Multi-Bin Staging Locations

Staging

Staging locations are where items are stored until something else is done with them. Consider them holding locations. Staging Locations are setup in Inventory Management - Warehouse Code Maintenance.

Receiving

When setting up Multi-Bin Options, you will see there is an option for automatically assigning the "Warehouse Staging Location" to all incoming items. Based on our setup - this means that when the Receipt of Goods is processed, everything in that batch will be put into the RECEIVING bin location.

From here, warehouse staff can put the items in their actual home bins. RF scanning users will do this with their scanners. Manual users will do Inventory Transaction Transfers.

Shipping

When setting up Multi-Bin Options, you will see there is an option for automatically assigning the "Warehouse Staging Location" to all outgoing items. Based on our setup - this means that when the Sales Order Invoice is processed, everything in that order will be shipped from the SHIPPING bin location.

This means the when the order is entered, all items are pulled by warehouse staff from their primary pick locations and moved to the staging locations. RF scanning users will do this with their scanners. Manual users will do Inventory Transaction Transfers.
