In Microsoft Dynamics AX, an item requirement is managed as a sales order line on a single sales order that is associated with a project. This item can be immediately consumed from inventory, or it can initiate a production order or purchase order for the item. Item consumption is recorded as a posting that registers that the item was used in the project.

If necessary, an item requirement can be partially consumed.

  1. Click Project management and accounting > Common > Projects > All projects.

  2. Select or open a project for which you have created an item requirement.

  3. On the Action Pane, on the Manage tab, in the New group, click Item task, and then click Item requirement.


    On the Action Pane, on the Manage tab, in the Related information group, click Item tasks, and then click Item requirements.

  4. Select the item requirement lines that are being consumed.

  5. On the menu bar, click Posting, and then click Packing slip.

  6. In the Packing slip posting form, on the Parameters tab, in the Quantity field, select the All option.

  7. Use the fields in the Print options group to specify how you want the packing slip to be printed.

  8. On the Setup tab, enter the date for the packing slip.

  9. Click OK to post the record, print the packing slip, and transmit the required information to the shipping carrier's software.
