SIMS Equipment Register (half day course)




All Key Stages 

Development activity intended for…

Equipment Register is a module in the FMS suite of software. This module is used to keep a track of inventory items of equipment. This may be for insurance purposes, inspections or stock takes. Items of equipment can be assigned to one or more categories to make reporting more efficient. Items can also be assigned to rooms or individual members of staff.

Equipment can be entered manually, imported from FMS, from a text file or a combination of all three. All methods will be explored throughout the course. Inspections and stock takes can be processed in the module and outcomes recorded. A selection of reports will also be available to assist with the tracking of equipment.

It is preferable that you have an understanding of FMS basics such as order processing but this is not essential.
