COVID-19-Related Update for PeopleSoft Inventory to Improve Serial Number, Lot, Lot Expiration Date Tracking and Visibility
A note from Char Jorgenson
With the imminent release of a supply of COVID-19 vaccines, PeopleSoft Healthcare customers need to closely manage the handling and distribution of the supply they will receive. Many organizations let us know they desire more and better controls over the tracking, visibility and management of the vaccine, especially since special storage conditions are required.
After discussions with some of our Healthcare customers and understanding what they needed as enhancements to our current Serial and Lot Control functionality, we have incorporated the priority requirements into our Inventory module where Serial Numbers, Lot ID’s and Expiration Dates are key for visibility and processing. We are providing enhanced searches where users may search for an Item using the Lot or Serial Control flag.
Where there is a field prompting for Lot ID, users have the option of searching for a Lot by various date availability and expiration options with the ability to search the results by latest or oldest date for FIFO distribution. Both Lot Availability and Expiration Date are now displayed in the results list. We’ve also enhanced key Inventory Inbound and Outbound transactions with this enhanced Lot selection and Expiration Date visibility.
Because it is an important shipment document to accompany movement of Items between locations, we’ve enhanced the Packing List document to display more detailed information for each shipment line. This information includes the Storage Rule, Temperature and Humidity requirements, Serial Number, Manufacturer and Manufacturer ID, and a listing of the source Lot ID and Expiration Date for each fulfillment quantity.
For more information and instructions on how to get this new functionality, please see the Blog on the PeopleSoft Apps Strategy Blog site.
This is great information and a HUGE thank you to Oracle for providing these features so quickly in such a difficult time!
