Understanting delivery quantity and picked quantity in VL03N
This must be a very obvious question for most of you but please help me
understand the difference between two columns in VL03N - delivery and picked quantity.
We have implemented WMS.
Here's my example:
1. One outbound delivery with one delivery item.
delivery quantity = 100 pieces
2. Warehouseman using mobile device confirms 40 pieces of material (batch A)
3. Warehouseman does not confirm the remaining 60 pieces from batch B
4. Now when I display delivery item in VL03N I have the following situation
(item level, batch level is disabled)
Delivery qty = 100 pieces
Picked qty = 60 pieces
First question: Why picked qty = 60 instead of 40. The warehouse confirmed
40 pieces of material so picked qty should be 40. But for some reason it
shows unpicked quantity.
When I click "+" (for batch split)
BATCH A: delivery qty = 40, picked quantity = 40, picking status = "C", WM status = "C"
BATCH empty: delivery qty = 60, picked quantity = 60, picking status = "C", WM status = "B"
Second question: why column "picked quantity" for empty batch (not confirmed yet)
displays 60 pieces. The remaining 60 pieces has not been confirmed yet.
I think this is an error because normally, you would not part pick. Normally you would change your delivery quantity to 40, pick it and assign it a batch.
It seems to me that what happened here, is that, picking was done with batch split, but the second lien was done incorrectly. Please note that you say that the 2nd line shows picked quantity 60 and picking status C = Complete.
This shows that picking was done.
I would suggest reversing what was done and follow the standard process.
