Your Use of Manufacturer’s Lots

SIMMS 2012 Inventory Management software empowers you to manage manufacturer’s lot information, from the entry of the items into the management system to its usage within the system to the issue of the items to your customers. Manufacturers assign lot numbers to stock, and when you build things in-house, you assign them lot numbers.

Within SIMMS, three methods for automatic lot selection exist: By Entry Order, By Expiration Date, or By Manual Selection.

If your system holds stock that has been in storage for a long period of time, then the By Entry Order method is for you. Thus if you get an order for 50 widgets from a customer, received fifty of them a month ago, and another fifty last week, SIMMS will select the widgets on the sales order/invoice that entered the system first — establishing a FIFO (first-in, first-out) system of selection.

If your system contains stock items with expiration dates, then the By Expiration Date method is for you. SIMMS will automatically choose the number of items you need from amongst those with the earliest expiration dates first, and then selects from the group with the next most-current expiration, then the next, and so on. If you have no items that have expiration data, then choose By Entry Order as your default because it will encourage the use of your eldest items, and thus help you keep the turnover of your stock in progress.

The By Manual Selection method is available for those who want to manually select the items you want to select at the time, based upon whatever criteria is the most important to you at the moment.
