Pick Items

The warehouse activity of picking items before they are shipped or consumed is performed in different ways, depending on how warehouse management features are configured. The setup complexity can rank from no warehouse features, through basic warehousing for order-by-order handling in one or more activities only, to advanced configurations where all warehouse activities must be performed in a directed workflow.

The following table describes a sequence of tasks, with links to the topics that describe them. These tasks are listed in the order in which they are generally performed.
