Stock Control and Purchasing

Stock Control and Purchasing


Effective stock control and purchasing using the Idhammar CMMS can result in a 20–30 percent reduction in inventory valuation. Better inventory management eliminates stock outs (with automatic re-ordering) and minimises disruption and downtime with less time required at the stores counter. Real time, online stock management with the Idhammar CMMS also helps engineers avoid making multiple journeys to check, book or obtain parts.

Stock Control Module


Delivering a vital engineering view on spares and stock management the CMMS’ Stock Control module lists all materials either held in stock or identified as being part of a non-stock catalogue. Stock transactions (reservations, withdrawals, returns, balance adjustments, scrappings, back-orders, relocations, etc.) are recorded and replenishment stock can be automatically re-ordered if required. Stock checking is undertaken using either printed reports or hand held barcode readers.

Purchasing Module


Requisitions, purchase orders, deliveries, returns, invoices and credits are managed in the CMMS’ Purchasing module. User restrictions can be applied within the system to allow only authorised users to complete each step in the purchasing cycle. Purchase order formats can be adjusted locally to meet individual customer demands and either printed or emailed.
