License Plate Numbers (LPN): LPNs combine the item part number, stock location and serial/lot number into a single scanable record or number for material transactions.
Rules and Strategies: Rules and strategies control the picking, put away and cost group assignments for items in a WMSenabled organization. A strategy is a collection of rules. A rule can control where an item is put away or where an item is picked.
Consolidation and Cross Docking: Cross docking allows for material to be received and directly delivered to a shipping dock or manufacturing assembly line. Cartonization provides for box and container suggestions by item based on rules for size and weight.
Control Board: The control board allows a warehouse manager to allocate activities or tasks to a material handler. The control board also allows for the prioritization of tasks assigned to a material handler
Label Setup: You can define label formats and fields (data) needed, you can associate this with WMS rules to print the label automatically. WMS can generate xml output, but you need a 3rd party label printing/formatting tool to actually print.
Cost groups: In standard Inventory module Inventory valuation accounts are derived by subinventory setups. In WMS based on cost group rules you can have different valuations independent of subinventories.
Material Status: You can assign status to an item, lot or serial number. Each status is defined with a list of permissble transactions. Material status can enforce business rules.
