12. Move Guide

Moves can be used to transfer stock within or between warehouses. Produmex offers several specialized flows for the different scenarios in stock relocation:

  • ‘Ad hoc movement’: to move stock within or between PMX managed warehouses without a move order created in the office environment
  • ‘Move order’: to move stock within or between PMX managed warehouses based on move orders created in the office environment
  • ‘Replenish pick locations’: to move stock based on system generated replenishment orders
  • ‘Consolidated move’: to execute ad hoc moves in a group within a PMX warehouse
  • ‘Move from WA location’: to move stock from a warehouse automation location
  • ‘Receive from WHS’: to move stock from a warehouse not managed by PMX to a PMX warehouse

To execute the flows on the shopfloor follow the next path on the handheld terminal: Logistic > Move.

Default location calculation

When the location suggestion is enabled for the warehouse, the Default location is the first suggested location calculated based on the logic described in Location suggestions.

When the location suggestion is not enabled for the warehouse, the Default location is the standard location set for the given warehouse on the Produmex Inventory tab of the Item Master Data of the item. If the items to move have different standard location set for the warehouse, no default location is displayed.

When a movement has been carried out on the shopfloor, it is also registered administratively in the Produmex Office module where it can be consulted. To see the movements, open the ’Move’ screen via the following path: Produmex > Inventory > Move. Move screen

12.1. Ad hoc moves

Ad-hoc moves are used to move stock without a move order. The movement can be performed both in the office environment and on the shopfloor.

12.1.1. Configuration

Set the default warehouses
Set default warehouses for the thin client. For more information about thin client settings see: 5.2.10. Thin client settings

12.1.1.2. Move controller
Adjust the settings for the ad hoc moves in the move controller. For more information about the move controller see: 5.1.3.58. Move controller

12.1.2. Ad-hoc movements in the office

Select stock line(s) from the Inventory Report. Click on the ’Move’ button and select the ’Perform move’ option from the dropdown menu.

On the ‘Perform Move’ window, select a destination location from the dropdown menu. Every active location of the company can be selected./ Both local moves and warehouse transfers can be performed. Add the quantity. By default the quantity is the quantity of the stock line. The entered quantity cannot exceed the quantity of the stock in the line. Press the ‘Execute’ button to perform the move.

Please note: Only authorized users can perform ad-hoc moves in the office. For more information please see: Authorizations

12.1.3. Ad-hoc movements on the shopfloor

If the No SSCC button is tapped, the system can move all the stock of the product regardless of whether or not the stock has an SSCC. If it has one or more SSCCs, the system chooses the SSCC to move.

When there are more than one item on the logistic unit/SSCC, or the Always scan product? option is enabled on the Move controller, the system will display a list of those items. Identify the item by scanning or selecting it from the list. When there is only one item on the logistic unit/pick location, the system will automatically proceed with that item.

When the item has more than one batch on that location, a list of batches will be displayed. Identify the product by selecting the batch. When there is only one batch, the system will automatically proceed with that batch.

Enter quantity

Enter the quantity to move. For more information about adding the quantity in Produmex see: 4.3.4. Screens for entering additional information

Identify destination location/SSCC

To move the selected products to an existing SSCC, scan the SSCC. If the scanned SSCC is not in stock, identify the destination location on the next screen. The products will be moved to that logistic unit and location. Then the system will go back to the ‘Scan source location or GS1 label’ screen.

To create a new logistic unit, press the ‘New SSCC’ button then identify the destination location.

To move the selected products without changing the logistic unit, scan or select a location from a list.

When moving a partial pallet and the SSCC was not defined in this step (either by scanning an existing one or by creating a new one), then the products will be moved without a linked SSCC.

Scan the destination location or select it from a list after pressing the ‘Select other location’ button. When the location suggestion option is not enabled to the warehouse, the system will display an additional ‘Select empty location’ button. To execute the move to an empty location, press this button and select a location from the list.

When the location suggestion is not enabled for the warehouse, the Default location is the standard location set for the given warehouse on the Produmex Inventory tab of the Item Master Data of the item. If the items to move have different standard location set for the warehouse, no default location is displayed.

In case of a warehouse transfer, the ‘Warehouse: move has been added (701)’ print event will be triggered after the destination location had been selected, if the print event is defined.

In case of a new SSCC has been created, the ‘Warehouse: a new LU has been created (700)’ print event will be triggered after the destination location had been selected, if the print event is defined.

Logistic unit/ items are moved

After scanning or selecting the destination location, the ad-hoc movement is registered and the system displays the message: Logistic unit/Items are moved.

The movement is booked as ‘Move’ in case of local moves or as a ‘Warehouse transfer’ in case of warehouse transfers.

12.1.3.3. Multiple logistic units

To move multiple logistic units at once, press the ’Multiple logistic units’ button.

Scan the SSCC’s

Scan the SSCC’s to move. The already scanned SSCC’s will be displayed in a list. After having all the SSCC’s to move scanned, proceed with the right arrow button.

Scan the destination location or GS1 label

Scan the destination location or select it from a list after pressing the ’Select other location’ button.

To group the scanned SSCC into a master SSCC, press the ’Move to new master SSCC’ button then select the destination location.

When the location suggestion is enabled for the warehouse, the Default location is the first suggested location calculated based on the logic described in Location suggestions.

When the location suggestion is not enabled for the warehouse, the Default location is the standard location set for the given warehouse on the Produmex Inventory tab of the Item Master Data of the item. If the items to move have different standard location set for the warehouse, no default location is displayed.

When the location suggestion is not enabled, an additional ‘Select empty location’ button will be displayed. To execute the move to an empty location, press this button and select a location from the list.

In case of a warehouse transfer, the Warehouse: move has been added (701)’ print event will be triggered after the destination location had been selected, if the print event is defined.

In case of a new master SSCC has been created, the ‘Warehouse: a new master LU has been created (702)’ print event will be triggered after the destination location had been selected, if the print event is defined.

Logistic unit/ items are moved

After identifying the destination location, the ad-hoc movement is registered and the system displays the message: Logistic unit/Items are moved.

The movement is booked as ‘Move’ in case of local moves or as a ‘Warehouse transfer’ in case of warehouse transfers.

12.1.3.4. Bulk move

The bulk move will take stock from a silo/tank and move it to another silo/tank. The stock to move will be calculated by the consumption algorithm defined on the silo/tank.

Identify pick location

Identify the source silo/tank by scanning or selecting it from a list after pressing the ’Select location’ button.

Identify destination location

Then identify the destination location. This location also should be a silo or a tank. Scan or select the location from a list after pressing the ’Select location’ button.

Items are moved

After pressing the right arrow button, the move will be booked.

12.2. Move orders

There is a possibility to prepare moves by adding move orders in the office environment. The moves can be executed on the shopfloor.

12.2.1. Office

12.2.1.1. Order entry

There are two ways to add a move order to the system.
The first way is to select stock in the inventory report of Produmex.
One or more rows can be selected to group them in one move order. It is possible to select different items or products. Products stored on different locations can also be selected in one move order. The only limitation is that all the products to move should be in the same warehouse.
After selecting the stock to move, click on the ’Move’ button and select the ’Make move order’ option.
After clicking the ‘Make move order’ button the screen with the data of the move order is shown. This screen shows the details of the stock that needs to be moved. The system has copied the data from the current status in the inventory report.
Fill in the destination location, warehouse and LUID.

The second way to add a move order is to start from an empty move order and filling the needed data. Click on the menu entry ‘Move order’.

12.2.1.2. Move order screen

Header
Number
This is the number of the move order. This will be filled in when the move order is added.

Due Date
The due date of the move order. When entering a new move order the current date is used.

Type
The type of the move cannot be selected as the system will decide which type the order is based on the properties of the order. In case of moving stock within a warehouse, the order type will be ‘Move’. In case of moving stock in between warehouses, the order type will be ‘Warehouse transfer’. ‘Put away’ and ‘Replenishment’ type move orders are added to the system automatically and cannot be created by a user.

From warehouse
The source warehouse to move the stock from.

To warehouse
The destination warehouse the stock needs to be stored.

Priority
The priority the move order has.

Remarks
The remarks linked to the move order. When the move order is selected on the shopfloor, this remark will be shown.

Details
Item code – Barcode - Item name
The identification of the product.

Qty – Open Qty
The quantities.

Batch ID
The ITRI key of the stock.

Src. Stor. Loc.
The source location of the stock.

Src. Log. Unit
The source LUID of the stock.

Dest. Stor Loc.
The destination location of the stock. This location should be the same for all lines in the move order. When the source and destination warehouse are the same, all locations in the warehouse are allowed. In case the source and destination warehouse are different, the destination locations can only be the docks on source a destination warehouse.

Dest. Log. Unit.
The destination LUID. If provided, the LUID should be the same for all move order lines.

Quality status
The quality status of the stock.

Src.master log.Unit
The LUID of the master logistic unit where the stock to move is allocated.

Stock Level
The stock level corresponding to the move order line. By default ‘Detail’ is entered. This means all data in the lines are used ‘as is’. So if for example no source LUID is provided, the stock to move cannot have an LUID linked to it.

There is a second stock level ‘Item’. This means only the item and quantity are needed. Source LUID and batch ID are optional. If the data is provided, the user on the shopfloor will have to take the stock from that LUID/batch ID. But if this data is not provided, any batch or LUID can be taken when executing the move on the shopfloor.

The third stock level is ’Master SSCC’. This means that only the source master LUID and the destination location are needed. It is recommended to create move orders with Master SSCC level from an empty move order.

The stock in the move order will not be locked. This means other processes can use this stock if needed. For this reason the system will not check if the stock really exists at time of the creation of the move order. So it is possible that when the move order is executed on the shopfloor, the requested stock is not available anymore. An error message will show this when executing the move order.

12.2.1.3. Open move orders

It is possible to get a list of open move orders. Click on the menu entry ‘Open document report’ and select ‘Move order’ as the document type.

When selecting a move order the data of the move order can be changed if the move order is of type ‘Move order’ or ‘Warehouse transfer’ and if it has the status ‘Nothing moved’. In all other cases only the priority and remarks can be updated.

12.2.2. Shopfloor

MO_FLOW

To execute move order press the ‘Move order’ button.

12.2.2.1. Select move order

Select the move order to execute from the list. The move orders are ordered by priority, due date, move order number. If the move order is of type ‘Warehouse transfer’, it is indicated with an icon. After selecting the move order, the linked remarks will be displayed. Press ‘Ok’ to proceed.

12.2.2.2. Select item

Select an item to move from the list. Only items from the move order will be displayed in the list.

12.2.2.3. Identify source location/SSCC

Provide a source SSCC or location. There are three possibilities to enter the source SSCC or location, based on the data entered in the move order line.

  • LUID is provided on move order line:

In this case the SSCC defined on the move order line has to be scanned. No other SSCC is allowed. The SSCC and location of the SSCC is shown on the screen.

  • Stock level: Item and no LUID is provided on move order line:

When the stock level is ‘Item’ and no source detail was provided, the source LUID and batch are optional.
Identify an SSCC to move. The source location where the SSCC should be stored is shown on the screen.
To get all the stock available for the product to move, press the ‘No SSCC’ button. On the next screen, identify the source location.

  • Stock level = Detail and no LUID is provided:

When the stock level is ‘Detail’ and no source LUID was provided, then the product to move cannot have linked LUID. Because there is no linked LUID, in order to identify the product the source location should be specified first.
Scan the pick location or select it from a list after pressing the ‘Select location’ button. Only the source location set in the order can be added. The source location is displayed on the screen.

12.2.2.4. Identify product

When an SSCC was scanned and all the items on that SSCC were ordered to move, the system skips this step and automatically moves the full SSCC. All screens to further identify the stock will be skipped, and a ‘Moving the full logistic unit… ‘ message will be shown. Press ‘Ok’ to proceed.

Scan the product to move, or select it after pressing the ‘Select a product’ button. Only the products stored on the location/SSCC are shown in the list.

If no SSCC was scanned and there are multiple SSCC’s found for the product on the location, select an SSCC to move. In case the location has stock that has no SSCC linked to it, an additional ‘No SSCC’ button will be displayed. Select the SSCC to move then proceed with the right arrow button or press the ‘No SSCC’ button to move stock with no linked SSCC.

When moving an item that has products with different batches on the selected location or SSCC, identify the product to move by selecting its batch from a list. The screen will be skipped when there are no different batches.

12.2.2.5. Enter the quantity

Enter the quantity to move. The added quantity cannot exceed the quantity in the move order.

12.2.2.6. Add new item(s)

The entered data is now added to a list of items to move and the system will get back to the ‘Select an item to move’ screen. Select the next move order line and proceed as described above.

12.2.2.7. Stop process

When there are items in the list of items to move, the ‘Stop’ button is enabled. Press the button to execute the move for all items in the list.

12.2.2.8. Go back

To go back, press the left arrow button. A confirmation screen will be shown if there are already added items in the list to move. Press the ‘Yes’ button to clear all the entered data and to go back to the ‘Select move order’ screen. Press the ‘No’ button to proceed.

12.2.2.7. Identify destination location/SSCC

When there are no more items to move, the screen to enter the destination location will be shown.

If an SSCC is scanned, the items will be added to the SSCC.
If the destination LUID is provided on the move order line, the destination SSCC has to be scanned and the screens to enter the destination location will be skipped.
If a location is scanned, the products will be stored on that location. It is possible to select the location from a list after pressing the ‘Select location’ button. When the location was defined in the move order, only the defined location can be scanned or selected.
To select an empty location, press the ‘Select empty location’ button and select it from a list. The locations in the list are locations allowed for the products by zone type.
To add the products to a new SSCC, press the ‘New SSCC’ button, then identify the destination location.
In case of a warehouse transfer, the ‘Warehouse: move has been added (701)’ print event will be triggered after the destination location had been selected, if the print event is defined.
In case of a new SSCC has been created, the ‘Warehouse: a new LU has been created (700)’ print event will be triggered and the logistic label will be printed after the destination location had been selected, if the print event is defined.

12.2.2.9. Logistic unit/Items are moved

After identifying the destination location, the movement is registered and the system confirms that the logistic unit has been moved. The movement will be booked as a ‘Move’ in case of local moves or a ‘Warehouse transfer’ in case of moving stock between warehouses.

12.3. Replenishment

When replenishment configurations are set for a location or an item, the replenish tool will automatically create replenish orders when the following conditions are met:

  • the stock reaches the minimum quantity set for the location or item
  • there are available stock on the bulk locations for the replenishment

The replenishment orders can be executed on the shopfloor.
Replenish tool also generates a ‘ReplenishTool’ log file.

12.3.1. Configuration

12.3.1.1. Replenishment generator

Select the replenishment type at the ‘Replenishment generator’.

  • ‘Generates replenishment orders (DEREPGEN)’ replenishment orders are triggered based on the configurations on the pick locations.
  • ‘Generates item based replenishment orders (BREPGEN)’ : replenishment orders are triggered based on the configuration on the item master data.

For more information about the replenishment generator see: 5.1.3.50. Replenishment generator

12.3.1.2. Item master data

Extra configurations needed for the item based type replenishment order. Add a value to the ‘Replenishment: Quantity on pick locations’ and ‘Estimated sales quantity by month’ field in the Item Master Data.
For more information about the Item Master Data settings see: 3.1.3. Produmex Sales Tab

12.3.1.3. Pick location

Enable the ‘Can be replenished’ option and adjust the minimum, maximum and replenish quantity of the item for the pick location to be replenished.
For more information about the bin settings see: 5.2.6. Bin settings

Click on the flowchart element to go to the relevant section of the page or to open related documentation.

12.3.2.1. Select a zone

If the ‘Select zone on replenishment flow? (Y/N)’ option is enabled on the Replenishment generator, then select a zone first. A zone is listed there is a location in the zone that is the destination location of a replenishment order.

12.3.2.2. Select replenish order line

On the next screen every open line of replenishment orders from the warehouses assigned to the scanner is listed. If a zone was selected, only the lines of replenishment orders for locations that belong to the selected zone are listed.

In the example the replenishment order (1036) for a specific pick location (A0003) is split in multiple lines, because the system requires product from multiple sources (locations, SSCC’s, batches…) to assemble the required replenishment quantity to fulfill the order.

12.3.2.3. Identify source logistic unit or location

After selecting the replenishment order, scan the source SSCC. The bulk location and the source SSCC are displayed on the screen. Only the SSCC from the order can be scanned. If the scanned SSCC is a mono pallet with the exact same quantity as the quantity to replenish, the system automatically proceeds to the Scan destination location screen.
In case of there is no SSCC present, scan the pick location or select it from a list after pressing the ‘Select location’ button.

12.3.2.4. Identify product

If multiple items are stored on the logistic unit or bulk location, identify the product to move. Scan the product or select it from a list after pressing the ‘Select a product’ button. Every item that is stored on the logistic unit/bulk location is listed, but only the item to replenish can be scanned or selected.
If there is only one item on the SSCC/ location, the system will automatically proceed with that item.

12.3.2.5. Enter quantity

Enter the quantity. By default the quantity on the replenish order line will be displayed, but it is possible to proceed with another quantity. The maximum quantity depends on the quantity of the item on the SSCC/ location.

12.3.2.6. Scan destination location/SSCC

After having identified the products to move, scan the destination location or SSCC. To select the destination location from a list, press the ‘Select location’ button.
It is possible to move the products to a new logistic unit. Press the ‘New SSCC’ button, then identify the destination location.

12.3.2.7. Logistic unit/Item moved

After having confirmed the destination location, the system registers the move of the logistic units or items and goes back to the ‘Select a replenish order’ screen.
When all replenish order lines are processed, the replenish order is closed.

12.4. Consolidated move

This move is used for executing put aways or ad-hoc moves in a group. The input of the consolidated move can be either a location or SSCC’s.

12.4.1. Initiate the flow

To initiate the flow, press the ‘Consolidated move’ button. The button can be reached via: Logistic > Move

12.4.2. Scan an SSCC or location

When using SSCC’s as an input, scan the SSCC’s to move. The already scanned SSCC’s will be displayed in a list. After scanning all the SSCCs, press the right arrow button to proceed. The items located on the logistic units will be displayed in a list.

When using a location as an input, scan the location or press the ‘Select location’ button and select a pick location from the list. The items located on that location will be displayed in a list.

12.4.3. Identify product

Press the ‘Move everything’ button to move all the products displayed in the list or select an item to identify the product to move.

When moving an item that has products with different batches on the selected location or SSCC, identify the product to move by selecting its batch from a list. On the next screen add the quantity. The entered quantity cannot exceed the quantity in stock on from the selected batch on the location.

To move every batch, press the ‘Move everything’ button.

When moving products that are stored on more than one logistic unit on the selected location, identify the products by selecting an SSCC from the list. On the next screen add the quantity. The entered quantity cannot exceed the item quantity on the logistic unit.

When there are products on the selected location without a logistic unit, instead of the ‘Move everything’ button an ‘Other tasks’ button will be displayed. After pressing this button two buttons will be displayed:

  • Move everything
  • No SSCC

To select the products without a logistic unit, press the ‘No SSCC’ button. On the next screen add the quantity. The entered quantity cannot exceed the quantity on stock.

12.4.4. Identify destination location/ SSCC

To move the selected products to an existing SSCC, scan the SSCC. If the scanned SSCC is not in stock, identify the destination location on the next screen. The products will be moved to that logistic unit and location. Then the system will go back to the ‘Scan source location or GS1 label’ screen.

To create a new logistic unit, press the ‘New SSCC’ button then identify the destination location.

To move the selected products without changing the logistic unit, simply scan or select a location from a list.

Please note: Products will be moved without a linked SSCC in the following cases:

  • When moving a partial pallet and the SSCC was not defined
  • When moving every pallet containing the selected item from the location and there is a mixed pallet containing other items among the pallets to move

Scan the destination location or select it from a list after pressing the ‘Select other location’ button. When the location suggestion option is not enabled to the warehouse, the system will display an additional ‘Select empty location’ button. To execute the move to an empty location, press this button and select a location from the list.

When the location suggestion is enabled for the warehouse, the Default location is the first suggested location calculated based on the logic described in Location suggestions.

When the location suggestion is not enabled for the warehouse, the Default location is the standard location set for the given warehouse on the Produmex Inventory tab of the Item Master Data of the item. If the items to move have different standard location set for the warehouse, no default location is displayed.

When creating a new SSCC the ’Warehouse: a new LUI has been created (700)’ print event will be triggered and the logistic label will be printed after the destination location had been selected.

12.4.5. Logistic unit/Items are moved

After identifying the destination location, the movement is registered and the system displays the message: Logistic unit/Items are moved. The movement will be booked as a ‘Move’.

When there are still items to move, the system goes back to the ‘Select a product’ screen. When everything was moved from the location or the selected logistic units, the system displays the message ‘No more items to move’ then goes back to the ‘Scan SSCC or location’ screen.

12.5. Receive from WHS flow

This flow is used to move stock from a warehouse that is not managed by Produmex to a warehouse that is managed by Produmex.

It uses an 'Inventory transfer request' document to move the stock between warehouses.

After having entered the quantity, the system might print the item label(s), depending on the item settings.

12.5.10. Add more products from the logistic unit

After having entered the quantity, the system will ask whether there are other products on the logistic unit that are not scanned.

If there are other products on the logistic unit, press the ’Yes’ button. Identify the products on the logistic unit by going back to the Identify product step. For finishing the process, press the ’Receive items’ button. When pressing the ’Receive items’ button the system will book the inventory transfer.

If there are no other products on the logistic unit, press the ’No’ button. When pressing the ’No’ button the system will register the item. The data of the registered items is stored in ASN tables.

Because the data of the registered items is stored in the system, it is possible to continue the flow after an abortion without booking the items.

If there were no SSCC barcodes among the scanned barcodes, or there was no label on the logistic unit, the system will generate an SSCC barcode. The system will also trigger the ’Warehouse: a new LU has been created (700)’ print event and will print the logistic label. The default report for this print event is the ’DefaultLogisticsLabel.rpt’.

If the Move all items in 1 stock transfer? option is disabled on the Receive from WHS controller, the Inventory Transfer document is created and the system returns to the Select an inventory transfer request screen.

If that option is enabled, the system goes back to the Scan the GS1 barcode screen. On this screen an additional ‘Receive items’ button is displayed. The Inventory Transfer document is only created after the ‘Receive items’ button is pressed.

12.5.11. Finish process

Continue the flow on a next logistic unit by going back to the Scan the GS1 barcode(s) step. For finishing the process, press the ’Receive items’ button.

When pressing the ’Receive items’ button the system books the inventory transfer.The system also triggers the ’Warehouse: move has been added (701)’ print event and prints the delivery document.

After having booked the items, the system goes back to the Select an order screen, and the flow can be continued with another inventory transfer request.

12.5.12. Continue the flow after an abortion

In case of quitting after the item registration, the system offers the option ’Book receipt’. Despite not booking the receipt, the flow can be continued after the registration step, because the system stores the data of the registered items in ASN tables.

If there are registered items in the system that were not booked, after the Select an inventory transfer request step the system will ask whether to remove the registered items.

When pressing the ’Remove registered items’ button, the system will remove the registered items and the flow will continue from the Scan the GS1 barcode(s) step. When pressing the right arrow key, the flow will proceed with the registered items.
