We are in a business where we regularly handle classified and secret items. Only few resources are cleared to handle such SKUs. Information on the credentials of such employees are not in Oracle and is a constraint that needs to be considered.
What we have thought of is consolidating standard items in one LPN but keeping the secret item(s) as a separate LPN. This way, we can ensure only cleared employees handle the special material.
(1) In Oracle, the controlled items have an attribute telling us their code.
(2) Moreover, the LPN for classified item will always start with X-.
In the putaway rule, restriction 1 looks like Item Security = Classified. Restriction 2 looks like License Plate Number LIKE X-%. However, I am only wondering how to consolidate these special items separately without commingling with the ordinary ones. Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Define 2 different types of locators. One set of locators are meant for classified items and other is for secret items.
Classify the Locator using attribute to map it in the System.
Put away rules can be created by using these attributes by comparing with the item classification attribute.
So that it always suggest the locators based on the classification.
I appreciate your reply.
The issue we have is that there are two types of receiving - Primary and Secondary. At Primary Receiving, the only document that is scanned in is the Waybill. No locators are entered at this point. So, our suggestion to have designated locators with attributes identifying them as "classified" will not work.
