Vendor Lot Traceability through all modules
Raw material Lot and Serial numbers are tracked internally and automatically as they are issued to subassemblies and finished goods. The system traces lot and serial numbers issued from raw materials to subassemblies and to finished goods. It provides what lot serial numbers have been issued to finished goods. Use Inventory—Lot Serial Inquiry to search and print report cards on lot serial numbers.
Trace/Issued: Trace from raw materials to subassemblies and finished goods. Issued for Finished Goods what lot and serial numbers were issued.
