Online Stock management
Certain Products can be sold by length (chain, rope, etc.). The stock management of this type of Product is straight forward.
There are, however, other Products such as timber which can be cut three ways (length, width and thickness). "SOMS" manages the stock of this kind of Product automatically.
The system is capable of reading an order from a customer, check if the ordered piece already exists in your stock and if it doesn't the system will check if it can be obtained by cutting it out of another Product. "SOMS" will then create a list for you of all the Products that you can cut from to get the piece that you need. You will then select one of the Products from that list and cut the required piece out of it. "SOMS" will then automatically return the leftover piece to stock in its new sizes.
