Topic:   Non-stock items

I am evaluating the free version of the enterprise edition. I noticed that if one creates a purchase order and adds a "non-stock item", there is no way to visualize it later in the inventory list, also in the case its part number is made identical to one of the items already created and listed in the inventory.
It is strange, because the program effectively keeps tracks of the received "non-stock goods" quantities, either in the purchase order or GRN lists, but nothing appears in the inventory. This makes impossible the idea to buy something and then add it later to the inventory. Sometimes this could be useful, especially when you are in a rush and don't have time to create all of the inventory items you need to buy, before placing the order. Thank you.

Non-Stock items is quite a new feature in MiniMRP so you can expect it to be improved in future revisions.

Non-Stock items do not exist in your inventory so can't be viewed in the inventory list. They only exist on the relevant purchase order/GRN.

I do understand what you're saying though and agree that it is confusing to give a Non-Stock item a part number 'AND' a Vendor Part Number.

So. I think it could work like this.

1. During the Purchase/Ordering process it should be possible to create new inventory items without exiting the purchase order process. (This would solve your 'In a rush' problem)

2. Non-Stock items on PO only needs a Vendor Part Number. ('Your' part number is not required because the item is not expected to ever appear in your inventory)

3. If you do enter 'your' part number then MiniMRP should check that that p/n does not already exist in your Inventory.

4. During the Goods Receiving process MiniMRP should offer the option to enter the Non-Stock item into the inventory (Create a proper invetory record for the item)

I think we should leave it as it is in the current version and have these updates in v5 towards the end of this year.
