Inventory gets feed with bunches being processed from S2. There are two ways to create inventory: 1) The barcode label of the bunch is activated directly after printing out the label. These bunches show up instantly in inventory.
assigning the buncher ID to the barcode provides accurate efficiency grades and track & tracing.
2) The barcode gets pre-printed and needs to get activated via an activation module. Only activated bunches show up in inventory.
This provides high-efficiency grades and is used for big value volume processing methods.
Reprocess requests have two stages, 1) the input of the request and 2) the physical execution of the reprocess request. To avoid that any sales rep can sell the SKU's that you requested to reprocess, we balance the inventory immediately after registering the request of the reprocessing. So even though stage 2 (the physical execution of the reprocess request) has not been done yet, the inventory is always instantly accurate to work with.
The inventory also gets affected by bunches that exit the inventory. The reason to exit a bunch is when the bunch has passed its aging (allowed amount of days of rotation) or when a person accidentally printed out a barcode with an error via S2. It's very important to keep the inventory balanced, it should be a day-to-day routine to exit the barcodes on time before sales would sell non-existing inventory.
The order protection line indicates how many days out the orders are protected, in other words, for how many days out do we apply the inventory to the orders? The fewer days out are protected, the more inventory becomes available to sell.
Note that the protection line does not affect the inventory balance, but makes available the required inventory for future sales. It frees up the inventory applied on future sales and sums up the Dispo.
Example: A client needs 4(-4) TEST UNOSOF 80CM CB 25ST PFLO bunches.
The inventory is still being applied to future orders from the post-harvest standpoint. But, make the bunches in inventory available for offers.
Protect fewer days out with low demand, and more days out in high demand.
Protection line changes are a commercial department decision only.
The order protection line can be set by admin, this shall affect all user results.
But it's also possible to get a temporary individual result on the website, this does not affect the general result for all users. By playing with this setting you can make a better commercial decision and take a team decision to reset the general setting from admin.
Any active piece is data, we can see and filter. Meaning: If data is been set in-active (the warehouse, the varieties, the SKUs), the data shall no longer be selectable in filters.
Setting a warehouse, variety, or SKU in-active in manage products, has expensive consequences if inventory physically exists.
