How is it possible to manage the follolwing:
In addition to selling its items/products, the company as well allows certain suppliers to sell items in its shops. The company is not responsible about the cost but has to manage the stock for select suppliers.
Thank you for posting on the Microsoft Dynamics Community Forum.
The Microsoft Dynamics NAV product includes the Non-Stock Item granule to help manage the sale of inventory that is not typically stocked in the warehouse. So, I would start by reviewing that material, which is found in the Trade Courseware for Dyanmics NAV 2009. The Training material is available on Partner Source and Customer Source under the Readiness & Training Link.
Because of costing challenges, especially if the inventory is stocked normally and also sold through the vendor, you may need to segregate costs fully. This would entail using a separate Location Card and the option for Average Cost set to By Item Location & Variant to keep the costs separated. The alternative would be to have a separate Item record and use Item Substitutions functionality to link like inventory. The reason being is that a Non-Stock will need to be converted to a stock Item in order to sell and buy, possibly through Drop Shipment or Special Orders, in the case of the managed vendor inventory.
I hope you find the material helpful and able to assist in resolving your question.
Its a retail company using LS Retail. Do you if Nonstock items can be used in LS as well?
I am not familiar with the details of LS Retail. That would have to be posed to either your partner or to LS Retail directly.
