Receive, Pick And Transfer Material With And Without Bar Code Readers-Simple In And Out

A set or a group of locations is a warehouse in AMICS. This warehouse can be a large building or warehouse. Sometimes, within a warehouse, you may stock products in a set of locations based on projects. In such cases the project numbers can be considered a warehouse. In other situations material may be issued to an individual or issued to a truck and the individual names or the truck numbers can be designated as warehouse. In other words there are several ways of defining a warehouse. Contact Us and we can be your consultants on how to best utilize our warehouse methods.

Depending on your warehouse size and the number of raw material or finished goods or consignment material that you need to track, you can have one or more locations defined. If your warehouse is large, you may want to classify with aisle, section, level and bin numbers combined or if the warehouse is small you can simply create one location called stock. It is recommended that you create at least one bin location “Stock” to track the transactions. AMICS can support several thousands of alpha numeric locations and the locations can be predefined in a spreadsheet and easily imported. Some of these locations can also be defined as non-available locations (example, “Inspection” or “MRB”) and when parts are stocked in these locations, AMICS will separate this quantity from the “On hand” quantity.

Inventory can be maintained in one or more warehouses and in one or more locations.

Increase Inventory
Inventory control is to manage increase and decrease inventory. In AMICS, inventory can be increased always with a valid reason code for tracking purpose. Additional information with notes can be entered including a reference and source of incoming inventory (example “PO”, “Consignment”). If the part number is a lot or batch controlled item or a serialized item, additional screens will pop up to add such information. Increasing inventory is generally done on a purchase order or PO receipt (AMICS PO module) , after a cycle count to inventory adjust or on finishing a work order in shop floor (AMICS work order module).
Decrease Inventory
Decreasing inventory transaction is done to reduce inventory. Typically when parts are shipped (AMICS Sales order module) or when materials are issued to shop (Work in progress or WIP – AMICS work order module) or after a cycle count to adjust out. As mentioned before, additional screen pops up based on lot or batch or serial controlled. All increase and decrease transactions are logged in transactional history for further reporting.
Cycle Count  
AMICS supports cycle counting of parts. Print a report with quantities on hand and a place holder to log the physical count. Use the simple increase/decrease screens to update inventory. Use our bar code solution to easily perform cycle count or even spot check on any location and adjust as needed immediately using wireless bar code readers. Print bar code labels on standard code 39 formats on small labels and standard label sizes or even customized sizes to fit your needs.

Inventory Value  
AMICS report is a great asset. In particular, inventory valuation report shows summary of quantities with cost or optionally the detail report with locational details. These reports can be run based on user security.
Transaction log report  
One of the valuable reports is our transaction log report that shows the history of transactions. This report is used for parts traceability and for lot tracking and serial number tracking. Multiple filters allow a user to narrow down the search and provide the visibility on inventory transactions.
All transactions are based on user security, setup by the system administrator including warehouse access and viewing of inventory levels in each warehouse. If the warehouses are setup as projects, then user security can be used to segregate visibility of project inventory.
