Part warehouses in AyaNova are a location that contains it's own inventory of Parts.
This might be a building, a service vehicle, anything that makes sense for your business.
It is not necessary to create multiple warehouses, AyaNova always has a Default part warehouse available.
Inventory must be turned on with the "Use inventory" global business setting in order to use the Part warehouses feature.
