Change Location on Balance Identity for a Catch Weight Item

This document describes the internal warehouse activities associated with movements for balance ID.

The balance identity (balance ID) is the inventory record, defined by warehouse, location, item, lot, and container.

If necessary, reference the Catch Weight Management document for an introduction to the functionality available to support the concept of catch weight.

Outcome

Catch weight movement between locations is managed in 'Movement. Change Loc - Balance ID' (MMS177).

When to use

When performing movement of a balance ID inside a warehouse.

Activities in these scenarios

  1. Move part of balance ID – enter both quantity and catch weight.

  2. Move part of balance ID – enter only quantity.

  3. Move all – enter both quantity and catch weight.

  4. Move all – enter only quantity.

  5. Move all – enter catch weight only.

  6. Evaluate results in 'Balance Identity. Open Toolbox' (MWS060) and 'Stock Transaction. Display History' (MWS070).

Scenario - movements conclusions

  1. Movement can be performed by entering quantity only, quantity + catch weight or catch weight only.

  2. Movement of the final quantity and catch weight may generate a difference in catch weight.

  3. Differences are accounted for using a CWA transaction in stock-transaction history.

  4. Movements by entering quantity only moves a relative proportion of the catch weight. Move 3 of 5 => also move 3/5 * CW.
