If I move an assembly to a new location and look at the BOM it doesn't give a bin location. Even if the part (say for repair) is at another location shouldn't it be listed?

I have two sites. Actually just the room next door.
Loc_1 is manufacturing. This part of the building has all the components and manufacturing capability. Loc_2 is where assemblies are inspected, stored and eventually shipped to customers.
With that in mind it's not necessary for Loc_2 to have the full inventory of components needed to build the asembly. Loc_2 just handles the finished assembly.
So. If user in Loc_2 looks in their inventory they just see the quantity of finished assemblies. They don't have all the components that would be needed to build the assembly (because it's assumed that Loc_2 would not build the assembly).
I think this is what you mean when you say there's no BIN for the components. It's because the components don't exist at all in Loc_2 so have no BINs or QTY's in Loc_2
However. if Loc_2 did generate a work order to build the assembly it would be able to build the assembly and MiniMRP would automatically create the necessary part numbers in Loc_2. But it wouldn't know what BINs the components are in. t can't assume they're the same BIN numbers as in Loc_1.
Just to clarify something. When you process a work order in one location it will always use components from that same location. So if you moved an assembly from Loc_1 to Loc_2 and then built the assembly in Loc_2 the BOM won't show the BINs in Loc_1. It would need to create the part numbers in Loc_2 (without BINs)
Not sure if that explains it?

Jason, It answers my question. I will find a way to make it work.
