We're glad to announce that the much awaited Warehouse Management System Implementation Guide for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 is now available. You can download it here. Class materials and recorded sessions from training sessions in Warehouse Management System (WMS) and Transportation Management System (TMS) are also available on PartnerSource.
The purpose of this guide is to provide functional and technical guidance to users who want to implement or use the Warehouse Management System in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3. The document walks you through a case study to implement warehouse management for a fictitious company, and contains explanations of concepts and descriptions of fields used in the warehouse form. Please note that this document is a supplement to the online help and information that's available on TechNet, and does not contain documentation of every aspect of the Warehouse Management System. Additional resources and topics will be added in future versions of the document.
Any updates to the TMS System Implementation Guide? Upcoming?
I am reading it and just love it.
Is there any chance Microsoft will be adding ABC product classification by hits to its backlog?
In the distribution industry product is classified by how often it leaves the bin location. Today with AX there is not out of the box functionality to determine such a categorization. Only margin and revenue is available but this doesn't work in situations where product doesn't have good margin or generates high revenue yet it is needed to fulfill customer orders.
Often Warehouses are designed to accommodate fast movers and if this was an available out of the box feature it would be easier to see and report against.
Thanks for your input. We are aware of the benefits of categorizing products by pick frequency, and also of course the benefits of knowing the pick frequency in a warehouse. I can not say when or if this is coming to the product, but we will take your input into consideration.
