Hi all, can anyone help with the above, I want to see what the difference is between both?

    Basic is very simple. You do not need picks, shipments, receipts, or even bins for that matter.

    Advanced Warehousing turns on all the features - you need picks, shipments, receipts, put aways, bins etc.

    Advanced can also direct people to pick/put away from correct bins, plus makes suggestions to optimise storage/picking (depending on the rules you specify).

    Nav/BC allows you to select anything in-between the two, depending on business requirements.

    Personally, I think Advanced Warehousing is good for large scale operations where you have multiple "pickers" and a less "packers" - as Nav/BC segregate these roles.

    But if your "pickers" are also "packers", it may be overkill.

    Basic is good for small warehouses where the pickers are also packing.

    Advanced (officially called "Directed Pick & Put-away) gains efficiency by effectively turning warehouse control over to the computer. The computer makes all the decisions. The users simply do what the computer says. Users no longer need to decide where to put an item, or where to pick an item.

    The key point is users need to be trained and understand the computer is giving DIRECTIONS not suggestions. The users should follow those directions and not make their own decisions.
    There are no bugs - only undocumented features.
