Assigning Lot Numbers on Receipts
Lot numbers are used to track perishable goods, chemical and medical supplies, and other goods for which laws require companies to maintain accurate records and traceability to the end customer.
When you enter a purchase receipt for lot-numbered items, you can specify the quantities of items in units of measure other than base units. The system then generates lot numbers according to the lot number templates specified by the lot/serial classes the items are assigned to. The same lot number is assigned to all base units in the lot.
