In this class we deal with the Merlin MRP Factory 9
Warehouse Management & Stock Locations.
Click the Manufacturing Resources tab on the Home Screen
then select the Resource Record Card from the List. Now click the Manage Locations button in the Warehouse Management panel, without clicking to EDIT this record first. If it is already in EDIT mode, click the SAVE or REVERT button.
Click the NEW RECORD button and you will see the screen below.
The Primary Location Sequence for any Stock Item should be zero (0). If you add Additional Locations for the item you should sequence them 1, 2, 3 and so on. The reason for this is that when Merlin issues materials to Jobs, it will take them from the Primary Location first. If this is insufficient, it will work its way down the list of locations in sequential order to satisfy the Issue demand.
You need enter only a Reference ID for the Location itself, Notes, as always, being discretionary. If you are starting out afresh, a logical system would be to use Aisle Number followed by Bay No., e.g. "A15B26". If you have more than one Warehouse, you could prefix this with the Warehouse No., e.g."1A15B26". Nice and easy to understand when you view it.
Click SAVE when you are done, then click the Locations for this Item tab.
You will now see the results of your handiwork in the List. Click the Primary Location line.
You will again see the screen below. Click the SAVE button, followed by EXIT FORM.
You will then be taken back to the Resource Record Card, with the Primary Location populated for this item.
And finally in this Tutorial, Transferring Stock items with Multiple Warehouse Locations from one to another.
