Successful inventory management is a key component in any business, and understanding the challenges and opportunities in this space is critical to developing successful and impactful processes. One of the challenges in this space with regard to Netsuite has been how to effectively manage inventory that should not be sold, or inventory that can be sold but should otherwise be segregated based on specific attributes. Traditionally, part of the challenge is how to prevent this inventory from being allocated to sales orders or how to track inventory items that share the same item number in Netsuite but may have small differences such as packaging.
