Warehouse execution workloads now provide expanded out-of-the-box capabilities for running scale units as part of a distributed hybrid topology.

Feature details

With warehouse execution workloads running on a scale unit, companies can increase the reliability of mission-critical warehouse processes. Improvements added for this release further enhance the capabilities of these workloads to fulfill organizations' growing requirements.

The warehouse execution workload for scale units now adds the following out-of-the-box capabilities:

  • Wave processing functionality that creates all work for a wave now runs entirely within the scale unit.
  • Exception handling is available within the scale unit, and users benefit from local processing such as the ability to reduce load line quantities after a short pick.
  • Scale units can now generate local outbound shipment confirmations, including advanced shipment notices (ASNs).
  • Purchase order item and line receiving with Mixed license plate receiving processing via Warehouse management mobile app.
