Setting up a new warehouse AX 2012 R3

    What are your tips/tricks/gotchas for setting up a new picking warehouse in AX 2012 R3?  We are getting ready to set up a new warehouse to separate our drop-ship/B2C/E-comm business from our wholesale business.

    We will also need to transfer inventory from the wholesale warehouse to the E-comm warehouse.  What is simplest way to set this up?  Can this be handled with replenishment or do we need to set up transfer orders?

    Thank you!

    Hi Brandon,
    My understanding is that replenishment only works within a single warehouse. So you cannot have replenishment between warehouses. We have set up Item coverage to generate transfer order messages but we transfer inventory using warehouse transfers. We decided to use warehouse transfers because it is less steps and there is no travel time to be considered. The main reason why we setup transfers is for master planning. If you set up mininums or have sales orders on an item in your E-comm warehouse, master planning will help with your demand.
    For us, we have our Logistics and Production warehouses. We ship all items from Logistics. Sales orders, Mins and forecast are all on the Logistics warehouse. Production warehouse see all the demand through the transfer setup on the item coverage and pushed items to Logistics. I hope this helps you get started.
