Set up warehouses for transfer orders

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

You can use warehouse levels to create a hierarchy that supports transfer orders between warehouses. Based on this setup, master scheduling calculates item requirements at the individual warehouse level and generates planned transfer orders from an assigned source warehouse to fulfill them.

  1. Click Inventory management > Setup > Inventory breakdown > Warehouses.

  2. Select the warehouse that you want to refill.

  3. On the Master planning FastTab, select the Refilling check box.

  4. In the Main warehouse field, select the warehouse that you want to assign as the refilling warehouse. Master scheduling calculates a transfer requirement for the selected warehouse and generates a planned transfer order from the assigned Main warehouse.


    If you clear the Refilling check box, the selected warehouse is assigned a warehouse level with regard to the Main warehouse, but the Main warehouse is not set up as a refilling warehouse.

  5. Close the form to apply the new setup.


If you want to assign a warehouse for refilling, you must first set up the warehouse as a storage dimension in the Storage dimension groups form. In this form, select the Active field and the Coverage plan by dimension field for the warehouse.
