Another option is combining the warehouse shipment document and order picking. In this process, a warehouse shipment document is generated from an order picking document and this document is passed on to the pickers with all the information from MS Dynamics. Based on the packing list, the picker then carries out Microsoft Navision picking for warehouse shipment.
Following the physical warehouse pick and shipment, the information about, among other things, the quantities actually picked and the picking storage bins is transferred to the Warehouse Pick document in Navision or Business Central and an order picking registration takes place.
The registration of the lines causes the lines in the warehouse shipment document to update, which can then also be recorded in MS Dynamics after it is fully processed.
Following the registration of warehouse shipment, the warehouse stock is reduced according to the item postings and the order lines in NAV or Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central are updated to the actual quantity delivered and populated with new information. The process concludes with generation of the sales delivery bill and, if applicable, the invoice.
Here, too, the issuing of printed lists and the time lag between physical provision of goods in the warehouse and registration in MS Dynamics represent a major administrative effort. Manually maintaining information about the quantities, serial numbers, storage bins, etc., as well as the downstream subsequent entry in MS Dynamics NAV/Business Central, mean there is a significant risk of things being incorrectly transferred over. Furthermore, a lack of transparency can arise if the goods are withdrawn from a storage bin different to the suggested storage bin. The employees in registration need to have sufficiently good MS Dynamics knowledge in order to be able to undertake the process correctly via a warehouse shipment document and order picking.
