Logistic Management System

SAP Business One for Logistics Management offers an unparalleled combination of functionality for companies with complex warehousing or large numbers of stock movements. Larger warehouses and distribution centers have long enjoyed the benefits of logistics management systems, but improving the efficiency of warehouses used to mean a large investment. Not anymore: now, small and medium sized companies can benefit from smart technology and streamlined processes that increase productivity, reduce costs and shorten fulfillment times. SAP Business One for Logistics Management makes the difference. It offers standard technology, easy installation, guided configuration and a robust platform to help control costs.

Key Benefits

  • Multi-phase source and target
  • Locations per line item Two stage bin location definition logic
  • Tracking of ‘unlocated’ document
  • Lines
  • Storage locations within warehouses
  • Consignment handling
  • Up-to four coordinates per location

Functionality

Every warehouse can have different area codes and for each area code you can have 3 additional location dimensions (X, Y, Z) for complete warehouse mapping.
Every storage location is a separate entity with its own properties, including: Location Type (pick or reserve), Location Class Code (for location capacity management), Single item/batch control, Accessibility (A, B, C), and Partner Code (locations for business partners). This enables picking efficiencies for fast/slow moving stock, storage control based on volumes, and auditable control of mixed or separate batches depending on the user determined preferences.
Storage location capacity is managed through location classes. Capacity management is optional and can be enabled separately for any storage location to match stock item volumes to available location capacities.
Storage location stocks are fully integrated with stock management in SAP Business One. This allows stock in a location to be reserved when a sales order is placed for instance, or against any planned inventory move transaction. Available to Promise figures are maintained to show stock reservations, delivering a full and accurate real time picture of your stock.
The picking process is fully integrated, and picking should be performed on storage location level. Transactions can be recorded with computer terminals or mobile devices on hand held terminals, truck mounted terminals, or mobile tablets.
Storage recommendations are calculated in the background by the system, according to customer specific rules. Three kinds of recommendations are supported: incoming, refill and picking. All recommendations are planned movements that must be validated before being processed; enabling automation efficiencies while retaining management control.
