Location Setup

What is a TagNet Location Matrix?

The Location Matrix represents a hierarchy of inventoriable locations for a given facility or plant. TagNet translates raw Tag read events into an inventory location via Movement Rules, this is referred to as ‘maintaining Inventory state’. Some of your production reporting will look at this inventory state to determine where tagged parts are at any given moment and using the time in between locations as a station-to-station dwell factor, etc.

Since no two organizations have the same location schema's, there is a need to create a location schema that is tailor made to their environment. This function allows the user to create a hierarchical location schema for warehousing as well as general inventory & asset management.

With respect to warehousing, the location schema includes a location capacity feature which is reflected in the hunt rules logic (outlined in the Hunt Rules Section). This is also the foundation for the directed PICK, PUT and MOVE operations supported by the TagTrack Lift Truck application.
