This post is part of the Warehousing: Which Way to Go blog series.

In the previous weeks, I have been explaining various concepts and terminologies related to warehousing within Dynamics NAV. Here are the links to these posts:

In this post we will examine the process of receiving various inbound orders. These include Purchase Orders, Inbound Transfers as well as any Sales Returns.

Once the stock is ready, it is put-away in the main warehouse area where it is available to be picked.

Following table describes the processes in detail:
