As the final step of the procurement process, you receive the catalog items and place them in the stockroom or pass them to the owner. The system automatically creates a receiving slip to record the receiving action.
When you receive an item, you can specify whether you want to create a new resource for this item or update the existing catalog item. The receiving process handles each type of catalog item differently:
Consumable catalog item
When you receive a consumable catalog item to a stockroom, the system creates a new consumable catalog item or increases its quantity in the stockroom. You do not track consumable catalog items once you give them out.
When you receive a fixed asset catalog item, the system creates a new resource in the Configuration Management Database (CMDB) or updates an existing asset. You can track the fixed asset catalog item for its entire lifecycle.
