The function Part Shelf Life Expiry is used to store and manage the shelf life expiry of a part which has limited shelf life as indicated on the Part Master. The data will be inserted into the table when the parts are received into inventory via either the Supplier to Stores, Inspection to Stores or Production to Stores movement functions. After clicking apply on the movement function, a pop up form will ask the user to specify the shelf life expiry date and the manufactured date. Note that only Serialised or Lot controlled parts can have limited shelf life managed via the system. When receiving a part via the Unplanned Receipt/Stock Adjustment Up function and for the Lot Number or Serial number received there is no record in the Part Shelf life Expiry table of the part's shelf life expiry for the received lot, the user must place the part in quarantine and Launch a Quarantine Action. After successful launch of a quarantine action the shelf life of the received part can be entered via the Part Shelf Life function.

If a Parts Shelf life is marked as extendable on the Part Master the shelf life can be extended using this function by first placing the stock under quarantine and adding a Quarantine Action. The shelf life can also extended by adding a Maintenance order via the Order Master function. When the part is received from the maintenance order the shelf life can be either confirmed or a new date can be selected and the shelf life for the lot or serial number will be extended by adding a new record for the part in the Part Shelf Life table.

The record in the Part Shelf Life table continues to exist even after all stock for a part has been issued or, a new record has been entered for a lot when it's shelf life was extended.

When analyzing the shelf life of a part only the record with the Maximum expiry date will be taken into account.
