The wave planning creates pick tasks to fulfill all the orders in the wave. The pick tasks can be allocated to personnel automatically by the system, or a supervisor can allocate the tasks .

Proteus WM can be configured to a “pick to order” or a “pick to cart” modes of operations.

Each pick task comprises of two components - a ‘pick from’ task and a ‘drop to’ task.

Picking can be system directed which is created during the wave planning process or a user initiate, manual pick.

Users are required to choose to pick loose, from LPNs or entire LPNs. Based on the pick methodology used; tasks across multiple orders can be combined to a single pick task. Multiple LPNs can be picked for a single task and then dropped off in one transaction.
