Movement of Item Between Locations Using a Planned Move Order

This process explains how to move items between locations using planned move orders.

Outcome

Items are moved to the location where there was a shortage. This is done via a move order that can be released to a requisition order either automatically or manually.

All physical stock transactions are stored in the MITTRA file.

Movement of item between locations using a planned move order is used for filling up the smaller workstation location from the main location (buffer location).

Before you start

The prerequisites listed in Movement of Items Using a Planned Move Order must be fulfilled.

Follow these steps

The move order is created either automatically or manually . This depends on the settings in 'Settings - Location Replenishment' (CRS783).

  1. To perform an automatic release of a planned move order to a requisition order (i.e. move order):

    1. Create an order type with transaction type 92=Replenishment move order issue in (CRS200).

    2. When stock has reached the reorder point, then a move order is created automatically by the auto-start job (MMS940). This program starts (MMS126) to create the replenishment order, which in turn starts (MMS117) to write to the MGHEAD and MGLINE tables. An order is created in 'Req/Distr Order. Open' (MMS100) with the transaction type 92=Replenishment (move order).

    3. The created order is then processed as a normal requisition order. This is described in the requisition order flow. See related documents.

  2. To perform a manual release of a planned move order to a requisition order (i.e. move order):

    1. Create an order type with transaction type 92=Replenishment move order issue in (CRS200).

    2. When stock has reached the reorder point, then a planned move order is created in 'Planned Move Order. Process' (MMS170) with status 10 = Ready for print out of picking list.

    3. Select F14 on the (MMS170/B) panel to release the planned move order to a requisition order (move order).

      After the order has been released, the status on the planned order is raised to 30 = Requisition order created. An order is a created in 'Req/Distr Order. Open' (MMS100) with the transaction type 92 = Replenishment (move order).

    4. The created order is then processed as a normal requisition order. This is described in the requisition order flow.

  3. To perform a manual move order and prevent allocation from the picking location:

    1. You can manually create a move order (replenishment) in (MMS100), by using transaction type 92 = Replenishment (move order).

      This can be useful when you want to make a movement to another location than the usual one, defined in (MMS065). If automatic allocation is used, M3 automatically prevents allocation from the pick location defined in the Location field on the (MMS002/G) panel. Often this location is the location defined in (MMS065) as the location that should be refilled.
