Stockroom types

Stockroom types are categories of stockrooms.

The stockroom type has two significant characteristics.
  • Priority: indicates the order of stockrooms the parts should be sourced from. For example, if a personal stockroom (priority 2) contains the required part, the personal stockroom receives priority over the Central Stockroom (priority 7) because the part in the personal stockroom does not require delivery.
  • Shipment Required: informs the system if a transfer order needs to be created when the part is sourced from a stockroom of the given type. For example, a part in a personal stockroom does not require shipment, so no transfer order is needed.
