WMS Outbound Consolidation

Bishnu Prasad Choudhury / / 0

WMS Outbound Consolidation

  • Consolidation is the process of bringing materials from different locations of warehouse to a consolidated location for packing and shipping.
  • Consolidation can occur at one or more points during outbound process
  • Mostly this has been performed during picking, so that picked materials can be consolidated for packing before shipping
  • Some warehouses do this even after packing to consolidate in pallets which can be shipped later
Oracle WMS allows 8 types of system directed consolidation based on following key factors

  • Should material be consolidated in a consolidated locator or directly in a staging lane
  • Should consolidation occur at LPN level
  • Can material from different deliveries be consolidated based on the operation plan while upholding the consolidation rules such as no loose material is allowed in the outer most LPN

LPN Based Consolidation in a Staging Lane Within Delivery

  • This is the default method for outbound consolidation.
  • This allows consolidation of materials in a single delivery directly to a LPN in a staging lane
  • System suggests the last LPN dropped off for this delivery in this staging lane

Direct Consolidation in a Staging Lane across Deliveries

  • This allows to consolidate materials across deliveries in a staging lane
  • Don’t consolidate material in a consolidation LPN within a staging lane
  • System does not suggest a drop LPN for the dropping

Direct Consolidation in a Staging Lane within Deliveries

  • This allows to consolidate materials for a single delivery
  • System will not suggest any LPN

LPN based Consolidation in Consolidation Locator Across Deliveries in Staging Lane

  • This allows to consolidate materials across deliveries into a consolidated LPN in a consolidation locator
  • After consolidation, materials can be moved to staging lane using mass move functionality

LPN based consolidation in Consolidation Locator within Delivery in Staging Lane

  • This allows to consolidate materials within a delivery into a consolidated LPN in a consolidation locator
  • After consolidation, materials can be moved to staging lane using mass move functionality

LPN Based consolidation in Staging Lane Across Deliveries

  • This allows to consolidate materials across multiple deliveries into a consolidation LPN in a staging lane

Locator based Consolidation in Consolidation Locator Across Deliveries in Staging Lane

  • This allows to consolidate each deliveries in separate consolidation locator
  • Then consolidate material for multiple deliveries in same staging lane

Locator based Consolidation in Consolidation Locator within Delivery in Staging Lane

  • This allows to consolidate materials for a delivery in a consolidation locator
  • Then move the materials to staging lane

Basic Setups for consolidation

 Define Default Consolidation Mode in the Organization Parameters window


Define consolidation locators


Define locator dropping order


Define operation plan selection rules


Consolidation Validation

  • All lines in the From and To LPN, if the material resides in an existing LPN, must be assigned to a delivery
  • The destination LPN must be in a locator type Staging
  • The destination LPN must not have any loose material. If LPNs are nested, the nested LPNs can contain loose material
  • All tasks loaded into the From LPN and To LPN must have an operation plan if the consolidation method set to across deliveries
