This granule provides flexibility on the posting of transactions that would result in negative inventory. Each location can be set whether to block negative inventory or not and individual users (usually super-users) can be allowed to post transactions regardless of this restriction.
Existing functionality can block negative inventory across all locations but this granule allows each location to behave differently, based on requirement. Additionally, have a setting on the user which allows them to ignore this restriction is a powerful tool for super-users.
Generating a preventative system error when a non-authorized user tries to post a transaction resulting in negative inventory will reduce data errors and improve inventory accuracy.
An accurate inventory is vital to appropriately assessing replenishment need and stock availability. Furthermore, it ensures costing is not affected by negative inventory figures.
