Zones arrange goods based on specifications for storing (put away) and release (pick). Consider different zones based on the level of release efficiency. A warehouse can be split into zones.
To show Zones, click on a Warehouse in the tree system > design.
The zone identifier is a mandatory part of the location used in Clougistic. Each printed label in a warehouse to identify the location contains the zone. Example: Zone-Aisle-Rack-Shelf-Bin.
The zone identifier is the number generated by Clougisitc found in front of the name. In the sample below the id for zone picking is 1.
Each zone needs a unique name, used throughout Clougistic.
It's possible to create a zone with or without locations. The standard process to put away and releasing goods is a zone with locations. An example of a zone without locations is a store or showroom. There are restrictions to put away goods in a zone without locations (if this option is set to "no"):
Goods stored on locations in a volatile zone are immediately picked when allocated. This zone has in comparison with a none volatile zone, no check on partial delivery and delivery date for the picking job. Goods not valid for shipping, from a volatile zone, will always be stacked.
