Elliotts's Inventory Management package allows you to keep track of inventory, which is stocked at more than one location, including the quantity of the item on‑hand, allocated and on‑order at each location.
When you first enter a new inventory item, part of the data entered is the quantity on‑hand, quantity allocated, quantity on‑order and other such data for the item's main stocking location. The Location Control File allows you to define additional stocking locations for the inventory item. There are two ways to enter this information. The first is via the add mode and the second is to create a range of inventory items at a location via the create mode. Please note that the locations must be entered in the Location File Maintenance application on the I/M Maintenance window. The create mode will take the beginning and ending items specified and create records at the new location. The new location's items will have quantities of zero and blank picking sequence and cycle count code fields. You will need to access them via change mode and edit these fields to match the availability at that location.
Select Location Control File from the pull down I/M Maintenance window. The following screen will then be displayed:
