What do the columns in the inventory report mean?

This section will give you the item's status. The column headers are similar to the item section in the Overview. Here is what the column headers mean.

  • Q on Hand – Physical Quantity on hand.

  • Q on Hold – what parts are on hold.

  • Q on FF – Units committed to our customer's shipping orders in our shipping system.

  • Q comm.–These are items committed to Work orders and Sales orders within the DCL ERP system (different than the shipping system).

  • Q in Proc. - When an order ships, the part number required moves from FF commitment to PROC commitment. PROC stands for in-process. After the order ships, there is no longer an FF order commitment and a slight delay of no more than 5 minutes before the stock is deducted from ON HAND. The PROC commitment accounts for the stock before deducting it from the system.
