The Inventory Management area of Dynamics AX allows you to track all of the inventory within your warehouses, manage all of the movements and inventory adjustments and also set the inventory policies for costing. This is also the foundation for the other modules like Procurement & Sourcing and Sales Order Management because it gives you something to receive into and also ship from which is useful to track.
In this guide we will step you through the setup of all of the basic configuration that is needed in order to get your sites and warehouses configures, show you how to tweak your products so that they can be used within the warehousing structures, how to perform common inventory transactions like cycle counts and also how to configure batch controlled and serialized items.
To help you all, I have published book #8 in the Bare Bones Configuration Guide series that lays the foundation for Configuring Inventory Management Within Dynamics AX 2012. The book covers all of these areas related to Inventory Management:
- Configuring Inventory Management Controls
- Configuring Inventory Structures
- Configuring Products for Inventory Management
- Configuring Inventory Counting
- Configuring Batched and Serialized Products
