Inventory in Oracle apps

  1. 1. BalajiBalajisun2008@gmail.comOracle InventoryInventoryOracle Inventory is one of Oracle‘s enterprise applications products. Oracle Inventory enables companies to satisfybusiness needs such as these:• Defining part numbers• Modeling organization structures• Tracking perpetual inventory• Maintaining accurate on-hand balances• Planning material replenishments• Forecasting anticipated demand
  2. 2. Implemenation of InventorySubmitted by Anonymous on Sat, 03/28/2009 - 16:55Tag:Inventory/The first step in ventroy implemenation is to design the flex field structures.
  3. 3. Of all the key flexfield system items is the most important. Its used to store the item information.Oracle Inventory FlexfieldsSubmitted by Anonymous on Fri, 04/17/2009 - 20:04Tag:Inventory/Oracle Inventory provides the following flexfields:1. System Items2. Item Catalogs3. Item Categories4. Stock Locators5. Account Aliases6. Sales OrdersDepending on your systems setup, Inventory may also use some or all of the followingflexfields provided by other Oracle products:Accounting (Oracle General Ledger)Sales Tax Location (Oracle Receivables)Territory (Oracle Receivables)1. System ItemsYou can use the System Items Flexfield (also called the Item Flexfield) for recording and reporting your iteminformation. You must design and configure your Item Flexfield before you can start defining items.
  4. 4. All Oracle Applications products that reference items share the Item Flexfield and support multiple-segmentimplementations. However, this flexfield supports only one structure.You must set up your OE: Item Flexfield profile option to specify the Item Flexfield structure that you will use for yourOracle applications.Users can also set up the OE: Item Flexfield Entry Method profile option to specify your preferred method of entryfor this flexfield.You can optionally use the item flexfield to default item information for invoice, debit memo, and credit memo lines oryou can enter your own line information.2. Item CatalogsThis key flexfield supports only one structure.
  5. 5. 3. Item CategoriesYou must design and configure your Item Categories Flexfield before you can start defining items since all items mustbe assigned to categories. You can define multiple structures for your Item Categories Flexfield, each structurecorresponding to a different category grouping scheme. You can then associate these structures with the categoriesand category sets you define.4. Stock LocatorsYou can use the Stock Locators Flexfield to capture more information about stock locators in inventory. If you do not
  6. 6. have Oracle Inventory installed, or none of your items have locator control, it is not necessary to set up this flexfield.If you keep track of specific locators such as aisle, row, bin indicators for your items, you need to configure yourStock Locators Flexfield and implement locator control in your organization.This key flexfield supports only one structure.5. Account AliasesThis key flexfield supports only one structure.
  7. 7. 6. Sales OrderThe Sales Order Flexfield is a key flexfield used by Oracle Inventory to uniquely identify sales order transactionsOracle Order Management interfaces to Oracle Inventory.Your Sales Order Flexfield should be defined as Order Number, Order Type, and Order Source. This combinationguarantees each transaction to Inventory is unique. You must define this flexfield before placing demand or makingreservations in Oracle Order Management.You must set up the OM: Source Code profile option to determine the source code you will use in for the thirdsegment of this flexfield to guarantee that each transaction is unique. (Oracle Inventory defaults the value of the OM:Source Code profile option to ORDER MANAGEMENT.)For your value sets, you must use Dynamic Inserts. The Validation Type should be None. Value Required should beYes to improve performance of concurrent programs. The value set must be alphanumeric. The value set maximumsize must be 40.You should set the Required field to Yes in the Validation Information region when enabling the flexfield segments.Setting this field to Yes, improves performance when updating existing demand or reservations by guaranteeing thatOracle Order Management always supplies a value.Set Right-justify Zero-fill Numbers to No so sales order numbers are not padded with zeros.Oracle Inventory defines a unique ID for each order in MTL_SALES_ORDERS based on this flexfield. The Inventoryunique ID, as opposed to the Order Management unique ID, is used throughout Oracle Manufacturing applications.Item CategoriesSubmitted by oracleug on Mon, 01/19/2009 - 18:03Tag:Inventory/
  8. 8. Categories are logical groupings of items that have similar characteristics. A category set is a distinct categorygrouping scheme and consists of categories.Each category grouping scheme can use different terminology for its categories, as well as different namingstructures based on number of segments. You can define multiple structures for your Item Categories flexfield. Youcan configure each flexfield structure by using as many segments and any level of value set validation that you need.When inventory is installed, a default category must be assigned to each of the following functional areas: Inventory,Purchasing, Order Entry, Costing, Engineering, and Planning. When an item is enabled for a functional area, it isassigned the default category set. You cannot delete the items default category set assignment. Default categoriesare required so that each functional area has at least one category set that contains all items in that functional area.For the functional areas, optionally, you can have a unique category set; for example, you may set up a uniquecategory set for Purchasing. It is also possible to have one category set defined to be the default category set for allfunctional areas.The complete set up of item categories is done in below 5 steps in sequence.
  9. 9. Item Category Flexfield StructuresSubmitted by Anonymous on Tue, 01/20/2009 - 11:31Tag:Inventory/You can define multiple segment structures for the Item Categories Flexfield. Each segment structure may have itsown display prompts and fields.When you install or upgrade Oracle Inventory or Oracle Purchasing, Oracle provides two category flexfield structuresby default: Item Categories and PO Item Category.Each segment structure can display prompts and fields that apply specifically to a particular naming convention. Forexample, you might want one of your category sets to use two segments for the names of categories. Another itemgrouping scheme might use just one segment for the names of categories. You choose a flexfield structure for everycategory set and category that you define.
  10. 10. 1. Lets create an item category as Procut Information with three segment: Product Line - Product Name - BrandNameProduct Line - Electronics, Machine, FMGProduct Name - Mobile, TV, Bus Engine, Soap, BiscuitBrand Name - LG, Samsung, Cummins, Britania2. Define all the value sets as shown below.3. Define the item category flex field.
  11. 11. 4. Filling up the value set of the stucture product information
  12. 12. Defining Item CategoriesSubmitted by Anonymous on Tue, 01/20/2009 - 11:53Tag:Inventory/Enter a flexfield Structure Name, a unique Category (value) for each structure segment, and a unique description forthe new category. If you want to make a category inactive, enter a date you want the category to be inactive on.Save your work.If you choose a multi–segment flexfield structure you can assign a specific meaning to each segment. For example inour case the category "Electronics.Mobile.Samsung" means an item assinged to this category is a samusng brandmobile device of elcetroincs product group.
  13. 13. Category SetsSubmitted by Anonymous on Tue, 01/20/2009 - 12:03Tag:Inventory/Category sets may be used as a means to develop custom lists of items on which to report and sort. You can alsocreate other category sets such as John‘s Priority or Jane‘s Priority, with categories like high, medium, and low.The category set Inventory is seeded when you install Oracle Inventory.The category set Purchasing is seeded when you install Oracle Purchasing.If you plan to use Order Management‘s group pricing functionality with item categories, you must add the categoriesto the Order Entry category set.Attention:1. You must use this window to define valid categories for each purchasing category set before you can use OraclePurchasing.2. For the Controlled At level, if the item defining attribute of the functional area (e.g. Inventory‘s is Inventory Item) iscontrolled at the Organization level, then the new default Category Set should also be controlled at the Organizationlevel.
  14. 14. Enter a unique category set Name and Description. In the Flex Structure section, enter which flexfield structure is tobe used. The categories assigned to the category set must have the same flexfield structure as the set itself. Selecta control level and a default category.You will then need to select Enforce List of Valid Categories if you want validation of the categories at the time ofinput. You will then enter in or select the valid categories for the category set.Assigning Items to CategoriesSubmitted by Anonymous on Tue, 01/20/2009 - 12:34Tag:Inventory/When you enable an item in a functional area, the item is assigned to the default (mandatory) category set anddefault category of the functional area. You can override the category set‘s default category. In addition, you canmanually assign your item to an unlimited number of category sets. You may optionally assign an item to more thanone category within a category set based on the category set definition.
  15. 15. When you assign your item to another organization Oracle Inventory copies Master level category sets, Organizationlevel default category sets, and the associated categories assigned in the Item Master organization. This means thatif you manually assign an Organization level category set to the item in the Master organization, Inventory does notcopy over that Organization level category set when you assign that item to another organization.After assigning an item to another organization you can disable the item for one or more functional areas in the neworganization. However, Inventory does not remove the corresponding functional area‘s default category set. Forexample, you may have set the value of the Purchased attribute to ‖Yes‖ when you defined the item in the itemmaster organization. When you assign this item to another organization Inventory copies over the ‖Yes‖ value of thePurchased attribute andtherefore assigns the default category set of the purchasing functional area. In the new organization you may decideto set the value of the Purchased attribute to ‖No.‖ After you disable the item for the purchasing functional area in thenew organization, the item still retains the purchasing default category set. You may manually delete the purchasingcategory set in the new organization.If you copy an item from another item with category sets defined at the Organization level, Inventory assigns the newitem the default categories of the mandatory category sets, even if the original item did not have the defaultcategories. This is because Inventory copies the values of the item defining attributes and not the category sets andcategories themselves.Default Category SetsSubmitted by Anonymous on Tue, 01/20/2009 - 12:26Tag:Inventory/
  16. 16. set to each of the following functional areas: Inventory, Purchasing, Order Management, Costing, Engineering, andPlanning. Product Line Accounting is seeded with the Inventory category set. Inventory makes the default categoryset mandatory for all items defined for use by a functional area. If your item is enabled for a particular functional areayou cannot delete the item‘s corresponding default category set assignment. Default category sets are required sothat each functional area has at least one category set that contains all items in that functional area.You can enable an item for each functional area by using that functional area‘s item defining attribute. An itemdefining attribute identifies the nature of an item. For example, what designates an item as an ―engineering item‖ isthe attribute Engineering Item. If a functional area‘s item defining attribute is controlled at the Organization level, thenthat functional area may only have an Organization level default category set.When you enable an item for a certain functional area, Oracle Inventory automatically assigns the item to the defaultcategory set of that functional area and the default category of that set. For example, if you set Inventory Item to Yes,then Inventory automatically assigns the item to the Inventory functional area‘s default category set and defaultcategory.You may change a functional area‘s default category set under certain conditions. You should ensure that every itemwithin the functional area belongs to the new default category set (which replaces the existing default category set). Ifthe item defining attribute of the functional area is controlled at the Organization level then the new default categoryset should also be controlled at the Organization level.
  17. 17. Item CatalogSubmitted by Anonymous on Wed, 01/21/2009 - 10:13Tag:Inventory/An item catalog group is a standard set of descriptive elements to which you assign items. Examples of catalogdescriptive elements are color, shape, length, and so on. For example, a textile manufacturer might define patternattributes such as color, size, texture, and style.Usage: An electronics company (say Samsung) can use thecatalog to incorporate length, breadth and height of eachmobile it produces. As the company Samsung also producesother electronics products such as TV, Refrigerator and etc.We should first create an item category as mobile and thencreate a catalog group as mobile-catalog with three catalogslength-breadth and height.Defining and Using Item CatalogsFollow these steps to define and use item catalogs:1 Define the item catalog group.
  18. 18. 2 Define descriptive elements within each catalog group.3 Enter categories for the catalog groups.Items belonging to the above category are attached with the descriptive element of the catalog.
  19. 19. 4 Enter descriptive element values for each item.5 Update item descriptions with catalog group and descriptive element values.
  20. 20. 6 Search for items using descriptive elements as the search criteria.
  21. 21. Searching all the items with bredth 20.Stock LocatorsSubmitted by oracleug on Thu, 01/22/2009 - 14:41Tag:Inventory/
  22. 22. You use locators to identify physical areas where you store inventory items. Item quantities can be tracked by locator.Items can also be restricted to specific locators.1. Add the segment values of the KFF stock locator.Navigation : GL -> Financials -> Flexfields -> Key -> Values
  23. 23. 2. Enter the new locator in locator form which can be accessed from below navigation or on subinventory form.Navigation : Inventory -> Set up -> Stock Locator
  24. 24. 1. Locator Type: Indicate the locator type available choices are as follows: Dock Door, Receiving, InspectionStation, Storage Locator, Consolidation Locator, Staging Lane, Packing Station. Dock doors are used inOracle Warehouse Management environments only.2. Indicate the material status of this locator, which controls the enabled transactions for all material in this locator.The status is not overridden by the status of any ubinventory, lot or serial, within this locator. The statuses of thoseobjects will be considered whendetermining transactions that are not enabled. This field is used if you have Oracle Warehouse Managementinstalled.3. Enter the subinventory where the locator resides.4. Enter a picking order value indicating the priority for picking items from this locator relative to another locator. Thisvalue is used by Oracle Warehouse Managment to sequence picking tasks. A picking order of 1 means that ordermanagement functions pick items from this locator before other locators with a higher number (2, 3, and so on). If youhave Oracle Warehouse Management installed, this field determines the picking path through the warehouse and notthe order in which material is allocated for a sales order.5. Enter a dropping order to indicate the priority for dropping items in this locator relative to another locator. Oraclewarehouse management uses this value to sequence tasks.6. Enter the inactive date for the locator. This is the date the locator becomes inactive.Defining Account AliasesSubmitted by Anonymous on Thu, 01/29/2009 - 11:10Tag:Account Receivables
  25. 25. /An account alias is an easily recognized name or label representing a general ledger account number. You can view,report, and reserve against an account alias. During a transaction, you can use the account alias instead of anaccount number to refer to the account.Inventory Period CloseSubmitted by Anonymous on Fri, 12/25/2009 - 14:18Tag:Inventory/The period close process for perpetual costing enables you to1. Summarize costs related to inventory and manufacturing activities for a given accounting period.2. Distribute those costs to the general ledger.3. Calculates ending period subinventory values.4. Closes the open period for Inventory and Work in Process.Generally, you should open and close periods for each separate inventory organization independently. Bykeeping only one period open, you can ensure that your transactions are dated correctly and posted to the
  26. 26. correct accounting period. (For month–end adjustment purposes, you can temporarily hold multiple openperiods.)The accounting periods and the period close process in Cost Management use the same periods, fiscalcalendar, and other financial information found in General Ledger.Inventory and work in process transactions automatically create accounting entries. All accounting entrieshave transaction dates that belong in one accounting period. You can report and reconcile your transactionactivity to an accounting period and General Ledger. You can transfer summary or detail transactions toGeneral Ledger. You can transfer these entries to General Ledger when you close the period or performinterim transfers.When you transfer to General Ledger, a general ledger (GL) batch ID and organization code are sent withthe transferred entries. You can review and report the GL batch number in General Ledger and requestInventory and Work in Process reports by the same batch number. You can also view general ledgertransfers in Inventory and drill down by GL batch ID into the inventory and WIP accounting distributions.Note: Purchasing holds the accounting entries for receipts into receiving inspection and for deliveries into expensedestinations. This includes any perpetual receipt accruals.Purchasing also has a separate period open and close, andusesseparate processes to load the general ledger interface.Closes Open PeriodThe period close process permanently closes an open period. You can no longer charge transactions to a closedperiod. Once you close a period, it cannot be reopened. As a precaution, you can do a GL transfer without closing theperiod.Transfers Accounting Entries to the General LedgerIf your inventory organization‘s parameter for Transfer to GL is None, perpetual accounting entries are not transferredto the General Ledger. The other choices for the Transfer to GL parameter are Summary and Detail, indicatingwhether the period close process creates summary or detail transactions for posting to the general ledger. The periodcloseprocess transfers the following information:• work in process transactions• job costs and variances• period costs for expense non–standard jobs• depending on the selected options, the remaining balances forrepetitive schedulesNote: If you have chosen the new Periodic Costing feature, Cost Management warns you of the possibility ofinadvertentlyposting both Periodic and perpetual costed transactions to the General Ledger. The warning displays if there is atleast onelegal entity–cost type combination that has the Periodic Cost Post Entries to GL option checked, where theorganizationunder that legal entity also has the perpetual cost GL transfer enabled.Calculates Ending Period Subinventory ValuesFor each subinventory, the period close adds the net transaction value for the current period to the prior period‘sending value. This, along with values intransit, creates the ending value for the current period.Inventory Period CloseSubmitted by Anonymous on Fri, 12/25/2009 - 14:18Tag:Inventory/The period close process for perpetual costing enables you to

Bykeeping only one period open, you can ensure that your transactions are dated correctly and posted to thecorrect accounting period. (For month–end adjustment purposes, you can temporarily hold multiple openperiods.)The accounting periods and the period close process in Cost Management use the same periods, fiscalcalendar, and other financial information found in General Ledger.Inventory and work in process transactions automatically create accounting entries. All accounting entrieshave transaction dates that belong in one accounting period. You can report and reconcile your transactionactivity to an accounting period and General Ledger. You can transfer summary or detail transactions toGeneral Ledger. You can transfer these entries to General Ledger when you close the period or performinterim transfers.When you transfer to General Ledger, a general ledger (GL) batch ID and organization code are sent withthe transferred entries. You can review and report the GL batch number in General Ledger and requestInventory and Work in Process reports by the same batch number. You can also view general ledgertransfers in Inventory and drill down by GL batch ID into the inventory and WIP accounting distributions.Note: Purchasing holds the accounting entries for receipts into receiving inspection and for deliveries into expensedestinations. This includes any perpetual receipt accruals.Purchasing also has a separate period open and close, andusesseparate processes to load the general ledger interface.Closes Open PeriodThe period close process permanently closes an open period. You can no longer charge transactions to a closedperiod. Once you close a period, it cannot be reopened. As a precaution, you can do a GL transfer without closing theperiod.Transfers Accounting Entries to the General LedgerIf your inventory organization‘s parameter for Transfer to GL is None, perpetual accounting entries are not transferredto the General Ledger. The other choices for the Transfer to GL parameter are Summary and Detail, indicatingwhether the period close process creates summary or detail transactions for posting to the general ledger. The periodcloseprocess transfers the following information:• work in process transactions• job costs and variances• period costs for expense non–standard jobs• depending on the selected options, the remaining balances forrepetitive schedulesNote: If you have chosen the new Periodic Costing feature, Cost Management warns you of the possibility ofinadvertentlyposting both Periodic and perpetual costed transactions to the General Ledger. The warning displays if there is atleast onelegal entity–cost type combination that has the Periodic Cost Post Entries to GL option checked, where theorganizationunder that legal entity also has the perpetual cost GL transfer enabled.Calculates Ending Period Subinventory ValuesFor each subinventory, the period close adds the net transaction value for the current period to the prior period‘sending value. This, along with values intransit, creates the ending value for the current period.Transfer Transactions to General LedgerSubmitted by Anonymous on Fri, 12/25/2009 - 16:00Tag:
  28. 28. Inventory/You can perform the general ledger transfer at any time during an open period—not just at period close. Interimtransfers allow you to reconcile and transfer information weekly, making the month–end period close process muchsimpler andfaster.The general ledger transfer loads summary or detail accounting activity for any open period into the general ledgerinterface, including both inventory and work in process entries. When more than one period is open, the transferselects transactions from the first open period, up to the entered transfer date, and passes the correct accountingdate and financial information into the general ledger interface.For example, when you transfer detail entries, the transaction date is the accounting date with a line for line transfer.When you transfer summary entries with two periods open and enter a transfer date in the second period, the transferprocess assigns the period one end date for all the summarized transactions in period one and assigns the enteredtransfer date for the summarized transactions in period two.For each inventory organization, Cost Management transfers transactions to the general ledger interface table, linefor line. If you transfer summary information, Cost Management groups transactions by GL batch, by journalcategory, by currency code, and by account.Attention: Transfer in detail only if you have low transaction volumes. Transferring large amounts of detailtransactions canadversely affect General Ledger performance.For both detail and summary transfers, Cost Management passes the organization code, GL batch number, batchdescription, and batch date. When you transfer in detail, you also pass the material or work in process transactionnumber. In General Ledger, you can see the transferred information, as follows:
  29. 29. Cost Management uses the journal source Inventory for both inventory and work in process transactions.The journal categories Inventory and Work in Process distinguish between inventory and work in processtransactions.Using Journal Import and Post Journals processes in General Ledger, you can then post this information to thegeneral ledger.Period Summarization ProcessSummarization of transaction records for the open period is the last step in period close. You have the option toperform this process automatically or manually using the profile option, CST:Period Summary. If the profile option isset to Automatic, the period is closed and summarized when you change the period status from Open to Closed.If the profile option is set to Manual, you can delay summarization – but you must summarize these delayed periodsin accounting period order. For example, if you delay summarization for a given period, the following period cannot besummarized until the previous period is summarized. In situations where summarization is delayed, the longer thedelay – the larger the number of transaction records needed for reconciliation purposes. This situation can causesummarization to takemore time to complete.If you do not choose to summarize periods, set the period status to Closed not Summarized.The Period Close Reconciliation report is used to compare account balances with inventory value at period end. Youcan run the report in simulation mode by generating it for an open period. The report can be generated at any timeduring the period.Inventory Pending TransactionSubmitted by Anonymous on Fri, 03/27/2009 - 14:40
  30. 30. Tag:Inventory/Users can see the number of pending transactions by navigating to the Inventory Accounting Periods Form.Navigate > Cost > Accounting Close Cycle > Inventory Accounting PeriodsPlace cursor on the appropriate open accounting period and click on the [Pending] Button. There are three zonestitled ―Resolution Required‖, ―Resolution Recommended‖ and ―Unprocessed Shipping Transactions‖.Unprocessed material transactions exist for this periodThis message indicates you have unprocessed material transactions in theMTL_MATERIAL_TRANSACTIONS_TEMP table. You are unable to close the period with this condition. Please seeyour system administrator. Inventory considers entries in this table as part of the quantity movement.Closing the period in this situation is not allowed because the resultant accounting entries would have a transactiondate for a closed period, and never be picked up by the period close or general ledger transfer process.Uncosted material transactions exist for this periodThis message indicates you have material transactions in the MTL_MATERIAL_TRANSACTIONS table with noaccounting entries (Standard Costing) and no accounting entries and no costs (Average Costing). You are unable toclose the period with this condition. These transactions are part of your inventory value.Closing the period in this situation is not allowed because the resultant accounting entries would have a transactiondate for a closed period, and never be picked up by the period close or general ledger transfer process.Pending WIP costing transactions exist in this periodThis message indicates you have unprocessed resource and overhead accounting transactions in theWIP_COST_TXN_INTERFACE table. You are unable to close the period with this condition. These transactions arein your work in process value, and awaiting further processing.Closing the period in this situation is not allowed because the resultant accounting entries would have a transactiondate for a closed period, and never be picked up by the period close or general ledger transfer process.
  31. 31. Unprocessed Shipping Transactions―Pending Transactions‖ in the Unprocessed Shipping Transactions zone indicate there are transactions in theWSH_DELIVERY_DETAILS table in a status of shipped.Pending receiving transactions for this periodWhen you use Purchasing, this message indicates you have unprocessed purchasing transactions in theRCV_TRANSACTIONS_ INTERFACE table. These transactions include purchase order receipts and returns forinventory. If this condition exists, you will receive a warning but will be able to close the accounting period. Thesetransactions are not in your receiving value. However, after you close the period, these transactions cannot beprocessed because they have a transaction date for a closed period.Pending material transactions for this periodThis message indicates you have unprocessed material transactions in the MTL_TRANSACTIONS_INTERFACEtable. If this condition exists, you will receive a warning but will be able to close the accounting period. Thesetransactions are not in your inventory value. However, after you close the period, these transactions cannot beprocessed because they have a transaction date for a closed period.Pending move transactions for this periodThis message indicates you have unprocessed shop floor move transactions in the WIP_MOVE_TXN_INTERFACEtable.

  32. 32. 1. Enter all transactions.Be sure you enter all transactions for the period. Perform all issues,receipts, and adjustments. Verify that no hardcopy records exist or are waiting for data entry, such as packing slips in receiving.2. Check Inventory and Work in Process transaction interfaces.You can set up the material and movetransaction managers to execute transactions immediately, then submit an immediate concurrent request to execute,or submit a concurrent request periodically at a time interval you specify. If you do not use immediate processing, orinterface external transactions, check the Inventory material transaction manager and the Work in Process movetransaction manager before closing the period.3. Check Cost Management cost interfaces.Cost Management processes your inventory and work in process accounting transactions as a concurrent request,using a specified time interval. Before you close the period, you should check that the Cost Manager is active.4. Check Order Management transaction processes. If you use Order Management, ensure that all sales ordertransaction processes complete and transfer successfully to Inventory.5. Review Inventory transactions.Before you close a period, review all of the transactions using the Material Account Distribution Report for the periodwith a high dollar value and/or a high transaction quantity. Check that you charged the proper accounts. Correctingimproper account charges before you close a period is easier than creating manual journalentries.6. Balance perpetual inventory.Check that your ending perpetual inventory value for the period being closed matches the value you report in thegeneral ledger. Perpetual inventory value normally balances automatically with the general ledger. However, one ofthe following sources can create a discrepancy:– Other inventory journal entries. Journal entries from products other than Inventory that affect the inventoryaccounts.– Charges to improper accounts: For example, you issued material from a subinventory to a miscellaneous account,but used one of the subinventory accounts as that miscellaneous account.– Issue to miscellaneous account: For example, the following miscellaneous transaction issue would cause an out ofbalance situation: debit account specified at transaction 123, credit subinventory valuation account 123. The debitand credit net to zero with no financial charge, but since the inventory quantity decreased, the month–end inventoryvaluation reports will not equal the general ledger account balance.– Transactions after period end reports. This occurs when you run the end of month inventory valuation reportsbefore you complete all transactions for the period.If you do not run the inventory reports at period end, you can also run these Reports:– Inventory Value Report– Material Account Distribution Detail Report– Material Account Distribution Summary Report– Period Close Summary Report– Period Close Reconciliation report– Inventory Subledger Report (Average Costing Only)In a organization using Project Manufacturing Average Costing, if there is more than one cost group, the followingvaluation reports should not be used for reconciliation purposes because these reports list the average value acrosscost groups.– Transaction historical Summary Report– Receiving Value Report– All Inventories Value Report– Elemental Inventory Value Report– Subinventory Account Value Report– Item Cost Report7. Validate Work in Process inventory.If you use Work in Process, check work in process inventory balances against transactions with the WIP AccountDistribution Report.
  33. 33. 8. Transfer transactions in advance of closing period (optional).If time permits, run the general ledger transfer process up to the period end date before closing the period.Closing a period executes the general ledger transfer automatically. However, you can also run this process withoutclosing a period using Transfer Transactions to General Ledger. Since you cannot reopen a closed period, runningthis process before period close allows you to proof the interfaced transactions and make adjustments to the periodvia new inventory transactions as necessary.9. Close Oracle Payables and Oracle Purchasing.If you use Payables and Purchasing, you need to close the accounting periods in the following order:– Payables– Purchasing– InventoryIf you only use Purchasing and Inventory, you need to close Purchasing first. Close Payables before Purchasing, inpreparation for accruing expenses on uninvoiced receipts. Doing so ensures that all new payables activity is for thenew month and you do not inadvertently match a prior month invoice in payables to a new month receipt. When youclose Purchasing or Inventory, you cannot enter a receipt for that period. However, as a manual procedure, closePurchasing before Inventory. This still allows miscellaneous transaction corrections in Inventory.10. Run the Period Close Reconciliation report.This report automatically runs in simulation mode for the open period. It is used to match account balances withinventory value at period end.11. Close the accounting period and automatically transfer transactions to the general ledger.This sets your Inventory Accounting Period status to Closed not Summarized. If the CST: Period Summary profileoption is set to Automatic, no other steps are necessary. The period status is set to Closed when the summarizationprocess has completed.12. If the CST: Period Summary profile option is set to Manual, create period summarization transactions bygenerating the Period Close Reconciliation report.The concurrent program creates summarized transaction records, and displays the differences between accountbalances and inventory value.Units of MeasureSubmitted by oracleug on Mon, 04/20/2009 - 10:11Tag:Inventory/Oracle Inventory provides you with powerful methods for defining and manipulating units of measure. You can easilyconvert between the units of measure you define. This enables you to manufacture, order, or receive items in any unitof measure. With units of measure you can:1. Define unit of measure classes,2. Define units of measure,3. Define unit of measure conversions,4. Define lot-specific unit of measure conversionsDefining Unit of Measure ClassesUnit of measure classes represent groups of units of measure with similar characteristics.Creating unit of measure classes is the first step in unit of measure management. Each unit of measure youdefine must belong to a unit of measure class.
  34. 34. Each class has a base unit of measure. The base unit of measure is used to perform conversions betweenunits of measure in the class. For this reason, the base unit of measure should be representative of theother units of measure in the class, and generally one of the smaller units. For example, you could use CU(cubic feet) as the base unit of a class called Volume.Unit of measure classes are not organization-specific. Default unit of measure classes are not provided.1. Enter a unique name for the unit of measure class.2. Define the base unit of measure for this class.3.

Itemspecific: Only uses unit of measure conversions unique to this item. If none exist, you can only transactthis item in its primary unit of measure.2. Standard: Uses standard unit of measure conversions for this item if an item-specific conversion is notavailable.3. Both: Uses both item-specific and standard unit of measure conversions. If both exist for the same unit ofmeasure and item combination, the item-specific conversion is used.Unit of Measure Conversions During TransactionsWhenever you enter an items quantity, the default is the primary unit of measure for the item. The list of values forthe unit of measure field displays all units of measure for which you have defined standard and/or item-specificconversions from the primary unit of measure.Transactions are performed in the unit of measure you specify. The conversion happens automatically and itemquantities are updated in the primary unit of measure of the item.Important: Inventory transactions and on hand balance supports decimal precision to 5 digits after the decimal point.Oracle Work in Process supports decimal precision to 6 digits. Other Oracle Applications support different decimalprecision. As a result of the decimal precision mismatch, transactions another Oracle Application passes may berounded when processed by Inventory. If the transaction quantity is rounded to zero, Inventory does not process thetransaction.It is therefore suggested that the base unit of measure for an item is set up such that transaction quantities in thebase unit of measure not require greater than 5 digits of decimal precision.

This enables you toestablish more granular control over the transactional quantities of a lot. For example, the standard inter-classconversion for a lot controlled item is one gallon equals 15 pounds; however, when you receive a particular lot of theitem, 1 gallon equals 16 pounds. You can create a lot specific unit of measure for this instance.You can create lot-specific unit of measure conversions for on-hand lots or lots with a zero balance. If you create alot-specific conversion for a lot with on-hand quantities, you can automatically update the quantities in the system tomore accurately reflect the on-hand quantity.You can also view the history of changes made to the lot unit of measure conversion, and the corresponding quantitychanges.

Oracle Shipping Execution submits requests to Oracle Inventory, which usesthe information you enter in the Picking Rules window to generate pick lists for sales orders.If you choose None for any of the criteria fields, Inventory ignores that criterion. For example, if you choose None forRevision, Inventory picks units of an item without regard to revision levels.Oracle Inventory looks at the picking criteria in the order in which they appear in the Picking Rules window. Then,Inventory looks at the options (except for None options) for each criterion in the order in which they appear beneatheach criterion.To define a picking rule

  48. 48. Inventory/MTL_TRANSACTIONS_INTERFACE table is the Interface between non-Inventory applications and the InventoryTransactions module. In other words any other module other than Inventory that wants to update Inventory has tocome through this table. Modules such as WIP (Work In Progress) and OE (Order Entry) first pass their records tothe MTL_TRANSACTIONS_INTERFACE (MTI)for validation.There is an Interface Manager called the Transactions Manager (INCTCM) which reads records from this table,validates them and moves the successful transactions onto MTL_MATERIAL_TRANSACTIONS_TEMP, and submitsTransaction workers (sub-processes - INCTCW) which then processes these records through inventory. This processconsists of data derivation, validation, and transfer of records from MTL_TRANSCTIONS_INTERFACE,MTL_TRANSACTIONS_LOTS_INTERFACE and MTL_SERIAL_NUMBERS_INTERFACE into their respectiveTEMP (temporary) tables from where the transactions processor processes them.Both the Lots and Serial number tables above are used when items being updated are under Lot or Serial numbercontrol. Example :- In the case of an Sales Order, the item is being shipped to a client so the lot and serial number ifbeing used, this needs to be updated to show that it is no longer available in Inventory stock.It is important to note that in general the processors will not move the transactions from this table if the following fieldsare not set as follows.LOCK_FLAG = 2PROCESS_FLAG = 1transaction_mode = 3Once the transactions have been passed to this table after initial validation by the Transactions Manager (INCTCM)from the MTL_TRANSACTIONS_INTERFACE a job id is attached and a Transactions Worker (INCTCW) issubmitted by the INCTCM process in order to the get the records processed and moved to theMTL_MATERIAL_TRANSACTONS table.This table is also used by Inventory Module and Purchasing module which writes directly onto this table for anytransactions entered within itself and each transaction in turn through a process of strict validation.Inventory Module Forms like Miscellaneous transactions writes directly into this table. The transactions which aredone through these form are on-line processing. It is from here that the inventory quantities finally getupdated,serial/lot numbers get marked as being used.Enterprise StructureInventory
  49. 49. /You must plan how Oracle Inventory represents your company‘s inventory sites and business units. This includesdefining organizations, locations, subinventories, and locators depending on your company structure. You also mustplan how to implement certain parameters and what level of the structure controls them.Multi-org often refers to an Oracle Applications setup used to enable multiple business units in a single install. Withmulti-org, a business enterprise may set up multiple business units with differing sets of books, operating units, andlegal entities all within a single instance. With multi-org, goods my be sold out of one operating unit or legal entityand shipped out of another, and the system will process an intercompany sale to properly account for it.Multi-org, however, should not be mistaken for installs with multiple inventory organizations. You do not have to useOracle Applications multi-org to support multiple inventory organizations if all the inventory organizations share thesame set of books, operating unit, and legal entity.Location: A location is simply a name and address, and is assigned to an organization or used to indicate deliveryinformation on a purchase order. You may define as many locations as you like, but only one location may beassigned to an inventory organization.Business group is a group of companies that does business in different markets under common administrative orfinancial control whose members are linked by relations of interpersonal trust on the bases of similar personal ethnicor commercial background a business group.
  50. 50. Set of Books (SOB): The financial entity that represents the chart of accounts, fiscal calendar, and base currency.The SOB is set up in the General Ledger.Legal Entity Organization: An entity used to represent a legal company. Fiscal and tax reporting are done at theLegal Entity level.A legal employer is a legal entity that is responsible for employing people in a particular country. Therefore, if youemploy people in a country, then you must have at least one organization classified as a legal entity and a legalemployer.The Configuration Workbench classifies an organization as a GRE/Legal Entity where your enterprise operates in acountry, and classifies it as an Employer if you employ people in that country also. For example, you can have a legalentity in a country where you do business, but do not employ people in that country.Operating Unit Organization: A business unit that shares a common Purchasing, Accounts Payable, Order Entryand Accounts Receivable setup. An operating unit may consist of multiple inventory organizations, with multiplemanufacturing sites, distribution centers, and sales offices, but they share a common sales order and purchase ordersystem. For example, a sales order may have lines shipping from different inventory organizations or a purchaseorder may have lines destined for different inventory organizations.Inventory Organization: An entity used to represent a manufacturing or distribution site. Inventory organizationsare where a user tracks on-hand balances, manufactures goods, and transacts the daily ins and outs of materialmovement. An inventory organization is the lowest level entity for costing goods, planning material requirements, andsecuring system access. Only a single address may be assigned to an Inventory Organization. An inventoryorganization is assigned a Set of Books which determines the chart of accounts, fiscal calendar, and base currencyfor all financial and value added activities that occur within the organization.Inventory Organizations are also assigned to a Legal Entity Organization and an Operating Unit Organization.A variation on the inventory organization is the master item organization. Generally, with Oracle Applications a singleinventory organization is created and designated at the master organization. Items are defined first in the masterorganization, then enabled in other inventory organizations as necessary. Some of the item attributes are set ascontrolled at the master organization and therefore the attribute values cannot be updated within individual inventoryorganizations. Category sets may also be designated as master organization level. Cross-references are alsomaster level only or master level optional as well.Subinventory: Physical or logical locations for storing inventory. Subinventories are generally defined to representthe main stores area as well as stocking points on the production floor. Additional subinventories may be used tospecify supply closets or cabinets and the cage area for discrepant material. Subinventories are flagged as toavailability for planning (nettable), reservations, and available to promise checks, thereby determining the availabilityof the material stored in the subinventory. Subinventories are assigned material asset account numbers. As goodsmove in and out of a subinventory a transaction posts to the asset account.Stock Locator: A physical area within a stockroom. The stock locator is a key flexfield that is often defined as amultiple segment flexfield with the segments representing the physical layout of a stockroom. For example, astockroom may be laid out in rows of shelves with bins on the shelves, each numbered so that a row/shelf/bincombination would direct someone to a particular material storage compartment. Such an implementation woulddefine a locator flexfield as a 3 segment flexfield with segments for row, shelf, and bin.Attachment of LE/OU/INV with BGWe never attach any LE/OU/INV with BG in front end...but its available in HR_ALL_ORGANIZATION_UNITS incolumn Business_Group_ID..so the question is from where it comes?First we create a Business Group. When ever we create a business group the system creates an organization withtype businessgroup and attach a business group ID N which is same as the organization ID for that Business group.After that we attach the business group to a responsibility through the profile option HR : Business Group.Next we create whenever we create a new LE/OU/Inv with one responsibility the system ll attach the Business Groupwhich is attached with the HR : Business group for that particular responsibility.

Defining PlannersSubmitted by Anonymous on Mon, 04/27/2009 - 01:14Tag:Inventory/You can define and update material planners or planning entities for the current organization and assign them toinventory items at the organization level.To define and update material planners or planning entities:1. Navigate to the Planners window.2. Enter a unique planner name. A planner can be a person or an entity, such as a department or a division.3. Enter the electronic mail address of the planner.4. Optionally, enter a date on which the planner becomes inactive. From this date on, you cannot assign this plannerto an inventory item.

  53. 53. Locations are shared across Business Groups in HRMS and with two other Oracleapplications: Inventory andPurchasing. HRMS does not use some of the fields in the Location window. These fieldsare disabled for HRMS users. For example, the Legal Address check box is read-only and supports futurefunctionality in Oracle Financials.HeaderUncheck the Global check box if you want the location to only be available within the default Business Group of yourcurrent responsibility. Accept the default if you want the location to be a global location and therefore available to allBusiness Groups. If you are setting up a global location, the location name must be unique across all BusinessGroups. If you are setting up a location for one Business Group, the location name must be unique within thatBusiness Group and all global locations, but does not have to be unique across all Business Groups.Note: You cannot amend the Global check box once you have set up your location.Address Details TabSelect a national address style from the list. If a local address style exists for your country, it is displayed as thedefault. Otherwise, the international style is displayed.Shipping DetailsSelecting the check boxes means that you are making the location Name a valid location in the list of values on aPurchasingdocument. For example, selecting Ship–To Site makes the location Name a valid choice in the list of values for theShip–To field on a purchase order header. Note that if you define a default Ship–To or Bill–To Location in theSupplier–Purchasing region of the Financials Options window for your organization, that is the location that defaultsonto your purchase orders. But if you wanted to change that default, the location Name that you define here andenable as a Ship–To or Bill–To site is available in the list of values for you to choose from in the Ship–To or Bill–Tofields.
  54. 54. Contact: Optional contact name for the location Name.Ship–To Location : Its the receving dock. Usually the same as the location Name. You could select a separate,previously defined Ship–To Location—for example, if you wanted to create a location Name, Office A, and specifyReceiving Dock A as its Ship–To Location. Note, however, that once you specify a separate Ship–To Location, youcan no longer enable the location Name as a Ship–To Site. In this example, Receiving Dock A is the ship–to site forOffice A; therefore, Office A itself cannot also be the ship–to site.Ship–To Site: Is this location is a receving dock. Select this option to make the location Name a valid ship–toorganization on a purchase order or requisition.Bill–To Site: Select this option to make the location Name a valid bill–to site. The Bill–To Site, which is used byPayables, is specified on a purchase order header.Receiving Site: Select this option to make the location a valid receiving Location when creating a receipt or receivingtransaction.Office Site: Select this option to indicate that this location Name is an office site, such as a field office.Internal Site: Select this option to make the location a valid internal ship–to location when creating an internalrequisition.Other DetailsInventory Organization: Select an inventory organization within which this location will be available in the list of valueson a Purchasing document. By selecting no inventory organization, this location becomes available on Purchasingdocumentsin all organizations.

Enter a name for your organization in the Name field. A check is performed to see if organizations with the samename already exist.All Oracle applications you install share the information entered in the Organization window. Therefore organizationnames must be unique within a business group, and business group names must be unique across your applicationsnetwork.You can create two organizations with the same name in different business groups but this can cause confusion later,if the HR: Cross business group profile option is set to Yes and you decide to share certain information across allbusiness groups. If you decide to create two organizations with the same name, be sure that this will not cause youproblems in the future.2.

This should be early enough to include any historical information you need toenter.Note: You cannot assign an employee to an organization before the start date of the organization.4. Enter a location, if one exists. You can also enter an internal address to add more details such as floor or officenumber.If you are using Oracle Payroll in the US, every organization to which employees can have assignments, includingbusiness groups, must have on record a location with a complete address. This is because the system uses thelocation of the organization of the employees primary assignment to determine employee work locations for taxpurposes. This does not apply to GREs, because the assignment to a GRE exists in addition to the assignment to anorganization.For Dutch users only, if you are setting up external organizations for a tax office, a social insurance provider or aprivate health insurance provider, you must enter the postal address and contact details using theNL_POSTAL_ADDRESS Location EIT.Note: If you are an Oracle Inventory user, then you must not assign a location to more than one organizationclassified as an Inventory Organization.
  56. 56. 5. Enter internal or external in the Internal or External field.

  60. 60. SubinventoriesSubmitted by Anonymous on Thu, 01/22/2009 - 12:24Tag:Inventory/Subinventories are unique physical or logical separations of material inventory, such as raw inventory, finishedgoods, or defective material. All material within an organization resides in a subinventory. There are two types ofsubinventories within Warehouse Management, storage and receiving.Storage subinventories are intermediate or final put away locations for material. Material that resides in a storagesubinventory appears in on hand quantity, and is tracked by the system. The system can book orders against, anduse manufacturing processes on material that resides in a storage subinventory. You must define at least onestorage subinventory for your implementation.Optionally, you can create receiving subinventories to track material in the receiving area. You use receivingsubinventories when you want to track the material as soon as it enters the warehouse before an operator puts itaway. Receiving subinventories enable managers to see where the material resides as soon as it enters thewarehouse. Material located in a receiving subinventory does not appear in on hand quantity, and the system cannotreserve the material.
  61. 61. An operator can also only specify a receiving subinventory if they are using a mobile device to receive the material.Note: Operators cannot transfer material from a storage subinventory to a receiving subinventory.All material within an organization is held in a subinventory therefore, you must define at least one subinventory.
  62. 62. When you create a new subinventory the subinventory is only available to the inventory org(M1 in above pic)where you are creating it.Table : MTL_SECONDARY_INVENTORIESDefine new SubinventorySubmitted by Anonymous on Thu, 01/22/2009 - 13:03Tag:Inventory/Select a source type for item replenishment.Header1.

You can specify whether an organization is a shipping organization,a destination organization, or both.1. From-TO organizationDetermine if the organization displayed is the To Organization, From Organization, or the From or To Organization.Item is transfered from the From organization to the To Organization.2. Transfer Type: (Intransit/Direct)For each organization relationship you create, you must indicate what type of shipment is used. If you choose to useintransit inventory, Oracle Inventory moves material to intransit inventory before it reaches the destinationorganization when you perform an inter–organization transfer. Typically, you transfer material through intransitinventory when transportation time is significant. If you do not choose intransit inventory, Oracle Inventory movesyour material directly to the destination organization when you perform an inter–organization transfer.For direct transfer type the FOB & receipt routing is disabled.3. FOB (Shipment/Receipt)Determines the ownership of the materail. If it is shipment then the owner ship goes to To(receving) organization atthe point of shipping. If it is receipt then the ownership is transfered from the From(Sending) organization to theTo(receving) organization when the materail is received at the receving organization.4.
