- Simple Tracking
This is a form of auto-generated tracking which generates a unique low-digit numbers which may be recycled. This tracking type is intended to help run FIFO costing on non-tracked inventory.
For example, if you receive an item on 3 purchase orders and assign values 1, 2 and 3, LOCATE knows that 1 came in first and will assign that item as the one to pick. Once value 1 is consumed, the next oldest value will be next in line to pick. This is similar to restaurants recycling order numbers all day.
