Creating your facilities is part of the configuration performed by a System Administrator for your opentaps system. Creation of a new facility is accomplished using a section of the system which is located at the following address on your opentaps server:
/facility/control/login (Example of the address might be this type of URL: https/your_server_name:port_number/facility/control/login).
There is an end-user method, that does not require System Administrator assistance, for creating a backup warehouse facility which is described in Backup Warehouses.
To create a new (primary or backup) warehouse facility proceed as follows,
* Using your system URL, open the /facility/control/login page and log in to the system * The "Facility Manager Application" screen opens * The screen displays the Facilities List of all your current facilities (stores and warehouses). * Click: [Create New Facility] the Facility (ID:) screen opens with a blank ID ** Select the Facility Type ID from the drop down box = "Warehouse" ** Enter or look up the Owner = a unit of your company, or a Supplier who is listed in your system under Purchasing > Suppliers Tab ** Optionally enter a Default Weight Unit ** Select Default Inventory Item Type either serialized on non-serialized ** Supply a Name for your new facility ** Optionally enter a Square Footage value for the facility ** Enter a Description if desired ** Enter the Default (lead time) Days To Ship from this facility after a request. * Click: [Update] to create the facility
No other entries are required in this section of the system, at this time.
