6.9.1. How to use routes

 

A route is a collection of procurement rules and push rules. Kiu BMP can manage advanced push/pull routes configuration, for example:

  • Manage product manufacturing chains
  • Manage default locations per product
  • Define routes within your warehouse according to business needs, such as quality control, after sales services or supplier returns
  • Help rental management, by generating automated return moves for rented products

Configuration

Procurement rules are part of the routes. Go to Inventory -> Configuration ->Settings and tick Advance routing of products using rules.

Pre-configured routes

Kiu BMP  has some pre-configured routes for your warehouses. Go to  Inventory -> Configuration ‣ Warehouses. In the Warehouse Configuration tab, Incoming Shipments and Outgoing Shippings options set some routes according to your choices.
