  • (Read tagline.) Although this diagram looks somewhat intimidating, there are a couple of key points that should be made. First, the diagram highlights the complexity of the Implementation. Each of the lines in the diagram represents data flow in one direction or the other. The modules in the top box reflect the FS & MM Management Implementation. To give you a sense of the interconnectivity, which is the second goal of this diagram, we can take a look at a fairly simple transaction such as purchasing a laptop. This transaction will involve the eProcurement and Purchasing modules, it will involve the Accounts Payable module, it will hit the General Ledger several times, be tracked in Asset Management and if it is a purchase from a Research & Trust account, will also involve project costing, and reporting from eFIN via the data warehouse. Although this example highlights the interconnectivity, it should also give you a sense of the importance of data integrity. That is, if something is entered incorrectly in one place it is going to have an impact on other modules and other departments. There are a couple of other points that need to be made regarding the FS & MM Implementation. First, eProj and eFIN, are not PS modules. eFIN will be a re-release of FIN and will extract data directly from the new data warehouse. eProj, which is also not a PS module, will be released to a central group first, and to the academic community later in the year. Finally, please note the red dotted line around the modules in the top frame. Various modules feed data directly to the Data Warehouse. For simplicity however, the specific connections have been omitted from this diagram. Finally, to wrap up discussion of this diagram -- the box in the bottom left corner highlights the Human Resources Implementation and modules involved. Those are HR, Time & Labour, eBenefits, and Payroll. The box in the bottom right corner is a placeholder for the Student Admin Implementation, if it goes forward.

    12. 12. Retirement Information Cost Activity Depreciation Activity Asset Transfers Asset Acquisition Asset List by Location Your UPK training shows you how to run reports in PeopleSoft Asset Management. There are other reports available (locations highlighted below). Although these reports are not necessarily required for the tasks you perform, you may find them useful. To find these reports go to Asset Management> Financial Reports >. . .
    13. 13. If you are running additional reports, it is important that you know when and how often batch jobs run. This will tell you the frequency of information update. <ul><li>Remember that asset information is not immediately migrated to the Asset Management module. </li></ul><ul><li>A weekly job moves information from the pre-AM tables to the AM module. </li></ul><ul><li>Depreciation Calculation begins once the data is in the AM module. </li></ul><ul><li>AM reports will show weekly depreciation and net book value, however depreciation only hits the GL once a month. </li></ul><ul><li>Depreciation is recorded only by fund and account in the GL and is not charged to departments. </li></ul>
