Purpose
Questions and Answers
 Putaway
 Question 1:  How can you set up an item to be directed to the same putaway location every time it is received from the supplier?
 Question 2:  Is there a way to prevent split putaway suggestions?
 Question 3:  Is there a way to create a putaway request for an item being transferred from one location to another without creating a transfer order (ST/OT)?
 Pick
 Question 1:  You want to soft commit inventory when processing pick requests (P46171) instead of hard committing to a specific location.
 Question 2:  EnterpriseOne (E1) has bulk picking functionality via the R46200 - Create Bulk Pick Requests program.  Does similar functionality exist in World software?
 Question 3:  How do you stop the system from cancelling the original sales order line at last/next status 983/999?
 Question 4:  How does error 3488 - Location Detail Not Found occur and how may it be cleaned up?
 Question 5:  Can orders be made to not commit to locations where inventory is not yet available?
 Question 6:  When multiple lot numbers in the same location have the same expiration date, which lot number does the Process Pick Request program (P46171) suggest?
 Question 7: Can you set up Pick Instructions (P46095) so resulting pick suggestions are generated in the sales order transaction UOM only?
 Question 8:  Can you direct the system to pick a product from a specific location when that product is sold to a particular customer?
 Replenishment
 Question 1:  When running Batch Replenishment (P461601), there is a processing option for order group. Does the value need to be identified in the Order Group program (P46092), or only the Process Selection screen (P46093)?
 Question 2:  In Advanced Warehousing, can the system can do automatic replenishment for random picking locations?
 Question 3:  The R46475 - Replenishment Audit Report shows the system is searching every location, not only the Locations that are in the Replenishment zone related to the Picking Zone.  Is this correct or should it only search locations that are associated to the replenishment zone?
 Question 4:  How are F4602 - Location Detail Information fields (IFTQTY, IFQTRI, IFQTRO,IFHCOM) updated during the replenishment process, (both manual & batch replenishment)?
 All/Miscellaneous
 Question 1:  Can Warehousing Locations be deleted and how will this affect data in the system?
 Question 2:  When are commitments created and relieved and when is on-hand quantity affected in the Advanced Warehouse Management system?
 Question 3:  What is the difference between Pack Confirmation and Confirm Shipments? Both programs are the P4205
 Question 4:  How can discrepancies between available quantities in the F41021 (Item Location records) and the corresponding F4602 (Location Detail records) be corrected?
 Question 5:  When the unit of measure definitions are set up by group or by item in Item/Unit of Measure Profile Revisions (P46011), what is the difference between capacity method (DMTH) 1 and 2?
 Question 6:  How can expired lots be written off the system and still keep the F4602 and the F41021 in sync? Can the P4114, P4112 Adjustments and Issues program be used?
 Question 7:  Is there functionality in the World software that accommodates the consolidation of shipped orders to save on freight costs?
 Question 8:  What are the required setup changes if changing items from two-phase to one-phase processing (putaway, picking, or replenishment)?
 Question 9:  When entering pallet dimensions in the Warehouse Management System, do we include pallet height and/or the standard lift-off dimension (vertical space required to lift the pallet off the floor) or does the system add these amounts automatically?  If this information needs to be set up, where is it entered?
 Question 10: Are there any special considerations for Upgrading World A9.2 world Warehouse Management module (system code 46) to EnterpriseOne (E1) any different than any of our other modules? 
 Question 11: Can a lot be shipped a specific number of days prior to the lot expiration date for a customer?
 Question 12: In the Warehouse Management system, can a physical inventory be run and then a Build Location Master (P41820) on each of two halves of the warehouse in turn -- on successive weekends, with no open requests, suggestions or other activity?  Are there any pitfalls in doing this?
 Question 13: You get multiple trips for the same task for the same item, location and lot on the same order.  If a document is generated, you customer cannot understand or use it. Is there a way to condense the Location Detail file (F4602)?
 Question 14: What enhancement functionality has been added to the Warehousing System in Releases A8.1 and higher?
 Question 15: Why does the system search all Fix Picking Locations and display the message '3636 Same From and To Location?
 Question 16: Can you set up the system to look for Fixed Locations first and if all the space is used up have it search for Random Locations?
 Question 17: Is there a template for the custom program that can be designated in the fold area of the Process Selection video (P46093)?
 Question 18:  How can a hard stop be put on any program that triggers the new creation of F4602 (LDSQ) sequence records? And what are those programs?
 Question 19:  Why does the P46171 Suggestion program not align the F4611 Suggestion File values in the field TRIP (R2RQSQ) with the Warehouse Suggestions file F4600 field Request Sequence Number (R1RQSQ) values? 
 Question 20: How are multiple Location Detail Sequences created (LDSQ) in the F4602 - Location Detail Information for the same item/location? Can they be cleaned up?
