Setup Inventory Item Settings

On each of the inventory items that will be used in the manufacturing process, there are compulsory fields that need to be configured correctly in order to successfully process a Paradigm work ticket.

  • Open Paradigm and navigate to Inventory/Processing/Inventory Items.
  • On the main toolbar change the current view presentation to Conversion Layout. All of the fields that need to be configured will appear on the grid.

The following fields on the grid are configured in Sage Evolution and synced with Paradigm:

1. Group

This is the inventory group that the item is linked to in the financial system.

2. UOM Purchase Unit
This is the unit of measure that the inventory item is purchased in.

3. UOM Stocking Unit
This is the unit of measure in which the inventory item is kept in stock as.

4. UOM Selling Unit
This is the unit of measure that the inventory item is sold in.

The Following Fields on The Grid must be Configured in Paradigm:


1. Manufactured Item Cost

2. UOM Storage Unit

This is the unit of measure in which the inventory item is stored in the warehouse as.

3. UOM WIP Unit

This is the unit of measure of the inventory item when currently in Work In Progress.

4. Batch Controlled

Set to true if batch tracking is required on the inventory item.

5. Auto Generate Serial WT

Set to true if you want a serial number to be auto-generated for manufacturing the item.

6. Raw Material
Set to true if the inventory item is issued into production as a raw material.

7. Consumable
Set to true if the inventory item is issued into production as a consumable.

8. Finished Goods
Set to true if the inventory item is issued into production as a consumable.

9. Reconciled On WT
Paradigm does not force you to manually reconcile every item used in a production run. If set to false, the quantity required as set on the bill of material will be issued. If set to true, you will be required to reconcile the actual quantity used in the production run for this inventory item.
