Random Weight Product 

A random weight Product is a Product where the weight of each unit that's picked needs to be recorded. For example, when packing cartons of meat, each carton is a slightly different weight, and the customer charges per kilogram. 

You will have to enter the exact weight of each item upon picking it. This information is then sent back to the Customer in their  Pack Notification Email to bill the receiver for the exact weight. 
No 
Warning Threshold Days

The number of days before expiration in which a warning threshold stock notification will be sent to the Customer. 

This is useful for advising a client that their stock will expire soon, and should be cleared out (possibly through a discount or promotion). This email can be configured through the Outgoing Notification Emails.
10
Expiry Threshold Days

The number of days before expiration that the Product will no longer be automatically selected on import. For example, products within 2 days of expiration probably shouldn't be sent out to customers as they won't last long enough once they arrive. Therefore, if an expiry threshold of 2 was used, the stock will no longer be selected automatically if the order is within 2 days of expiration.

Note, however; you can manually select stock for an order which is either Expired or within the Expiry Threshold.
2
Enable Low Stock Notification If enabled, you can set the stock quantity in which a low stock notification will be sent to the Customer. Yes
Low Stock Threshold Days 

When it is reached, the quantity in which a low stock notification will be sent to the Customer.

Initial Status of Purchase Order Product when created

You can modify and create your Product Status if required.

Stock Selection Method 

The method utilised to determine what stock is assigned to a Sale Order. 

  • Warehouse location pick efficiency only.
  • FEFO (First Expiry First Out) - Closest expiry date is selected first.
  • FIFO (First In First Out) - Longest time since arrival is selected first.
  • LIFO (Last In First Out) - Shortest time since arrival is selected first.


See the article: How CartonCloud chooses outgoing stock - Stock Selection Methods for more information.
FEFO
Strict Stock Selection 

If strict mode is enabled, then FEFO / FIFO / LIFO will be enforced even if it causes splitting of full pallets or picking from part pallets to build full pallets. 

See the article: How CartonCloud chooses outgoing stock - Stock Selection Methods for more information.
Yes
Stock Sub-Selection Method 

Once you have selected a Stock Selection Method, you must choose a Sub-Selection Method. This means that after the system uses the stock selection method if multiple locations meet that method's requirement, the sub-selection method will be used to optimise further how you select stock.

This logic is secondary to the Stock Selection method and will never override it.

  • Minimise Storage
  • Minimise Picks
