Downloading Your Inventory and Syncing the Scanners
Step 1 - Downloading Your Inventory Click on the Download button on PartsWizard, and choose "Download From DMS".
Select the option for Inventory, and click on the check box for physical inventory sheets, with today's date. Click OK.
The Download Wizard should look like the following:
Step 3 - Synchronizing your Scanners. Because the download performs a synchronization right after downloading, the first scanner is already done. You will need to take each rented scanner and one-by-one place them into the charging cradle that is connected to the computer. Once the scanners are connected click on the "Sync Scanner" button,
wait for the Download Status box to disappear. Once it does, remove the scanner from the cradle and do the same for each rented scanner until they have all been synchronized.
The Scanning Process
Step 4 - Scanning Inventory. Once the scanners have been synchronized we will start scanning the inventory. Simply hold down the red power button located on the bottom left of the keypad until the scanners turn off. Once they turn off let go of the power button and they should turn back on, and take you to the PartsWizard menu page. Click on the button that says "inventory"
You should then see the following:
Explanation of Each Field:
Top Left: Bin Location
Top Right: Quantity Field
Right Blow: Part Number Field
Exp Bin: Bin location according to DealerTrack
Scan Bin: Bin that the Part was Scanned in
Scan Qty: How many of those parts were scanned
OnHand: How many parts there are according to DealerTrack
PNC: Part Number Change( simply used to see if there are any other part numbers used to reference this part)
Manufacturer: Maker of the Part
Red Percentage Number: Battery Life
Start by scanning the bin location first, then scanning the part number. The quantity field will have a 1 there automatically; you can leave it there and scan more items, or type in a custom quantity amount and then hit the "ENT" key on the bottom right of the scanner keypad. If it's a bad scan, type in a 0 in that QTY field, and then hit enter. Continue scanning until you've accounted for every part number inside of that bin physically.
When you scan the last part number in a bin, hit the "ENT" key, and then scan the next location.
When you've scanned for about 20-30minutes, you will want to move the scans from the scanner, and onto the computer. To do so, simply place the scanner back into the charging cradle connected to the computer, and then click on the Sync Scanner button again. This will remove the scanned items from the scanner, and put them into your physical inventory report. Continue this process until you have scanned your entire inventory.
Repeat the steps above until you're finished with your inventory.
Checking For Discrepancies, Mixed Bins, and Yellow Pad
Step 5 - Viewing Your Reports. Clicking on the Reports Button then Inventory button will display several tabs that allow you to examine the results of the scanning operations.
a. Variance Tab will display any variances found in your inventory. It compares what the scanner scanned, to what your DMS reports on hand.
b. Scanned Tab will display all parts scanned, and what bins they were scanned in.
c. All Inventory shows everything inside of your DMS, excluding bins that are filtered (Located in DMS Settings)
Congratulations, you're finished with your Perpetual Inventory.
