37 Inventory management

37.3 Partial shipments or receipts

Both shipping and receiving support partial shipments and per-lot invoicing. If the vendor ships multiple lots to a single order (and charges a single invoice), you can simply call up the order and enter items into inventory on the same order. The outstanding items are automatically decremented by the amounts entered before.

To create an invoice for a received lot simply follow the process as detailed in Section 38.1 on page 38.1. If the lot is a partial shipment, the invoice will be for the current receipt by default.
