Locate is used to find (in inventory) the product specified in an order line item. The method also finds substitutes if the product is unavailable.
This method is called when the user clicks the Locate button on the Service Order screen > Line Items > Part Locator view. The method then locates the order line items in the inventory hierarchy.
By default, the Part Locator Engine is used as a server component and not as a business service. This method is similar to the Fulfillment method except that it does not allocate or generate pick tickets.
