Physical inventory in SAP MM / WM / EWM

Simple inventory process with SAP



Mobile inventory with SAP

No matter whether it is inventory by key date, permanent, inventory sampling or dynamic cycle counting, the FLX-MOBIL INVENTUR solution supports you throughout and leads to a fast, cost-effective and transparent inventory execution in SAP®. FLX-MOBIL INVENTUR supports you on inventory management level (SAP MM-IM) as well as on warehouse management level (SAP WM and EWM).

The focus of the inventory solution is the faster and transparent inventory counting and checking. Up to now, large amounts of time were required for entry on paper lists and subsequent entry in the SAP system. With the combined solution of mobile dialogs for inventory counting and the document manager for post-processing and checking, you can save time.

In addition, the inventory execution is extended by the online use of mobile terminals and by a clear inventory control and evaluation tool directly in SAP. You are thus able to carry out your inventory on the move using barcode entry and to control it better. Inventory preparation, execution and control is thus much more efficient, transparent and avoids operating errors.

PROCESS STEPS OF THE INVENTORY

During the inventory count, the employee is given a mobile data recording device with scanner and carries out his count directly online in the system. The recorded counts are documented in the document manager, from where they are posted directly into the SAP system and the physical inventory documents are created.

The figure illustrates an example process of annual inventory with SAP.

You can enter the data to be recorded using bar codes, RFID, voice entry, or keyboard entry. Field checks from the SAP standard system are activated and are communicated via the message line on the mobile device. Any discrepancies are notified to you and clarified promptly.

CHECKING AND POSTPROCESSING SAP INVENTORY COUNTS - THE DOCUMENT MANAGER

The Document Manager is a comfortable SAP Cockpit for planning, monitoring, controlling and evaluating the annual inventory. It offers you convenient functions for postprocessing the physical inventory counts entered.

For example, you can summarize materials counted more than once on a count record or select them according to specific criteria.

The evaluation functions of the Document Manager offer a variety of standards for analyzing and preparing the physical inventory results. Once the checks have been carried out, the physical inventory documents can be created in the SAP System and the counts posted.

 

The physical inventory document manager provides you with the data you require at any time:
