Is a follow-on activity to a purchase order. It forms the basis for updating the financials and inventory records and can trigger warehouse management and quality management processes.
With the warehouse management system, you can control the goods receipt and goods issue processes at a physical level. Goods receipts are possible from purchase order, inbound deliveries (advanced shipping notice), stock transport orders, or from production orders. Goods receipt begins the putaway process, which is supported by different advanced strategies.
Determination of External Demands
Determines the data describing a demand for a material that is procured externally. This data includes the quantity that is required, the release-to-supplier date of the demand, the goods receipt date for the delivery, and the location to which the material has to be shipped.
Advanced Shipping Notification
Comes from the vendor and contains the exact materials, quantities, and the delivery date with reference to a purchase order. This document becomes the Inbound Delivery in the receipt process.
Delivery Monitor Provides an overview of deliveries in working processes. Gives an overview of the workload in different areas, for example shipping, transportation, or invoicing, while also allowing you to collectively process documents that have the same selection criteria. Specialists in different execution areas of the organization can use this tool to gain a quick overview of their workload, drill down to single documents, and trigger follow-up activities.
Gives the warehouse an overview of stocks located on trailers, trucks, or railcars in the yard. Sequencing
functions decide which stock should be received into the warehouse at which point in time. Yard Management also manages the vehicle from the check-in to check-out, including in-yard activities such as sealing, weighing, and directing the vehicle to a door or parking place within the yard. Registration of the start and finish of loading or unloading activities is also supported. Yard Management is integrated with Mobile Data Entry.
Should the delivered goods turn out to be faulty or damaged, you can return either the entire or partial quantity to the supplier. In the case of an existing goods receipt, you can return either parts of single items or all items to the vendor.
