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. If a new item is created, the information that you specify in the Receive Items dialog box is added to the item. For example, you can specify Display Name, Quantity, and Owner of the consumable catalog item. If the system detects in the stockroom the same consumable item of the same Owner, the quantity of the item is increased. The owner of the consumable catalog item can be a cost center or a department.
After the items are placed in stock, the stockroom manager can keep track of the quantity of the items in stock.
When you receive a consumable catalog item as a cost item to an existing resource, you must specify in the Received Item Line Items table the Existing Resource to which you want to add the item. A cost item is added to the cost center or the department for which the consumable item has been ordered.
