Migration Business Needs

The primary focus of the migration from Release 11.5.10 to Release 12.1 is to minimize system downtime,
while streamlining the implementation of Oracle Inventory for process manufacturers. To this extent, the
• Enables you retain or change your organization structure. Inventory convergence enables you fully

embrace the Oracle Inventory organization structure. Prior to Release 12.1, Process Manufacturing did
not support the concept of subinventories. Although a subinventory is created as part of Oracle
Warehouse setup, inventory transactions are recorded at the warehouse level only. Subinventories are
integral to the Oracle Inventory organization structure. All transactions are performed at this level. The
migration process allows you to optionally map your warehouses as subinventories. You can keep the
original warehouse as an active inventory organization, or make it inactive. Alternatively you can keep
warehouses as inventory organizations and define new subinventories associated with them.
• Updates references to the new item master and organization master. In Release 12.1, items exist

within the context of an organization. Internal IDs are used to reference the item number and inventory
organization for a record. These new IDs are added to existing objects (formulas, batches, quality
samples, etc.) to allow the user to continue to query and update existing data.
• Transfers inventory balances. All onhand inventory balances are transferred to existing or new

Inventory organizations, based upon the pre-migration setup. Users can review the balances in Oracle
Inventory and review historical transactional data in OPM Inventory. Period end balances for the most
recent inventory period are also migrated.
• Transfers lot and sublot information. Lot and sublot information is transferred from Process

Manufacturing to Oracle Inventory lot tables.
• Transfers other master data for lot status, quality grades, costing and Oracle Regulatory. Key

process manufacturing attributes have been added to Oracle Inventory. The supporting data required
to make use of the functionality is transferred to the converged Inventory model.
• Transfers open production batches. Batches that were open in 11.5.10 are re-created in Release 12.1.

Detail level reservations are automatically created against the material that was allocated to the open
batches in Process Manufacturing in 11.5.10. High level reservations are created for the unallocated

Migration Process Overview
The migration of data from Release 11.5.10 to Release 12.1 occurs in three phases – pre-migration, inline
migration (during the Release 12.1 installation), and post-migration. The pre-migration activities involve the
use of a Convergence Migration Setup form to prepare the data for the actual migration, the running of
validation scripts, and the correction of any erroneous or missing data. The inline migration is run
automatically when Release installed. During this period, transactions in 11.5.10 are halted and the
actual migration of the data is completed. The post-migration phase is where the data is transformed into the
new data model, and final scripts are run to complete the movement of all data. Migration messages are logged
during each phase and must be reviewed in the log viewer, and where required, acted upon before progressing
to the next phase of the migration. The migrations scripts are designed to be re-runnable, migrating only the
data which was not previously migrated.
