Lot TRacking

    ​We are wanting to switch the lot tracking on a number of items from a generic batch number to an expiry date.  The expiry date batch will be keyed in alpha numeric and in our testing the pick list release is not selecting the stock based on expiry but rather the year and then alpha. For example we have product with batch numbers 2019-OC-15 and 2019-SE-15 and the stock that expires in October is being released to pick first. How do I set up the system to release to pick based on expiry date on the batch number rather than the actual batch number?

    Just to confirm, what version of AX are you on?  And are you using advanced warehouse management?

    Reserving by expiry date is controlled by using FEFO reservation logic, which is defined in the Item Model Group applied to the item.


     If you enable this, your items will need to have Shelf life period in days / Best before period in days defined on the released product

    Here's definitions of all the dates on a batch when you use FEFO:
