Autodesk Prodsmart allows you to receive products and associate them to a certain ‘Purchase Order’ both through the back-office (check how to do it, here) and your mobile device, thus creating stock movements.

In order to further explain the ‘Receiving’ feature, we created a small setup from a company that sells cakes. We have received orders for 10 chocolate cakes, 30 strawberry cakes and 60 orange cakes. As a result, we want to purchase and receive the products needed to fulfill these orders.

The first step is to create the purchase orders. You can check the ones we created in the picture below.

Now, it’s time to start registering a ‘Purchase Order Receiving’. Follow the steps below to learn how to do it.

  1. On the mobile device, click in ‘Receiving’

2. Choose the ‘Purchase Order’ that you are ‘Receiving’. Let’s start with the Purchase Order for the chocolate cakes.

3. Select the product you are ‘Receiving’ - we’ll go for the sugar for now.

4. Insert the quantity you are receiving and confirm by clicking in ‘OK’. Pay attention to the receiving Unit of Measurement of the product.

5. Now you can add your Lot/Batch Number, the supplier lot, expiration date or add a comment to that product ‘Receiving’ (although these fields are not mandatory). In this case, our lot is auto generated, but it’s also possible to have it being set manually.

6. Choose the warehouse you want to receive your product in.

7. Confirm the information. Now you can ‘Add another’ if you want to receive the remaining products for this purchase order, ‘Confirm and Print Barcode’ if you want a barcode of the receiving, or just ‘Confirm’ the receiving you have performed.

If you have any questions regarding ‘Receiving’, don’t hesitate to contact us through our Live Chat or by reaching out to your account manager.
