Globalizations and Languages
Globalizations versus Localizations
Localizations vary by country and have design
considerations
Apply globalization patch sets early as your arrive to each
region and understand implications on production
Apply languages as required for forms, reports, segment
values, lookups, responsibilities, menus, user messages,
sub ledger fields
Understanding _TL tables and Oracle translated values
versus user translated values and system functionality
Future patches will be applied in native language and then
some will need to be translated and applied under Multiple
Language Support

Oracle Payables
This area highlight what are the legal requirements fromlocal government on payables, which
include the VAT tax for local purchase goods and material, the reporting requirement for
financial reports and Tax reports. It also use to identify the local requirement on different
payment format, like cheques, TT, and bank in slip format required fromlocal bank.
Process Nro. Requirement Solution Comments

AP Payment Handling
Process
CH-AP01 Legal requirement, for all local purchase of
goods and materials need to separate the line
of purchased item cost and the VAT% and VAT
amount on financial statement and tax reports
to local government.
Setup the VAT%in AP module and identify the
VAT%of each local vendor in supplier master.
Each time any new AP invoice created for those
VAT%pre-defined supplier, the system will
automatic calculated the VAT amount in seperate
distribution line. For those supplier without pre-
defined VAT%, user can still allowed to add the
VAT line manually by manual select the VAT%
fromthe list of value available in AP payment
invoice table.
Standard Function
Required to add the additional set up for
VAT.
AP Payment Printing
Process
CH-AP02 China required to build the interface between
Oracle AP and the cheque printing systemin
order to use AP payment invoice data to print
out cheques, transfer payment authorization
letter (TT), and bank in slip document.
Required to maintain all supplier bank information
into Oracle AP then extrat the data fromAP to
different Excel worksheet base on the table format
provided by the cheque printing system for cheque
printing, for TT payment printing, and for bank in
slip document printing.
System Interface.
Supplier Data
Maintainence Process
CH-AP03 Legal requirement all information related to
supplier needto maintain in Chinese characters,
which include the supplier name, address,
contact inforamtion, and remarks.
Required to input the supplier master information
in both Chinese and English.
Standard Function
Required to input Chinese information in
supplier master table.
AP Reporting Process CH-AP04 Legal requirement all payment transactions
need to print out in details in each day with
Chinese descriptions, debit balance, credit
balance, and total from sun-ledger as a
supporting document for the payable balance
reported on Financial statement. Besides the
local government also required to have a
voucher number print out on each daily
payment transaction report.
Design a new report attached in AP module in
order to print out the daily payment transactions.
Use DFF to store the payment voucher number
which is manual defined by user and required to
print on the payment transaction report.
Customization Report.
Other AP Data
Maintainence Process
CH-AP05 Local requirement all bank related informtaion
like cheques, TT instruction letter, and bank-in
slip documents need to print in Chinese.
Required to input the bank information in both
Chinese and English.

Planning for R12
Business Trade Offs
Phase in approach to R12 upgrade first then gradually
implement enhancements
Go live with Big Bang approach (Major Business
Transformation)
Longer timeline required
R12 has a larger footprint
need to evaluate the computer resources, server capacity
R12 upgrade vs. upgrade to 11.5.10
Leverage the benefits and new features of R12
Avoid the necessity to engage in another project down the road
IT Convergence 2010 All rights reserved.
Planning for R12
Additional Lessons Learned
Not Your Fathers 11i Apps architecture
Not a one to one relationship
Incomplete setups in 11i will cause problems
Diagnostics can be run on each application VERY HELPFUL!
AVOID DATA CORRUPTION
Complete all payments in Payables and transfer them to the General Ledger
before the migration
Do not make assumptions on R12 functionality
TEST!
Changed names of standard reports did not get upgraded
Migration issues:
Data needs to be verified and tested
Scrub!
IT Convergence 2010 All rights reserved.
Planning for R12
R12 Perspective
We strongly recommend formal R12 Training
Confirm detailed requirements and process
Start Development early
Create unit scripts and business scenarios which reflect the
requirements and are auditable
Functionality replacements
The R12 Receivables Advanced Collections replaces 11is collections
function
The R12 Payment Manager replaces the 11i payment function
Update the closing process checklist
End users need to thoroughly test and sign off prior to Go-Live
Ensure end users are trained
Engage, Engage, and Engage the business..
