Master Data

Product data is the master data of warehouse process. InItemMaster is used in the warehouse to identify uniquely each principal’s product in a warehouse and to input logistic information to warehouse such as measures which are used to optimize logistic processes inside a warehouse. Product identification is the key that will be used both when goods are coming in to a warehouse and when they are picked from a warehouse as defined in a sales order row data.

Purchase order processing has two interfaces. InPurchaseOrder initiates warehouse inbound process. All goods coming in must be verified against a purchase order. If purchase order doesn’t exist warehouse will do purchase order manually depending on the service agreement with a principal. Processed purchase orders are confirmed with OutReceiptConfirmation message.
