We were recently speaking with 2 of our B.C. clients on YTD asset costing and inventory tracking in Maximo – and rolling over these values as we head into 2019. Here are some useful references to keep on hand that we pulled together.
For Inventory the super-user or sys admin can zero the inventory YTD quantities at start of the year via the inventory UI: https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21515236 If the inventory YTD quantities are not reset at the start of the year, the same can be done at any point during the year but only via SQL scripts:
On the Asset side, the asset YTD costs can be reset via the UI: https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21995033
To rollup the asset costs in the hierarchy, Maximo provides a BIRT report that must be run manually or be scheduled. The following note also provides some useful tips on performance considerations when running the asset cost rollup report, especially when the rollup has not been done for a while. https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/blogs/5d8025d9-0449-47fc-9872-55f3b98e0636/entry/Maximo_Cost_Rollup_Reports?lang=en
