With Assembly in Mobile WMS, it has never been easier to register the entire assembly process, from combining several components to registering the output and adding the assembled items to the inventory.
The Assembly feature in Mobile WMS is for companies who use or are about to use the assembly function in Business Central but need a tool to simplify registrations.
In Business Central, Assembly Orders are used to create items that consist of multiple components. Assembly orders differ from other order types because they involve both output and consumption when posting. The Assembly function is ideal for companies who want to create items by combining components in simple processes but without more advanced functionality.
Mobile WMS supports both "Assemble to Order" and "Assemble to Stock"; however, the Assembly feature is intended only for "Assemble to Stock". "Assemble to Stock" is typically used when preparing for a campaign, and you want to assemble items ahead of sales and add the items to your inventory.
Using Mobile WMS, you can now register the entire assembly process directly on the floor in the assembly area utilizing only a mobile device without using the ERP client.
This video will show you how to use the Assembly Module in the Mobile WMS solution for Dynamics 365 Business Central and NAV. With the Assembly Module in Mobile WMS, you can now use a mobile device to register the entire process when combining components into one item.
An excellent example of the usage of Assembly Orders could be a company selling dinner set. They have a 12-piece dinner set consisting of 4 large plates, 4 small plates, and 4 bowls. Each component in the dinner set can be sold individually, and there is also a more extensive 24-piece dinner sets.
From a warehouse perspective, the items stored in the warehouse are:
The dinner set company has a limited set of components but would like to give their customers the possibility to order both the individual parts and the sets. They can achieve this by delaying the assembly of the sets until an order for them is placed.
Tasklet Mobile WMS allows the warehouse worker to see planned Assembly Orders and even create new Assembly Orders directly from the mobile device. The warehouse worker can easily adjust the number of items to assemble. The order may be for ten items, but this can be adjusted if there is only time to make two.
The components to pick are adjusted to match the number of items to produce. The warehouse worker can see the bins where he or she can find the individual components. At the end of the process, the warehouse worker tells the system where the assembled items are stored.
"Tasklet Mobile WMS was just value for money compared to the other WMS systems. The price, functionality, and easy implementation just all made sense. We wanted an extended arm for our NAV – that's why choosing Mobile WMS was an obvious choice."
"We have become far more efficient in the warehouse, especially when receiving goods. Before Mobile WMS, large orders could take up to two days to receive. Now, we can do the same work in as little as 2-4 hours."
"We increased our production with 25% the year we implemented Tasklet, and our container production is up 200% because we are more organized and efficient."
"We have experienced a significant error reduction in all areas, including receiving and picking, and this has resulted in us now having a warehouse where both quantity and bin location of the individual items are correct."
"Tasklet Mobile WMS is necessary for us to run our warehouse. Scanning everything and getting the features for receiving items is crucial in managing a warehouse as ours and has enabled us to take our business to the next level."
"Mobile WMS makes a vital difference in our daily work. Having everything scanned helps our staff a lot. We move a lot of items around during a day, and it’s really efficient if you need to find items – it’s so quick and easy to look up where an item is located."
"For us to be up and running so quickly and working so well is almost a miracle."
