The method used for processing an Inventory Quantity adjustment in StreamV is based on the serialization method used for the item.
Non-serialized and Sales Track Only items (Serial = N or Serial = S - where serial numbers do not or may not exist for the in stock items) are adjusted using the Inventory Adjustment program.
The method used for processing Quantity adjustments for serialized items (Serial=Y) depends on the current status of the serialized item being adjusted.
If the on hand quantity and the in stock serial numbers for the item are in agreement, you must use the Serial Management program to process adjustments for the item. As you create or delete serial master records for the item, the system will adjust the on hand and bin quantity for the item to keep the serial count and on hand quantity of the item in agreement.
If the on hand quantity of the serialized item are not in agreement, the Inventory Adjustment program will allow you to adjust the on hand quantity for the item – to bring it in agreement with the in stock serial detail for the item. Once the item has in stock serial numbers equal to the on hand quantity for the item in the selected warehouse, the Serial Master must be used for any quantity adjustments.
