Path: Material > On-Hand Adjustments
The On-hand Adjustments (OHA) function logs movement of Parts in and out of Warehouses. The following inventory adjustments (positive and negative) are tracked:
- Defective Parts
- Order Receipt
- Part Distribution
On-Hand Adjustment Specifics
Many adjustments are made automatically. For example, if material cost is included on a Work Order or if Parts are returned, WebTMA creates an On-Hand Adjustment record. For items distributed to a Work Order on an OHA using Adjustment Codes 2 or 5, the Warehouse Account # is automatically inserted in the related field on the Work Order. This applies only if the Warehouse record has a number entered in the Warehouse Account # field.
Scroll across the window to see information about each line including Freight.
If you use the Invoicing module, WebTMA checks both the quantity of items in stock as well as uninvoiced items on the virtual dock. When the items on hand are insufficient to fill an order, the system automatically issues items from the dock. The On-Hand Adjustments window uses different codes to distinguish between adjustments for in-stock or uninvoiced items.
You can also make manual adjustments at any time, but once the record is saved, it cannot be edited or deleted. To remove errors, create a new OHA record to "adjust out" the error.
You can make positive and negative adjustments within the same batch; however, you cannot adjust the same Part both negatively and positively in the same batch.
OHA code 10 is reserved for WebTMA software use and relates to internal Sales Order returns. This is not the same as returns to outside vendors using an RMA. Use the WebTMA Returns & Repairs module for external returns. When using the Invoice feature, Code 4 cannot be used for removing uninvoiced Parts since it would prevent proper matching. Also, code 25 is only created from the Receiving window and applied to Purchase Orders that are invoiced.
On-Hand Adjustment Codes
An important part of understanding the process that takes place during the On-hand Adjustment transaction is to know the behavior of adjustment codes. Some of the codes are listed at the bottom of the On-hand Adjustment Entry flyout in Add mode and are valid with manual adjustments. To see a brief list of all codes, select the Adjustment Code link on the Action Menu for the On-hand Adjustments window.
The next topics define these codes beyond a mere title.
