Non-Stock Kits to Sorting after Batch Picking

We have an issue where non-stock kits put on Batch worksheet/picklists will not let a picker stage the pick to a “Sorting” location. 

 

I get an error saying “The given key was not present in the dictionary.”

 

There is no issue if the kits are put on Wave worksheets/picklists. 

 

I have tried to allow production/assembly in our picking and sorting locations and toggling requires shipment on the kit. 

 

Is there anything else I can try to allow the non-stock kits to be batch picked? My warehouse likes to pick all of the single line orders first on batches instead of waves.

I just tried this in 23R2 and i was able to batch pick my components of the Non-stock kit.  At shipment creation, the components appear on the picklist worksheet for picking.  I was able to specify the Sort location during the operation in Pick/Pack/Ship.

Row 2,3 and 4 are my kit components (which are stock items) of my non-stock kit which is a Towel Bundle.

Just ran a test and it looks like this limitation is gone in 23R1 which is great news for my warehouse.

Is there a way to filter out shipments that have non stock kits on them?

There is with a filter I made, but it is slightly more time consuming when picking.  

Can you give me more details please? 

I have to excel lists, one with just non-stock kit SKU’s and another with all the other product SKU’s.

On the “Create Pick Lists” page, I have my warehouse upload the non-stock kit sku list in the inventory id field, and create waves from those orders, then I have them make batches out of the remaining lists of sku’s using that same method.

Any orders left have both regular sku’s and non-stock kit sku’s so we put them on waves.

 

It’s a bit aggravating and time consuming, but it’s the fastest method I could come up with.

This is great. We are on 23R1 now but haven’t tried again since upgrading.
