Symptoms

Customers want to use random replenishment with the following scenarios:

1. Random replenishment to an existing picking location if it exists, otherwise to an an empty location.
2. Random replenishment to an existing picking location with the same lot as is replenished with, otherwise to an empty location.
3. Random replenishment to an empty location.

Currently, for random replenishment only method code R can be used. No replenishment happens while using method code X.

Random replenishment now seems to first do the put-away phase, followed by the pick phase. Changing the sequence and doing the pick phase before the put away phase (with full put away functionality) would make sure the lot number of the replenishment stock is known at the moment the put away phase is run.

This would make it possible to take into account if mixing of lots is allowed. So replenish to the current picking location when the lot number of the replenishment stock is the same as the current stock on the picking location. Replenish to another location when the lot number of the replenishment stock is not the same as the stock on the picking location.

The end effect would be to change picking locations on a lot change, and have a "fixed picking location" as long as the lot number doesn't change.

Compared to the use of fixed picking location this is very helpful for track&trace as it is not necessary to allow mixing of lots on the fixed picking location. Effectively fixed picking locations and strict track&trace can't be done at the same time. Compared to pure random locations this is very useful to reduce the number of spare picking locations needed to make random picking locations possible. Effectively making it possible to use random picking locations in space constrained environments.
