The outbound flow in the warehouse begins with a request from released source documents to bring the items out of the warehouse location, either to be shipped to an external party or to another company location. From the storage area, warehouse activities are performed at different complexity levels to bring the items out to the shipping docks.
Each item is identified and matched to a corresponding inbound source document.
The following outbound source documents exist:
- Sales order
- Outbound transfer order
- Purchase return order
- Service order
In addition, the following internal source documents exist that function:
- Production order with component need
- Assembly order with component need
