User Guidelines - Inventory Module

Inventories are stores of items at a site (Office, Warehouse, Hospital, Shelter, eg). The Inventory Application in Sahana Eden can be used to manage receiving, storing and sending items.

Features

Warehouses

Within the Inventory Application warehouse sites can be created. This are similar to Office sites.

Inventory Items

A list of items in the inventory. Items can be added and adjusted directly or modified through sending and receiving shipments. More information on Items can be found UserGuidelines/Supplies.

Receive

A list of received item shipment include those which have been Received and added to the inventory, and those of which are In Process and awaiting to be added into the inventory. When new shipments are received, they can be entered here. Clicking on the Received Shipment button will process that shipment, add it to the inventory and prevents the shipment from being edited (to preserve the audit trail).

Send

A list of sent item shipment include those which have been Sent and removed to the inventory and those of which are In Process and awaiting to be added into the inventory. Some item shipments will also be Received, to indicate that they have been received by another inventory. When new shipments are sent, they can be entered here. Clicking on the Send Shipment button will process that shipment, removed it to the inventory and prevents the shipment from being edited (to preserve the audit trail).
