Case Study: WMS Implementation
BAW Business Applications GmbH – an Austrian Microsoft partner.
In 2019 BAW Business Applications GmbH was chosen by Meinhart Kabel Austria GmbH to implement Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. Meinhart Kabel Austria GmbH is an international company for cabling and equipment that distributes over 3,000 types of cables, rings, drums, spools, and others.
One of the most important and challenging aspects of the implementation was the Warehouse Management module. After the release of the new Dynamics 365 for Operations, some old features of the AX 2012 version were not ported or supported anymore. Besides, there was a requirement to implement massive extensions to WHS in order to provide improvements in managing setups (drums, rolls, rings) and dimensions with restrictions (position, weight, forklift, zone). That was a reason we had to implement numerous modifications from scratch.
Goals we have achieved
Our team has done a great job to implement several modifications from scratch without any risks. We made the process for the warehouse worker more flexible with the help of new delivery notification functionality. Our professionals extended and provided additional information on a target product for the users. Modifications made to determine a particular WMS Location to pick from or to put to.
We implemented a custom filtering on the location lookups and finding methods, which we also implemented on our custom-designed Delivery notifications.
During the course of implementation, the standard WHS solution has been customized and extended dramatically, and the main is that we’ve simplified it for users and even excluded several unnecessary steps/screens from there making the overall process intuitive.
