Zone

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.

Zone configuration

Id

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.

Name

Each zone needs a unique name, used throughout Clougistic.

Has locations

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"):

  1. it's not possible to put away goods without GTIN (EAN/UPC) in a zone without locations
  2. it's not possible to put away goods with custom options

Volatile

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.

Default item dimensions

Used to calculate the maximum amount of items per slot on a logistic unit. It is used for picking. If product dimensions are not set, the default item dimensions are used.

Allowed Users

Only selected users are able to work in the zone.
