Warehouse Overview

One of my reader have demanded a Warehouse related query, before jumping to the solution I thought to have a brief overview regarding this topic. As I have not covered this topic in my past posts, so I will be posting couple of posts on this series as and when I get some time and the answer will be in these couple of posts.

Each transactions performed using warehouse is stored in a Warehouse Register.

For each transaction or movement in the warehouse is recorded in Warehouse Entry table.

Warehouse Documents and Warehouse Journal are used to register item movements in the warehouse.

Whenever an item in the warehouse is moved, received, put away, picked, shipped, or adjusted, Warehouse Entries are registered to store the physical information about zone, bin, and quantity

The Bin Content table is used to handle all the different dimensions of the contents of a bin per item, such as unit of measure, maximum quantity, and minimum quantity.

Below is the typical Warehouse Flow:
