•An Inventory Board helps keep track on the

  availability of an item and signals when it is

  time to reorder/remanufacture raw

  materials/item.

•When an item is in low stock, the item will

  be moved from “in warehouse” to “low in

  stock” where the person in charge would

  reorder the item and move the item to

  “ordered” upon completion and ”arrived”

  when the item is awaiting to be logged.

In the workflow library, create a simple Scrum workflow.

••This workflow tracks all the invoices and needed to be paid for each item ordered.

•The invoices are then linked to the inventory Kanban workflow based on items.

•Total invoice amount can be viewed per stage to have a quick look on the total  costs paid.

STEP #2

Connect Kanban workflow to a general Group with your entire team, or a Group where it is most relevant.

You can connect this Inventory board to a team managing the Inventory for production as well as a finance team who would assign a price quotation on an invoice in Finance Management workflow linked to the item ordered.

STEP #3

Get notified whenever an activity occurs i.e. new Features/Bugs, new assignees, new attachments, task completions, etc. Give reactions, start conversation threads & use the latest information to fuel discussions.
