Usage

At times, it may be necessary to make manual adjustments in available inventory without going through the process of a release. This could be due to a loss of some kind or perhaps inventory was pulled for research or samples.

NOTE: If the reduction in inventory is due to a true release to the client, you should follow the normal process using Transfer.

The Usage action is used to adjust existing inventory levels. This function is only used to lessen the available quantity. This is done from the perspective of the quantity that needs to be removed from the current units available. To adjust based on the units available, rather than what needs to be removed, use the Post Physical Inventory function.

To begin, from Customer Specific Inventory, select Actions > Usage

Enter the location in which you wish to adjust inventory. In most cases, this will be a warehouse location.

Once the location has been selected, you will be prompted to confirm or edit the Usage Date. This will default to the current date.

The list box will show all active inventory items for the location selected. For each item, the current available Cartons and Quantities are shown.

To adjust, double-click the item.

The Usage Quantity screen shows the following static fields:

Item – The Item Code selected

Customer Item # - If applicable, the Customer Item Number associated with the selected item.

Quantity/Carton – Based on packing information and inventory receipt activity.

Previous Cartons – The inventory balance, in cartons, prior to your current adjustment.
