In order to be able to map an exact warehouse structure, xentral distinguishes between warehouses and warehouse shelves (also called storage bins or shelf locations). Within a warehouse you can create multiple warehouse shelves.
Storage and retrieval processes always take place on the level of the warehouse shelves, as well as stock transfers. This has the advantage that employees always know where exactly an item is located in the warehouse. At the shelf level, you also define whether the warehouse is a blocked warehouse, a replenishment warehouse or a consumption warehouse, for example.
To ensure that all similarly configured shelves in a warehouse behave in the same way, always assign an entire warehouse to a project or select them as preferred warehouses in projects.
