    Inventory physical count on MS surface or Ipad

    Suggested by Gerald ClementNew 0
    Category: Distribution - Inventory Control

    It would be nice to be able to do a monthly physical count by lot or serial number on MS Surface, Ipads or even cell phones. (Bluetooth and USB capable scanners are widely available and compatible with tablets)

    Then compare what is counted to what the system thinks is on hand, count any missed items and do an inventory adjustment.

    We did an application like this on industrial scanners a few years ago. It was not that hard to develop but the industrial scanners were difficult to configure and had their own operating systems and software.

    A lot of users expect this to be a core capability and not a third party application...

    Item Stock Inquiry filter by date

    Suggested by Carlos Fernández-RochaNew 0
    Category: Distribution - Inventory Control

    The ability to filter by date range, the transactions displayed on the screen for the stock inquiry window. Right now you see the whole item history right away, and if you have 7-10 years of historical data on the item, it gets really slow.

    Add at least 5 user-defined fields to the Item Card (2 of them should be text fields with at least 30 characters)

    Stock Count - ability to create a second count to investigate variances

    Suggested by Wyatt BrocklebankNew 0
    Category: Distribution - Inventory Control

    Many companies want to create a second count to investigate significant variances. Ideally, users could process all items/ sites with no variances or small variances (based on dollar amount or quantities) and GP would create a second count to facilitate a closer looks at the items/ sites with significant variances.

    Increase the Numeric Range of the Weight Field in Item Maint (IV00101)

    Suggested by Tim WappatNew 0
    Category: Distribution - Inventory Control

    0.01 -> 9,999.99
    -is the current range of numbers permissible in the field.

    If you sell diverse product from nuts and bolts & tiny washers that are less than a <1 gram, up to big wooden reeled telecoms cable reels the size of a car that are 1,000kg =1,000,000 this gives you a problem.

    There is not enough range in the numbers to cover them.

    I know the example looks extreme, however this is like less than a gram to 9kg, this is not a big range. The alternative work around of being forced into extender or modified window fields for a basic attribute like this seems overkill.

    IV00101 Item Master - Add UserID to table

    Suggested by Tim WappatNew 0
    Category: Distribution - Inventory Control

    The Inventory master table has created date, modified date, but lacks user who created/modified.
    This is a very helpful field when investigating who created or edited a record without going to full access logging.

    Inventory Reconcile with Manufacturing

    Suggested by Fabrice VermeerNew 0
    Category: Distribution - Inventory Control

    When the reconcile is run and manufacturing has been installed, there are three reports which the user will be prompted to print. Let me talk through these reports as a way of explaining the processing.

    1. When manufacturing is loaded, the allocated quantity for items is set to zero.
    2. The first report is the Inventory Reconcile Report. Prior to the printing of the report, the system does the basic inventory reconcile. This includes verifying the allocated and on hand quantities within the core Great Plains application. The report should show the allocated quantities being increased from zero to the appropriate quantity to reflect the transactions within core Great Plains (modules such as Inventory, Sales Order Processing, and Purchase Order Processing would have an effect).
    3. The second report is the Picklist Reconcile Inventory Allocation Report. After the reconcile completes in the core, it switches to the additional code provided by the manufacturing series. The pick documents are read and the allocated quantity from manufacturing is used to adjust (increase) the allocations for each item.
    4. The third report is the Picklist Reconcile Report. There are a few different tables used to store the pick documents in manufacturing. The records in these tables are compared and based upon the differences, the tables may be adjusted to ensure accuracy. This process may result in a change to the quantity issued for a particular MO.

    My suggestion would be to reconcile a smaller group of items at one time an compare. For example, run it for item that begin with A-D, compare reports, run it for item that begin with E-G, compare the reports.

    Inventory reconcile when manufacturing is present needs to be more streamline, the process should happen all at once rather than having to manually reconcile 3 different reports
