Customer has the following requirements and wants to know how to address them. Other customers may have similar requirements; this note is to provide information on these to Support and other customers.

1. They use Dispensing, and in Dispensing they have a lower and an upper tolerance.
When doing Picking, the system picks based on the Planned Qty.
When that qty is moved, the planned qty gets reserved to the batch.
They then do dispensing, but they are not able to dispense up to the upper tolerance because dispensing does not allow dispense of more than the reserved qty. So if the lower tolerance is zero, then there is no usable tolerance at all, because they cannot dispense less than planned qty and they cannot dispense more than planned qty.

They have tried using Scrap Factor or picking more than requested, but what they really want is for the system to automatically do the picking and then the reservation for a specified percentage over the planned qty, based on the over tolerance set in Dispensing.

Is there a way to set this in WMS picking rules?

2. Sometimes the planned qty is, for example, 105, and that is what is passed to picking. But the item comes in 250 kg bags, so the warehouse actually sends 250 kg. That full 250 gets reserved to the batch, making the extra 145 unavailable to other batches. They want some way for only the planned qty, or the planned qty plus tolerance mentioned in requirement 1, to be reserved to the batch.

3. They want Bulk Picking, as described in note 757005.1, "Bulk Picking Doesn't Work For OPM Batch Picking for Lot and non controlled Items", and ER bug 7598427 and ER bug 8217869 to be supported.
