Here are Some Inventory Features
Following are several main features of the Inventory Module, you will find full details of these features throughout the context sensitive online help. In addition to the features listed below, the Inventory Module has features such as: Find, Comment Fields etc. Many fields have lookup buttons with a search facility so that the field data is found with only a few keystrokes. All the reports can be displayed to the screen, printed or exported to FAX, word processor, spreadsheet etc. The following is the main menu of the Inventory Module. The menu items displayed depend on the configuration setup for each user. The printers are setup so that different printers may be defined for each computer.
Products can be defined with both nominal and finish dimensions and can be defined as fixed or variable length, and as lineal metre, square metre, cubic metre, each etc. The system allows serialised assemblies (packs) and the product codes, descriptions and abbreviated descriptions are all created automatically.
By filling in the category information, the product code, product name and abbreviated description are generated automatically.
The management of assemblies (packs) is all managed through one screen. From this screen new packs are created, and each line of the assembly can contain up to twelve quantity/dimension piece counts. The assemblies can be moved from one cost centre to another, and can have their product code changed to reflect the current treatment. The packs can be disassembled into their components. Comments and charges can be added to the assemblies.
The following screen shows the addition of pieces to an assembly, and the length automatically increments as each size is added.
The Code Generator that generates the product code can be set up to suit your business model. In this example it is generating codes in the sequence: Width, Thickness, Grade, Specie, Finish, Length, Treatment, Pack type. The compulsory requirement ensures that other information is also collected.
The category codes are maintained together with their description and abbreviation, as shown for pack codes.
There are a number of reports especially for assemblies.
The reports all allow the use of selection criteria, and come in both summary and detail formats. All reports can be printed to the window (screen), or to file, or to the printer. If the report is printed to the window, many other export choices are available, such as to spreadsheet.
