LOTS/SERIAL/EXPIRY

This module allows attributes to be assigned to a product. An attribute is characteristic of a product that differentiates it from other products of the same type, such as lot number, serial number, expiry date, color, size… The attribute number appears in a field after the main product number, separated by a character delimiter such as a slash. This module tracks attributes through the warehouse and provides advanced allocation and inventory controls for attributes.

ADVANCED REPLENISHMENT

This module supports Advanced Replenishment, which is the process of requesting that inventory be replenished from overstock bins to pick bins before products are actually required to fill sales orders. Warehouses are configured to use one of two types of advance replenishment: min/max, or days on hand. Min/max replenishment is based on a predefined minimum quantity of product that must be in pick bins. Days on hand replenishment is based on a defined minimum number of days that the product must be available in pick bins. When a dispatcher runs the Advanced Replenishment function in Web Dispatch, the system issues replenishment requests for bins that are found to be below this minimum.

This module provides a tool to assign License Plates to groups of products. License Plates can contain similar or different items.  It is often convenient to track serial numbers by License Plates. Pre-pack assortments in License Plates can be allocated and picked even though the order is for the individual items.
