More specific details, how to set each scenario up, would be helpful. For example: 1. Receiving location cannot be non-LP controlled in Dynamics AX. And even if it would allow non-LP Receiving Location, why to mention LP, non-LP scenario at all? The process doesn't change depending on that. 2. What's the difference between usage of Inventory Status, Disposition Status, Batch Disposition Code? 3. How to automate subsequent actions, depending on Inventory Status? Eg, "To be scrapped" - can it trigger Scrapping? How can that Status block from Put-away?
