This feature allows Sales Orders and Purchase Orders to influence stock commitment levels. You will now be able to see how much stock you have available and stock that may already be committed through Sales and Purchase Orders so you can make ordering or bottling decisions.
To see how Sales Orders affect stock commitments in vintrace, first you need to create a Sales Order. In this example, a Sales Order for a stock item 11GCZIN-STOCK is created with quantity ordered of 100 and this stock item does not have any stock available.
Upon saving the Sales Order, you will receive a warning message that you are overcommitting the stock item with details such as the quantity ordered and the available quantity. This warning will be shown every time you attempt to save a Sales Order whereby the Ordered quantity is greater than the Available quantity for the stock item.
Click on the OK button. And then navigate to the Stock Item Overview – Distribution tab of the stock item. You will now see a Committed value of 100.
In the Tasks tab of the Stock Item Overview, you will see that an entry has been created for the Sales Order with a Committed quantity of 100.
You will also be able to see the updated stock commitment from the routing information of the stock item when you perform stock dispatch.
Purchase Orders also affect stock commitment levels as well. To demonstrate this, create a Purchase Order. In this example, a Purchase Order with quantity 100 is created for stock item 12PG, which currently does not have any stock available.
To check how the Purchase Order influenced the stock commitment for stock item 12PG, go back to the Distribution tab from Stock Item Overview. There is now an On Order quantity of 100.
