Sequence group's lowest unit does not match inventory unit of the item.

  • 1.  Sequence group's lowest unit does not match inventory unit of the item.

    Posted Mar 27, 2019 11:29 AM
    Hello!

    We received the following critical message when applying a template to a new 'Released Product':

              "Sequence group's lowest unit does not match inventory unit of the item."

    What is causing this?

    (We are new to AX and in the implementation phase.)

    Thanks!

    Hi Mark,

    I have never used it in combination with Product Templates, but in general, this error means that you are trying to set a Unit sequence group ID on the Released product (Warehouse management fast tab), and the Unit sequence group you have selected does not have the item's Inventory unit as it's lowest unit.

    The Item's inventory unit can be seen on the Manage inventory fast tab.

    If you look at the Unit sequence groups you have configured (Warehouse management -> Setup -> Warehouse setup), you need to use one which has the Item's inventory unit set on the first Line.

    Essentially, it means you need to stock the item in the smallest unit which you will put on to the Unit Sequence Group. And if you're not using multiple units on your items in the Warehouse processes, your Unit sequence group need have only one line.

    Hi Mark,

    If you are using Advanced Warehousing the first thing you should do is make sure that the inventory UofM for the released product matches the lowest UofM of the Unit Sequence Group ID that is assigned to the product (WM Fast tab > Physical dimension > Unit Sequence Group ID).

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Alison

    Guy & Alison,

    Thank you both for your responses.  Alison - we are not using Advanced Warehouse at this time.

    Your suggestions were looked into and we found that we were in-line with them in the template that was being used.  We created a new released item - manually entering each field the template had and all worked fine - no error.  The record was deleted and re-created again this time applying the template - the error returned.  We were able to reproduce the error this morning at will.  When we revisited it this afternoon, all worked fine.  At this point, not really sure what changed but all is working as expected.  I will concur that the 'template' itself would not generate the message unless something was not correct in it, but that is the timing of when this error would appear.

    Thanks again for clearing up what the message means as we hadn't a clue what it meant and did not find it online from a search.

    Mark.

    Hi Mark,
    The unit sequence group ID field is specific to Warehouse management. You would get that message based on Guy's and Alison's scenarios if the Storage dimension group assigned to the item had the checkbox "Use warehouse management processes" selected. This field would do that validation on the item comparing the Inventory unit of measure to the assigned Unit sequence group ID.

    Sounds like the template for one reason or another was seeing a field that was enforcing this validation.

    Thanks
    Andrew
