Document the results that you want to achieve first then consider the tools that you need. Don’t assume it’s a BARCODING project.

Many times you can improve the PROCESS with less time and investment than you think!

RF Physical Inventory

A New Method of Counting, Auditing and Reconciling XA Physical Inventory with Materials Management

barcode enablement
Barcode Enablement
  • Barcodes are required for RF Physical Inventory
    • Tags are barcoded
    • Inventory and Locations must be barcoded
benefits33
33Benefits
  • Significantly reduce the amount of time to count, audit and reconcile a physical inventory
  • Improves accuracy of counts
rf physical inventory34
34RF Physical Inventory
  • Creates a set of ‘blank’ tags in a non-XA file; this file will be used for tag control
  • ‘Tags’ are printed on peel off labels with bar code tag numbers, 30 labels to a sheet
  • A range of tags is assigned to a counter (must be a valid employee in PM&C employee master file)
  • Counters will:
    • Scan the tag number
    • Scan (or key) the item number
    • Scan (or key) the location
    • Key the quantity
    • Scan (or key) a batch/lot number
slide35
35

RF Physical Inventory

  • Counters can only use tags that have been assigned to them
  • Counters can void a tag (requires a reason code)
  • Counters can mark a tag as ‘unused’
  • As tags are entered on the RF gun, the tag information is written to the Tag file
    • Will calculate count to location difference in both quantity and cost
    • Difference may be inaccurate if there are multiple tags for the same item/location combination
slide36
36

RF Physical Inventory

  • Once all tags have been accounted for, send the tags to either:
    • Materials Management as a ‘Count Group’
    • Inventory Management as a ‘Physical Inventory Batch’
    • Option to create zero count tags for uncounted item/location combinations
slide38
38Tags
  • Tags are peel off labels that will be attached to the items as they are counted
  • Tags show:
    • Tag number (both bar code and written), warehouse & date

  • As counts are scanned/entered, tag file is updated with:
    • Tag Status
    • Counted By (must match Assigned To)
    • Item, Location, Quantity and, if required, Batch/Lot number
    • Quantity and Cost difference between Location quantity and Count quantity
