Dry Goods Explorer

Accessible from the left-hand navigation, the Dry Goods Explorer can be pre-filtered to either Additives or Packaging. 

The Dry Goods Explorer provides a list of all additives and packaging in inventory and allows you to filter by text field, category, type, tag, owner (if applicable), and archiving status. 

Each row in the Dry Good Explorer corresponds to a unique product and displays the product name, type, on hand amount, the number of batches, product notes, owners (if applicable) and tags. Click on 'Show costs' at the top to display the total cost on hand and average cost per unit (if applicable).

New additives and packaging items can be added by clicking on either the '+Receive additive' or '+Receive packaging" buttons in the top right corner.

Click on a row to access the product details page. 

Product Details page

This view displays the additive or packaging product name at the top, along with options to archive, delete, edit, and receive more (top right corner).

A details summary of the product properties includes the product type, on hand amount across all active batches, cost information, as well as manufacturer and default vendor. For additives, the addition rate and saved instructions can also be referenced. For packaging, the inventory units, items and default items/unit cal also be referenced. 

A list of batches displays all batches (active and depleted) for the product along with some pertinent details such as the manufacturing batch ID, on hand amount, total cost (if applicable), as well as notes and tags. Options to fully deplete and adjust on hand are available for active batches. Depleted batches must be undepleted before any changes can be made to the on hand amount.

Click on the 'Details' link on the far right to open the batch details page.

Archiving Dry Goods

Dry good products can be archived if all batches have been fully depleted. These products will no longer appear in dropdowns of either Addition or Bottle actions. If this Product becomes active again, you will have to unarchive it before you will be able to undeplete and receive more on a batch. 

The ability to filter for archived products is possible in the Dry Goods Explorer.



Q. Why does my on hand inventory show a negative number?

A: A negative on hand inventory indicates that more additive was used of that batch than was received into the system. For example, 5kg of DV10 yeast, Batch # 12345 was entered into InnoVint as the Total Amount. Over the course of harvest, 6.2kg of DV10 yeast, Batch #12345 was used. InnoVint will show that Batch # 12345 now has an on-hand inventory of -1.2kg.

To update the on-hand inventory, you'll need to either A) edit the batch to change the total amount of the additive, or B) adjust the on-hand inventory from the Additive details page. Make sure to fully deplete a batch when it has been used up to avoid selecting a batch number that no longer exists in inventory for future additions.

Note: For accounts with the Costing feature activated, a negative batch inventory will still apply costs on a price-per-unit basis. For example, 5kg of DV10 yeast, Batch # 8675309 might cost $450, or $0.09 per gram. If Batch # 8675309 currently has a negative inventory and is selected and used in an Addition action, InnoVint will still calculate and apply the $0.09 per gram of yeast to the appropriate lot(s).
