AX 2012 R3 MWS calling for more production picking work

    I'm trying to find a way to call for additional raw material by creating additional production picking work with WMS. I get it to work until I reach the production BOM amount but what if I need to call on more material than is specified in the production BOM? The goal is to find a way for a production planner or production operator to create a production picking work with WMS to avoid having the warehouse workers do manual warehouse movements. We need to be able to relay the picking work in a manner where we create as little room as possible for error or miscommunication. Have you perhaps the answer to my issue?
    We start the production order before we release WMS production picking waves. After releasing the waves we manually process and release picking work to the warehouse. We don't post any picking journals to the production order before hand but instead wait for the production operator to post a picking list line with the actual consumption in real time via an integration to a scale system.
