“Tote that barge. Lift that bale”.
Although most warehouse movements are a planned put-away or a pick, occasionally you’re going to want to move inventory from one location to another.
Here’s the process. Let’s start with the setup we need.
First we need a ‘Work class’. Go to Warehouse management > Setup > Work > Work classes:
You need a Work class with a Work order type of ‘Inventory movement’.
Next we need a ‘Movement type code’. Warehouse management > Setup > Inventory > Movement types:
Of course we need a Mobile device menu item. Warehouse management > Setup > Mobile device > Mobile device menu items:
Create a Mobile device menu item called Warehouse transfer and tick ‘Use existing work’. Link to your Inventory movement Work class ID.
And you’ll add that menu item to a suitable menu (e.g. Inventory). Warehouse management > Setup > Mobile device > Mobile device menu:
Now we’re ready to create our movement work. Go to the View on-hand form. Warehouse management > Inquires > On hand by location:
Note. This on-hand form only shows items in Warehouse management enabled warehouses.
Select your location. On-hand by location > Right-click > View details, or Warehouse management > Setup > Warehouse setup > Locations:
Click the ‘Create inventory movement work’ button on the Location form. The system displays the Create inventory movement work form:
Enter the Quantity to be moved; To location; and Movement type code.
Click Create work:
Now let’s perform that work in the mobile client. My menu looks like this:
Obviously I select ‘warehouse transfer’ and enter a work id:
Note. When you setup the Mobile device menu item, if you had chosen a ‘Directed by’ of ‘System directed’ instead of ‘User directed’ then the system would simply display the next work item to the user.
Our first work step is a pick:
Here there’s another option you could have set when you setup the Mobile device menu item: ‘Work confirmation setup’ – but because I’m not being asked to confirm anything here, I’m straight onto the put:
Just in time for a rousing chorus of “Ol’ Man River”
