Default Bin Locations

    We are on NAV 2018.   We are have turned on Bin Mandatory but not Directed Put-away and Pick

    For  bin contents we have populated each item with a default bin and the fixed bin is also checked.

    The default bins should be where we store our inventory either raw goods, sub assy's, or finished goods.

    When we produce this item it goes to the production out bin for the work center.  Then it will be put away with and Ad Hoc Move to the final location.
    Every time we produce an item it goes to the staging area and it updates the default location.  It now shows the output bin of the workcenter, instead of the warehouse bin we populated in bin contents..

    Help, this is not going to work. Is this base functionality or does our system have a bug?

    What is the output bin on the RPO?  That is where it will output to.  If you want it to output to a different bin you need to change it on the RPO.  But the items won't really be there unless someone puts them there as soon as they are finished.

    The work center has an output bin defined.  For this work center when the production order completes it goes to a truck to transfer to the warehouse across the parking lot

    The Item in the bin contents is setup a with a bin that looks like Z10A01FL  .   So in theory the output would go to the truck, then when they move it to the final location everyone is happy.  What's happening though.  When  production completes.  The item goes to CC Truck.  The default location is now CC Truck(across the parking lot).  Now when shipping receives a pick list, the system wants to take the inventory from CC truck and not z10A01FL.

    Is there a Posting area on the RPO?  This would be what you see on the screen, not a printout.  In the posting area there is a Bin Code field.  If you enter the Z10A01FL there, it should output to that bin.

    We want it to go to the pickup area in the department(output Bin)  and show in inventory in that location,  Then the material handlers will pick it up and move it.  The issue is production output changes the default bin location of the item  We don't want that to happen.

    ​We have the same problem when moving stock to our Quanrantine bin, the default bin changes.
    I looked and the code that does that is in posting code-units, so I couldn't change it.

    Your partner could alter that logic if you ask them.

    Could the setting on your location be the issue. It appears this was our fix
    Fingers crossed but it looks like we found the issue. On the location setup you define default bin selection.  our location was setup as last used.  Changed this setting to fixed bin and it appears to have fixed the issue.
