Use the Bin Management feature to track inventory items in warehouse locations, or bins.
For example, you can set up bin records that identify specific places within in your warehouse, such as Bin A and Bin B. Then, on an item record, you can associate the item with Bin A and Bin B. Next, when you add the item to a transaction, you can specify a bin to use. You can specify Bin A on an item receipt when you receive the item from the vendor. You can specify Bin B on a sales order when you sell the item. Your warehouse staff knows exactly where to go in the warehouse to retrieve an item needed for an order. It also tells them where to stock the item when it is received.
To use the Bin Management feature with items on transactions, you must first associate one or more bins with each item. For more details on bin preferences and setup, read Setting Up Item Records for Bins.
The basic Bin Management feature does not permit you to use bins with serial or lot numbered items or on a per-location basis.
