@Sam_NAVARRO: Thanks for volunteering.
This is how we have designed it:
There are two types of Room, Aisle, Rack, Bin (RARB) we have conceptualized -
- Predetermined RARB (typically for items that have a predictable size and shape and quantities)
- On-the-fly RARB for items that do not have a predictable shape or size
Here’s how it works:
First you have to specify which of your Warehouses follow the Room, Aisle, Rack, Bin (RARB) system. Let’s focus on the Predetermined RARB for now.
Then you have to specify the number of rooms, aisles, racks and bins. You cannot say that room 1 has 5 Aisles, but Room 2 has 8. We suggest that you use the highest number. You can leave whole Aisles, Racks and Bins inactive, though.
Then you get ERPNext to generate the Unique RARB numbers.
Then you need to nail down the RARB numbers that the Items are placed in. You can keep the same item in multiple Bins though.
Now you are ready.
One thing you need to know though: This version will not generate the RARB number in the Stock Balance report. This is significant for especially the same items that you are using multiple bins for as the system will not tell the picker or the putter (okay bad word) which Bin to pick from or put the item at. So the Picker has to try one of the bins, if that’s empty s/he has the try the next and so on. Similarly for putting (try not to think of golf), if the bin is full the user has to find the next bin.
But you do get a Pick List and a Put List (it’s a print format) to help users achieve this.
Does this sound okay to you? Is it enough to begin? Or are there any show stoppers that we have to build?
