This PeopleBook discusses the setup and use of the PeopleSoft Mobile Inventory Management application release 9.1 added to PeopleSoft Supply Chain Management in the FSCM 9.1 Bundle #12 dated 05/6/2011.

The FSCM Mobile Inventory Management application provides tools to integrate mobile devices to the PeopleSoft Supply Chain Management system. This enables you to take advantage of the cost savings and efficiency improvements inherent in processes driven by mobile devices, such as handheld bar code data collection devices.

To reduce the complications and costs of integration, the Mobile Inventory Management application does not use a third-party partner; instead, Oracle ADF (Application Development Framework) Mobile is used along with the PeopleSoft Integration Broker and PeopleSoft Web Services (including Component Interfaces).
