_________________________________

Implement Capacity Check 3 for Fixed Bin Storage Type
f Neutral Indicators per Bin and Material
“Near-Fixed Bin” for Bulk and Rack Type Medias
Together, provide “top off” functionality in Fwd Pick Bins while
making replenishment process more efficient
Other considerations:
f Palletization data (LE Quantity) from WM2 View (Material
Master View) can help with this process for separate transfer
order (TO) line items per material
