How do you configure default bins?

It is possible to set up default bins on the work center card or the machine center card if you want to pick to a specific bin where the item should be placed until you actually register the consumption for a production order. Let’s see how that works.

This is what happens in the video

First of all, for my scenario, I have made an open shop floor bin code, to bin code, and from bin code on the location card for my warehouse location using directed put away and pick.

So, this is my standard open production bin, but then on the work center card, I have added a to production bin code, which is another one 120.04 on my machine center 400.

This means that when I create a released production order and I will try to make a released production order like this on an item, whatever pieces, and on my warehouse location like this and I refresh the production order.

This means that my component line in here, in this example, are using a bin code that is coming from my work center and not from the location card and be aware that it’s the work center on the last operation in the routing.

So, if I’m looking at the routing for this item, my work center number 100, it’s the first one but 400 is the last one. So, it’s coming from the last work center. Let’s try to change it to see the effect.

So, if I’m opening my work center again, deleting the two production bin codes, meaning the bin code I would like to pick to and I go back on the production order and refresh it like this.

And look at my component line now, the bin code will be the default bin code from my location card.

So, the bin code is following the last operation in the routing.

The work center or machine center used for that one, that will be the bin code that the pick will be created to when you create a warehouse pick from the production order.
