Warehouse management and routing

We will show you a comprehensive multi-warehouse use case that we will simply configure and demonstrate before your eyes.

First, we want to explain how simple it is to configure the different movements between and within warehouses. This will be done through routes that bundle the advanced push and pull rules. In the simplest of use cases, you won't need to know about them, but in this talk we will explain how they work in order to understand the more advanced configurations. In our demo use case, the routes can also be different for several product categories and we will need to configure some reordering rules for certain products as well.

Second, warehouses need to be operated: setting up inventory, receiving goods from purchase orders, assigning lots, putting them into stock, packing goods, delivering, executing manufacturing orders. We will explain how the bar code interface proposes operations for the warehouse operator and what happens behind the scenes when the operator takes the correct quantities and when he takes the wrong quantities. As a matter of fact, doing those simple operations can become quite complex behind the scenes as moves are split, backorders are created, pickings are force assigned, goods are returned, ... We want to explain the mechanisms behind by showing what happens in the demo.
