Incoming Material Inventory Benefits
Incoming Material Inventory Function and Use
Incoming material inventory allows receiving material into ASRS, shelf, drawer, or other storage locations. Part numbers are defined in storage location(s) dedicated for their storage. Picks of material are made against inventory and the system determines the best location(s) from which to retrieve parts. Restocking orders are generated from material depleted. Orders can be transmitted via paper documentation or via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Value Added Network providers.
Incoming Material Inventory Features
Physical locations are described in the application database. This allows graphical diagrams to illustrate any type of part storage and pick locations.
Material storage areas can be subdivided by physical location with different personnel responsible for operation in those areas.
Individual storage locations can be divided further, if required. For instance, drawers can have defined inserts of various sizes.
When a part is defined, the type and size of storage required is also defined. This allows the application to utilize the database of physical locations to suggest appropriate storage locations.
Parts can be mapped to commodity manager organizations, which are responsible for restocking the material. Commodity manager organizations can be mapped to reorder methods - such as paper, e-mail, EDI, etc.
Audit trails are provided for material receipts, picks, and inventory adjustments. Material receipts are tied to a receiving slip. Pick orders are tied to a user defined charge code. All transactions are tied to employee.
The system will prompt employees through counting inventory and track exceptions to stored counts. Inventory can be driven by location or part numbers. An inventory run can also be restricted to those parts from a single supplier, part list, or manual entry.
