Consistent naming conventions would ease learning the system and finding the data needed.
1. For example, in Inventory Direct, when Reorder is selected from the Home page, there is a row of functions, one of which is “Replenish Inventory Levels” but when this is click, the page that appears is titled “Process Inventory Reorders”. All the input pages should match the link selected.
2. The Catalog Type (Custodial, Technology, etc.) is listed as “Type” in one area, then as “Inventory Type” on a report, and then “Type” in another page or column.
3. “Type” is used throughout Inventory Direct to mean scores of different things. For example, on the Last 5 Tool Issue Transaction, the “Type” column is the transaction type, but on the Adjustment main page, the “Type” is the Catalog Type and on the various reports, Type column provides different information from the “Type” field on the input page.
