Putaway
Where to store the item? What makes sense? In the back of the warehouse (never to be seen again) or in the middle of the aisle where it’s in the way? Does it make sense that only “Joe” knows where he put it? Warehouse Link eliminates the bad choices and allows visibility to where the item is located. Putaway is directed by the system and location placement is confirmed with a quick scan. Warehouse Link takes into account those “exception to the rules” and provides flexibility to move locations temporarily or permanently. Putaway activities may be controlled by ABC Velocity, Environmental Controls, Expiration Date, Item Ownership, Item for Specific Customer, Preferred Areas or Cubic Capacity. Putaway also manages replenishment with min/max quantities.
