Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR NIL PICK HANDLING AT A WAREHOUSE
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE GESTION DE PRÉLÈVEMENT NUL AU NIVEAU D'UN ENTREPÔT
Abstract:
(EN) Upon the occurrence of the nil pick, an amount of product that is available in the warehouse is determined as is a demand of the product from the replenishment settings. When the amount of product is sufficient to partially satisfy the demand, first instructions are transmitted to the warehouse instructing the warehouse to send selected amounts of the product to selected retail stores. When the amount of product is insufficient to satisfy any of the demand, a message is sent to a secondary supplier instructing the secondary supplier to ship products to the warehouse. Instructions are transmitted to the warehouse to perform a verification of an accuracy of the replenishment settings.
(FR) L'invention concerne, lors de l'apparition du prélèvement nul, une quantité de produit étant disponible dans l'entrepôt déterminée comme étant une demande du produit à partir des paramètres de réapprovisionnement. Lorsque la quantité de produit est suffisante pour satisfaire partiellement la demande, des premières instructions sont transmises à l'entrepôt donnant l'instruction à l'entrepôt d'envoyer des quantités sélectionnées du produit à des magasins de vente au détail sélectionnés. Lorsque la quantité de produit est insuffisante pour satisfaire l'une quelconque de la demande, un message est envoyé à un fournisseur secondaire ordonnant au fournisseur secondaire d'expédier des produits à l'entrepôt. Des instructions sont transmises à l'entrepôt pour effectuer une vérification d'une précision des paramètres de réapprovisionnement.
