The activities associated with locating, collecting, transferring and grouping products for orders in preparation of transportation. This may include scheduling picks, issuing pick instructions, picking the product in sequence of consumption or issuance and recording the completion of the pick process.
This is an Engineer-to-Order process, the products are staged or stored with reference to the order and need to be picked accordingly. Linking a specific product, its lot number or its serial number to the order takes place upstream from the Pick process.
- Picking Sales Order Stock
- Preparing a project installation
- Picking custom-made products
Handling Engineer-to-Order products may require additional instructions. For Make-to-Stock, Make-To-Order and Reverse Logistics processes such instructions are generally not required as these are standard and picking staff has been trained on these standards.
