Auto-Issuing from multiple locations for a single Part

Yes it is possible.

VISUAL allows you the capability to setup a part to be automatically issued to a work order as labor is reported against an operation.  To do this there are a couple of settings that you need to have in place for this to happen.  At a minimum, you need to flag the part as being AUTO ISSUE and specify the Warehouse and Location to issue from.  These settings can be found in the PART MAINTENANCE module

Now you may have situations where you need the ability to auto issue a part from multiple locations.  From the onset it may appear that you are limited to only having one - but it is possible to configure VISUAL to have more. 

Here's how...

  1. Call up the part in PART MAINTENANCE.
  2. Go into "Warehouse Locations..." from the MAINTAIN menu to bring up all the warehouse locations assigned to the part
  3. Now your first instinct would be to check the checkbox in the Auto Issue column.  DON'T because you may find yourself in a frustrating game of "Whack-A-Mole"!  Go ahead and try - you'll see what I mean.

    A Classic!
    Instead, simply select the checkbox under the Default Part Auto Issue column (the AUTO ISSUE checkbox will check automatically).  Once you have all your auto issue locations set - save and close the window

  4. Now you have configured the part to have multiple auto issue locations.  The only step left is indicating which location VISUAL should auto issue from on your work orders and/or engineering masters.  You can do this in the MATERIAL (REQUIREMENT) card of the auto issued part in the WO/EM under the PLANNING tab.

    Infor VISUAL ERP - Work Order Requirement Material Card Location ID 
    Note: The locations available will only be those that belong to the WAREHOUSE specified on the Work Order Header.  Also, if you choose not to override the location - then VISUAL will auto issue from the Default Auto Issue Warehouse and Location in PART MAINTENANCE.
     

Now you're all set.
