Simple Lot Tracking

This document explains simple lot tracking.

Simple lot tracking is where the user wants to track which lot number was sent to which customer, but does not want to track lot numbers in stock.


Settings for how to handle simple lot tracing are defined.

A lot number is entered during picking reporting. This number will be recorded in the 'Lot reference 1' field on the MITTRA table.

This process is used for tracking which lot numbers were delivered by which orders. Also, it can be used for customer orders, distribution orders and customer order returns.
