There are three types of Parts Inventory Thresholds that you can set in Limble: Minimum and Maximum Part Quantity Thresholds, and a Stale Threshold. If any Thresholds are reached, a Task will automatically be generated and assigned to a designated user to make the necessary updates to your parts inventory.
Minimum & Maximum Part Quantity Thresholds
You can adjust the quantity threshold for a Part by selecting the Part and then selecting the “Gear Icon” to access the Part’s settings.
From here, input the Minimum Part Quantity Threshold. This threshold keeps track of how many parts you have in stock and will alert you if your stock becomes too low.
Adding a Maximum Part Quantity Threshold can ensure that your inventory doesn’t become overstocked.
Finally, you can assign which user will receive the Threshold Tasks that are triggered when a threshold is reached.
Note: If you don’t want to use a particular Threshold, you can input “-1” into the number field. Since you can’t have negative parts in your inventory, the Threshold will never be reached.
When a Threshold has been reached a Threshold Task will be created and the icon for the part will change, indicating that action needs to be taken.
Stale Threshold (Retiring Parts)
The Stale Threshold will help you to determine when parts in your inventory are outdated and can be retired or phased out of the inventory. If no one uses the part within the time limit set by the Stale Threshold, a Task is created stating that the Part has not been used within the allotted time period and should be retired from the inventory.
The process for setting the Stale Threshold is the same as setting Part Quantity Thresholds.
