How to: Move Items in Advanced Warehousing

In advanced warehouse configurations, that is, locations with directed put-away and pick, warehouse movements between bins are performed by a senior employee preparing warehouse movements in the movement worksheet and then creating the warehouse movements for warehouse employees to perform.

To move items with the warehouse movement worksheet

  1. In the Search box, enter Movement Worksheet, and then choose the related link.

  2. Enter the warehouse movement information on the worksheet lines as appropriate.

  3. On the Actions tab, in the Functions group, there are two functions that can assist in automatically filling in the lines. The first is the Calculate Bin Replenishment function. This function uses the bin rankings to suggest replenishment for high-ranking bins from low-ranking bins. The second is the Get Bin Content function, which fills in the worksheet lines with the entire bin contents of the bin or bins you specify.

  4. On the Actions tab, in the Functions group, choose Create Movement to create a warehouse movement document which can then be registered when the warehouse movement is completed.

To register the warehouse movement

  1. In the Search box, enter Movements, and then choose the related link.

  2. Open the warehouse movement that you want to process.

  3. On lines of action type Place, specify where, which, and when to move the item in question by editing the Zone Code, Bin Code, Qty. to Handle, or Due Date fields.

    If your warehouse has been set up so the bin codes follow the physical structure of the warehouse, you can take quantities of several items from successive bulk bins and then place them in forward picking bins, which also might be close to one another.

  4. On lines of action type Take, specify in the Qty. to Handle field a part quantity of the bin content that you want to move. All other fields on lines of action type Take are read-only.

  5. To move all suggested quantities as specified in the Quantity field, on the Actions tab, in the Functions group, choose Autofill Qty. to Handle.

  6. To print the movement document, on the Actions tab, in the General group, choose Print.

  7. On the Actions tab, in the Registering group, choose Register.


If the location uses directed put-away and pick, then you cannot manually move items in or out of bins of bin type RECEIVE, because items in such bins must be registered as being put away before they are part of available inventory.
