The Warehouse Management module within Dynamics AX is a great feature to configure if you want to do more with your inventory then just track it and count it. When you enable the Warehouse Management features you can start taking advantage of the in-built handheld interface, you can start tracking your workers a little more closely and assign work to them, and it also allows you to create rules on how all of the work within the warehouse is performed so that you can start optimizing and refining your warehouse operations.
Along with all of these more advanced warehouse management features, there is also a little bit more planning and setup that you need to do in order to get everything working, but that doesn’t mean that you have to over-complicate your system. If you know the basics of the Warehouse Management module, then you can start off by just configuring what you need initially, and then grow out from there as you start refining your processes.
To help you all learn the basics of this module, I have published book #18 in the Bare Bones Configuration Guide series that lays the foundation for Configuring Warehouse Management within Dynamics AX 2012, and it is now available for download. The book covers all of these areas related to Warehouse Management:
- Configuring Warehouse Management Controls
- Configuring Warehouses
- Configuring Products
- Configuring Work
- Configuring The Warehouse Management Handheld
- Configuring Workers
- Receiving Though Warehouse Management
- Picking & Shipping Through Warehouse Management
