Companies most often categorize their stock items for sale into the following groups:

Consignment stocks – These are goods that you warehouse (and possibly sell) on behalf of your clients

Finished goods – These are goods ready for sale to customers

Goods for resale – These are returned goods that are salable

Maintenance supply – These are the goods that are stocked for usage within the manufacturing business.

Raw materials – These are components and materials scheduled for use in manufacturing a product

Stocks in transit – These are goods that are on their way from one location to another

Work in Process (WIP) – These are components and materials that have begun their transformation to finished goods

Companies that order, track, sell and re-order categorized items used in manufacturing need a system that enables their use in a variety of ways.
