English term or phrase:relieve inventory
"...how to ship a part, relieve inventory, and invoice the customer."
Explanation: Accurate bills of material are essential. Many companies have sloppy bills of material, or have one bill of material in engineering and another one in manufacturing. An effective planning system requires one, common bill of material for each manufactured item and it must be completely accurate. Many work order systems relieve inventory through kit issues or "back flushing" when the work order is completed, both of which relieve inventory by complete sets of the bill of material. If the bill of material is inaccurate, inventory will be relieved inaccurately. http://www.cybor.co.nz/news/acuinv.html
A site selection option determines when Access 1000 should relieve inventory. If the host plans to issue an invoice and relieve inventory immediately upon receipt of the shipping notification, then it makes sense to have Access 1000 relieve inventory at the time it sends the shipping report to the host. On the other hand, if the invoicing function does not happen immediately, then Access 1000 can be set up to retain the inventory in a shipped status until the host notifies the system that invoicing is complete. http://www.accessdatasys.com/products/handops/ship.htm
