Moving items between shelves, storage areas, rooms

For changing the location of an item:

  2. Or open the Stock lot Details page and click Move stock item Move stock item in the Storage locations section.

When creating a new lot, it is possible to define where items are located. If the location is left undefined:

  1. The location of the items is set to the item's default storage location.
  2. If the default storage location is undefined, the location is the first location set in Stock -> Stock settings -> Storage locations.

For adding a new location, open the Storage location drop-down menu and click on Add new storage location, or pre-define the Storage locations at Stock -> Stock settings -> Storage locations.

Serial numbers traceability

If the Item is tracked by serial numbers, then these serial numbers are tracked together with their stock lot number. 

When serial numbers are entered in the Stock lot details, the quantity must be equal to the number of items in the stock lot. 

Serial numbers can be entered: 

  1. individually, by keyboard input or barcode scanning;
  2. all at once, by copying them from a Notepad or an Excel file and pasting them into the first serial number field. The software will place each number in its own field.

Incoming quality control of parts and products

  • The stock lot needs to be inspected in Procurement -> Inspection after which the approved quantity will be in status Received, and unapproved quantity will be in status Rejected.

  • repaired, by creating a Service order in the rejected stock lot's details;
  • written off at Stock -> Write-offs.

Stock lot label, lot barcode

It is possible to print labels to identify items from different stock lots (batches). The labels for stock lots can be printed by clicking Print label Print label at
  • the Stock -> Stock lots page,
  • the Purchase Order, where the parts were procured.
  • the Manufacturing order, where the products were manufactured.

The standard label contains the following information:

  • Your company name;
  • stock lot number;
  • part number;
  • part description;
  • the quantity of the stock lot;
  • printing date;
  • the unique stock lot barcode, if the Enterprise function Barcodes is turned ON.

The label's width is 3.55" (90 mm). The height is 1.85" (47 mm) without the lot barcode and 2.25" (57 mm) with the lot barcode.

If the barcode is scanned, then the resulting action depends on the page you are currently on:

  1. at My Production Plan -> MO details page, when reporting materials consumed in production:
    if there are parts that are booked from that lot, the Consume stock item page is opened (same as when the Consume Consume button is clicked), where the worker can confirm the amount that was consumed;
  2. at any other page: the stock lot details page is opened.
