Inefficiencies when Assigning Active Inventory to IBLPN and Cycle Counting



Wondering if anyone else has run into this issue or knows of a work around...

We require a control number (OWMS calls this a lot number, we renamed it) for both active (UPC/Season Code) and reserve (non-UPC) parts. The UPC parts normally use the vendor specific control number, which is always the same. However, due to user error at our hubs during picking, sometimes they scan the wrong bar code, scanning the PO number instead.

Then we receive the inventory into our facilities this way and end up having multiple control numbers associated with the same SKU as well as multiple control numbers of the SKU in the same location.

Howdy, Stranger!
