What’s new in CU13 for WMS and TMS


Cumulative update 13 for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 is now available for download on Lifecycle Services, PartnerSource and Customersource. In this blog post, we will give you an overview of the feature improvements for warehouse and transportation management. If you want more details about the release of CU13, see the Dynamics AX In-Market Engineering blog. The knowledge base article for Cumulative Update 13 is KB4032175.

 

  • Packed goods can now be brought from the packing station to the staging area or loaded directly on a truck.
  • Ability to move one item or the entire license plate (LP) although there is replenishment work behind.
  • Transfer order receiving and returns are now enabled as part of Mixed pallet receiving.
  • Guided partial cycle counting at a location has been enabled.
  • Short picking - Inventory reallocation. Ability to pick items from another location in short picking scenarios.
  • Use the demand replenishment method in the raw material picking process.
  • Correct reservation status after re-marking of WHS items with the Storage dimension enabled.
  • Timing of planned production orders when overlap jobs are enabled and the route operations use different calendars.
  • Product confirmation requested by the system before a put is completed.
  • Ability to report consumption of staged and order picked material.
  • Plan purchase orders through TMS in an inbound process when using Change management.
  • Pick (other) work order lines even if one of the order lines is blocked by demand replenishment.
  • RAF\Transfer Order integration. Finished goods can be cross docked to bay door locations providing an alternative to the put-away process where finished goods from the production output would normally be put in the Finished goods put location.
  • With a maximum weight or volume on the work template, the work split is now based on the directive unit and not on the lowest unit of measure.

 

List of feature enhancements Description of enhancements
Packed goods can now be brought from the packing station to the staging area or loaded directly on a truck. The packing station experience has been improved to ensure that it will seamlessly integrate with the rest of the workflows in the warehouse.

This is a backporting of an enhancement added to a later version of the product.

 

Ability to move one item or the entire license plate (LP) although there is replenishment work behind If the Allow movement of inventory with associated work check box on the Work users page is enabled, you can now move part of or an entire license plate that is tied to replenishment work.
Transfer order receiving and returns are now enabled as part of Mixed pallet receiving With this enhancement, it is also possible to scan the product and then update the quantity manually.

The traditional way of using the system is still supported.

Guided partial cycle counting at a location has been enabled. The changes in the hotfix include adding support to do partial cycle counting. Work line breaks are added to the cycle counting work template and partial cycle counting work will be generated during cycle counting planning.

This is a backporting of an enhancement added to a later version of the product.

 

Short picking - Inventory reallocation. Ability to pick items from another location in short picking scenarios. Items in short picking scenarios can now be picked from another location which enables a process where goods can be shipped as fast as possible. Note that this feature requires kernel 6.3.1000.1928 (KB3048540) or higher.

For more informatin, see Set up short picking item reallocation.

Use the demand replenishment method in the raw material picking process. A wave template can now be constructed for raw material picking and a demand replenishment method can be added for production orders and kanbans. The capabilities correspond to the capabilities for sales order picking and transfer order picking.
Correct reservation status after re-marking of WHS items with the Storage dimension enabled. Warehouse items with the Storage inventory dimension enabled now get the correct reservation status after re-marking.
Timing of planned production orders when overlap jobs are enabled and the route operations use different calendars Planned production orders were proposed too early when overlapping jobs were enabled and the route operations used different calendars. This issue has now been resolved so that in this situation, planned production orders are proposed duly.
Product confirmation requested by the system before a put is completed. For cluster picking, piece-by-piece picking can now be enabled to have the system request a confirmation before a put is completed.

 

For more information, see: Product confirmation for cluster picking.

Ability to report consumption of staged and order picked material. It is now possible to report consumption of material that is either reserved or picked.
Plan purchase orders through TMS in an inbound process when using Change management. Purchase orders in an inbound process can now be updated from Transportation management when Change management is activated. Previously, this would require that the entire purchase order would have to be routed through the approval steps once again.
Pick (other) work order lines even if one of the order lines is blocked by demand replenishment. The replenishment work blocking policy can now be set up to allow that users can pick (other) work order lines even if one of them is blocked by demand replenishment.

This is a backporting of an enhancement added to a later version of the product.

RAF\Transfer Order integration. Finished goods can be cross docked to bay door locations providing an alternative to the put-away process where finished goods from the production output would normally be put in the Finished goods put location. When reporting as finished, goods can now be cross docked to a bay door location based on a transfer order demand.

A transfer order that is released to warehouse will generate work of the type Transfer issue and this work can then be picked from the production output location and put to a location that is determined by the Transfer issue location directive for work.

With a maximum weight or volume on the work template, the work split is now based on the directive unit and not on the lowest unit of measure. Previously, when you set up a maximum weight or volume on the work template, work would split on the lowest unit of measure (UOM). Now work splits on the directive unit.
