Warehouse Management in Microsoft Dynamics NAV

Microsoft Dynamics NAV has an extraordinary amount of features centered on a complete enterprise management solution for your entire supply chain and reporting. Warehouse management is also available in Microsoft Dynamics NAV’s functionality to complete a proper and efficient flow of inventory.  Below is a list of Dynamics NAV’s warehouse management functionality:

Automated Data Capture System (ADCS): Capture data automatically. Keep data accurate, even in a hectic environment. ADCS supports some of the workflows in the Warehouse Management Systems that enables warehouse automation.

Bin Set Up:  Easily set up and maintain your bins by defining both the layout of your warehouse and dimensions of your racks, columns, and shelves; set up and maintain your planning parameters by defining the limitations and characteristics of each bin.

Cycle Counting:  Manage cycle counting, a basic method of verifying inventory record data used to maintain and increase inventory accuracy. Set up cycle counting on the item or SKU level.

Put Away:  Enable warehouse workers to create a put away from the released order. Put Away is managed from a separate user interface when receiving items in an order-by-order environment.

Pick:  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.

Stock-Keeping Units:  Manage stock-keeping units (SKUs). Identical items with the same item number can be stored in different locations and managed individually at each location. Add cost prices, replenishment, manufacturing information, and so on, based on the location.

Warehouse Receipt: Enable warehouse workers to create a put-away from the receipt.  Warehouse Receipt is managed from a separate user interface when receiving items in a multi-order environment.

Warehouse Management Systems:  Manage items on a bin level. Receive and put away items in a bin; pick items from a bin according to a put-away template; and pick items based on the zone and bin ranking. Move items between bins using a report for optimizing the space usage and the picking process or move items manually. Warehouse instruction documents are created for the pick and put-away process, which can be carried out for sales, purchase, transfers, returns, and production orders.
