Global inventory visibility configuration

The Global Inventory Visibility application is a collection of common components used to define inventory and capacity availability throughout the system.

In Sterling Order Management System Software, inventory is defined as physical product items against which supply and demand checks can be made. For example, refrigerators and dishwashers are considered to be inventory product items.

Capacity defines a physical location's resource availability to fulfill delivery and provided service items. For example, refrigerator delivery can be considered a delivery service item and dishwasher installation can be considered a provided service item.

In the Applications Manager, you can use the Global Inventory Visibility configuration grouping to establish inventory rules, inventory types, distribution rules, and resource capacity for your business applications.
