Create Warehouse

This settings document explains how to create a warehouse that corresponds to your current inventory structure. (That is, warehouse type, what facility the warehouse is to be connected to etc.).

Outcome

A warehouse is created with information about warehouse type, connected facility, where it is located, whether or not an item record can be added during purchase entry, where the shipment from this warehouse is loaded etc.

The warehouse is used as a planning level for material and production. Stock zones, stock locations and items are connected to the warehouse.

Warehouses are stored in the table MITWHL.
