A stock is linked to an article, a batch, a place (site, warehouse and location) and a container.

The management of physical stocks is complemented by the quality aspect: a stock can be available only if it complies with the quality rules.

Stocks of lots

In addition, you can reserve batch or article quantities per manufacturing order. Thus, a stock is always qualified by a status: in control, reserved or available. This mechanism governs the scheduling and planning of manufacturing.

Stock movements trace the history of the stock to the finest level: traceability is total. Changes in quality and ownership are also translated into movements, making pre-invoicing possible.

Stocks are always up-to-date, whether they are seeds or consumables. You can view the data on a screen. You can also use reports to view the stocks per site, product line, product, warehouse, company, seed stage, globally or in detail. In fact, you can use all the characteristics of products, articles, batches, sites...
You can manage stock operations such as moving, transfilling, containerizing, or piling.
At the end of a campaign, the remaining batches are marked as "carry-over" batches. Thus stocks are carried over when a new campaign starts.

A historical base shows the evolution of batches, movements ... throughout the past years.

With the "Business reservation", you can reserve a batch quantity for a sales agreement before any manufacturing has been started.

The property

The batch carries ownership. Ownership movements are traced: purchases/sales, whether explicit or implicit (triggered by a manufacturing order, such as bagging). Thanks to these elements, pre-billing and stock record accounting are possible.

IGus can calculate a default company according to characteristics (example: product line, generation...).

Service orders

IGus records service orders and/or delivery orders. Service orders, when they exist, drive the creation and follow-up of manufacturing orders. The seed station manager can adjust the manufacturing schedule, relying on reports that compare the quantity ordered and the quantity realized. His task is facilitated by a tool that helps him choose the batches.

Deliveries

IGus manages deliveries with or without service orders. Only available batches can be delivered.

The preparation note informs the forklift driver of the reserved goods. When the loading is finished, the operator edits a delivery note.
Returns can be entered on a specific screen.

Inventory

In iGus, each stock movement is recorded, from one end of the process to the other, regardless of the nature of the stock concerned (raw, semi-finished, finished products, consumables ...). Thus, at any time of the financial year, you know your stocks in quantity and quality.

The physical inventory, whether annual or continuous, starts and ends in iGus, on the date that suits you. The inventory-related features are grouped into one screen. And there is a specific tab for each inventory step.

First you reserve the stocks you want to inventory. This is the object of the first tab. These stocks will remain blocked until your inventory has been validated. You can select your stocks per warehouse, location and container. Thanks to this very fine level of selection, you can isolate small targeted parts of your stocks. Thus, you can, without hesitation, launch inventories on the fly: only the stock that concerns you will be blocked.

In the second tab, you compare the initial quantities, or theoretical quantities, with the quantities obtained by physical counting. These can be entered manually. They can also be saved automatically if, in the field, you use our procedural tool myGus. Inventory discrepancies are automatically displayed in orange. And when they have been checked, and / or corrected, iGus automatically displays them in green.

Then comes the time for verifications and justifications. This is the subject of the third tab: it will help you investigate your stocks. This is why this tab displays the history of all movements, in detail: movements of consumption of material, inventory movements ... You will find all the information you need about the stocks you want to justify. Thus, you will identify, easily and quickly, why you have less stock here, or too much stock there. And you will be able to justify all the differences, in the wake.
