The layout of OUT screen is very simple too! This is the default (preset) layout. If you feel the layout of this screen is NOT suitable or NOT fit to your current operation. You can change it according to your preference or process.


Let say previously we have stored 20 copies of “MS Windows Vista Business”.  Now, assume that we have an order of 5 copies of “MS Windows Vista Business” which is ready to be delivered to customer.  Here are the steps to perform the OUT operation:

Step 1 Click “Inventory > OUT”.

Step 2 Select “MS Windows Vista Business” from item code’s drop down and click “Chronos Search” (Fig. 2)

There are two locations having “MS Windows Vista Business”. Besides location codes, additional useful information displayed to enable and assist warehouse operator to perform their job better. Such information includes:

  1. Serial No
  2. UOM
  3. Required Qty (how many you wish to take out)
  4. Available Qty (how many are available)
  5. Lock Qty (how many have been hold or locked due to certain reasons)
  6. Expiry Date
  7. and etc. For other columns name, just right click on the header name and then select ‘Column Chooser’. Others additional columns name will be available. To have them appear in the Stock Result screen, just drag the name out into it.

NOTE: If the items are locked, you can’t retrieve it. You must unlock first before any retrieval can be performed.

Step 3 The Available Qty for both locations = 10. You can retrieve 5 copies from any location. The listing sequence is following FIFO approach since you have configured this item in Settings > Item > Master.

If you wish to retrieve it from location “Racking1-L1-C1”, here are the steps:

a)   Click the row with location code “Racking1-L1-C1”.
