Inventory management includes the management of batch and serial numbers for the articles. The following modules are available to the user in the warehouse and materials management module:
The overview of master items in the Inventory and Materials Management module is similar to that of the Sales and Purchasing modules, but with specific database columns for inventory management. The article mask and the editing are the same.

Furthermore, the user can mark the article as batch or serial number article. This means that the batch or serial number is queried or taken into account when making stock bookings.
