Inventory status


ION shows all part instances on the inventory screen even if they been consumed (installed, kitted) or scrapped. This allows for maximum traceability of parts as they move through the factory. Additionally, ION creates "inventory" as early as possible in the process, which is why inventory is created for runs and purchases before they are completed.

In order to manage this and allow you to see what inventory is physically available, ION uses an inventory status. The inventory status is calculated based on relationships in ION. Below shows the different options and logic associated with each.



Full quantity is scrapped.

Scrapped quantity on the inventory record is equal to the inventory quantity.


Installed onto an assembly.

Full quantity is installed onto a parent aBOM.


Actively kitted.

Kitted to an open kit (kit status not complete) AND not installed.


Linked to an active or failed run.

Inventory is attached to a run that is in a status of todo, in progress, redline, hold, or failed.

On Order

Linked to an active purchase.

Inventory is attached to a purchase line that is in a status of draft, requested, approved, or ordered.


Physically in inventory, but not able to be consumed based on location restrictions.

Inventory is none of the above states and the location that it is located in has its inventory availability turned off. OR the inventory quantity is 0.


Physically available to consume.

Inventory is none of the above states.

The above table is sorted in order of how it is executed in the logic. For instance, if an item is installed and kitted, the installed status will take precedence.
