Administering Siebel Medical Handheld Applications for Consignment Inventory Management
This topic outlines an example process performed by a Siebel administrator and users. Your company might follow a different process, depending on its business requirements.
A medical device company wants to track a product for managing the consignment inventory. The administrator has already defined the product in the system so needs to define how this product is going to be managed for the consignment inventory. The administrator uses the capture hierarchy command to update the product hierarchy so that sales representatives are able to view hierarchical results when analyzing inventory using the Siebel Handheld application. The administrator then recreates the product hierarchy for each inventory location where these products are being kept and defines consignment levels at that inventory location. For some products, the administrator is required to record inventory that was sent to an inventory location or to a sales representative. The administrator then assigns cycle counts to sales representatives.
