ABOUT THE WAREHOUSE MODULE
BusinessMan ERP allows full control of your inventory and also allows allocation based on several methods. First in First Out (FIFO) is the default, Last in First Out (LIFO), Lowest Cost First (LCF) or manual.
The Warehouse Module allows you to control where these stock items are located and allows you to move items from one location to another. Multiple warehouses, bays and isles are supported. Manipulation of the stock is usually customized to the requirements of the customer, but movement and storage along with picking and dispatch would normally be carried out using an iPad based system. The framework for this is in place, but as every customer manages their stock / inventory in specific ways, we accommodate these individual needs with customization.
Isles and Bays can be names and given a type, such as “WIP” (Work in Progress) or “FG” (Finished Goods). Bays can be given roles which can be defined as needed, to use for the allocation of goods for use in Sales Orders, or specifically for Jobs, such as items for repair or inspection.
Inventory management also includes the ability to record serial numbers and batch numbers, so allocation can be managed to suit the customer. The stock system also supports the use of “Bill of Materials” (BOM) and can create internal work orders (Jobs) to manufacture or assemble items for use as finished goods for stock replenishment.
In addition, BusinessMan can deal with assemblies that are “built to order”. A job can be created to build the required order using the BOM’s and when complete, they are added to stock and immediately allocated to the Sales Order.
