This document describes the functionality of Pivot point or 'manual input quantity' (Dutch: 'omslagpunt').
Pivot point is intended to make the scanning process faster when you scan smaller quantities, or to be very precise on the quantity of the items.
When enabled, the manual input of quantity is skipped and scanning 1 item barcode means '1 picked'.Pivot point can be enabled in the scanner settings in Exact Globe menu System, E-WMS, Scanners for the following processes:
The settings for Sales Order Fulfillment can be defined in menu System, E-WMS, Scanners, Sales Order Fulfillment.
Quantity 0 (zero): pivot point is disabledQuantity 1 or higher: when the advised quantity for the line to be picked, is smaller or equal to this quantity, then input of quantity is skipped and each scan of the item = quantity 1 picked.
In Sales Order Fulfillment and Receipt settings, this setting is applied to standard (non batch) items only.In Replenishment and Production Issues, this setting applies to standard and batch items.
When using the hand terminal CAB client, this setting is used both for
standard and batch items (Sales order fulfillment only).
This setting is only available in Sales Order Fulfillment and Receipt
settings, and works the same as 'Manual input qty above', but is only applied
when scanning a batch item (ASP only).
Sales Order Fulfillment pivot point is set to '10'.The sales order has following order lines:
1. standard item 1 quantity 102. standard item 2 quantity 123. batch item 3 quantity 8
The order lines are sent to the hand terminal to be picked :
On the hand terminal, the first line for standard item 1 (1000G) is selected,
the location is scanned, and the first item code is scanned.
The screen remains at input of 'item code' and indicates that 1 out of 10 is
scanned, still 9 to scan. Each scan of the item code adds '1 picked'.
Five more items are scanned, but then it turns out that the remaining
expected stock is not available, so only 6 items can be fulfilled right now.
To continue with this line, you can now either press the NEXT button
or press the STOP button. Both buttons have the same effect at this point
when 'pivot point' is enabled, and will start the 'scanned less' dialogue. You
can now close this line (the remaining 4 will not be picked anymore), or answer
'No', in the latter case you will return to the start of the picking screen for
In this case, the line is closed and scanning continues for the batch item.
First the location is scanned, then the item code. After scanning the item 8
times in total, input of the batch number is required.
For the third item, the quantity to pick is 12, more than the pivot point
setting (10); so for this item the quantity just has to be entered:
