Connect Warehouse to Warehouse Group

This document explains how you connect a warehouse to a selected warehouse group. This allows you to place warehouses into categories (i.e. supplier, manufacturing plant, distribution center, or market).

Outcome

Warehouse groups are created as a means of categorizing the warehouse assigned to each group.

Follow These Steps

  1. Launch 'Warehouse. Connect to Whs Group' (MMS009).

  2. Enter a new ID in the 'Warehouse group' field.

  3. Select the Create option.

  4. On the E panel, select a value from the 'Node icon type' drop-down field to indicate whether the warehouse group is to be categorized as a supplier, manufacturing plant, distribution center, or market.

  5. Select the 'Build inventory' check box if the items in the warehouse/warehouse group are being managed using an engineering change order (ECO).

    Note: The Engineering Change Order Management module must be installed to enable this function.
  6. Click Next to save your changes.
