A manager at one of our plants sent me the question below. As far as I know the answer to his question is No, but I thought I'd ask the experts here on BPCS-L.

We are on BPCS 5.1.

(Unfortunately, we moved our headquarters to a new building a year ago and were forced to ditch all hard-copy BPCS documentation prior to the move.)

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Is it possible to delete an inventory location in BPCS for an individual part number? If so, please advise.

Background Info: We have numerous parts with multiple locations that are no longer used. We also have a couple of a couple of fictitious locations (e.g., BAN and PAN) we want to get rid of. We think we know how to mass delete location from the system, but all items have to be at zero qty. We would like to remove the locations as we come across them for individual items. An example is part number U35A02001. You can see from the transactions below that we reported a shop order on 3/21 and then transferred the inventory from BAN to FM0105 on 3/27. It would have been great at that time to the delete BAN as a location for this line item.
Trans Ref No Whse/Loc Quantity Date Balance Lot
T 30 FM0105 1.000 3/27/17 1.000
T 30 BAN 1.000- 3/27/17
PR 52698 30 BAN 1.000 3/21/17 1.000

FYI - we have recently started an aggressive cycle counting program and are constantly running into these BAN and PAN locations, which have no physical location in the warehouse. Inaccurate or poorly labeled warehouse locations, part identification, and shop order reporting issues so far have been the primary reasons for our count discrepanices. We want to clean up the locations both in BPCS and in the plant.

Thanks in advance for the assistance.
