Unlabeled bottles of wine stock in inventory are frequently referred to as shiners in North America, and cleanskins in the Southern Hemisphere. This article details how to label shiner (cleanskin) stock produced by a packaging (bottling), and labeled at a later date.
Prior to labelling your shiner stock, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with bottling in vintrace by reading our Packaging (Bottling) Operation article.
Labelling shiners is a two-part process. First, you’ll need to set up your stock item, then use vintrace’s Manufacture operation to label the stock item that you created.
Setting Up Stock Items
The assumption is that you’ve already bottled your shiner (cleanskin) stock. You’ll need to first set up your stock items with a Bill of Materials (BOM).
Set up a stock item with a single shiner, the front label, and back label. This stock item will need to have a different stock code and category than the shiner. In the example below, the shiner 13CHARD is listed in the Bill of Materials (BOM).
Labelling Stock Items
To label stock items, you'll use vintrace’s Manufacture operation:
- Click Inventory in the sidebar.
- Click the Operations icon.
- From the Inventory section, click Manufacture.
- Enter the following details in the General tab of the Action Manufacture window.
- Quantity — The number of shiners you want to label.
- Stock Item — The item that you created which includes the shiner and its labels.
- Route To — Click the to select the area where you want to route.
- Route From — If you need to change where the stock is coming from, click the beside the item.
- Click Save.
After saving your shiner and other bottling components will be depleted by the specified quantity, while the stock of the item that you created increases.
