WE ARE ON 6.1. WE USE THE "DEFAULT LOCATION/WAREHOUSE" FOR CERTAIN SELECT ITEMS, BUT BECAUSE THE MAJORITY OF OUR USERS DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO THE ITEM MASTER, WE BUILD THIS DESCRIPTION INTO THE ITEM DESCRIPTION. FOR INSTANCE. BOTTLE SS 201P*****FESTOR FESTOR IS THE DEFAULT LOCATION WE WISH THE BOTTLE STORED IN. WHEN THE USER SEES THE ****, THEY KNOW THAT MEANS A DEFAULT LOCATION FOLLOWS. -----Original Message----- From: Tom Jedrzejewicz @ San Pedro [mailto:TJedrzejewicz@contessa.com] Sent: Tuesday, November 19, 2002 2:11 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: Stock Locators Sometimes I am dense. My version (4.0.03) has the fields IIM.ILOC (Default Location) and IWI.WILOC (Default Location). Isn't this exactly what they are supposed to be used for? Tom J. >>> email@example.com 11/19/02 07:56AM >>> Our materials department would like to enter a stock locator for all part numbers. This locator will be a reference field only which would be used for barcode scanning and various reports. The purpose of the Stock Locator: Receiving will know which Aisle, Row and Shelf in which to place Stock and the material handlers and cycle counter will know where stock is stored. We will not manage inventory in and out of these locations. Materials controls Facility Planning Data and this would be the ideal place for this information as materials may enter/update the locator as required. The locator number would be 5 characters and alpha-numeric. Some of the ideas that we currently considered: Item Notes but this area is controlled by Engineering. Drawing/formula field, controlled by Engineering and already in use. List/Catalog No in the Item Master but this field will be used by Sales in the future. Is there another company that uses something similar to this now? Does anyone have any suggestions on where I could store this data?
