50.1 Warehouse Availability Mobile Application Overview

You use the Warehouse Availability mobile application to review warehouse inventory balance information.

For a non-license plate warehouse, the Warehouse Availability mobile application enables you to view inventory balance information and warehouse detail information.

For a license plate warehouse, the Warehouse Availability mobile application enables you to view inventory balance information, warehouse detail information and license plate detail information.

The Warehouse Availability mobile application enables you to enter filter criteria to limit your search results based on branch/plant, item, location, lot, and parent license plate. Based on the established filter criteria, the system displays:

  • Items and all locations storing those items.

  • Locations and all items in those locations.

  • Parent license plate and all associated child license plates.

  • Warehouse inventory availability information.

Note:

The Warehouse Availability mobile application does not support apparel/attribute style items. For more information on inventory availability for apparel/attribute style items, see "Reviewing Item Availability for Style Items" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications Apparel Management Implementation Guide.

This table lists the applications that are available to review warehouse inventory balance information, warehouse detail information, and license plate detail information:

50.1.1 Barcode Scanning (Release 9.2 Update)

This application is designed to scan data for an item number, license plate number, location, and lot/serial number. To scan barcode data, you can use the native camera on your device or a third-party handheld Bluetooth-enabled scanning device. To use this functionality, you must create barcodes that represent a single field in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system. This application does not accept barcodes that consist of data for multiple fields.

You can generate barcodes using services such as those offered by Barcodes Inc.

Note:

Oracle is not affiliated with Barcodes, Inc., and does not require or recommend that you use this service to create your barcodes.

Before using the Warehouse Availability mobile tablet application, you

  • Set processing options for the Warehouse Availability mobile tablet application (M46231).

  • (Release 9.2 Update) Set the Bluetooth option in your device's settings to disable Bluetooth if you want to use the native device camera to scan barcodes of item number, license plate number, location, and lot/serial number. Enable the Bluetooth option if you want to use a Bluetooth-enabled scanning device to scan the barcodes. To scan barcodes using a Bluetooth scanning device, you must configure the scanning device on the mobile device.
