Hi everyone,We are seeking help regarding setting different safety stock amounts for different locations in Navision Classic 2009.We have multiple warehouse locations around the world and would like to increase our service levels by having a minimum amount of stock for some items that we identified at different locations. These locations are replenished from our central warehouse in The Netherlands. What happens at the moment is that we have a safety stock for an item, but this does not take into account the various locations seperately (but just sums all the inventory of the locations together). We do not want to check these items individually each week per location because this will cost us too much time. We would like to have that the requisition sheet gives us an output that the warehouse in location B/C/D should be replenished from the central warehouse at loction A trough a transfer order.
We know how the input parameters work (using lot-for-lot/fixed r.o.q, safety stock, ROP etcetera).
Is there possibility to make this work?
So, to clarify, setting safety stocks of the same item for different locations.
Use Stockkeeping (Sku's) units by location. Use the individual planning parameters by location. Then you will use the Requisition Worksheet to replenish your established min/max by location.
Thanks for your reply Alfredo. That is our goal, but we do not know how to acheive this yet. How can we set individual planning parameters by location?
Currently, we can transfer items from our main warehouse to a different warehouse location and we can track how much there are in stock at each location. However, we do not have any options to set individual parameters per location?
We would like to keep the same SKU number instead of creating different SKUs for each location, otherwise we will triple the amount of SKUs in the system.
Look at these links for guidance:
1) Setup Stockkeeping units in NAV 2009
2) Setup - Use Requisition Worksheet in NAV 2009
Hi Alfredo, thank you. I forgot that there is of course a difference between an item and a SKU.
Hopefully we can make this work now by filling in the correct parameters at the SKU-numbers.
