WebUI, Material Planning & Picking – theses were the main areas of improvement in this week’s release.
Picking is getting an additional alternative to group Picking Candidates and it’s going to be able to fetch the material from different warehouses instead of needing to bring them to picking warehouse via distribution orders.
Material Planning and manufacturing has been going through a massive change in the last months, moving completely from the static way of re-calculating the material plan over and over, now to an approach with immediate update as soon as a relevant material transaction has happened.
