Tracking the movements of the stock and vaccines within the storeroom/refrigerator is essential aspect of visibility into what vaccines are where within each level of the supply chain. OpenLMIS version 3.1 included the initial release of Stock Management functionality (Stock Management). The following stories were identified as enhancements or changes needed to specifically support the management of vaccines within the EPI program.
We've defined stock management as everything dealing with stock/vaccines for my facility and store rooms/refrigerators only. Workflows related to stock at lower levels should be included in Re-Supply. This includes issuing/fulfilling/allocating to a lower level, checking stock levels at a lower level, etc.
Recording wastage and capturing reasons for wastage at the users storeroom/CCE is covered in this domain. The wastage data is also recorded/viewed in the Re-supply process. Wastage is also an input for Forecasting and Estimation.
