Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations will soon feature two new replenishment methodologies included with Advanced Warehousing functionality. These new features will be available in D365 F&O v 10.0.2. and are licensed to Microsoft by Blue Horseshoe.
The 10.0.2 release of D365 F&O adds zone threshold replenishment and slotting replenishment.
The Blue Horseshoe team provided how-to tips and shared more information these two replenishment strategies at User Group Summit Europe, an annual conference for users of the Microsoft Business Applications platform.
Zone Threshold Replenishment
Zone threshold replenishment strategy allows you to evaluate an entire warehouse zone, instead of an individual location. This strategy creates work based on minimum threshold triggers and total zone allocations. Work will also trigger if the selected zone does not contain any quantity.
The slotting replenishment strategy allows you to create replenishment work at any time based on order demand. This is especially useful to keep fast-moving SKUS accessible and the warehouse more efficient.
More Replenishment Options
These two new replenishment strategies add to the options currently available in D365 F&O. They are:
Wave demand replenishment: creates replenishment work for outbound orders or loads if inventory isn't available when the wave creates work
Min/Max replenishment: uses min and max stocking limits to determine when a lotion needs to be replenished
Load demand replenishment: sums demand for multiple loads and creates replenishment work that is required in order to stock the relevant picking locations
Immediate replenishment: replenishes inventory before waves are run if allocation fails for a location directive line that has a replenishment template
Each create work differently based on inventory availability, min/max stocking limits, sum demand, and immediate need. You can read more about the different strategies Here.
There are multiple ways to manage and execute warehouse replenishment.
