Transfer Between Stock Containers


Transfer merchandise between stock (receiving) containers. This new functionality must allow the transfer between two containers, the origin or source container, to target container, updating the transferred quantity in each container.

The two containers must have the same stock type and they must belong to the same operation flow.

If an article is managed with expeiration date, there’s the possibility to transfer quantity to a container that have the same expiration date or if they are different, the target container’s expiration date will have the minimum expiration date of them. If one of the containers have a date lower that allowed, that container will not be considered and an error message will pop up.

The origin label is always manadtory, and the container must be available and in place to execute the task, no matter where’s the container in the warehouse wise.

The target label is mandatory, if the operation assigned to the origin container, has defined that the label is anonymous, if not, the target container label is not mandatory, which the system will produce and print through the access of label numbering.

It is possible to transfer a complete container to another one, or just the selected articles in the container, eitherway the quantity considered to transfer is only the available one, i.e, “Available Quantity” must be higher than “Reserved Quantity”.

This functionality is “On Demand”, which means that only users that are allowed, through RF menu permissions, will be capable to perform it.

Declare labels

To begin the process of transfer, the origin label is mandatory and the container assign to it must be available and in place, no matter where in the warehouse. The target label instead is mandatory only if in the operation definition the “Label anonymous” is set, which means the user must supply the label since it must be already printed. If the target label is not assigned to a container, a new one will be created and allocated.

Global Global → Global Application → Application → Warehouse Management → Tailoring→ Actions and Working Units → Work Unitid Manegement [AL118]
