When should an item be archived?

Items that are no longer in use should be archived for future reference

Items that are no longer available should have their status changed to "Archived". 

For example, when a preparation of FCS has been exhausted, then edit the item, remove the locations and change the status to "Archived" so that the information about this preparation remains available for future use.
