Enterprise attributes: defining inventory monitoring rules for an enterprise

If an item is tracked at an Enterprise's node, you can set up minimum and maximum inventory levels using inventory monitoring rules for an item. When the item reaches one of these levels, a corresponding event is raised if an action is configured. That event can then be configured to trigger an alert, if applicable.

About this task

For example, you can set a minimum quantity of 75 for a particular item. When the inventory starts to drop and reaches the minimum level of 75, you can configure the minimum action to raise the Send E-Mail action. This sends an e-mail message to notify a manager of the decreasing inventory level.)

You can add, modify, and delete inventory monitoring rules.
