Topic:   Parts/assemblies don't show up for other warehouse

By: GuestPosted on: Apr 2 2022 at 12:47:14 PM
I'm trying to create a work order for a second warehouse.

1. All tabs are closed
2. Switch to that warehouse by clicking in the lower left corner and selecting the warehouse
3. Click on "All assemblies" on the left

Nothing shows up. Same if I click on "All components"

This also seems to be preventing me from creating a work order for the second warehouse

MiniMRP holds separate inventories for different warehouses. An inventory item can exist in multiple warehouse and have different OnHand quantities in each warehouse. In you case it sounds like the inventory in your second warehouse is empty.

You can 'transfer' inventory between warehouses. You could transfer the assembly and all of the components to the other warehouse but MiniMRP can do most of that automatically.

In your first warehouse go to the list of Assemblies. To the left of each row is that little [>] button. Click that and select the option to "Adjust". You get a small window that allows you to move a quantity of the assembly to the other warehouse. Just move 1.

Now go to the other warehouse and you should see that assembly. There's no components yet. But, in that second warehouse create a work order to build that assembly.

When you now do something with the work order such as Allocate, Issue/WIP or Complete you'll suddenly have all the necessary components in that second warehouse.

But if you want everything from Warehouse#1 to appear in Warehouse#2 then in warehouse# go to All Assemblies and export to CSV. Then switch to Warehouse#2 and import that CSV

Importing CSV can be dangerous if you're not sure so best thing is to make a backup first. then do the export/import and if you end up with duplicates in the same location or screw something up you can restore the backup and try again.

But if that second warehouse is some kind of manufacturing depot then maybe just transfer the assemblies one at a time as the previous poster said as they're required just so you don't have everything in both locations

I perhaps wasn't clear enough in my problem description- by "not show up" I mean the assembly isn't even listed. So it makes it impossible to adjust the quantity or create a PO or do anything that requires clicking on the assembly. Its like the assembly doesn't even exist, which isn't true. BUT, lets say I transfer stock of an assembly to the 2nd location and transfer back, then the assembly DOES show up, with zero quantity.

Please know that I'm not support. I'm just another user trying to help you and english isn't my first language so I apologize if my explanation in my previous 'guest' post wasn't precise.

If an item or assembly is visible in Location#1 and not visible in Location#2 then you need to go back to Location#1, where it is visible, and do the move from there to copy it over to Location#2

I said in my previous post to select the 'Adjust' option. I'm sorry. The adjust option does work but it'll be less clicks if youclick the small [>] button and select the option "Move Qty to Location".

The Quantity you 'Move' can be zero so you don't need to actually move any stock to the other location. Just move quantity 0 and that'll create the part number etc in the other location.
