How to Use Parts Inventory in LucityAM…Part 5

The fifth video in our Parts Inventory series shines a light on Mobile (or rolling) Warehouses.

Lucity recognizes that warehouses can come in all shapes and sizes, and are not always made of brick and mortar. We’re talking about the warehouses that move with the work you perform: Mobile warehouses. When a warehouse in Lucity is linked with a piece of equipment, that piece of equipment can become the home base for parts used on work orders. Implementing the concept of mobile warehouses in Lucity can help streamline your allocation of parts on work orders. Let’s take a look at how to set up the mobile warehouse work flow.

How to Use Parts Inventory in LucityAM…Part 4

The fourth video in our series focuses on the toolkits and grids within the Parts Inventory module.

Lucity’s Parts Inventory module offers a great deal of flexibility to address the needs of your organization. Inside of this module are a host of data grids that allow you tap into the specific details regarding each part record in your inventory. Within these data grids are toolkits that can be instrumental in fully leveraging the power of Lucity’s parts inventorying system. Transferring parts, adjusting part quantities, and changing unit costs are just some of tasks that can be performed here. There’s a lot to cover, so let’s dig in!
