Cycle Counts Views

The Cycle Counts views define cycle counts at specific inventory locations and specify the timing of these counts. Table 119 describes items in Cycle Count records.

Table 119. Selected Items in the Cycle Count Views


A type-in field containing the date on which the counting cycle should be completed. This field is for information only; the Cycle Counting Engine does not use the date.


A type-in field containing the actual date that the cycle count was completed. This date is used when generating Cycle Count Detail reports.


A type-in field containing the date on which the cycle count should start. This date is used when generating Cycle Count Detail reports.


The status of a cycle count; for example, Assigned, Closed, or Open.

Part List View

The Part List view displays a list of the products to count at a selected inventory location and records the count results. The records in the Part List are created by clicking Generate Counts or the Generate Counts (All Locations) in the Inventory screen's Cycle Counts view. For more information, see Cycle Counts View. Records can also be entered manually. Table 120 describes a button in Part List records.

Table 120. Selected Items in the Part List View

Count Complete

This button compares the value entered in the Count field and the number of items in the database, produces the data in the Variance view, and lists the missing assets in the Missing Assets subview.

Counted Serial Numbers Subview

The Counted Serial Numbers subview accepts serial numbers for each serialized product that is counted.

Variance View

The Variance view shows the differences between the quantity in the Field Service database and an actual product count. Table 121 describes a button in the Variance view.

Table 121. Selected Items in the Variance View


Clicking this button creates database transactions to match the quantity recorded in the database with the physical count. The transactions are either Receive Other (from the External location) or Ship Other (to the External Location). The Cycle Counting Engine does not validate (quantity or source) for the External location. For more information, see Setting Up External Locations and Inventory Transactions.
