The Load Plan window allows the user to create a load plan for shipping, or to update an existing load plan.

Create a Load Plan


Enter the name of a load in the Load field. If the Load does not exist, a new one will be set up, and created when the "<OK>" button is pressed.


Add the bin in the Bin field.

Update an Existing Load Plan

Select the Load in the Load field. You can enter the Load if known, or hit the "Ctrl" and "A" keys to bring up a list of the available Loads.


Use the arrow keys to highlight the desired load, and press "Enter" to select it. The information will fill in the fields on the Load Planning screen. If you entered an existing Load, the information from that load will also fill in the appropriate fields.


For existing Load Plans, you can also update the Bin field.


Enter the new Bin information. Tabbing out of this field will take you to the "<Update>" button.

This button is only available when you are updating an existing load.


Press "Enter" to update the bin. Whistle will then verify that the bin is a valid bin. If so, you will see a message:

Add an order

Adding orders to the load is done by tabbing or using the arrow keys to go to the Order # field. In this field, enter the order number, or, to see a list of all available order numbers, press the "Ctrl" and "A" keys.


Select the desired order from the list, and press "Enter". Whistle will return you to the Load Planning screen, and the selected order will appear in the embedded result set in the middle of the screen. If you entered or scanned the order number into the field, it would also result in adding the order to the load and displaying it in the resultset.


Repeat these steps to add all desired orders to this load.

Add an Instruction

You can add an instruction to this load. Scroll to the Inst field, by tabbing or using the arrow keys. Enter the desired instruction.


When finished, press the "<OK>" button to finish creating or updating the Load.


Press "Enter" to continue. You should see the following message:


You will be taken back to the Load field, to set up another Load.

When finished with this screen, press the "<Back>" button or "Esc" to return to the Shipping menu.

Removing an order

You can remove an order from the Load by selecting it in the embedded result set, and then tabbing or using the arrow keys to highlight the "<Remove>" button.


You will be asked to confirm your intention to remove this order.


Press "Enter" to continue.


The list will re-display in the resultset. Notice that the removed order is no longer in the list.
