Treatment of items not in the vocabulary

Sometimes it may not be advisable to include every stock item in the vocabulary. These items are described as NIVs (Not in the vocabulary). The NIVs include:

  1. Machine spares rarely required: these items should be kept out of the stores vocabulary since they are only purchased when a need arises. They are described as ONIS (only when needed items).
  2. Items of non-repetitive nature: These are items which are needed at certain prescribed intervals e.g. 1-5 years 2-3 year etc.
