How do you post output on locations with full WMS?

If you work on a location with directed put away and pick in the location set up, meaning the full warehouse functionality and you’re going to post output from a production order, you will have to post the output first in the production journal, and then to move the item back in the inventory.

This is what happens in the video

This means there’s not a warehouse document where you can post the production output.

Meaning from the production order, you will have to enter the production journal, like on very simple location and insert the output quantity on the last line in the routing. I’ll just delete the other lines for this example.

Enter the output quantity and post the production journal. This will create an item ledger entry and a warehouse entry, and if we navigate into those, the item ledger entry will be for the output, of course, and it will default be put in the production order bin that is stated on the location cards, or on the work center set up on the last operation in the routing.

So, on the warehouse entries, I can see this is put on bin 120 and this applies to the location card or the last operation in the routing. Now the production order is done.

I’ve posted the output and I can create put away activities and movements activities to actually put it back into inventory, using either a warehouse movement created from a warehouse worksheet or an inventory put away created from a put away worksheet.
