Symptoms

Currently when performing license plate swapping, the lot expiration date must be the same for the two license plates that are being swapped.  This enhancement is to allow for a range of both lot expiration dates and a range of lot locations.   

Business Case:

The client processes lot controlled items.  The client's manufacturing process is a mixture of process and batch where the product lot number changes a maximum of every 2 hours.  Expiration dates for the product produced in (2) 8 hr shiftss remains the same.  Thus there is a minimum of 8 different lot numbers created daily - each lot number for the day has the same expiration date. The average is 14-16 unique lot number being created.
   
The Warehouse has very long rows of pallets of product stacked up to four high with row access only from one end.  Physical space constraints within the warehouse dictates that the same items with different expiration dates MUST be stored in the same row.  A range of exipration dates (within a week or 10 days) are currently allowed to be swapped.  Rather than pull out 50+/- Pallets from the row that's only accessable from one end, the swapping with a range of expiration dates to be picked/shipped is allowed.  After picking the speciic row, it is frozen from putaway, which allows the pallets with expiration dates sooner to be picked for subsequent orders.
