Setup suggestions

Disposition locations determine where disposition actions can occur. When first released, a document needs to be distributed to internal and supply chain locations, and a part may require tooling at a supplier location, or must be reworked at a production location. Similarly, canceled documents need to be recalled from where they're used, and obsolete parts can be at your suppliers' warehouse, in transit, in your inventory, on your shop floor or in your product distribution channel.

Identifying your items' locations will help in assessing the cost impact of changing them.
