    45!GnuMims is designed around the concept of one installation per site. Smaller store depo's and auxiliary sites can be supported in a single installation but for anything more one complete gnuMims installation per site is recommended. The reasoning for this is detailed bellow.
     
    89Multiple storage locations are supported but each inventory item may only be stored in one location.

    10 An early gnuMims data model actually had the ability to store an inventory item in multiple locations but this was simply way too complicated and confusing to the end user. For example a technician wanting to use an inventory item has to be aware of which bin in which store on which site he is actually booking the item out from. This results in far to many human input errors so the model and interface were simplified.

    1213Further more storing an inventory item in multiple locations on a single site is generally bad for inventory levels and the opposite of inventory consolidation which is much preferred.
