Better Warehouse Inventory Flow with Dynamics NAV

Email | Print

ERP or Enterprise Systems can  include functionality for better warehouse inventory flow with Dynamics NAV. This article describes proper inventory flow with Microsoft Dynamics NAV's warehouse functionality.  To understand this concept it is helpful to "walk through" the warehouse management functionality inside the system.

To support the physical handling of items on the zone and bin level, all information must be traced for each transaction or movement in the warehouse. This is managed in the Warehouse Entry table. Each transaction is stored in a warehouse register.

Warehouse documents and a warehouse journal are used to register item movements in the warehouse. Every time that an item in the warehouse is moved, received, put away, picked, shipped, or adjusted, warehouse entries are registered to store the physical information about zone, bin, and quantity.

The Bin Content table is used to handle all the different dimensions of the contents of a bin per item, such as unit of measure, maximum quantity, and minimum quantity. The Bin Content table also contains flow fields to the warehouse entries, warehouse instructions, and warehouse journal lines, which ensures that the availability of an item per bin and a bin for an item can be calculated quickly.

When item postings occur outside the warehouse module, a default adjustment bin per location is used to synchronize warehouse entries with inventory entries. During physical inventory of the warehouse, any differences between the calculated and counted quantities are recorded in the adjustment bin and then posted as correcting item ledger entries.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV with Warehouse Management functionality can help your company with the entire flow of inventory into your warehouse from receiving to picking, packing and shipping.
