Blue Print - Logistics

Also refer to BluePrintInventoryManagement (which is more comprehensive, but less up to date)

To Do:

  • Be able to cancel processed send & recv shipments (and reverse the item movement)
  • Add Unique Shipment Reference Numbers
  • Generate Forms for shipments (Waybills or Goods Received Notes)
  • The receive / send / commit buttons should depend on authorisation settings
  • Adjust the commit button so that it only appears for un-fulfiled commitments
  • Expiry times for Warehouse Items need to be linked to the unique batch, not consolidated across all batches (like CTNs)
  • Aggregation and kitting/dekitting Functionality
  • From IFRC Logs procedures:
    • Base Unit -> Unit of Measure
    • Packet -> Pack
    • Pictures of Items & Packs
    • Have field for loose units
  • Create a better work-flow link from Req -> Commit -> Send -> Recv
    • Disable a single commitment to sent multiple times
  • User visible ID numbers for Received and Sent Shipments. Possibly using a site prefix and a sequential number per site to allow for easier filing of the printed (and potentially) signed forms.
  • Functionality to show requests which can be fulfilled by the items in a inventory (and perhaps visa versa).
  • Ensure that only one packet per item can have a quantity = 1 (and thus be the unit of measure for that item)
  • Auto-detect alternative items (string compare?)
  • Allow alternative items to represent a different quantity of the original item (fields in place, calculations may require some work)
