We've been having a few issues where in our raw material stocks we have a few off cuts which end up being added to the total length of that items stock levels. It ends up stuffing us up because we see in JobBOSS there will be say 6 meter of tubing in stock, a job required one 3 meter length, uncut, however in reality we are currently holding three 2 meter length which add to that 6 meter total in the system.
Would it be possible to in raw stock be able to have individual length where we can see this, so in this instant it would say we have 6 meters in stock, however only in three 2 meter length. which would flag the item for purchasing to order another length for this job because currently, Would need to be able to be seen in Data collection when the item is being picked they might be able to also pick a specific length and pick against the specific length, which in turn should update that individual length/
Hi Robert - thanks for submitting your idea! The capability for doing this exists in the system as you can return the material as a different size/ID. Most customers will create categories such as "2-4ft", "4-6ft", etc. to indicate the returned lengths.
