Additional Details

Low Stock Check

When a low stock check is triggered at stock removal, the system can perform a tolerance check before posting the inventory difference. This enhancement can improve inventory accuracy and prevents potentially incorrect inventory differences being posted.

When you enter the quantity counted after confirming a warehouse task, the system performs a tolerance check in the following ways before posting an inventory difference:
  • If the inventory difference doesn’t exceed the predefined quantity-based or value-based tolerance after stock removal, the system posts the difference for the low stock check with or without physical inventory.

  • If the inventory difference exceeds the predefined quantity-based and value-based tolerance after stock removal, the system keeps the inventory difference in the application log and cancels the creation of a physical inventory document. Additionally, the system calculates the product quantity by deducting the picked quantity, instead of using the entered remaining quantity.

Serial Number Selection in Ad Hoc Warehouse Tasks

When you create an ad hoc product warehouse task in the Create Warehouse Tasks - Product app or an ad hoc handling unit warehouse task in the Create Warehouse Tasks - Handling Units app, you can specify the serial numbers of serialized products to be moved. You can use serial numbers with the serial number requirement Serialization in Stock (C) as well as unique item identifiers (UII).

Navigation to Open Warehouse Tasks

You can navigate directly to the details of open warehouse tasks from the Create Warehouse Tasks - Product app and the Create Warehouse Tasks - Handling Units app using the Display Additional Data button.

Replenishment Calculation for Crate Parts

When the system calculates replenishment for crate parts, it takes stock that is in open handling unit warehouse tasks into account.
