plantianIt would be unusable if there was an inventory for ever storage location.00:00
plantianFor section C there would be 30 documents.00:00
plantianActually sorry 45, there are 15 rows each with a Top, Middle and Bottom.00:01
plantianThat's just one section in the larger warehouse.00:02
cedkplantian: but you must define for each location the inventory00:03
plantianYes, so inventory is taken over a section.00:04
plantianSo all 45 locations (and products) are displayed in 1 inventory document.00:04
plantianCan I attach screenshot to Issue?00:05
cedkplantian: I don't see the issue00:05
cedkplantian: if you want00:05
cedkplantian: this is a request that I saw frequently from customers, they want to get all in one screen00:10
cedkplantian: but this is no manageable, you can not edit list with hundred lines nor with too much fields00:11
plantiancedk: I want this behavior, where the location of each line may differ -- http://www.laspilitas.com/tryton/multi-location-inventory.jpg00:11
plantiancedk: My users need to print inventory and take it into the field and fill it out and bring it back.  They don't want to print 45 different documents and then bring them back and look all 45 up again.  Keeping inventory is very tedious as it is and they would not use the system if I asked them to do that.00:12
cedkplantian: I'm wondering if you really need to get so much locations00:13
plantianQuantity of product in a single location can vary from 400 to 1.00:14
plantianSo it can be hard to still find a product at this level of granularity.00:14
cedkplantian: locations are not for finding product00:14
cedkplantian: do you put all same products together?00:15
plantiancedk: Most of the time yes, but it can be hard to move products in order to consolidate them -- here is a picture of our much smaller nursery -- http://www.laspilitas.com/s/images/stores/escondido/escondido-view.jpg00:15
plantiancedk:  Rows are separated by narrow walkways horizontally, sections are separated vertically by roads.00:17
plantianYou can see products grouped together.00:17
cedkplantian: because if you can put all in one document then you should no really need many locations00:17
plantiancedk:  Here is another example of layout -- http://www.laspilitas.com/s/images/stores/santa-margarita/nursery.jpg00:18
plantiancedk: We need many locations in order to find a specific product.  Inventory is taken over many locations at once though.00:18
cedkplantian: but more something like rack on the product00:19
plantianFor example if I said where is product X located? Then we have to look up and find location A. If location A is too big we physically cannot find the product.00:19
plantiancedk: What is rack ?00:20
cedkplantian: what you try to do is WMS but I think location is not the right tool00:20
plantiancedk: What is WMS?00:21
cedkplantian: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pallet_rack00:22
cedkplantian: WMS http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warehouse_management_system00:22
plantianplantian: What would we do with rack ?  You mean to model our inventory system after the inventory system used with racks or to actually use racks themselves?00:23
plantianI'm talking to myself ha.00:23
plantiancedk: What would we do with rack ?  You mean to model our inventory system after the inventory system used with racks or to actually use racks themselves?00:23
cedkplantian: I think you should modelise a racks in the system instead of locations00:24
plantiancedk: Okay, but a "Rack" would just be a location of type View right ?00:25
cedkplantian: no00:25
cedkplantian: but I'm still not sure00:30
plantianOh you mean as a separate model entirely.00:30
plantianIts working pretty well right now.00:31
cedkplantian: perhaps you just need a super inventory that encapsulate inventories00:31
plantianI think that was your old suggestion but it seems like a lot of work when this works really well already, with a few caveats.00:32
plantianI would auto-generate all the sub inventories, then fill them and keep them updated and the super inventory would just be some sort of proxy.00:33
plantianIt seems like many companies with large amounts of inventories would need this kind of behaviour.00:33
plantiancedk: What are view locations for ?00:46
cedkplantian: group locations01:30
