In this blogpost we are going to dive into the exciting features and capabilities of 2023 release wave 1 for the Warehouse Management module. Get ready for a sneak preview of the cutting-edge features that will revolutionize the implementation experience and streamline your warehouse operations.
In this release, we’re thrilled to showcase several major themes that will take your warehouse management to new heights. From label printing enhancements to a modernized user experience for setting up your warehouse, and even innovative methods for importing data while maintaining configuration, this release is packed with game-changing improvements.
Let’s dive in and uncover the possibilities that lie ahead in the world of warehouse management.
Warehouse groups are used to manage warehouses that all need the same configuration, such as wave templates, location directives and so on. Instead of adding configurations to individual warehouses, you create a warehouse group that applies the defined configuration to every warehouse of that group.
The setup is really easy: you create a group, include the warehouses that share the common configuration and then in the corresponding configuration you determine whether you would like to apply the settings for the specific warehouse, group or all warehouses.
One warehouse group can have an unlimited number of warehouses. The same warehouse can be included in different groups.
Benefits of this feature include:
The following table lists the pages that support the warehouse group concept. It also shows the minimum version of Supply Chain Management that is required to apply warehouse groups.
