What’s the difference between warehouse status change and inventory status change in Dynamics 365?

When the items in your warehouse are no longer available for sale — or items become available for sale  the change needs to be reflected in your inventory. In this situation, users can either take advantage of the periodic tasks inventory status change, or warehouse status change. What’s the difference?

Inventory status change Warehouse status change
Can change inventory status from AVAILABLE to BLOCKED and BLOCKED to AVAILABLE per item, warehouse, license plate and batch number. Can change inventory status from AVAILABLE to BLOCKED for the entire warehouse. Can change inventory status from BLOCKED to AVAILABLE for selected items.

How do you execute an inventory status change in D365?

Navigate to the inventory management > inquiries and reports > on-hand list page where all the inventories have “inventory status: available” indicating they are available for reservation.

Inventory Status - 1

Next, navigate to warehouse management > periodic tasks > warehouse status change.

Inventory Status - 2

When warehouse status change is opened, it will be blank. Select the site, warehouse and change status to fields. In this example, inventories in “Site: 5” and “Warehouse: 51” that have “inventory status: available,” will change to blocked. Click the <change status> button.

Inventory Status - 3

An infolog will ask if you want to convert status from available to blocked. Click <yes>.

Inventory Status - 4

In this example, inventory status has now changed to blocked for "Warehouse: 51."

Inventory Status - 5

The change will now be reflected when you navigate to the inventory management > inquiries and reports > on-hand list page. You will see the inventory status is now changed to blocked and is no longer available for reservation.

Inventory Status - 6

How do you execute a warehouse status change in D365?

To change the inventory status from blocked to available, again navigate to warehouse management > periodic tasks > warehouse status change.

Inventory Status - 7

When warehouse status change is opened, it will be blank. Select the site, warehouse and change status to fields. In this example, all on hand inventories in “Site: 5” and “Warehouse: 51” that have “inventory status: blocked” will be changed to available. Click the <details> button.

Inventory Status - 8

In the status change details page, mark change field for the inventory items you need to change from blocked to available, then click the <ok> button.

Inventory Status - 9

An infolog will ask if you want to proceed with changing all selected inventory from available to blocked? Click <yes>.

 

Inventory Status - 10-1

You will see two inventory statuses listed because “Warehouse: 51” has item M9200 blocked still, but the rest of the inventories now available.

Inventory Status - 11

These changes will be reflected now when you navigate to the inventory management > inquiries and reports > on-hand list page. You will see inventory status is now changed to available for all items except M9200.

Inventory Status - 12

There’s no argument that these are challenging times for discrete manufacturers. The pandemic has brought with it a complex set of challenges, and manufacturers are facing a growing skills gap for workers, among other issues. With problems ranging from erratic supply-chain disruptions to employee shortages, charting a steady course can be harder than ever. Manufacturers need all the visibility, intelligent manufacturing processes and visibility to navigate in this business climate.
Careful management of allergens and organics is increasingly important in the food and beverage industry. Manufacturers must closely manage and track both in the production process to avoid cross-contamination, label properly, and meet the expectations of customers, consumers, and regulators. Considering the growing consumer demand for organic and allergen-free products, the payoff of investing time and resources in proper management is worth it. People are paying more attention – and a higher dollar amount – looking for specific products that meet their dietary and lifestyle preferences. If you can reliably produce products that meet those preferences, you can capture their business, build customer loyalty, and remain competitive in your market. Today, properly managing allergens and organics doesn’t have to be a complex, multi-system process. An Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) with industry-specific features can centralize key aspects of food and beverage manufacturing, saving manufacturers time, reducing risks, and helping them make consistent, quality products with every batch.
Microsoft power platform release plans and Dynamics 365 release plans introduce news features. Numerous new features have been added to the Dynamics 365 applications in this edition. These enhancements include user experience upgrades that will be enabled automatically for users in production environments beginning in October 2021.
In the food and beverage industry, managing every stage of production, from the storage of raw materials to processing, packaging, storing and shipping the final product, is even more difficult when you factor in variables such as freshness, batch control, and allergen or organic requirements.
