Introduction

In almost any warehouse operation, mistakes will be made during receiving and shipping goods. This results in faulty stock values which need to be corrected. In the Ongoing Warehouse Management System, such corrections are called inventory adjustments.

Adjusting the stock at one location

Go to Inventory ⇒ Stock-taking. In the stock-taking page, there is a table. Find the correct row and input the total number of items at the location and then press Inv.

Let's say that the system believes that there are 50 brooms at location HC103 and 70 brooms at location HD121. When checking, we find that the correct values are actually 49 and 71, respectively.

We can enter these values into the table and then press the larger Inv. button at the top of the page:

This performs both transactions at once.

Goods found at empty locations

If you have found goods at an empty location (or, more generally, at a location which doesn't already contain the article in question), then you cannot use the table to make an inventory adjustment. Instead, click on Inventory to other warehouse location:

Then enter the article, the location, the number of found items, and then click on Save.

For instance, if we have found 33 mops at location HB115, we would enter it like so:

Checking which inventory adjustments have been made

To check which inventory adjustments have been made, go to Goods Flow ⇒ Inventory Adjustments. You can filter for transactions made during certain dates, or by certain users, and so on.

The four transactions which were made when making this guide show up like this in the transaction log:
