The stock room staff will scan the material order with the mobile computer to confirm if the order has been entered in the system. If yes, items listed in the order will be picked ( according to the part numbers listed in the order, barcodes in the order will be scanned and picked then ). Quantity removed from the stock room will then be entered into the mobile computer to update the stock quantity data immediately.
