You will use the Physical Inventory tile to perform mobile physical inventory, scan assets, retrieve and display asset information from the Asset Repository, and automatically populate the Physical Inventory (PI_SCAN) interface and Scan History (PI_SCAN_HIST) tables with scan records—all from your mobile scanning device. The Physical Inventory tile is part of the PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface and can be accessed from your mobile scanning device (with web browsing capability).

Physical Inventory tile and the Asset Tracking homepage

FluidUI_AssetTracking_PhysicalInventoryTile

You will use the Physical Inventory tile after running the Generate Scan Scope process and before you generate results and transactions. During the scanning process an individual uses the Physical Inventory tile along with a scanning device to scan a barcode; asset information is automatically retrieved from the Asset Repository and presented to the scanning device. Scanned assets appear in list form on the left side of the page. This process also populates the Physical Inventory and Scan History tables with scan records.

After you configure your physical inventory process and define the extract scopes and scan scopes for your physical inventory IDs, as well as the physical inventory schedule, you can extract data from PeopleSoft Asset Management tables. When the extract is complete, you can use the extract data in subsequent steps of the physical inventory process.

In order to process physical inventory, you must execute each step in its proper order. The Load/Match/Reconcile PI Info page includes each step in the proper order and prominently displays the step that was last processed for a given physical inventory ID

Note: Because steps 2 and 3 of Load/Match/Reconcile PI require writing and reading files, you should run the AM_PIJOB, which consists of the AMPI1000 SQR program and AM_PIWS_RUN Application Engine program that are executed in parallel for these steps from the file location. For example, if you are writing and reading files from c:\temp\file.txt or c:\temp\scan.dat, you would run the process on the client. If you are writing and reading files from a directory on the PeopleSoft Internet Architecture server, run the process on that server.

Use the Load/Match/Reconcile PI Info page (RUN_AMPI1000) to execute each step of the Physical Inventory process. It is recommended that you add a new run control ID for each physical inventory ID (PI ID). Also use this run control ID for subsequent steps within the same PI ID.

Load/Match/Reconcile PI Info - Generate Scan Scope page

Load/Match/Reconcile PI Info page (Mobile Physical Inventory)

Click the Run button to run the Generate Scan Scope process. This process automatically defines a set of assets that should be scanned and provides that list to the Physical Inventory page, which is accessible from your mobile scanning device.

Generate Results (Step 2)

After scanning barcodes in combination with the Physical Inventory tile (which inserts scanned records into the PI_SCAN table), review the scanned data before running step 2 (generate results).

Step 2 performs matching between a physical inventory scan scope and scanned data, and creates physical inventory results for review.

Remember before you generate results, you should use the Verify Duplicate Tags page and Verify Duplicate Serial ID page to clean up any possible errors in the scanned data.

Generate Results Select the Generate Results option and click the Run button to initiate processing. Note that this step may take some time to complete due to the amount of information that must be processed.

Because this step involves some complex processing, you may want to have your database administrator optimize the database before you execute the step.

Generate Transactions (Step 3)

After matching is performed, you create physical inventory transactions that reconcile the data in Asset Management with the results of the physical inventory.

Image: Load/Match/Reconcile PI Info - Generate Transactions page

Load/Match/Reconcile PI Info - Generate Transactions page (Mobile Physical Inventory)

Select the Generate Transactions step and click the Run button to begin generating the transactions.

Because this step involves some complex processing, you may want to have the database administrator optimize the database before you run it.

This step takes the longest time to process, so be sure that you are satisfied with the generated results before you load the transactions. You can see the results of the matching process by reviewing the Results page and the Results Detail page.

See Results Page

After you have created, reviewed, and approved the reconciliation transactions, you load them by using the Interface Asset Information component and the Transaction Loader.

Upon successfully completing all the steps, the system will advance the navigator to the next step. The user can click the Run button to submit the process.

Note: You may want to archive records from the Scan History (PI_SCAN_HIST) table when the scan history data is no longer needed (at the conclusion of a physical inventory cycle, for example). Use PeopleTools Data Archive Manager to remove records from the Scan History table. If you choose to use Data Archive Manager, you will have to create the archive and history table for the Scan History table.

See ‘Understanding PeopleSoft Data Archive Manager’ and ‘Understanding Archiving Strategy’ in the PeopleTools Data Management documentation.

Use the Physical Inventory (PI_SCAN_PHY_FL) page to perform mobile physical inventory, scan assets, retrieve and display asset information from the Asset Repository, and automatically populate the Physical Inventory (PI_SCAN) and Scan History (PI_SCAN_HIST) tables with scan records.

Export File

CSV File - Select CSV File for a comma-separated values (CSV) file.

Scanner File - Select Scanner File as the export file type, and enter a file name (as well as any additional path information) for the file that you want to generate. The output file is formatted for loading into a bar code scanning device in preparation for performing physical inventory.

Generate Labels - To create a file for printing labels rather than performing inventory, select Generate Labels as the export file type. A label file is created for the printer in a different format from the one used for a scanning device.

To generate files for both a scanning device and a printer, perform step 2 twice with a different output file type each time.

Web Service - Select Web Service to use the Integration Broker web service option to load the physical inventory data. This happens without any input or initiation. As soon as an inbound XML message is received from the third party vendor, the associated handler loads the scanned data.

Note: When using the web service option, remember to supply the file size for chunking on the Asset Management Installation Options page. This specifies the chunk size for the message GET_PIDATA.

See Setting Up Application-Specific Installation Options

Note: The EXTCOPY.BAT file is configured to copy the extract file to the A:\ drive for demonstration or quick overview purposes. You need to modify EXTCOPY.BAT if you want to copy the extract file to the appropriate drive on a scanner.

Copy the scanner program (PI.EXE) and scanner file to the MS-DOS based scanning device. You can easily do this using a communications software package. You may wish to use a certified integration solution provided by recommended software vendors. Consult the bar code scanning device manual and software vendor for more information.

Once you have loaded the extract file and scanner program into the inventory-scanning device, you can perform the physical inventory. Each time that you scan an asset that is included in the extract file, the scanner displays the asset's information, such as tag number, description, serial ID, asset ID, and custodian. For the asset that you scan, you can retain or modify the values displayed on the scanner.

While you are performing the physical inventory scan, the scanning device creates a sequential file that contains information on all the scanned assets. The next step is to load the scanned file into PeopleSoft Asset Management for review.

Note: The files EXTCOPY.BAT and PI.EXE reside in the \PI directory. EXTCOPY.BAT is no longer supported, but it may be useful for a quick overview of the process.

Review the section on hardware requirements for further information about bar code scanners and methods of moving data to and from scanning devices.

If you are using an IT asset discovery tool from a third party vendor , you need to run a gateway extract so that you have a file to load into PeopleSoft Asset Management.

Load Scan Import File (Step 3)

After completing the physical inventory with the scanning system, download the scanner data into a workstation or network server so that it can be converted back into a PeopleSoft Asset Management table called PI_SCAN. You do this using a communications software package or by using the certified integration solution provided by various software vendors. Consult the bar code scanning device manual or software supplier for more information.

Image: Load Scan Import File

This example illustrates the fields and controls on the Load Scan Import File. You can find definitions for the fields and controls later on this page.

Load Scan File Page

Note: PeopleSoft Asset Management provides an unsupported file called SCANCOPY.BAT (found in the \PI directory) that can be edited to copy the SCAN.DAT file from the scanner to the computer. You may need to modify the copy statement in SCANCOPY.BAT so that it copies from the drive letter corresponding to the scanner's drive. This is similar to the modification that you may need to make to EXTCOPY.BAT.

Once the scanner files are available to load into Asset Management, you can run step 3 of the physical inventory process.

Enter the directory and file name of the inventory file. This is most likely \TEMP\SCAN.DAT. If located on the PeopleSoft Internet Architecture server, you can run the next process on the server.

Select the Load Scan Import File option and click the Run button to load the scan data into PeopleSoft Asset Management. You can load as many files as you need by renaming SCAN.DAT (during the bar code scanning process) with unique file names and loading each file separately.

Note: If you have written your own scanning program or modified PI.BAS to configure fields or field lengths, you need to update the file formats in AMPI1000.SQC to match.

Once you have completed this step, review scanned data, find any duplicate tags, and verify that there are no duplicate serial IDs.

See Verify Scanned Data Page.

See Verify Duplicate Tags Page.

See Verify Duplicate Serial ID Page.

Generate Results (Step 4)

After the inventory data is loaded into Asset Management and you have reviewed it, correcting any duplicates or errors, you can run step 4. ,This step performs matching between a physical inventory scan scope and scanned data and creates physical inventory results for review.

The system presents you with all the assets that match your criteria. Select the one you want to view.

Use the Verify Duplicate Tags page (PI_SCAN_DUP_TAG) to conduct searches for finding and correcting physical inventory data.

It is very common for an asset to be scanned multiple times during physical inventory, thus creating more than one entry with the same tag or serial number. In order for PeopleSoft Asset Management to perform inventory reconciliation, each tag or serial number must be unique. Therefore, it is extremely important that you identify and resolve any duplicate entries. If any duplicate entries exist when results are generated, these entries are marked as errors and are not processed any further.

This example illustrates the fields and controls on the Verify Duplicate Tags page. You can find definitions for the fields and controls later on this page.

Verify Duplicate Tags page

You can search on a tag and a physical inventory line number. The physical inventory line number reflects the number of this asset in the scanning sequence. For instance, the third asset that was scanned falls on physical inventory line number 3.

If duplicates exist, the system displays a page on which you can correct or delete assets that have duplicate numbers.

The IP Alias and IP Address fields describe the internet protocol attributes of IT assets that are extracted from the IT discovery tools database.

Manual Review Required

This check box is selected if the scanner operator requested a special review for this asset.

Results in Error

This check box is selected if the physical inventory processing cannot process a result further. The following error conditions may apply:

  • Duplicate tags.

    If any duplicate tags still exist in the scanned data, the results generated for those duplicates contain errors.

  • Duplicate Serial IDs.

    If any duplicate Serial IDs exist when being scanned by Serial ID, they will be reported as errors.

    Note: Additionally, the duplicates that are not errors (Duplicate Tag or Duplicate Serial ID) will appear in Verify Duplicate Tags and Verify Duplicate Serial IDs respectively for review and correction.

  • Multiple Departments

    If an asset has multiple departments (that is, the cost is divided between two or more departments), an error results. Physical inventory processing cannot handle such assets. However if the cost is split between multiple funding (Split Funding) within 1 department the system will allow the transfer of the Split Funding to the new department specified. Furthermore, if multiple departments error occurs, the system will stop the departmental transfer but will still allow other transactions, such as location/custodian transfer to be processed for that asset.

  • Asset retired.

    An asset recorded as Retired in Asset Management was scanned. Physical inventory processing doesn't process reinstatements automatically. Complete these in the Retiring Financial Assets component.

  • InterUnit candidate.

    A scanned tag was found for an asset in a business unit other than the one for which you're processing physical inventory. You should transfer it from that business unit to the physical inventory business unit. Physical inventory processing doesn't perform interunit transfers automatically. Complete these in the Asset Cost Adjust/Transfers component.

    These errors are exceptions to the rule and should not occur frequently or in high volumes. Results that are in error do not generate transactions and should be resolved manually.
