When selecting a bin for pick when using directed pick and put-away the system is very limited in the way it selects a bin being driven almost entirely by the bin ranking,

This leads to as number of sub-optimal picks being created, especially if a product exists in multiple pick bin. A good example of this is the system suggesting making picks from two separate bins because the highest ranking bin has insufficient stock where the more efficient process would be take take the stock from the bin that has sufficient stock to fulfil the request in one picking action.

I would therefore like to propose that a pick template is implemented that is similar to the concept of the existing put-away template that allows the rules for the order bins are selected for picks to be defined.

This should have option for prioritizing the bin on the following possible rules:
Bin Ranking
Bin has sufficient quantity
Unit of Measure Match
Earliest Expiration Date (This is currently catered for as with the option for FEFO picking but this is a blunt option and does not allows this to be product specific.)
