Defining Relationships Between Inventory Locations (End User)

The Relationships view shows the relationship between a selected inventory location and other inventory locations. If you use multiple inventory locations, then relationships between inventory locations are useful for automating inventory replenishment and order fulfillment. A relationship can be physical and hierarchical (for example, a shelf in an aisle) or logistical (for example, replenishment of inventory or fulfillment of orders).

This task is a step in Process of Managing Service Inventories.

To define the relationship between inventory locations

  1. Navigate to the Inventory screen.
  2. Drill down on the Name field for a selected inventory location, and click the Relationships view tab.
  3. Create a new relationship record, and complete the fields as appropriate.
