Define Warehouse Strategy

A strategy is an ordered sequence of rules that the system uses to fulfill complex business demands. The rules strategy are selected in sequence until the put away or picking task is fully allocated, or until a cost group that meets the restriction is found. When you define strategies, you also specify the date or range of dates on which the strategy is effective. You also specify whether you want the system to execute a strategy, if it can only successfully execute part of that strategy.
