Warehouses and opening stocks

Starting stocks, starting costs and location when managing multi-warehouses

The stocks and initial costs of a spare part are variable in each warehouse as well as its location, minimum, optimum and maximum levels, as well as the procurement time.

The registration of stocks and initial costs is the process with which the user indicates the initial situation of his inventory to be able to start working and generate input and output movements, calculate supply, coverage, requisitions and be able to make inquiries with the values updated.

The versatility of the Spare Parts Inventory of the MP version 10 suite allows you to register your initial stock when creating spare parts and warehouses, or later it allows you to individually or mass edit the initial stock, initial cost and location of the spare parts in the different warehouses

Also for ease and agility in the implementation of the Inventory of spare parts, the user can start working with the spare parts whose initial values ​​have been captured, thus avoiding having to capture the initial values ​​of all the spare parts to start using the inventory program. It is important to note that once a movement has been made with a part, no modifications can be made to the initial records (initial stock and initial cost) of that part in the warehouse from which the movement was made.

The initial stock registration can be done from the module Spare parts and consumables and from the module Warehouses.
From the Spare parts and consumables module, they can register the initial stock of spare parts in each of the warehouses; On the other hand, in the Warehouses module, the initial existence of the spare parts contained in the selected warehouse is recorded.

To capture the initial values ​​of your spare parts from the module Spare parts and consumables and select from the submenu Spare parts and initial stock.

To capture stocks from the module Warehouses enter this module, select a warehouse in case of having multi-warehouses and then select the spare part (s) you want to edit, then select the action Spare Parts and Opening Stock found in the module's submenu.

In both cases, multiple editing will be enabled on the mesh to record the information. This screen allows you to select the spare parts that are in the warehouse by marking the selection box, modify the initial stock and modify the initial cost of the selected spare parts. It is important to note that it is not possible to modify the initial values ​​of the spare parts for which a movement has been generated and therefore the movement symbol will be marked.

Please note: The spare part is only locked in the warehouse from where the outbound or outbound movement was generated.

Warehouse location

The inventory of spare parts allows documenting the place where the spare part is physically located within the warehouse (eg aisle, shelf or level), thus facilitating its location when issuing the vouchers.

Like stocks and initial costs, the location of the spare parts in the warehouses can be edited from the Spare Parts and Consumables module, as well as from the Warehouses module. To indicate the spare parts location, select the spare parts from the grid and then select the Locations action from the submenu.

In both cases, a modifiable mesh will be opened with the location field to capture the location of the spare parts in the warehouse (s). This location can be modified at any time.
