Control items issues by dimension

Hi ,

Is it possible in the AX 2009 to control the item issues dimensions wise ?

For example :

Item DVD Player - 10 PCS purchased for deparment - Finance recived at main warehouse on 1/7/12.

Item DVD Player - 10 PCS purchased for deparment - Sales recived at main warehouse on 5/7/12.

Item DVD Player - 10 PCS purchased for deparment - Admin recived at main warehouse on 9/7/12.

Now Client need to issue the material to sales deparment on 15/07/12 through inventory journal , but by mistake if user selected the another deparment - production system should not allow to post the Movement/ profit & loss journal .

Client is expecting the message system should throw the error that inventory is not available for Production deparment .Becuase purchase has not happned agains the Production depatment.

How to control this scenerio in AX 2009 ?

You have a couple of options

  1. Purchase into finance, sales and admin warehouses

  2. Setup dimensions for finance, sales and admin warehouses (although you could create a mis-match on physical and financial dimension).

Thanks for the reply ,

You mean to say , without creating the different warehouses for each deparment , system cannot control the stock issues by dimensions.

Correct ?

No because I gave you the second option of the inventory dimensions.

The financial dimensions are attributes on the reporting, they do not control the issue of an item, they report upon it.

Can you guide me about the inventory dimensions in details ?

Activate the size dimension as an example. Get them to create the departments as options against the item. Then they HAVE to define this on all transactions.
