Assets Collection Refresh Schedule
The Assets collection is refreshed nightly, Monday through Friday, following the completion of BEN Assets batch processing (updates should usually be completed by start of business). In addition, the
ASSETS, ASSET_CATEGORIES and ASSET_LOCATIONS tables are captured in monthly snapshots at at the close of the BEN Assets period.
Source of the Data
The data in the Data Warehouse that is accessible via the Business Objects
BEN Assets universes comes from the BEN Assets module of the University's financial system, BEN Financials.
The universes also join to related tables in the General Ledger and Space@Penn data collections.
Time Span Covered
The Data Warehouse stores current information on building, fixed, movable and land assets, as well as historical information on assets, categories and locations. The data goes as
far back as March 2008, (the MAR-08 accounting period, in fiscal year
2008), when BEN Assets was implemented, and continues from that point, through the current open period.
