A new update to GCSS-Army adds these functions to the My Workplace user interface (version 5 or UI5):   
  • Create inventory
  • Manage inventory
  • Post inventory differences 
The updates, which include the entire physical inventory process for provisional materials, increase productivity by allowing users to conduct daily tasks with fewer errors.

Unlike the traditional transactions MI24 and MI31, which require several manual inputs in an assortment of fields, the UI5 interface provides user-friendly visual indicators called tiles. Tiles give the user a step-by-step process to follow to initiate the inventory by materiel requirements planning (MRP) type, material number, controlled item inventory code or recoverability code for the creation and counting process. Since the tiles are easier to understand, this approach can save time spent training users.
The interface:
  • provides visual indicators when open inventories are approaching the end of the month.
  • identifies materials that send workflow to the commander.
  • applies red text whenever there’s a negative loss.
And, just like other functions in the UI5 interface, managers can customize user access through transaction code ZAIT to personalize a user’s daily duties. For example, a customization can assign tasks such as dispatching and processing turn-ins, creating notification work orders or performing goods receipts and issue.
UI5’s new intuitive design and streamlined functionality improve the inventory process by saving time and increasing productivity for GCSS-A’s maintenance and supply users.
