Record Chemical and Mechanical Properties
When booking stock into the system, you can record a cast number against the batch of material being booked in.

The system has an optional facility that allows you to record the chemical composition and mechanical properties of the material against that cast number at any time.

This cast analysis information can then be used either for record purposes or to generate your own Test Certificates for the material when you despatch any of it to your customers.
Metal Grades with Enforced Composition Tolerances
When booking stock in, you can identify the paticular metal grade\quality code that batch of stock should conform to.

For each metal grade\quality code, the system gives you an optional facility to define permissable tolerances for each chemical\mechanical property.

So when entering cast analysis details, any defined tolerances will be enforced to prevent you entering values that do not meet the specification for that paticular metal grade\quality code.
Costing Methods
The GSD Stockholder system records both the actual cost and average cost for each sale movement per stock location.

This allows you to view profitability reports based on either actual costs, or average costs.

When viewing cost information for pre-sale Stock Enquiries, the system can be configured to work on either Last Cost or Average Cost.
