Inventory Adjustment with multiple UoM eg. case, pack, unit

on 8/11/16, 4:38 AM 358 views

Is it possible to do a physical inventory count (Warehouse -> Inventory Control -> Inventory Adjustments) by counting cases, packs, and units individually?

For example: 

The WH/Stock location has:

x cases of 24 units each

y packs of 6 units each 

and z units

Multiple lines using the same product but a different UoM doesn't seem to work? Do I have to do a manual calculation 24x + 6y + z before capturing it? or is there a module that can allow this?

It works with multiple lines and different units of measure.  

  I was able to enter this and Validate it.  The inventory showed correctly at 500 units:  

What does "doesn't seem to work" mean?  Do you get an error?  Unexpected outcome?

Hi Ray, Thank you, this helps. However, this means that we have to use locations. If that's the case, what's the most effective way to automatically move stock to the appropriate sub-location / child location?

There is no requirement to have different locations. I could have used the same locations. Try it!!
