Multiple Bin Inventory

Some businesses require assignment of multiple bins to an item number and to track quantity in each.  However, not all accounting software packages have this feature built into them. The decision maker needs to weigh the cost of canned software that does not have multiple bin inventory tracking against the expense of paying for modifications to an accounting software package that permits enhancing the programming code.

Issues related to multiple bins-

1) Physical inventory count processing must be enacted for each bin of an item.

2) Receiving an item into stock must be recorded to specific bins for that item.

3) A sales order may need to be allocated from each specific bin. The bins appear on the picking slip document so that the warehouse person knows how much to pull from each one. When order is shipped, quantity must be relieved from each specific bin.
