    Hi Sandeep,

    A. In the template field you define whether the position of bin name is a number or character where as in structure you define the exact structure of the bin name. for eg: if are planning for bin name 01-01-1 then you need to define template as NNCNNCNCCC which confirms to the system that name position 1,2,4,5, and 7 are numbers and rest character. In this case the structure should be defines as ?AA BB C? Which basically outlines the bin name where system needs to increment values for bin name generation.

    B. Then for the automatically creation of the bins, you can select in menu create online sub-menu. Through that you can create bins automatically.

    Best Regards

    Hello sandeep,

    Lets say you have three storage types with two aisles. Each storage type has three levels with 10 bins in each level. Lets name the aisles as Aisle A and Aisle B and the bin numbering range is A101-A110 for the first level of the storage type and and for the second level Lets say it is A201- the similar manner you have the seconhd aisle too numbered. Now, when You have decided on the bin structure. all you have to do is key in the structure logic in the configuration.

    IMG path: IMG-> Log Exec->warehouse management->master data->define storage bin structure

    Template : CNNNCCCCCCC ( C- is kept where you put common character to all the bins- in this case alphabet A is common for all bins in aisle A)

    Structure : AAA ( maintain this structure where you have numbers assigned to this case A101 -space AAA will be the structure. If you seperating the number range, then seperate these with diff aplphabets like BBB eg: if you want to name the structure as A101-102 then your structure would be space AAA SPACE BBB.

    Start value: A101

    End value :A110

    Increment : A001

    Hope this was helpful
