10 What happens when an item is picked? Inventory in the shelf/stocking location is lower (via an Inter Warehouse Transfer [TW] transaction) Item is moved to a staging location and reserved for that Customer Order

11 Can multiple Employees pick the same order? YES, multiple Employees can sign on to the same pick list to pick/stage the order However, there cannot be multiple Employees working on the same item on the same pick list

12 How does the employee know what item to pick? It depends on how youve configured the PPS system (through Control File settings): Guided Picking: RF gun shows next item on the pick list to be picked Non-Guided Picking: Employee uses printed Pick List or RF Gun inquiry to see next item to be picked

13 What if an item has batch/lot or serial number? If an item is flagged (in the Item Master/Revision record) for Batch/Lot control then both the location and the Batch/Lot number must be scanned/entered with the location If an item is flagged (in the Item Master/Revision record) for Serial Number then, depending on the Control File, a serial number for each item pick can be entered –RF PPS will check to verify that this serial number for this item has never been shipped before

14 What if the item is a Kit? XA will create 2 pick lists: one for the Kit Item and a second one for the components of the kit RF PPS will see the item on the first pick list is a kit, retrieve the second pick list to allow the employee to pick the Kit Components and then return to the original Pick List

15 How do I ship the order? If using the UPS/Fed Ex/DHL interfaces, after the order is staged, a PPS program will send the pick to the XA Offline Ship files to be shipped If not using interfaces, new PPS Office screen is used to ship picked orders sending the shipment to XA Offline Ship files –Why Offline Ship? Because Mapics XA programs are being used to update the database and create the invoices

16 How is the licensing for this product structured? Paperless Pick/Pack/Ship is licensed by the total number of pickers using the solution Less than 3 pickers - $16, % annual support 3 to 10 pickers - $26, % annual support 10+ pickers - $39, % annual support
