We have had several customers who only want to use the pick for their sales order / warehouse shipment and would like to not require a pick on the production or assembly orders. Some of our customers replenish bins in the work center bin that is used for production or move bulk product to the work centers via movements or reclass entries (usually semi-automated on a scanner). It would be good to be able to be more specific on where you want to use picks and where you do not and allow flexibility for alternate processes.

If you don't require a pick, it doensn't mean that you can't use it. However, I agree that there's no way of making it mandatory on Sales and not mandatory on Production Orders.

Sometimes customers move away from Production Picks because NAV is not flexible: You must pick the exact quantity that is to be consumed; not more, not less. On a food industry, for example, customers pick additional raw material and leave it there for future orders; Production Picks are useless here.

Therefore, leaving this Pick requirement more specific per area will make Warehousing easier for customers who have a more dynamic production environment, but still want to benefit from Sales Picks.
