Business value

This feature helps to increase the utilization of the warehouse workforce, allowing for flexibility in planning day-to-day tasks. It allows the user to manually correct some automatically created assignments.

Feature details

This feature helps solve the business challenge in which a single employee cannot finalize work within a given time and other users are available to assist completing it. The work can be split in two or more work headers in order to assign it to available employees. The feature adds the flexibility of restructuring work after it has been created and is in either an open or in-progress state. A worker will not be able to proceed with work lines that might concurrently be split to another user. The existing blocking mechanism has been refactored.
