Inventory management

Hello, I have a couple of questions regarding QuickBooks:

I manufacture tubes. The tubes come in different sizes and lengths. I want to be able to look at a specific size and see how may pieces I have and at what lengths. I need to see the details not just the total amount at a specific size.

1) Can I use QB as an Inventory Management tool?

2) If QB can not provide me with these details is there another program I can use that works together with QB to manage my inventor? At some point I would like to use a bar code reader but not sure if that will work with QB either!

Thank you for the help!!

QB does not have matrix inventory nor does it have a pull from function, which is what I think you are hoping for.

In QB each inventory item is unique, if as an example you order and stock tubes
3/8 dia, 5/16 dia, in 3ft and 5 ft lengths, you would need 4 items

tube, 3/8 x 3
tube, 3/8 x 5
tube, 5/16 x 3
tube, 5/16 x 5

If that example is not what you are talking about please explain in more detail.

QB doesn't have great tool for complicated inventory. What I mean by complicated is like you have different assembly/formula/build of materials to build the products. It's a great tool for managing inventory for distributor/retailer where you just buy and resale.

There are several Quickbooks Add-On that can bridge that gap like Fish Bowl, Misys

Time to get a consultant

You people realize that Rpatel continues to ask the same question with a new thread, possibly not liking each member's advice. For example, Rustler provided some solid suggestions/recommendations - and continued within this thread - but Patel chooses to ignore the efforts here. Or maybe this person has a poor memory.

So enough trolling of the forum. Hire a consultant, pal.
