Dear SAP ByD team,

Now we are working on cycle count procedure in ByD and would like to as much as possible to automatize this process. Is it possible to schedule Cycle Counts on daily/weekly basis so that the system automatically proposes many items to count via a batch job run or by any other means, so that by the end of a period (calendar year) 100% of items on stock could be counted?

If it is possible, how to track that process: report etc? If such is not possible, kindly recommend of the best solution we can use.

Looking forward to your replies,

Hi Alexander,

Thanks for your input. Your request is very valid. We are starting to handle all the request to improve ByDesign very seriously via the Improvement Requests Platform. There is already one improvement request existing to this topic. We will prioritize the requests also according to the votes and decide 4 times a year, next decision communication is planned for December 22, 2017. So in the moment, I cannot confirm if this one will be picked, but I would like to invite you to vote for it. It will help us making decisions.

Meanwhile, we think a workaround solutions is possible based on an add-on build in Cloud Studio:

You could create your own BO based on which an mass data run (MDRO) can be built with the requested selection criteria and scheduling options. With that you can trigger the creation of PhysicalInventoryCount BO instances.

Best regards,

Iris Zimmermann
