You can set up replenishment hierarchies to group the stores that are replenished. The groupings can be based on the organization, size, turnover, or type of the stores.

Set up a replenishment hierarchy

  1. Click Organization administration > Setup > Organization > Organization hierarchies.

  2. Select a hierarchy.

  3. In the Name field, enter a unique name for the replenishment hierarchy.

  4. On the Purposes FastTab, click Assign purpose.

  5. In the Purposes field, select Retail replenishment, and then click Add. Then select the organization hierarchy that you created in step 3.

  6. Close the Organization hierarchy purposes form, and then, in the Organization hierarchies form, click View.

    Microsoft Dynamics AX displays the Hierarchy designer - form, where you can create a visual representation of the retail hierarchy.

  7. In the Save as draft group, click Edit.

  8. In the Modify group, click Insert, click the type of organization to which the retail hierarchy belongs, and then click the organization to insert.

  9. In the Modify group, click Insert, click Retail channel, and then click the channel to insert.

  10. If you want to save the hierarchy so that you can complete it later, click Save as draft.


    If you have finished designing the hierarchy, click Publish and close.
