An excerpt of the functions under Business Central

  • Goods receipt for purchase order
  • Incoming goods inspection for delivery

The goods receipt for the order posts incoming goods in MS Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC). The Etiscan solution performs a mobile comparison between the order and the delivered goods. As a rule, goods receipt documents serve as a basis. However, several origin documents are also possible, e.g. purchase order, stock transfer order, returns, ...

The update in Business Central can be done in one or two steps.

On request, a separation of functions between order creation/release and inspection of the goods received can be taken into account.

Further options such as printing labels in the goods receipt, the recording of serial numbers, as well as the recording or generation from BC of batch numbers and much more is possible.

  • Goods receipt takes place on a 1-step basis, i.e. the goods are placed directly into storage at the target storage location.
  • Goods receipt takes place in 2 steps, i.e. the goods are received with this process and placed in the goods receipt storage bin defined in BC.
  • BC Scan - Goods Receipt with Business Central
  • BC Scan - Goods Receipt with Business Central: Detail
  • Putaway order

If goods receipts are initially posted to the Business Central (BC) goods receipt storage bin, the goods must be transferred to storage bins in the warehouse at a later stage.

In BC, the putaway document is used for this purpose. This document is usually created automatically when the goods receipt is posted in BC.

This process enables mobile processing of Business Central putaway documents.

BC Scan - Storage with Business Central

BC Scan - Storage with Business Central: Detail

  •  Single rearrangement (spontaneous)

The process enables the mobile transfer of an item in a certain quantity from one (storage location) storage bin to another (storage location) storage bin in one step.

The user can decide freely what he wants to transfer, since he is not bound to any order/document. However, the user can only transfer one article at a time.

The process can also be used to move goods that have already been received with the "Goods receipt for purchase order" process from the goods receipt area to the warehouse.

  • Collective stock transfer

With collective stock transfer, several items can be picked up and transferred in any order on a mobile basis. The process can be used, for example, for warehouse optimization or replenishment. This stock transfer process can also be used to move goods that have already been received with the "Goods receipt for order" process from the goods receipt area to the warehouse.

  • Stock transfer order / order stock transfer

The process enables you to process mobile Business Central (BC) stock transfer documents. BC stock transfer orders (across storage locations) or storage bin transfers (within a storage location) can serve as a basis. The documents are created on the PC in BC and can then be processed by Etiscan BC Scan mobile.

Picking enables mobile processing of Business Central (BC) picking documents.

Goods issue documents are used as a basis in BC.

Origin documents are sales orders, stock transfer orders, production orders or assembly orders. The entry into a pick can be done either via manual entry/scan, via automatic assignment or via selection from a list.

Depending on whether you want to work document-supported or paperless in picking.

  • Multi order picking

Several origin documents (e.g. sales orders) can be combined in one goods issue document and picking documents can be created from them. A picking document is loaded at the scanner and processed in one pass through the warehouse.

  • Multi Commi picking

Several picks can be selected from the list of open picks and processed in one run through the warehouse.

  • Transport container registration

For each origin document, the articles can be picked and assigned to transport containers.

Mobile registration of packages for outgoing goods inspection. Each package is scanned again during loading to ensure that the package also belongs to this goods issue and that no package is left behind by mistake.

 

The Etiscan module Packing in Business Central enables the creation and recording of any packages (boxes, pallets, wire mesh boxes, containers, etc.). Lists of contents and address labels can be created, and weight and dimensions can also be recorded.

In the packing dialog, you always have an overview of all items in the goods issue that are still unpacked, so that no item is forgotten. In Business Central, starting from the goods issue, all packages and their contents can be displayed.

With the loading control, which is also available from Etiscan, it is then possible to optionally check whether all packages have been loaded.

A coupling to dispatch service providers over the product Comsol Multiship is likewise optionally possible.

• Stock Information Article and Warehouse enables you to query and display the stock of an article and / or storage bin according to Business Central (BC) on a mobile basis.

• Article information provides further information on the article, e.g. article long text, packaging units, batches, serial number.

  • Spontaneous stock change

This is a spontaneous stock correction. The process makes it possible to change mobile stock levels without reference to another posting (e.g. order).

With reference to cause codes, articles can be added to or deducted from the warehouse stock. An authorization of the user can take place additionally for this.

via

  •  Inventory order
  • Inventory ledger sheet

This is the mobile and, if desired, paperless inventory entry.  The inventory documents are created in Business Central (BC). The articles are recorded (counted) on the mobile devices. This entry is then transferred from the mobile devices to BC. The inventory is subsequently posted in BC.

The spontaneous inventory is an alternative to the mobile inventory with predefined book sheets / orders or entries. The mobile entries are then made in an empty document. The user determines which storage locations, storage bins and articles are counted.

  • Goods issue to production (see Goods Issue / Picking)
  • Stock transfer to production (see Order Storage)
  • IST production confirmation

The process enables mobile posting of quantities and times for lines and operations of Business Central (BC) production orders. The times can be entered optionally.

  • Production confirmation Consumption

The process makes it possible to post the consumption of components to production order lines on a mobile basis.

The posting is made via the consumption ledger sheet, and the component is debited in the BC standard system from a production staging bin defined in BC, which must have the appropriate stock.

  • BDE light - our small production data acquisition

This module enables the comfortable recording of times for production orders in BC. The recording of the total time is done by start and stop button, so that the time for malfunctions, breaks and setup times can be recorded transparently - stationary or mobile.

BC Scan - Item tracking with Business Central

  • Serial no. - unique number for unambiguous tracing
  • Batches / LOT or Batch numbers - are usually assigned by the manufacturer and identify, for example, products from the same delivery of a starting material or a quantity produced on the same day.
  • MHD - best before date
  • FIFO/FEFO/LIFO - storage strategies, such as first in - first out - goods stored first are also removed first.

The printing of labels can be triggered on mobile or stationary printers located in the customer network. The label layout can be freely selected from previously stored layouts.

You can compile our function modules individually according to your needs and, depending on the requirements, also have them adapted by us, e.g. for your industry solution.

As an entry-level solution, we offer our Small Business solution, which on the one hand contains the most important functions, but is also interesting in terms of price for applications with a low number of scanners.
