pack orders
correctly the first time (for example, by packing the largest items at the bottom of the cartons,
etc.) without having to re-pack them later.
To pick by product, you typically restart a wave that has already been batch picked (for
information, see Stopping and Restarting a Pick or Wave on page 76), and then simply select
the Product Picking mode from within the Picking function. For details, see Picking Orders by
Product on page 82.

Scanner picking
This method, also referred to as supermarket picking, is similar to product picking, but requires
that you scan each product unit before packing it and picking the next product.
This method is typically (although not required to be) used in conjunction with batch picking,
as it allows you to select the products you want to pick, usually from a previously-picked
collection of items, and scan each product/packsize (quantity of one unit per scan) as you put
them in the carton. This is similar to a supermarket check-out line, where each individual
product in the order is scanned separately.
To scanner pick, you might typically use a procedure whereby you restart a wave that has
already been batch picked (for information, see Stopping and Restarting a Pick or Wave on
page 76). Then, select the Scanner Picking mode from within the Picking function. For details,
see Picking Orders by Scanning Each Unit on page 85.

One-scan Picking
This method allows you to pick items directly into a single carton or multiple cartons and
simply scan a single carton, without scanning or entering any other information. This is an
extreme picking style that is only used in rare situations, such as rush periods where picking
speed is more important than accuracy. One-scan picking is described in Picking Orders in
One Scan on page 90.

About Picking and Packing Sales Orders

Multiple Pickers Picking a Single Sales Order


By entering ranges of bins, orders can be split up between several pickers, and picked either
sequentially or simultaneously. This can be useful in large-volume orders or when you have
designated pickers to work in specific areas of the warehouse.

Picking sequentiallyOne picker picks all the products in one area of the warehouse
(defined by the bin range entered), and hands off the rest of the wave to the next picker in
another area of the warehouse. This method divides up aisles of bins so that individual
pickers only work in a specified number of aisles. They can pick each aisle sequentially, or
if they want to pick simultaneously, can start at opposite ends of an area and meet in the
middle (see Reverse Picking on page 70).
If you are sequential pick, you typically restart a wave that has already been started in
another area (for information, see Stopping and Restarting a Pick or Wave on page 76),
and pick your area, until all the products in all the orders are picked. You can use any
number of picking modes, such as regular, batch, or product picking.

Picking simultaneouslyPickers in different areas of the warehouse (defined by the bin


range entered) work on the same order at the same time. The cartons are then
consolidated and re-packed when areas have been completed. Simultaneous picking can
prevent the problem of slowdowns in picking because of hold-ups in a particular area or
in the packing area.
To pick simultaneously, specify only the area in which you will pick orders, as described in
Starting the Picking Process on page 71. You can use any number of picking modes, such
as regular, batch, or product picking.

Reverse Picking
Picking in reverse is also not really a style of picking, but a variation in the sequencing of the
wave. That is, rather than proceeding in bin sequence from lowest to highest highest bin, the
system guides you to picks highest bin to lowest bin. This mode is typically used to have two
pickers simultaneously pick a single wave: one picker uses forward picking to start at the
lowest bin, while the other picker uses reverse picking to start at the highest bin. The two
meet in the middle when they are finished.
To pick in reverse, you typically restart a wave that has been started by a forward picker (for
information, see Stopping and Restarting a Pick or Wave on page 76), and then simply select
the Reverse Picking mode from within the Picking function. For details, see Understanding
and Selecting Picking Modes on page 78. Again, you can combine this mode with any other
technique, including regular wave picking, and batch picking.

STARTING A WAVE OF SALES ORDERS


To begin wave picking orders, you must first identify the wave you want to pick. Even if you
are picking a single order, it still must be part of a wave before you can pick it. There are two
ways to start a wave:
If orders have already been waved out by a dispatcher (or automatically when allocated, if
your system is configured to do so), you can scan the picking/shipping labels for the
orders that are unassigned or have been assigned to you. Follow the instructions in
Starting a Dispatcher or System-Waved Wave on page 72.
If orders have not been waved out by a dispatcher, you can create the wave from orders
that are ready to wave. To use this method, follow the instructions in Creating a Wave
from the Handheld on page 74.

Starting a Dispatcher or System-Waved Wave


You can start an already-created wave by scanning the picking/shipping label of a carton in
each order in the wave. In this way you are actually re-creating your wave by specifying the
orders you actually want to pick now. To use this method, follow the procedure in Starting a
Wave by Scanning Picking/Shipping Labels below.
To begin a wave from an already-waved out set of orders, you should have collected picking/
shipping labels for the orders, as you will need to scan the barcode number on the labels to
identify the orders and/or cartons to the system.

Creating a Wave from the Handheld


You can only create a wave of orders from the handheld if no one else has waved out the
orders. For each order you add to your wave, a picking/shipping label is automatically printed.
You can create a wave in three ways:
By scanning or entering a packslip, or sales order, number. To do so, you will need printed
order information, such as a pre-packslip label.
By selecting the next available order from the system. Normally, you must select orders in
a predetermined sequence, based on the priority, date and time required, and other
criteria specified in the order itself.
By selecting an order number from a list of sales orders specifically assigned to you.

NOTE: If you are using simultaneous picking, you should not use the handheld to
create waves of orders unless you are the first picker to work with the orders.

> To create a wave of sales orders:

1 From the Wave Information screen, add an order to the wave, by doing one of the
following:
At the F2-START prompt, scan or enter the packslip (sales order) number of the order
you want to add, and press ENTER.
To select the highest priority ready to wave order from the system, press ENTER or [F4].
To select one of the sales orders that have been assigned specifically to you, at the F2-
START prompt, press [F5]. A list of sales orders in Ready to Wave status that are
assigned to you displays.

HANDLING PICKS YOU CANNOT FULFILL


Occasionally, you may be sent to a pick which you cannot perform. While the system ensures
that each order is not released unless there is enough stock in the warehouse to fill it, you will
occasionally arrive at a bin that does not contain enough products to fill your order. This can
happen if someone has moved the product without recording it in Accellos One Warehouse,
the product has been damaged, or the dispatcher has allocated the order by assuming 100%
stock. In other cases, the product may simply be difficult to reach or lift, may require special
equipment to remove it, or even other personnel to assist with it.
In many warehouses, situations where inventory is short must be handled manually; that is,
you must notify a dispatcher or supervisor, who will take an appropriate action, such as
suspending the order, contacting the customer for alternative instructions, and so on.
However, in other warehouses, your system may be configured to allow you to handle these
situations automatically by:
Skipping a pick
Skipping a pick allows you to temporarily skip a pick and return to it later. This feature is
useful if the product is available, but not easily accessible for the time being, and you need
to wait for assistance in picking it. You can also skip a pick in order to look for stock
elsewhere in the warehouse and move it to the appropriate bin for picking later.(See
Moving/Putting Away Inventory on page 27 for various ways of finding and moving
product from other bins.) When you skip a pick, however, you are still required to fulfill
the pick later, in order to complete the wave. To skip a pick, see the instructions in
Skipping a Pick on page 88.
Shorting a pick
Shorting a pick lets you ship an order with only partial quantities of products instead of
putting the entire order on hold because a certain product is not available. You can either
short an entire line, or you can short the quantity that is missing. Your system may be
configured to automatically issue a back order for the products that are missing. To short a
pick, see the instructions in Shorting a Pick on page 88.

Once an order has been packed into a carton, you can move part, or all, of its contents
into a different carton, or into additional cartons, before shipping it. This process is called
repacking.
You might want to repack a carton if it was overstuffed, poorly packed, or damaged

In your Accellos One Warehouse configuration, label printers are numbered from 1 to 24; laser
printers are numbered from 0 to 9. However, the physical printers on which labels and paper
documents are printed are determined by Accellos One Warehouse logical printers. The
following table lists Accellos One Warehouses logical printers and indicates the labels that
each printer handles. .

The logical printers are assigned to default physical printers globally by your system
configuration. In addition, the global settings may also be overridden by user IDs; that is, your
user ID may be configured to specify different mappings for logical printers, and every time
you log on to Accellos One Warehouse, your user ID settings determines the physical printer
to which print jobs are sent.
However, you can also change the physical printers on which the labels or files are to be
printed, on-the-fly, from the handheld. If you are in a different area of the warehouse, and not
near the printer from which you usually collect print jobs, you can use the Print Redirect
function to redirect logical printers to the physical printer you want. You can redirect printers
for labels that are printed automatically, as well as labels that you request yourself. For more

UNDERSTANDING INVENTORY COUNTING FUNCTIONS


Once your warehouse is in production, discrepancies between the inventory reported
by the system and the actual inventory stored in the warehouse can occur because of
unreported damage to products, unrecorded changes in the system, theft of product,
or procedural errors. For this reason, you need to physically verify inventory on a
cyclical basis.
You can perform two types of counts:
Cycle counting A routine procedure that you use to count a limited amount of
stock. Cycle counting can be performed at any time, concurrently with all other
warehouse operations. You can also use cycle counting to add or remove stock
from bins. To perform a cycle count, follow any of the procedures in Performing a
Cycle Count on page 117.
Full stock counting A wall-to-wall count of the entire inventory in the
warehouse. Your company may perform a full stock count once when you first set
up Accellos One Warehouse, or on a regular interval, such as annually. Full stock
counting requires that the entire system be shut down, and is therefore usually
only performed outside of regular warehouse operations. Stock counting with the
RF handhelds is performed in conjunction with the Inventory Count Wizard,
which is run by a manager on the Accellos One Warehouse Console. To perform a
full stock first count or recount, follow the procedures provided in Performing a
Full Stock Count on page 121.

NOTE: You cannot use any of the cycle counting functions to add products
that have a new non-unique attribute (e.g. a new lot number). That is, if the
system does not already recognize the non-unique attribute (lot number) it
cant be added using the cycle counting functions. Instead, you need to use the
Receiving or the Non-PO Miscellaneous Adjustments function to add the new
non-unique attribute.

PERFORMING A CYCLE COUNT


You initiate a cycle count by selecting one of the following cycle counting methods:
Directed Cycle Count
This method directs cycle counters through bins that have been marked for counting
by the system. Directed cycle counts are generated by the dispatcher who enters the
number of count days in a Scheduling Tool in Web Dispatch, and the system marks
the appropriate number of bins for counting each day.
Bins can be also be automatically marked for counting in the following situations:
When a picker shorts a line, which may indicate an inventory discrepancy, so the
bin will be marked for counting.
If a picker indicates a bin the system thinks is empty is not really empty, the bin
will be marked for counting.
Follow the procedure in Directed Cycle Counting on page 117.
Cycle Count By Bin
This method allows you to select the first bin to count, and then moves to the next bin
according to bin sequence. You generally use this method to count the same bins over
and over again in the same area of your warehouse (for example, those that contain
fast moving products), or to allow multiple counters to cycle count in different aisles
so they do not overlap. Follow the procedure in Cycle Counting by Bin on page 119.
Cycle Count By Product
This method counts all the bins containing a specific product. You can use this
method when you want to verify quantities and locations of a single product. Follow
the procedure in Cycle Counting by Product on page 120.

COUNTING PRODUCTS IN A BIN


Once you have selected the method of counting bins, you also have two modes of counting
the products stored in those bins:
By quantity This is the default mode, in which you scan or enter a product once, count
the packs, and enter the quantity you counted. Steps for counting by quantity are
provided in Counting by Quantity on page 125.
By each In this mode, you are never prompted to enter a count. Instead, you scan or
enter each pack of a product, and the quantity is increased by one for each scan. This
method is useful when units of the same product are not grouped together in the bin and
it is easier to count each product individually rather than trying to count a set of items at
the same time and then entering a quantity. Steps for counting by quantity are provided
in Counting by Each on page 127.
You can toggle back and forth between Count by Quantity and Count by Each modes by
pressing [F5].
In addition, if you have the appropriate permission, you can display a list of expected products
for each bin, from which you can view (and select) the products to count, as well as toggling
between Count by Quantity and Count by Each modes. This may be useful when you want to
see what additional products the system expects, when you believe you have finished
counting a bin.
You can also interrupt and restart a count at any time. You will need to do so if multiple
counters are counting the same bin. For procedures, see Stopping and Restarting a Count on
page 131.

NOTE: For warehouses that use single homes, this condition imposes
restrictions on the products you can count into bins. If your warehouse stores
products using single homes, you cannot count a product into a pick bin if it is
already stored in another one.

If more than one product matches the barcode you scanned (including products with
lot numbers), you are prompted to select the correct product. To select the product,
follow any of the steps described in Identifying Products on page 7.
If the system does not expect to find the product in the bin, or if the product can be
stored in the bin in more than one packsize, you are prompted to select a packsize for
the product you entered.

Otherwise, if the system expects to find the product there, and the product is only
stored in one packsize continue to the next step (step 3).

not complete it. When the last count is done, that counter can then complete the count, as
described in Completing a Count on page 129
To stop a count, see the procedure in Stopping a Count on page 131. To restart a non-
completed count, see the procedure in Restarting a Count on page 132.
