Introduction

Sometimes you need to have a process at the warehouse to check the goods in the warehouse for defects or quality before it can be sold or used in production. This can be set up in your Ongoing WMS by using what we call Goods Operations. In goods operations you create goods operation orders that define the article items that should be controlled in some way and in which goods status they should be set to when an order is executed.

Create goods operations manually

  1. In order to create goods operation orders manually you go into the menu goods operation and select Create Order.
    View of the order list meny item of goods operations.
  2. Then you supply an ordernumber and some orderinformation and then choose the articles that should be a part of the goods operation order. Here you also supply the goods statuses that the goods should be in to be on the order (from status) and the goods status they should change to when the order is executed (to status).

    The goods statuses are created in the menu Register under the section Articles. Here you can add attributes to the different statuses such as if the goods that are recieved in the given status should be locked for delivery as in the image below.

  3. When the order rows are created you can connect article items to the order by marking the order and press Allocate in the goods operation order list. Here you then choose the article items you want to be connected to the order, i.e. the specific items that are supposed to go through some warehouse specific process or control.
