    • New Stocked Part  (Inventory quantities & Min/Max rules will apply)

    • New Non-Stocked Part  (Inventory rules do not apply, and the system will not track your quantities)

    • New Component (Serialized parts, most commonly used to track part warranties)

    • New Tire Record (Serial number, size, DOT info tracked)

  3.   Enter the required information (highlighted in red)

The part is now a searchable record in your inventory.
