When the order is processed purchase orders are automatically generated by vendor. Via catalog link items are sorted to one or more purchase orders. So if one design contains items from multiple manufacture catalogs multiple purchase orders will be generated.
Purchase orders may be communicated to the manufacture via EDI, email or XML document upon receipt the location for the staged cabinets will be updated into the system giving the user instant access to where an order is located in the warehouse. Picking documents will print with the staged inventory locations. The physical inventory process allows for counting both the staged inventory and stocked inventory.
