3SummaryIntegrationIn Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013, we have improved the integration between warehousing and other product areas, such as manufacturing, order processing, and service.Improved AreasAll three types of warehousing have been improvedBasic warehousing – bin mandatory with order-by-order pickingAdvanced warehousing – WMSThe combined offering of advanced and basic warehousing with all documents with bin mandatory
4Partner BenefitsImplementation is easier so partners can focus on their specific solution in warehousing, manufacturing, assembly, or service.Code is more robust and less prone to needing be debugged.
5Customer BenefitsMore flexibilty in functionality means a better match to current processes and higher productivity.Customers do not need to set inventory aside at different ”internal” areas of their plant – movement of goods between areas of consumption is easier and more visible.Allows for more acurate inventory, which allows customers to:Free up capital to allow investment of other mission critical areas.Enhance customer service.Motivate employees when they have a system that fits their requirements, is logical to understand, and easy to use.
6What are the Enhancements? Inventory movement (order-by-order locations)Defaults bin extended to machine centers and work centersFlexible output flow from manufacturing (WMS)Fully integrated assembly-to-order and assembly– to-stock)Service – shipment of service lines added to WMSRedesign of ADCS functionalityBetter integration with item tracking and reservation
7How it was changed Added a Dedicated property for bins. Refactored the calculation of quantity available to pick and total available quantity to reserve.ADCS updates replace ComCom and socketbus, and use web services instead. NAS now runs on the service tier, and database users are no longer used.Lot Numbers Per Bin FactBox uses the new query object.Several additional feature updates based on customer feedback
9Pick to Production Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 Location with Bin and Inventory Pick/Put-AwayMix of roles: Warehouse posts production consumption or production registers warehouse activities.Not able to set aside items for dedicated activities.Not able to have a document for movements (needed to use reclassifcation journal).
10Pick or Move to Production Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 Location with bin and inventory pick/put-awayNo mix of roles.Ability to set aside items for dedicated activities.Inventory movement document available for planning and handling.Process with existing inventory pick ”co-exists”.Requires separate posting of Consumption journal.
11Pick or Move to Production Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 Location with bin and inventory pick and put awayDedicated: Bin content is not available for pickDedicated bin property has been added.Bin content is available for posting, for example, sales posting removes item from any dedicated bin.You can reserve items on a dedicated bin.NB: WMS – existing functionality: Bin Type Code takes items out of ”Available to Pick Qty.”
21Service Line Integration to WMS Service OrderRelease to shipCreate Whse. ShipmentService LinesService lines defined for items are now accessible from the warehouseWarehouse ShipmentPart of outbound source documentsAfter inclusion on Warehouse Shipment, the pick process is identical to other outbound order lines, create pick, or use pick worksheet.
28Reasons for technical changes Platform changes that impacted the ADCS solutionNo support for server-side COM components:Socketbus adapter, ComComDiscontinued the concept of database usersClassic Application server => NAS on NSTGoals for refactoringSimplifying installationPerformance

30Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 Implementation True Queue optimization: Tasks get assigned to first available NST, unlike Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 round robin implementation, where tasks are slotted and might wait for a time out if waiting for a long task.
