Synchronizing Real-Time Product Movement to Improve Distribution Operation Productivity

True distribution effectiveness requires streamlined processes and timely access to the information necessary for moving goods at maximum speeds. Tracking technologies like radio frequency identification (RFID) eliminate manual labor, but cannot make up for awkward workflows, redundant handling, or errors. Companies must seek to improve order fulfillment and accuracy, eliminate inefficient processes and excess inventory, and enhance workload balancing and planning. Supply Chain Execution for Dynamics AX leads to improved efficiency of goods flow throughout the supply chain, from inbound receiving through outbound shipment confirmations and tracking.

This paper explores approaches like strategic slotting and putaway, flexible cycle counting, effective wave planning, configurable picking guidance, efficient packing and compliant labeling, integrated load and transportation management, and user-defined document types, among others. A recent survey found that Dynamics AX customers achieved a positive return on investment within an average of only 23 months.
