Sage X3 Inventory provides a common repository for maintaining product information used in sales, purchasing, warehousing, and production. Sage X3 manages lots, serial numbers, shelf life, expiration dates, and potency. Supported costing methods include standard, average unit, FIFO, LIFO, last, lot, and order cost. Sales information referring to substitutes, supersessions, warranty periods, customer products, and packaging is also provided. Products can be handled in various units of measure including stock, sales, purchasing, and packing, and in different types such as volume and length.
Site parameters are used for flexible location numbering format definitions, as well as warehouse receiving, storage, and picking location assignments. Controls are provided to facilitate, delay, or restrict access to locations as needed. Locations can be dedicated to specific items, dynamically assigned, or used to track inventory stored at third-party sites.
Inventory Balance Snapshots
Sage X3 allows users to view stock balances by site including on-hand, reserved, available, on-order, in-transit, on backorder, and QC, with further zooms to details at the location and lot levels.
Quality Control and Sampling
Quality control features include forward and backward tracing of all QC-related transactions, as well as managing the disposition of accepted and rejected items. Both normal and lot-controlled items can be tracked from the point of origin—production or supplier—to the subsequent end user.
Inventory replenishment rules and data are maintained by product, and site to help balance customer service and inventory levels, including lead time, safety stock, reorder formulas, and firm and planning time horizons. Replenishment orders can be generated as part of MRP or to reorder buy-for-stock items separately.
Sage X3 manages all inbound, outbound, and intrasite stock movements. Receipts, shipments, intersite transfers, and returns are tightly integrated with sales and purchasing. Transactions resulting from physical count and other stock adjustments are controlled by parameter-driven entry windows, adaptable to individual user and site policies.
