We use a user written process that uses a file of tickets that have
inventory info.   If your inventory is bar coded these tickets can be
created by scanning inventory counts.   Otherwise paper tickets are
filled out and are typed into this file.   Before the file gets sent
into the Inventory Management batch there are many edit checks
performed.   Items which show large variances are doubled checked.   We
know the variances before we send the info into MAPICS so there are no

Tickets have a unique serial number.   Our scanned tickets also get a
computer generated serial number.

Subject: [MAPICS-L] Complete Physical Inventory

Hi group!

Due to acquisition we're facing a complete physical inventory that will 
shutdown our factory for at least a couple days.

I was curious if anyone had developed a procedure to make the process
efficient, the most harrowing aspect to me
is creating a mechanism that facilitates the people/paper based counting

side and getting the info uploaded before
the factory starts moving parts gain.

Any comments or tips would be appreciated.

If preferred you may contact direct: leleux@xxxxxxxxxxxx
