Transferring stock between bins

Updated over a week ago


Stock can be transferred internally due to many reasons.

For example, damage occurs to or storage system in the warehouse.

WMS can track items by many bin locations in the warehouse. Moreover, WMS can transfer items internally and view the stock in each Bin.

Workflow Restrictions

Paste From Clipboard

Ability to paste from Clipboard into the Stock ReOrder form.

Must be in the following columns (no header required):

650 10 AA 1222323878 BB

Or direct from Excel: Copy and paste 3 columns side by side.

Using the "Analyse in Excel" option, you need to re-arrange the columns or make a new sheet with just the three columns.

When ready to paste, select "Paste From Clipboard."

Workflow Options

"*" Bin should not be used, and *is a particular case. *bin refers to mix bin (it's not a BIN), and it randomly can pick from any bin and cause the system to pick from the same Bin. It is bad to use * bin and might need to revise the workflow.

If no bin needs to be used, the user must create the NOSLOT bin and assign that.
