The current dry matter percentage of the ingredient is displayed here and it is possible to change it if the dry matter percentage of the delivered product deviates from the dry matter percentage that is currently applied. Adjusting the dry matter percentage has the effect that the actual received amount and price will be adjusted to match the current dry matter % and price. This is to ensure the correct amount of dry stock is received to inventory at the correct price.
Partial delivery
If the delivered amount is lower than the ordered amount, it is possible to tick 'Partial delivery'. If this option is checked, the ordered amount will be set equal to the delivered amount for this receive and the difference between the ordered and delivered amount will be added as a new line to the order. This new line can be used to confirm a back order. 
1.       This partial delivery has the received amount given and the ordered amount has been changed.
2.       The remaining amount has been added to the order again and can be received once this is delivered.
For ingredients that have ‘Shrinkage’ active and this is set to he option ‘When received’ as show in the example below, this shrinkage is applied while performing the actual receive.
