Orders Waiting Fulfillment Queue

Orders Waiting Fulfillment have been fully allocated and are waiting for the associated Shipping Orders to be shipped and closed. A buildup of Orders in this queue at a particular fulfillment site might indicate a problem at that site.

Monitoring Frequency

Actions

Occasional

Review and investigate Orders that remain in this queue for an excessive length of time. Investigate sites that have large numbers of Orders or old Orders in this queue.

Example:

A Shipping Order is Waiting Pick/ Pack for an extended period of time. Because it isn't closed, the associated Sales Order remains in the Waiting Fulfillment Queue. An Order Management user notes that the Sales Order has been Waiting Fulfillment for a much longer time than is usual and contacts the personnel responsible for the Shipping Order to determine the reason for the delay. Site personnel can then address the issue and fulfill the Order.
