1. On mobile did Misc. Receipt of item AS54888 into sub/locator FGI/1.1.1 and packed into LPN446A. Quantity is 4.
2. Performed LPN split of qty 1 from LPN446A into LPN447A.
3. Performed Consolidate LPN, using parent as LPN446A, Next LPN as LPN447A.
4. Performed another Consolidate LPN, using parent as LPN447A, Next LPN as
