Enhanced integration between Manufacturing and Warehouse Management, Service Management and Assembly Management delivers key benefits for customers and partners. Through enhanced integration and better utilization of warehouse functionality, Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 enables companies to ensure more accurate inventory, confidence in processes and lower stock, thereby freeing capital for other investments. Better integration also means partners can realize faster implementations and focus their resources on revenue-generating activities rather than working on integrations.
Inventory Movement is a new warehouse activity document, added for the non-Warehouse Management System locations that is used to move items to and from internal departments, such as production and service departments, where posting of the items happens as consumption, shipment, or other.
Inventory movements help streamline warehouse operations by giving warehouse employees an easier and more accurate way to register the actual movement of items and materials, without having to remember to do a journal posting. Companies gain accurate insight into inventory and stock levels, the location of items in the warehouse, and can avoid ordering materials that may are already be in stock.
Inventory movements resemble existing inventory picks and inventory put-aways, but they differ in the following ways:
- Each inventory movement includes both a pick and a put-away, which are represented by a take line and a place line.
- Inventory movements cannot be posted. They can only be registered as warehouse entries. However, the related source document is updated when an inventory movement is registered.
- Inventory movements can be made without a source document through an internal movement.
When you assemble an item to a sales order right before shipping it in basic warehouse installations, then an inventory movement is automatically created to move the components to the assembly area. This happens when the inventory pick for the assemble-to-order item is posted as sold, assembled, and shipped.
