Chapter 1Inventory Items

Add/Maintain Inventory Items
The need to add new Inventory Items or make changes to existing Inventory Items can arise for a
variety of reasons, some of which will include:

Changing SDUSD inventory needs

Curriculum updates

Buyer vendor relationships

Requests from end-users.

After review of the SDUSD business requirement, a determination will be made as to whether a
new item will be created or an existing one updated or removed from the system.

Item creation is a multi step process involving more than one department providing input and
information. Other departments may be responsible for the creation and definition of an item but
it is the responsibility of the Senior Stock Analysis Clerk to further define the item for use in the
warehouse.

In this chapter we will first cover how to add and inventory items and then explore how to
maintain them in the system.

An Inventory item record is comprised of three parts:

Item Attributes

Purchasing Item Attributes

Business Unit Item Definition

Inventory Items are available for ordering only after all three steps have been completed.
DWA Project Inventory

Adding Only Unique Items to Inventory
When adding a new Item number, care must be taken to assure that the item does not already
exist in the database under a similar name. Adding multiple Item records for the same inventory
items could result in inaccurate inventory reporting and additional work maintaining inventory
items.

To reduce the risk of adding redundant item records, a thorough search must be made of the
existing Inventory Items to assure no record already exists. The Item Definition search panel (see
below) will be used to search the existing Item records for duplicate entries.

Searches can be made on a variety of fields (used individually or in combination), including;
Item ID, Description and Category. Searches can also be performed using a variety of search
operators including; begins with, contains, equals, greater than, less than, in and between.

To attempt to identify an existing Item Record, multiple searches should be done using all of
the relevant information available about the new item being added.


The steps to add a new item into PeopleSoft are listed below:

1. Determine the Item does not already exist in the database - (Performed by Senior Stock
Analysis Clerk)

2. Complete Define Items Attributes - (Performed by Senior Stock Analysis Clerk)

3. Enter Purchase Item Attributes - (Performed by Senior Stock Analysis Clerk)

4. Enter Business Unit Item Definition - (Performed by Senior Stock Analysis Clerk)

Maintaining Inventory Items
You can update an item's current status manually, or it can be updated by scheduling a status
change on a future date and running the Item Change Update process to apply the change on the
appropriate date. The technique that you choose depends on the status change that you want to
make and when you want to make it.

The steps to add a new item into PeopleSoft are listed below:

1. Retrieve the Item Record(Performed by Senior Stock Analysis Clerk).

2. Update Items Record Attributes/Definition(Performed by Senior Stock Analysis Clerk).

3. Save the Item Record(Performed by Senior Stock Analysis Clerk).

DemonstrationUpdate Item Record

Chapter 2Manage Stock

In this chapter we will review how stock requests are generated and sent to the Inventory area.
Stock requests can be generated automatically from PeopleSoft sourcing based on requirements
within purchase requisitions.
Request Stock from Warehouse
Requests for stock can come into the warehouse from a variety of sources. Two of the most
frequent automated sources of stock requests are:

Quick Sourcer

Auto Sourcing

The Quick Sourcer process creates orders from requisitions by creating a material stock request in
an organizations inventory stock when sufficient quantities of the goods exist. If not, Quick
Sourcer creates a purchase order to send to the vendor.

Auto Sourcing is a batch process which is scheduled to run several times a day. A Buyer may run
the Sourcing process in addition to the schedule. Manually running Auto Sourcing does not affect
the scheduled processes.

When a Requester selects an Item from the catalog, the vendor, Buyer, and price information
default to the requisition. The Sourcing process automatically builds these requisitions into
purchase orders without any attention from a Buyer.

Cancel Stock Requests
Within PeopleSoft you can perform several actions to existing stock requests within the system
prior to them being fulfilled. Some of the options include:

Cancel a Stock Request
Apply a Hold to a Stock Request
Release a Hold from a Stock Request

Prior to performing any of these actions you will need to acquire information about the order to
easily access it and make the necessary change. The information you should have is stock request
order number or source business unit of the stock request in order to to determine which stock
request to hold or cancel.

Changes to material stock requests originating from PeopleSoft Purchasing do not update the
original requisition in PeopleSoft Purchasing.

The following process will be followed to cancel a stock request

1. Identify which stock request to cancel / hold - (Performed by Senior Stock Analysis
Clerk).
2. Cancel the Stock request - (Performed by Senior Stock Analysis Clerk).

Chapter 3Putaway Processing

Different environments and stocking situations require different levels of stocking control.
PeopleSoft provides three methods of putaway processing:

Multistep putaway provides the tightest control over your stocking processes.

Auto-putaway automates much of the stocking process.

Express putaway enables you to process exceptions to your regular stocking routine.

The Putaway process assigns previously received stock to a specified storage location within the
Inventory business unit. The Putaway process can also adjust the location and quantity of the
item, as necessary.

However, prior to putaway, items must be received and inspected by SDUSD.

Receiving Shipments
In this section, we will discuss receiving goods from vendors. Shipments will be received at a
central location at the Supply Center. Receivers will unload the shipments and record this
transaction by entering the receiving data into PeopleSoft.

The receiving data is a key piece of the procurement lifecycle. The Accounts Payable department
will be responsible for matching the purchase order, the receipt, and the invoice together. And
use this information to determine when, and how much to pay the vendor.

After receiving shipments and recording the receipt into PeopleSoft, receiving personnel will
move the goods into the appropriate staging area based on the Site destination.

Receiving personnel will enter the receiving data for the shipments which were unloaded.
The steps include here are:
Picking the Purchase Order

Entering the Receiving Information

Printing the Delivery Detail Report

A Receipt Records captures the receiving data for only one specific vendor. There can be
multiple Purchase Orders and Shipments on a single receipt record, but they must all be for the
same vendor.
More than one purchase order may be received against within a single receipt, as long as the
Purchase Orders are for the same vendor.
Partial receipts can also be entered on a receipt.
DWA Project Inventory
44
The Delivery Detail Report specifies which Sites should receive which goods. Receiving
personnel use the Detail Delivery Report to determine which staging areas to move the goods.


The following process will be followed to Receive Shipments

1. Physically Receive Items - (Performed by Stock Clerk)

2. Enter a Receipt - (Performed by Stock Clerk)

3. Process Receipts - (Performed by Stock Clerk)

4. Stage Goods for Delivery - (Performed by Stock Clerk)

5. Print Receiving Delivery Report for the driver - (Performed by Stock Clerk)

Inspect and Putaway Items
The current business process in place at SDUSD requires that the vast majority of the items
will be received by the Purchasing area. Inspection will occur as part of the receiving
process and will not have its own separate process within PeopleSoft.

The putaway process will also be performed using PeopleSofts auto putaway process.

For the purposes of this training, we will review the receiving, inspecting process for the
infrequent situation where Inventory Department will receive items within the inventory
area.

The following process will be followed to Inspect and Putaway Items

1. Receive/Inspect Items - (Performed by Stock Clerk)

2. Load Item receiving receipts - (Performed by Senior Stock Clerk)

3. Print Putaway Plan - (Performed by Senior Stock Analysis Clerk)

Chapter 4Fulfillment

PeopleSoft Inventory can accept stock requests from multiple sources, including PeopleSoft
Purchasing, Inventory and third-party systems. These orders are staged to a demand interface
table (DEMAND_INF_INV) for processing.

Using your specified parameters, the Material Reservations process (INPLDMND) moves orders
from the interface table to a system table called DEMAND_INV and, for soft-reserved items,
reserves the quantity requested for the order line. Other vehicles for inserting orders into
DEMAND_INV include the Material Stock Reservations component, the Lot Allocation page, lot
allocation processing occurring in the Material Stock Request component or the Order Entry
Form component, and available-to-promise (ATP) promising in the Order Entry Form
component.

Once orders are in this table, you can generate picking plans, physically pick the stock, and enter
picking feedback (including what you picked and the storage locations from which you picked
them).

The Picking Confirmation process (INPBCONF) moves orders confirmed as picked to the
shipping interface table (SHIP_INF_INV) to prepare them for shipping, then decreases the
quantity in the storage locations.

After you ship the orders, the Depletion process (INPDDEPL) subtracts the shipped quantities
from your business unit.


Fill Orders
The PeopleSoft Inventory picking process enables you to translate demand from Inventory and
Purchasing into picking instructions for inventory personnel. The Picking Plan process, within
PeopleSoft, creates the Picking Plan report. The Picking Plan report is used by inventory picking
staff to identify what material to pick and from which storage locations to pick it.

The steps we will follow to fill this order are as follows:
1. Reserve the material - (Performed by Stock Clerk)

2. Create a Picking Plan - (Performed by Senior Stock Analysis Clerk or Stock Clerk)

3. Manually Pick Items from Storage Locations - (Performed by Stock Clerk)

4. Record Item Picking Feedback - (Performed by Stock Clerk)

5. Verify Status of Order - (Performed by Stock Clerk)

6. Print Shipping Document - (Performed by Senior Stock Analysis Clerk or Stock Clerk)

7. Ship Items with Documents - (Performed by Stock Clerk)

Demonstration Fill Orders



In this demonstration, we will fill order # 0000000032 for BANDAGES MUSLIN
TRIANGULAR, item number 0000000000000000014, that are maintained in our inventory. We
will start by reserving the materials for this order.

Step 1
Reserve Materials Process

The reserve material process will need to be run when items, from a purchase requisition, are
sourced from inventory stocks. In our example, Bandages Muslin Triangular, must be reserved
prior to being picked.

The reserve material process will not need to be run for non-inventory items received from
vendors.

Express Issue
By using the Express Issue page, you can create a stock request and reserve, pick, and ship the
stock in one step. The following types or orders can be processed using the Express Issue:

Internal orders

External orders

RTV orders

There are significant advantages to using express issues; because of the amount of automatic
processing involved. The entire fulfillment processreserving, picking, and issuingoccurs
automatically for the items on the order after you save.

DWA Project Inventory
85
However, this high degree of automation, makes this fulfillment method is not appropriate for
high-volume environments. There is no logic built into express issue pickingyou simply tell
the system what was picked from which location.

In addition, because you must request and ship the stock during a single session, you cannot use
this method for existing orders or customer shipments.

The requestor must have the valid ChartField information to complete the accounting coding
of the transaction.


Steps for Processing an Express Issue

1. Acquire request information (Performed by Senior Stock Analysis Clerk).

2. Enter Express Issue Information (Performed by Senior Stock Analysis Clerk).

3. Give the items to the school site or SDCD representative (Performed by Stock

This completes our Review of the replenishment requests.

Run the Replenishment Process
Replenishment processing enables you to maintain your inventory stocking levels, also known as
on-hand quantity balances. In general, SDUSD will use the Reorder Point Replenishment
method, but there are two ways to run this process:

Ad hoc replenishment Create replenishment requests in response to specific demands
for stock that you cannot fulfill.

Reorder point replenishment Specify stocking levels for each item in a business unit
and then generate replenishment requests when the available on-hand quantity drops
below these levels.

The process to compute items replenishment can be based on various parameters and business
conditions such as:

Reorder point for an item

Safety stock requirements

Economic order quantity of items


Note: The items replenishment values were setup upon entering of Item into inventory.

The inventory transactions covered in this manual would all result in accounting entries being
generated within PeopleSoft. These accounting entries are generated by batch processing using
the Accounting Line Creation process. As a user, you can review your entries before they are
picked up by the Journal Generator process for posting in the general ledger.

To review the accounting transactions, use the following pages within PeopleSoft depending on
your needs and requirements.

To review and change accounting entries:
o Accounting Line Errors page
o the Unposted Line Edit page
o the Detail Accounting page

To inquire on your accounting entries:
o Unposted Accounting Lines page
o Posted Accounting Line page
o The Accounting Entries page

To review accounting entries (including both the debit and credit sides of the accounting
entry and the complete ChartField combination):
o Accounting Register report

We will look at the Accounting Entries Line Item Page. PeopleSoft categorized accounting
entries by business function on this page. You will be prompted for a Transaction Group when
reviewing accounting entries within this page. The following is a list of Transaction Groups as
established within PeopleSoft.

Purchasing and inventory share common item definition records. Additionally inventory levels
are updated upon receipt of goods.

Requisitions for inventory items are sourced to the warehouse for fulfillment. PeopleSoft checks
whether a requested item is stocked in inventory, and if so, it sources the requisition to the
warehouse for fulfillment.


Accounts Payable
The matching process within accounts payable matches goods from a vendors invoice to the
corresponding purchase order and receiving documents.


General Ledger
Journal entries reflecting inventory transactions are created and posted into the general ledger.
Daily inventory transactions (receiving shipments, fill orders, ) within PeopleSoft, initiate
accounting transactions which must be reflected in the general ledger to provide accurate
reporting of SDUSDs financial position. These transactions are created and brought into the
General Ledger using the journal generate process initiated within the accounting department.

Fuel InterfacesVehicle Additions
SDUSD will be purchasing fuel for its vehicles. After the fuel has been loaded into the storage
tanks, the Express Putaway function will be used to record the transaction into the Inventory
system. This process will be done by the Senior Stock Analysis Clerk using documentation
provided from EJ Ward Fuel Systems.

Once the fuel is in storage tanks, it will be utilized by SDUSD vehicles as needed for school
operations.

The vehicles fuel consumption will be recorded via a charge code assigned to each vehicle. This
unique code will be used in a scheduled batch process within PeopleSoft which will charge the
vehicles fuel consumption costs to the appropriate department, as well as reduce the fuel
inventory balance within PeopleSoft.

Help Desk Procedures
The goal of the San Diego City Schools Help Desk is to provide customers with a single point of
contact for computer hardware, software, and district application problem reporting. The Help
Desk will solve, document and or relay problems to appropriate support personnel to provide an
efficient and effective resolution.
To enhance our support process, we request that all school sites designate a contact person to
call the Help Desk to report problems affecting either individual workstations or the entire site.
By having a single site designee call in, it helps keep the phone lines open when an outage affects
multiple users at one site. Site Technicians perform this function at secondary schools.
Please note that the Help Desk greeting (619) 725-7500 will be changed daily to reflect system
outages and status updates throughout the outage. You should also try to re-establish connections
with systems that are experiencing outages at regular intervals.
The Help Desk also provides assistance for NON-EMERGENCY issues via a web request form
located at http://www.sandi.net/hdemail/. This provides a standard format for submitting your
request for a problem ticket. Help Desk tickets will no longer be issued from an email request.
Please take the time to review your entries to the web page prior to submitting your request.
