Supply Chain Management Features in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013’s Starter Pack-Part 2 of 4 posts.
Manage item charges. Include the value of additional cost components such as freight or insurance into the unit cost or unit price of an item.\
ITEM CROSS REFERENCES:
Quickly and precisely identify the items a customer is ordering on the basis of item numbers other than your own. Cross-reference information from customers, vendors, and manufacturers, as well as generic numbers, universal product codes (UPCs), and European article numbers (EANs) that can be stored and easily accessed.
Link items with the same or similar characteristics so that if a customer orders an item that is unavailable, you can offer substitute items and avoid losing the sale. Or, provide an extra service to your customer by offering lower-cost alternatives.
Manage and track serial and lot numbers. Assign serial or lot numbers manually or automatically, and receive and ship multiple quantities with serial/lot numbers from a single order line entry.
Track inventory as it is moved from one location to another and account for the value of inventory in transit and at various locations.
Manage inventory in multiple locations that may represent a production plant, distribution centers, warehouses, show rooms, retail outlets and service cars.
Offer items to customers that are not part of your regular inventory but that you can order from the vendor or manufacturer on an one-off basis. Such items are registered as nonstock items but otherwise are treated like any other item.
Enable warehouse workers to create a pick from the released order. Pick is managed from a separate user interface when shipping items in an order-by-order environment.
PURCHASE INVOICE DISCOUNTS:
Create a purchase return order in order to compensate your own company for wrong or damaged items. Items can then be picked from the purchase return order. You can set up partial return shipments or combine return shipments in one credit memo and link purchase return orders with replacement purchase orders.
Set up, post, and print purchase invoices and purchase credit memos. This granule is integrated with General Ledger and Inventory.
