Hi Daniel,

tx for the Redmine-Inventory-Manager. I searching for a plugin with functionality for hadrware inventory mangment.
I our case (software developing) we have different "lines" (develompent line, test line, acceptance line , procuction line) of one or may machines (hardware systems) for that i need to descrbe properties and status. The machines can be assembled to lines and they can be of different type like architecture tier type (frontend, middletier, persistency/storage/backend). Every line can have a version of the product (redmine version config) deployed on, and this way a ticket linked to a version which can be linked to one or many "lines" used in software of my redmine project. Now an example: The ticket is a bug which is caused by missing memory capacity in the application tier of the "test" line.
THis way tickets can be used together in a workflow with a system administrator of the line where the customer reported the software version bug for and the developer found out it was caused by low mem capacity.

Would be nice if you can give us more description of you plugin and screenshost to imagine how it manges Inventory.

Tx a lot,
cheers Terence.

RE: Redmine-Inventory-Manager Plugin - Added by teguh dhanu about 7 years ago

hi, thanks for the plugins. I'm new in redmine, would you please explain how to install this plugins in windos environment
Thankx

RE: Redmine-Inventory-Manager Plugin - Added by Daniel Anguita about 7 years ago

You have to make the same process described on:
https://github.com/danielanguita/Redmine-Inventory-Manager

but in DOS. The steps on windows would be:
  1. Run the following command in your DOS shell on the root directory of your redmine:
    ruby script/plugin install git://github.com/danielanguita/Redmine-Inventory-Manager.git
    
  2. Rename the directory vendor/plugins/Redmine-Inventory-Manager to vendor/plugins/redmine_inventory_manager on DOS or Windows, it's the same.
  3. Run the following command in your DOS shell on the root directory of your redmine:
    rake db:migrate_plugins RAILS_ENV=production
    

And that's all, you're ready to go. First I recommend that you install and test ruby, rails, rake and redmine.

Cheers,
Daniel

RE: Redmine-Inventory-Manager Plugin - Added by teguh dhanu about 7 years ago

Thank you very much I done it.. I'm Indonesian, how to customise the language and the currency? I would love to translate it to Indonesian.

Once again Thank you

RE: Redmine-Inventory-Manager Plugin - Added by Daniel Anguita about 7 years ago

No problem man.

So, to add your language you should duplicate en.yml to id.yml (id for Indonesia right?), then you can modify all words translations on the id.yml to your language.

You have to do this step in two folders:
redmine\vendor\plugins\redmine_inventory_manager\config\locales
redmine\vendor\plugins\redmine_inventory_manager\lang

The reason is because the directory where redmine looks for the translation depends on the version, so in that way will be compatible with all versions.

For currency it should adopt your server configuration for localization.

Good to know that some peaople is using this... soon i'll be uploading a new version with more features and staffs that i'm working on..

Cheers,
Daniel

RE: Redmine-Inventory-Manager Plugin - Added by teguh dhanu about 7 years ago

Great thanks .... translating on progress, just an idea about customizing the currency symbol. To make it more flexible, user can input several currency manually. And the report from warehouse, I think it would be better if user have choices what the want to report, whether "movement w/ report" or "Movement w/o Report"

I got some error:

1. The reports tab has translation missing, I have add the translation, the structure is just like the es.yml, but it still not appear.

2. When we click the button at that tab, it has missing link
at address bar it appear "http://localhost/inventory/report_export/input_invoice?warehouse=2" i thing it should be "http://localhost/redmine/inventory/report_export/input_invoice?warehouse=2"

where should I edit the file to correct it?

cheers,
Teguh

RE: Redmine-Inventory-Manager Plugin - Added by teguh dhanu about 7 years ago

Sorry, for error number 2, Just have corected.

RE: Redmine-Inventory-Manager Plugin - Added by Liam Randall over 6 years ago

Daniel,

We have this package installed and working on bitnami RM 1.2.0 (MySQL); everything seems to be working ok.

The en.yml file is missing two translations:
(line 81)
export: "Export"
reports: "Reports"
In both locations:
redmine\vendor\plugins\redmine_inventory_manager\config\locales
redmine\vendor\plugins\redmine_inventory_manager\lang

For those readers following along, you can just add these to your en.yml and restart redmine to repair the problem.

Daniel- how can we link inventory to tickets?

Great plugin, thanks!

is there any plan to update?

RE: Redmine-Inventory-Manager Plugin - Added by anna c over 3 years ago

Hi
I am trying to install this plugin too.
Because that my Redmine version is 2.3.3 so I guess I should install it in redmine/plugins

so I change the first step to:

ruby plugins install git://github.com/danielanguita/Redmine-Inventory-Manager.git

but i received this error message:

ruby: Is a directory - plugins (Errno::EISDIR)

I do this under Redmine's the root path

I don't know about ruby command
Could someone help me with this?

Thank you

RE: Redmine-Inventory-Manager Plugin - Added by Pavel Potcheptsov over 3 years ago

It won't work with rm 2.x
Try to use similar plugin:
http://sukima.github.io/redmine_equipment_status_viewer/
It works with rm 2.x

RE: Redmine-Inventory-Manager Plugin - Added by mike B about 3 years ago

Please please update.... I would really like to have this plugin on our install. I wish I could write plugins now and I would make it.. Just started learning.

Just looking at this one its more of an Asset tracking then it is product inventory management. I really wish this plugin would work... our QA department has over 2,000 different parts for repairing product and currently being tracked by, "lets go out to the warehouse to see what we have"... basically not being tracked at all... We end up ordering parts and then a month later finding a box of them that we already had, etc.. so much waste. Currently writing application in VB and Access DB to at least get something going but man... Just from the screenshots of this plugin it would be perfect to just add to our install of Redmine.

RE: Redmine-Inventory-Manager Plugin - Added by Daniel Anguita about 3 years ago

If I update this plugin.. would you donate for this??

RE: Redmine-Inventory-Manager Plugin - Added by mike B about 3 years ago

um. YEAH! Where do I donate? haha.

RE: Redmine-Inventory-Manager Plugin - Added by Jenny Jing about 3 years ago

Please update this plugin. We would like to use it as well. Where do I donate? I believe more people would be interested in it.

Please post if you have any update on this.

Thanks.

RE: Redmine-Inventory-Manager Plugin - Added by Daniel Anguita almost 3 years ago

I know you just finished the update however there is alot of small items things that would help make this perfection as I really wish I could use this but for now my excel sheets have alot of features that I cant do on the Redmine Site.

here are some things that I have that I really need ability to do in Redmine that this plugin is lacking.Great simple plugin but based on the route that I am already heading It would not be beneficial for me to move to this plugin.

  • searchable Tags for inventory items
  • Multiple inventory locations/bins
    • I may have the same item in 2 or 3 different locations.

Concept of use for me is:

  • Users can search for parts/items they need.
    • This is based off of an associated SKU/Product table as well as searchable tags in the product description
  • When they view the part they need , it will show locations, qty, and lot#
  • there is a page where they can move, use, receive inventory
    • Use/move/receive
      • Use
        • simply takes qty out of inventory location selected
      • Move
        • Provides two drop-down boxes with all available location/bin#'s
        • on submit it takes the parts out of the from and puts them into the to bin/location
      • Receive
        • drop-down box of all inventory locations
        • drop-down box of all part numbers
        • qty
        • vendor

Its hard to really explain so I attached two pictures of what I currently have programmed for the UI. It should help alot.

For my database I have these tables
  • Parts
    • ID Description Category ID
  • Stock
    • PArt ID Location QTY Lot #
  • Associations (Helps when searching for a part)
    • ID Part ID Product ID
  • Lot
    • Part Date Received Received from Vendor ID User ID
  • Category (this covers all of my categories used for product, storage areas, etc... as i wrote a script that uses this table based on ID and parent ID. This table relates to itself. )
    • ID Description PID

There are more but this is the backbone of my application i have in VBA right now.
