Define the Subinventory source type
To automatically create move orders using min-max planning and replenishment counting, you must define the sub inventory source type at once of the following levels:
- Item Subinventory
To automatically create move orders using the kanban system, you must define the Subinventory source type at the pull sequence level.
Define approval process parameters
To require planner approval for move order requisitions, you must define two parameters at the organization level: Move Order Timeout Period and Move Order Timeout Action.
If you want to bypass the move order approval process and automatically approve move order requisitions, enter 0 days for the Move Order Timeout Period and select Automatically Approve for the Move Order Timeout Action.
You must also assign the planner who approves move order lines to the item or the organization.
You can also specify individuals to be notified if a shortage occurs.
Note: If the requested item does not have an assigned planner, the approval process is not enabled.
Define item transaction defaults
If you want to populate move order line allocations with item transaction defaults for the destination locator, you must first define the item transaction defaults.
Note: You do not need to perform this step if you specify the locator at the time you create or allocate the move order lines.
Define lot level UOM conversions
If you define a lot level conversion for a specific lot the move order quantity reflects the lot quantity to transact.
Setup Material Status
You can transact only material that permits move order transactions. You must that verify you can transact the material before you perform move orders.
