2. Zone Config
1. System Config
This is an internal setting required by the system. This will never need changing.
A Yes setting for this feature allows orders to be allocated and processed even if there is not enough inventory to completely fill the order. The system does not support any backordering so it is the responsibility of the host system to resend any shorted items.
The system allows a choice of one of four methods for order allocation: LeastQty: from the location with the least quantity, ExpDate: from the location with the earliest expiration date, ReceiptDate: from the location with earliest receipt date (FIFO), Beltzian: from a location chosen to balance total picks across all carousels.
This setting selects when allocation is performed. There is a choice of three times: Download: when the order is downloaded, Zone when the workstation (zone) operator requests it, or Supervisor: when a supervisor requests it.
If checked, all flow rack picks are sorted to be completed before carousel picks (in a single zone).
This setting specifies the number of Batch Pick Light positions, which also limits the number of orders per batch to this number.
If True, bulk locations are deleted when they are emptied.
If True, a hot pick document (or traveler) is printed after each hot pick. This document prints on a page printer.
If True, no cycle count is created in response to a short pick. The default is that a short pick triggers the queuing of a cycle count for the location.
If True, the Recount button in the Review Cycle Counts screen is disabled. The default is to have the button enabled.
If True, the Yes/No Option? will be enabled when True, Cycle Counts will be generated when a Order or Hot Pick drives a location QOH to zero.
If Yes/No Option? is True, operator will be prompted if location is empty. If No is selected, Cycle Count is created. If Yes is selected, QOH is zero and if a non-dedicated location, the part will be unassigned from that location.
If True, receipts are stocked to the secondary zone. If False, the primary zone is filled to the max zone quantity before stocking the secondary zone.
This setting affects tote processing throughout the system. Once set during install, it should not be changed.
This setting affects bulk picking throughout the system. Once set during install, it should not be changed.
If this option is set to true, all imports will be defaulted to delete the table prior to the import. This option may be overridden at import time.
If this option is set to true, all import files will be deleted after they are imported. If it is set to false, the file will be moved to the archive folder.
This setting should be set to yes if the import files will be in a comma-delimited format.
If True, additional options will be available in the bottom right hand corner of the Browse.
When an order type is checked, the Purge Completed Orders Utility will only purge Completed orders of that type when each order has been uploaded. If the flag is not checked, orders of that order type will purged when each order is Completed.
If the Retain Completed Orders for Upload flag is false, the Purge Completed Orders Utility will purge all order types when they are Completed.
The time at which an autopurge program should be scheduled to run
This setting allows the system administrator to retain logging records for a specified number of days. The Allocation Log, Expected Log, CycleCount Log, Location Detail Log & Order Detail Log records will be deleted. This functionality is in conjunction with a SQL purge job which is typically set up by Dovetree.
This setting allows the system administrator to retain order data (order header and order detail) for a specified number of days. This functionality is in conjunction with a SQL purge job which is typically set up by Dovetree. This automated functionality will mimic the Purge Completed Orders Utility.
When True, a location string is interpreted as having 3 digits to designate the bin. The default value for this is 2 digits.
2. Zone Config
This turns the pick label printing on and off
This turns the order or tote label printing on or off
For future feature
This turns the printing of a tote contents report at end of the batch on or off
This turns on or off the printing of a report of all picks from a zone
This turns the two-step task complete on or off. This means operator must task complete after the pick from the carousel and again when item is placed in the order tote.
Turning pick commonality off (True value in the browse) means operator will have to pick common parts from the same location multiple times. When pick commonality is not disabled (False value in the browse), the operator will pick the combined total from the carousel for disbursement into separate order totes.
This allows operator to skip picks (Shift F7) at the workstations.
This allows pass/done notification to not be displayed.
This enables an operator to change location quantity at the zone during picking or stocking.
This turns the stock label printing on and off
This turns the scale feature on and off
Restrict pick quantity to be no more than the allocated quantity.
Allows Single Line Picks to be scanned directly to a Tote during the pick presentation.
When True, Supervisor and Short Pick created Cycle counts will auto apply and the Review Cycle Counts program will not be needed to apply (and upload) the counts.
This set of check boxes specifies which validation options to use for pick, stock, and cycle count operations in each zone. If a box is checked, location or part must be scanned to confirm the operation. This is currently implemented in carousel picking, RF picking and putaway as well as RF cycle counting.
