Product Suspension Information

Utilities Menu -> Inventory Control -> Product Suspension Information

When non-bulk rental equipment is received into inventory in Warehouse Receiving, it can be automatically flagged as "suspended" to allow for a preparation or setup time, only if the product belongs to a Group that is set to Suspend Upon Receipt.
The suspension period is based on the receipt date plus the Days On Suspension After Product Received defined in the Company Inventory Parameters, or is immediately terminated if the equipment is rented.
It causes the product to be excluded from the Utilization analysis statistics.

This utility can only be accessed if the operator has been assigned a Security Role that allows permission to Access To Product Suspension Info in the "Miscellaneous" window of the Security Role Permissions.

Note: To automatically lift suspension using the expiry date, the program RSPFS01 must be included in the Automatic Job Scheduling to run daily.

This utility can be used to view and update the suspension dates and flags for eligible non-bulk rental equipment.

This date is maintained by the system if the suspension period expires, or if the product is rented.

If suspension is terminated because of a rental transaction such as a contract, the date Off Suspense is the date the rental was entered, not the document or renting date.
