inventory stock level based on location

Let me rephrase my question.

I have Parent Corporation G, this Corporation G owns two companies (R and O). Company R has two locations (M and W). Company O is a supplier of technical components from Asia.

Inventory is purchased by Company O as the "supplier", and sold to Company R, this stock is shipped directly to location M and W.

Inventory is only held at the two M and W locations. Company O (the supplier) is a virtual company with a virtual warehouse. This means company O purchases parts on demand and ships directly from the manufacturer to Company R's two locations (M and W).

We do it this way because the "parts" are on demand and vary from repair order to repair order. Of course we stock regularly used parts at higher levels.

Inventory SKU's are the same at both locations, but stock levels are independent at each store "M & W".

(our stores M and W are Repair Service Centers, Retail Sales, B2B, Consulting Services)

So, assuming store M normally stocks 5 widgets, and store W stocks 3 widgets, I can manage inventory independently at both locations at different price points correct? A Red Widget may sell for 20% more at Store M than it does at store W.

Company O

How should my company structure be. how should i manage my inventory, should i do transfers vs sales for store to store?

I imagine:

Company G - Company O - Company R -- Store M -- Store W

So should my warehouses look something like this?

Physical Location / Company R / Location M / Stock Physical Location / Company R / Location M / Output Physical Location / Company R / Location W / Stock Physical Location / Company R / Location W / Output Virtual Location / Company O / Stock Virtual Location / Company O / Output

But when I do it, it ends up looking like this:

Physical Locations / Company M / Stock / Company M

Corporation G and Company O do not have any physical warehouses, and Corporation G has nothing to do with inventory.

Am I on the right track here? any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

I imagine:

Company G

  • Company O

  • Company R

    -- Store M

    -- Store W

So should my warehouses look something like this?

Physical Location / Company R / Location M / Stock

Physical Location / Company R / Location M / Output

Physical Location / Company R / Location W / Stock

Physical Location / Company R / Location W / Output

Virtual Location / Company O / Stock

Virtual Location / Company O / Output


Or should it look like this: Corporation G / Company R / Location M / Stock
