Item
 Item
An item is a part or service that are purchased, sold, planned, manufactured, stocked, distributed, or prototyped .

 Item Statuses and Attributes
Status attributes are item attributes that enable key functionality for each item. An item status is defined by selecting the value check boxes for the status attributes. Both status attributes and item status can be controlled at the item level or organization levels.

 Unit of Measure
 A unit of measure (UOM) is a term used along with a numeric value, to specify the quantity of an item. For example, “each” is a unit of measure that used to specify the number of units of an item.  A unit of measure class is a group of units of measure with similar characteristics. For example, “weight” can be a unit of measure class with units of measure such as kilogram, gram, pound, and ounce.  A unit of measure conversion is a mathematical relationship between two different units of measure.

Organization Calendar
 workday calendar must be defined in Inventory if the following are to be performed : inventory forecasting ,reorder-point planning, available-topromise analysis or cycle counting.  Inventory automatically generates a workday pattern (the base calendar) that includes all days, including nonworkdays, between the start and end dates specified.  workday exceptions can be assigned to the base calendar to denote holidays, schedule maintenance, or overtime.

Inventory Transactions
Transaction  A transaction is an item movement into, within, or out of inventory. A transaction changes the quantity, location, or cost of an item. Inventory supports a number of predefined and user-defined transaction types.  Every material movement has a corresponding set of accounting transactions that Oracle Inventory automatically generates.  All transactions validate the various controls (revision, locator, lot number, and serial number) enabled for items.

Inventory Enterprise Structure
Inventory Enterprise Structure

The Oracle Applications organization models define organizations and the relationships among them in arbitrarily complex enterprises. This organization model serves as the cornerstone for all of the Oracle Applications products. It dictates how transactions flow through different organizations and how those organizations interact with each other.

Inventory Enterprise Structure
Multi-org
 Multi-Org is a key component that provides secure access to the different organizations of the enterprise supports multiple organizations of the enterprise structure in a single database.  Operating Unit is the primary organization unit through which user secures transaction data, but also creates processes and reports on financial applications data. An Operating Unit can be used to model an autonomous business unit that performs one or more business activities and creates transactions with financial impact.

Inventory Enterprise Structure

 Business Group
This is an Organization that represents the consolidated enterprise, a major division, or an operation company and has no accounting impact. The Business Group partitions Human Resources information and the Purchasing Approval Hierarchy. If you request a list of employees (in any module) you will see only those employees in the Business Group of which your Operating Unit is a part. Multiple Legal Entities can relate to a single Business Group.

Operating Unit
– An operating unit represents an organization that uses any Oracle subledger application, for example, Order Management, Payables. It may be a sales office, a division, or a department. An operating unit is associated with a legal entity. Information is secured by operating unit for these applications. Each user sees information only for their operating unit.

– An inventory organization is a facility in your enterprise where you store and transact your inventory items. The items in an inventory organization can be in the form of raw materials, semifinished goods, or finished goods for varying periods of time. – A physical entity such as a manufacturing facility, warehouse, distribution center, or a branch office. – A logical entity such as an item master organization, which you can use just to define items but no transactions. The item master organization is discussed in detail in the lesson titled “Defining and Maintaining Items Fundamentals.

C ma yC n e tia o p n o fid n l

Inventory Enterprise Structure

– Subinventory Subinventories are unique physical or logical separations of material inventory, such as raw material inventory, finished goods inventory, or defective goods inventory. In Oracle Inventory, all material within an organization is held in a subinventory. Therefore, you must define at least one subinventory. – Locator 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

Inventory Setup
Organization Setup
 Before using Oracle Inventory, one or more organizations need to be defined. Organizations represent distinct entities in a company and can include separate manufacturing facilities, warehouses, distribution centers, and branch offices.  Organizations can be classified and connected to model the overall enterprise structure. The classifications include: - Business Groups - Legal Entities (LE) / Government Reporting Entities (GRE) - Operating Units - Inventory Organizations

Using an Item Master Organization
Item Master Organization is usually the first Inventory organization that is set up. Its single purpose is for entering items. It has no subinventories and is not used for inventory transactions. Items are entered in an item master organization and then assigned to be used in child organizations. Child Organization is an inventory organization with at least one subinventory that is set up for processing inventory transactions. It is not used to enter items. It gets a list of items from the master.

Units of Measure
Units of measure (UOM) are defined for tracking/moving/storing & counting items. Each item defined in Inventory must have a primary UOM. Each transaction performed in Inventory must have a UOM associated with the transaction quantity and a conversion defined back to the primary UOM. Multiple related UOMs are grouped together in a class with a base unit of measure Inventory uses the base UOM to perform conversions between units of measure in each class and between two different unit of measure classes.

When defining an item, status must be given by using the Item Status attribute. The Item Status attribute has a user defined set of yes/no values for the status attributes. The values are applied to the status attributes when an item status code is chosen when defining an item. For example, in the beginning of a product development cycle Item Status attribute is set to Prototype with all of the status attributes defaulted to yes except for Customer Orders Enabled. When the item is ready the Item Status attribute is set to Active to allow all functions for the item.

Only the information needed to maintain the item are defined. An item cannot be defined at the Organizational level. Oracle will automatically switch to the Master Item window when defining a new item.

Creating and Maintaining Items
Master Item vs. Organizational Item
Whether an item attribute is defined/maintained at the Master level or the Organization level can be designated. Attributes at the Master level are the same across all organizations that the item is assigned to. If an attribute is maintained at the Organization level, it can have different values in each organization the item is assigned. Some attributes can be maintained at only the Master level or the Organizational Level. Unit of Measure should be maintained at the Master level. Min-Max should be maintained at the organizational level if multiple organizations are used.

Creating and Maintaining Items
Organization Assignment and Organization Item
Item can be enabled in all child organizations under master organization or child organizations where the item to be used is chosen. Inventory propagates item to all organizations in which the item is to be defined. Organizational attributes for item attributes which are enabled in that organization, can be entered or changed which are enabled in that organization. For example, go to an organization to choose reorder point planning for an item, and then go to another organization and choose Min-Max planning for the same item.

Inventory Controls
Overview
With Inventory locator, revision, lot and serial number control can be implemented Flexibility: - Inventory controls are optional for all items. - any combination of the four controls (locator, revision, lot and serial number) for each item can be implemented.

Inventory Controls

Locator setup
Locators are optional structures within subinventories. Locators are the third level in the enterprise structuring scheme of Oracle Inventory . Locators may represent rows, aisles, or bins in warehouses. Items can be received directly into and shipped items directly from locators.

Inventory Controls
Revision Control
A revision is a particular version of an item, bill of material, or routing. By using the ‘Revision control’ option while defining items item quantities can be tracked by item revision. To do so a revision is a must for each material transaction. Revision control is enabled for items for which version changes or changes that are significant enough to track but are not affecting the function and feature of the item are tracked .
 Revision

Control item attribute cannot be changed when an item has quantity on hand.

Inventory Controls
Revision Control
When defining Revision numbers letters, numbers and characters such as A, A1, 2B, etc can be used. Letters are always in upper case and numbers may include decimals. To ensure that revisions sort properly, decimals should always be followed by a number. Revisions are sorted according to ASCII rules. Each revision must be greater than the previous revision. For example, revision 10 cannot be used after revision 9 because, according to ASCII sorting, 10 precedes 9.

Inventory Controls
Lot Control
 Inventory provides complete lot number support for inventory transactions. A lot identifies a specific batch of an item that is received and stored in an organization. Lot control is a technique for enforcing the use of lot numbers during material transactions, thus enabling the tracking of batches of items throughout their movement in and out of inventory. If Lot Control is turned on for an item, the lot number must be indicated to perform a transaction.

C ma yC n e tia o p n o fid n l

Inventory Controls
Lot Control
Lot Control must be turned on at the item level. lot numbers must be assigned whenever items under lot control are received into inventory. An inventory receipt can be split in to several lots, as necessary. Quantities can be added to existing lot numbers. Inventory will generate default lot numbers by using the default lot number generation method which is configured in the Organization Parameters window during setup.

Inventory Controls
Serial Control
A serial number is an alphanumeric piece of information assigned to an individual unit of an item. A serialized unit is a combination of an item number and a serial number. Individual units of items can be tracked by using serial numbers. Serial number control is a system technique for enforcing the use of serial numbers during a material transaction. Serial numbers can be used to track items over which a very tight control is to be maintained. One serial number per unit of an item can be assigned

10 1
C ma yC n e tia o p n o fid n l

Inventory Controls
Serial Control
Generating Serial Numbers Depending on how Serial Number Control is set at the Master Item level will determine how serial numbers are generated. If No Control is specified as the serial number control type, no serial number control will be enforced. If Predefined is specified as the serial number control type, serial numbers for that item must be predefined. If control At inventory receipt or At sales order issue, optionally serial numbers for the item can be predefined.
11 1
C ma yC n e tia o p n o fid n l

Inventory Controls
Serial Control
Generating Serial Numbers Inventory uses the starting serial number prefix and the starting serial number specified in the Item screen . The process of generating serial numbers is done through a concurrent report. This does not assign numbers to units in inventory, it simply reserves serial numbers for an item, for later use.

nventory Transactions Inter Org Transfer
Direct Inter–organization Transfers  We can use a direct inter–organization transfer to move inventory directly from a shipping organization to a destination organization.  The validity of a transfer transaction depends on the controls we have defined in both the shipping and destination organizations for the items we want to transfer.

nventory Transactions Inter Org Transfer
Inter–Organization Transfers via Intransit Inventory We usually transfer material to intransit inventory when transportation time is significant. When we perform the transfer transaction, we do not need to specify the delivery location. We only need to enter the subinventory we are shipping from, a shipment number, the freight information, and, depending on the inter–organization transfer charge that applies between the organizations, a percentage of the transaction value or a discrete amount that Oracle Inventory uses to compute transfer charges.

 Cycle Counting Cycle counting is the periodic counting of individual items throughout the year. Count items of higher value more frequently than items of lower value. The differences between the system quantity and counted quantity are adjusted to correct the system quantity and inventory value in the system.  Physical inventory A physical inventory is a periodic reconciliation of system onhand balances with physical counts in inventory. It is normally done once in a year as a part of financial auditing requirement to verify inventory assets on balance sheet. Production is stopped at the time of carrying out this activity.

Min-max planning is a method of determining when and how much to order based on user-defined minimum and maximum inventory levels. In Oracle Inventory you can perform min-max planning at two levels: Organization: To perform organization-level min-max planning for an item, you must specify organization-level minimum and maximum quantities. Subinventory: To perform subinventory-level min-max planning for an item, you must specify subinventory-level minimum and maximum quantities.
