Packaging is, in effect, creating a kit, then storing the created kit as stock, ie. you can create the package and Jim2 understands that the individual components have now been locked away, unavailable for another job. This then means that Jim2 knows you have packaged kits on hand for sale.
You will see some letters underlined in the field names within the header, eg. Status. Using Alt+ the underlined letter will jump you to the field beside that heading.
The pack type and the default content for the packaging is set up and maintained via the stock record.
A second packaging process is run to indicate that the building process has taken place. Jim2 will then manage serialised identification on individual packages or batch numbers on batch packaging.
The packaging process becomes part of your Jim2 workflow, where each packaging session can be monitored through defined status milestones.
At the end of the packaging process (Finish), the quantity of packaged kits will be available as stock on hand.
Because a package locks the stock, you need to unpackage before the stock will be released. You will also need to unpack the package if you need to perform a stock adjustment.
Stock Packaging is not compatible with Advanced Warehouse
