Introduction
The Labs were created, in order to demonstrate how to Perform Cycle Count using Oracle forms for Setup and mobile
GUI for actually counting the items.

Labs were developed to assist an application support analyst by:

» Navigation through the Oracle Warehouse Management (WMS) telnet session.


» Required setup that needs to be performed prior to actually counting the Items.
» The labs will only show the support perspective information.

Perquisites
Analysts should have a basic understanding of the below modules so that the labs can be well followed.

» Oracle Inventory
» Oracle Warehouse Management
» System Administrator

Typographic Conventions Used in Oracle Application Navigation Paths in this document

(N) Whse Mgmt >Warehousing>Inventory>Counting>Cycle Count

This simplified path translates to the following:


Choose Whse Mgmt Responsibility > Navigate to Warehousing then Select Inventory and click on Counting.

After selecting Counting, users will see more type of counting functionalities.

Setups
In this lesson we will cover all the setup steps that need to be performed before actually counting Items for Cycle Count.

The setups of how to create Items and On-hand are already covered in earlier lessons.

Define an ABC Compile

Define an ABC Compile

1. Login to the application and choose responsibility = Warehouse Manager

2. Navigate : Inventory Management > ABC Analysis > ABC Compiles

3. Select the organization as XX-WMSOrganization1 (XW1)

4. (B) Press New

5. Enter Compilation Criteria

 Name: XXW Labs FGI

 Description : Enter a description

 Content Scope: Subinventory (XX FGI)

 Valuation Scope: Subinventory

 Cost type: Frozen

 Compile Specification: Current on hand quantity

6. Save (B)

7. Click on Compile (B)

When the compilation has completed re-query the ABC compile. When the query return it should have values in these

additional fields:

 Compile Status = Completed

 Total Inventory Items = <value>

 Total Inventory Value = <value>

If the above 3 fields do not have a value in them the compile did not complete satisfactory. Determine problem, correct

and resubmit compile.

3 | CYCLE COUNT USING MOBILE APPLICATION


Define ABC Classes

1. (N) Warehouse Manager > Inventory Management > ABC Analysis >ABC Classes

 Name = XXW CLASS A

 Define class names that suit your business environment

 Use these classes to group items in your ABC compilation

 Description = XXWMS LABS CLASS A

 Similarly define class for XXW CLASS B and XXW CLASS C

4 | CYCLE COUNT USING MOBILE APPLICATION


Before you assign items to ABC classes, you must define an ABC group.

Define ABC Groups

Define ABC Groups

1. Login to the application and choose responsibility = Warehouse Manager

2. Navigate : Inventory Management > ABC Analysis >ABC Assignment Groups

3. Select the organization as XX-WMSOrganization1 (XW1)

4. In the ABC Assignment Groups form, press , to add new row.

5. In the ABC Assignment Groups form, Enter the following details

 ABC Group: XXW Labs Assignment Group

 Compile Name = XXW Labs FGI

Subinventory and the number of items existing in the subinventory will be defaulted

 Click on Group Classes (B)

 Priority =1

5 | CYCLE COUNT USING MOBILE APPLICATION


 Class Name = XXW CLASS A

 Description= XXWMS LABS CLASS A

An ABC group may have an unlimited number of ABC classes.


A rank of 1 is higher than a rank of 2 and so on.
Assign items of higher relative value to classes of higher rank.

Define ABC Assignments

1. Login to the application and choose responsibility = Warehouse Manager

2. ( N) Inventory Management >ABC Analysis >Assign Items

3. On the ABC Items form , select the ABC group as ‘ XXW Labs Assignment Group’

4. Press Find (B)

5. Verify the items assigned to the ABC group are defaulted

 Assign Sequence Number as 1, based on the number of items in your assignment compilation.

 Choose the sequence number that corresponds to the last item in each class.

6 | CYCLE COUNT USING MOBILE APPLICATION


 Assign Item Percent, based on your assignment on the percentage of items in your compilation.

 Choose a value from the remaining unassigned percentage of the total Number of items. For example, if

you assign 25% of your items to class A, then you must choose a value between 0% and 75% for the next

classes.

6. Press ‘Assign’ (B) to assign the items and verify the concurrent program ‘Define ABC assignments’ is submitted

and completed successfully.

Key Tables

There are some of the key tables involved with Cycle counting process
mtl_cycle_count_headers
mtl_cycle_count_items
mtl_cycle_count_classes

To find the cycle count header info, use the below query

select * from mtl_cycle_count_headers where cycle_count_header_name like ‘XX%FGI%CC’

10 | CYCLE COUNT USING MOBILE APPLICATION


To find the cycle count items use the below query

Select * from mtl_cycle_count_headers where cycle_count_header_id= 8269; -Header id from the query result above

To find the Cycle count classes details use the below query

Select * from mtl_cycle_count_classes where cycle_count_header_id=8269;

Manual Schedule Cycle Count

Manual scheduling is the process of requesting counts for any item at any time. Request counts for specific

subinventories, locators, and items, and Set the count for any date.

1. Login to the application and choose responsibility = Warehouse Manager


2. (N) Inventory Management >Counting >Cycle Counting >Manual Requests

 Cycle Count Name: XXW FGI CC

 Select item or subinventory for counting. Subinventory: XX FGI
