What is the purpose of a location code and minimum order qty as they do not export?
Also, the location doesn't appear to print on a work order or customer order. The point in a location is to expedite the pull process? Maybe I a missing these features. Have Enterprise miniMRP.

The Enterprise edition of MiniMRP can track inventory in multiple locations. By "Location" we mean different sites. So, you might have a warehouse in "NY" and another in "CF". You might use "NY" and "CA" as your "locations".
MiniMrp can track inventory, purchase orders, work orders etc in those separate locations. Purchase orders created in "NY" could be prefixed with "NY".
If you were working in NY and you produced a purchase order or customer order then all of the items on that order are in your current location so an extra column on the order to tell you that the item is in NY is not really necessary.
If you mean the place where an item is stored, shelf or box number. Then in MiniMRP we refer to that as the "BIN".
and you are correct. "BIN" does not appear on a customer order. I don;t think anyone has noticed that before. Maybe something we can fix in the not too distant future.
The BIN however is exportable when you export your inventory to CSV.

"Minimum Order Quantity".
If an item appears on your shortage report and you flag the item for purchasing then MiniMRP will automatically add the item to a purchase order the next time you create a purchase order for a vendor capable of supplying that item.
The quantity that is entered automatically on the purchase order is based on that Minimum order quantity.
