This mode is used as a way to maintain and count inventory by bin location.
Since ScanIt Parts on the computer syncs up the inventory in the morning, all changes to the inventory that are done throughout the day (receiving and selling) will change the inventory's on hand quantity. Because of this, it is important to re-pull inventory before starting a perpetual inventory.
Perpetual Inventory DOES NOT update the quantity on the DMS, it is just a way to do a comparison before hand.
