Synchronizing with node inventory
Sterling Order Management System Software reconciles inventory with that in warehouses through a regular process.
Inventory changes can occur in warehouses without Sterling Order Management System Software being immediately aware of it. For example, in the event of lost or damaged goods. Because of this, Sterling Order Management System Software needs to regularly reconcile its internal inventory picture with the inventory picture at the nodes. This process is broken down into two steps:
- Loading the inventory picture from a node
The inventory picture at the node is downloaded to Sterling Order Management System Software. That information is stored in temporary table.
- Synchronizing the Sterling Order Management System Software inventory
picture and the actual inventory picture.
The data in between the temporary table and the base inventory table is compared, and if needed, synchronized.
Once this process is complete, an agent needs to be configured and run in order to clean up the temporary tables.
