Specifies the bin in the production area where components that are picked for production at this location are placed by default before they can be consumed. Items that are placed in this bin are typically set up for manual consumption posting. This means that the Flushing Method field contains Manual for basic warehousing or Pick + Forward or Pick + Backward for advanced warehousing..

Additional Information

The value in this field is automatically inserted in the Bin Code field on production order component lines in the following cases:

  • The production order component line contains this location code.
  • The first relevant production order routing line had an empty To-Production Bin Code field because the machine or work center in question is on another location or does not have a defined to-production bin code.
  • The flushing method on the production order component line is set to Manual, Pick + Forward, or Pick + Backward.

For an illustration of how components are handled in the Bin Code field on production order component lines, see Filling the Consumption Bin.

Individual work or machine centers at the location may use different bin codes if the To-Production Bin Code field is filled on the work or machine center card.

Bin codes that are set up on location cards only define a default warehouse flow for certain activities, such as components in a production department. Additional functionality exists to make sure that placing items in a certain bin makes them unavailable to other activities. For more information, see the Dedicated field in the Bins window.
