Order Management

The Oracle Order Management Suite enables you to capture orders from multiple channels, price orders, check product availability, schedule fulfillment, plan shipments, ship deliveries, and track shipments. The complete order to cash cycle can be depicted in the below figure.

If you couldn’t understand anything out of the above figure then don’t waste time and go ahead with the rest of the topic. We‘ll learn the complete order to cash cycle in 6 different chapters 1. Introduction 2. Customer 3. Order Entry 4. Order Processing 5. Advance Pricing 6. Payment

The Oracle Order Management Suite consists of: 1. Oracle Order Management 2. Oracle Shipping Execution 3. Basic Pricing Order Management implementation involves several phases, including setting up other integrated applications, which include Oracle General Ledger, Oracle Receivables, and Oracle Inventory. Some setup steps are optional, depending on whether you have the integrating applications installed and whether you use the associated feature. For example, if your business supports drop shipments, you should also set up Oracle Purchasing. If you sell models and kits, set up Oracle Bills of Material and Oracle Configurator. 1. A detailed process of order to cash cycle is shown below

2. Oracle Manufacturing and Supply Chain Applications enable customers to operate using various supplychain stocking strategies. The term stocking strategy denotes a process that identifies and maintains the optimum level of your bills of material at which you should maintain your inventory, so that your inventory investment is a minimum. For example, in the ship building industry, you would not keep any inventory, whereas you would have to keep inventory in your retail outlets if you were selling shoes. The amount of time a customer is willing to wait to buy a product (delivery lead-time) is a very important determinant of the supply-chain stocking strategy. As the delivery lead-time decreases, the finished goods inventory moves closer to the consumption point. To a certain extent, product complexity can also be an important determinant of a supply-chain stocking strategy. Below Figure shows the typical position of each of these strategies in a lead-time–product complexity graph.

• Ship from stock (MTS make to stock) : You have sufficient inventory items in stock and the order
is directly fullfilled from inventory. In an MTS environment, you produce your products and stock them in anticipation of customer orders. A good forecasting system is very important to this environment because most of the material and capacity planning is done using forecasts rather than actual demand. Examples include stereo systems and television sets.

• Make to order: After entering the sales order the schedule and planning process creates a job to
fulfill the order. Once the job is completed the on hand of that particular customer ordered item is increased in the inventory and later is shipped to the customer. Standard products are designed and published in catalogs. The actual product is built on receipt of the customer order. Customers might be able to choose certain characteristics optionally. An example of this would be machine building. Each customer order may have an associated project to manage the production and delivery schedule.

• Configure to order(ATO, PTO, CTO):
Pick-To-Order (PTO) Under this strategy, a variety of shippable components are stocked. Customers order “kits” or collections of these parts under a single item number; kits can be either predefined or configured by the customer during the order entry process. The components of the kit are picked and shipped from stock; there is no additional value added after the customer order, other than perhaps packing the components for shipment. A computer system (including the central processing unit, monitor, and printer) is an example of this. Assemble-To-Order (ATO) These are also standard products and are often configured by customers. You don’t wait until the order is received to build an ATO product. Subassemblies are manufactured prior to receiving the order and when the order is received, the subassemblies are assembled to make the finished product. Automobiles and computers are examples of this type of production.

stocking.Configure to order(CTO) It includes both the ATO and PTO. Drop shipments are done because of the following reasons Customer requires an item that is not normally stocked Customer requires a large quantity of the item which is not available with you It is more economical when the supplier ships directly to the customer . • Dropship to customer: Drop shipments is a method of fullfilling sales order by selling products without the order taker handling.Similar to the above processes but here the customer has the facility of configuring the items on the basis of its requirement. or delivering them. The seller buys a product and the supplier ships the product directly to the seller's customer.

the seller receives a sales order from the customer and sends a purchase order to the supplier. .In drop ship cycle. • Back to Back order: It involves the concept of soft-pegging. The supplier ships directly to the customer. • Internal Order: When the material required in one organization is available in another org we create an internal requisition and oracle converts that to a SO in the org where the item is available. The seller receives an invoice from the supplier and sends an invoice to the customer. The seller receives an invoice from the supplier and sends an invoice to the customer. The complete process is as shown below.

. You can use accounting rules with transactions that you import into Receivables using AutoInvoice and with invoices that you create manually in the transaction windows. If you use the Cash Basis method.Accounting rules determine the number of periods and percentage of total revenue to record in each accounting period. Notes : Invoicing and Accounting Rules are not applicable if you are using the Cash Basis method of accounting. AutoInvoice will reject any transaction lines that are associated with invoice or accounting rules. Accounting Rules Define accounting rules to create revenue recognition schedules for your invoices.

and you set the Installment Options field for this payment term to 'Allocate tax and freight'.4. Freight Items and Tax: Choose this option to calculate the discount amount based on the amount of line items. The base amount is the denominator for the ratio Receivables uses to determine the amount due for installments of invoices to which you assign this payment term. not Freight Items and Tax: Choose this option to calculate the discount amount based on the line items and their tax amounts. freight charges. In this case. the base amount and the relative amounts that you specify for this term's payment schedules only indicate how the original line amounts of the invoices to which you assign this term are distributed across different installments. • Lines. the original freight and tax amounts are included in the first installment in addition to the line amount allocated by the ratio of the base amount and the relative amount that you specify for the term's first payment schedule. The sum of the relative amounts for all of the payment schedules that you define for these payment terms must be equal to the value that you specify as a base amount. • Lines Only: Choose this option to calculate the discount amount based on only the line amounts of your invoices. The default is 100. Receivables uses the following equation to determine the original amount due for each installment of invoices to which you assign this payment term: Amount Due = Relative Amount/Base Amount * Invoice Amount If you select 'Include tax and freight in first installment' as the Installment Options field value for a payment term. Enter the Discount Basis you want Receivables to use when calculating discounts for your invoices. of your invoices. If the base amount is different from the relative amount. and line amounts of your invoices. Receivables uses the following equation to determine the original amount due for the first installment of invoices to which you assign this payment term: . but you can change it. 6. Receivables prorates the base amount across the relative amounts of this term's payment schedules based upon the ratio you define. This indicates how Receivables will allocate the freight and tax charged to transactions using this payment term. but not the freight items and their tax lines. • Lines and Tax.

Following 4 steps need to be completed to enable document sequence 1. You can define a single document sequence to assign unique consecutive numbers to all your orders and returns. an order or return is uniquely identified by its type and its number. since orders and returns of different types may share numbers. This step is required. You can define document sequences that automatically generate numbers for your orders and returns as you enter them. or you can define multiple document sequences that are assigned to different order types. Order Management uses AOL Document Sequence functionality for order numbering. Order and return numbers cannot contain alphabetic characters. In the latter case. Set the profile option Sequential Numbering to Always Used at the Order Management Application level .Step 11: Document Sequences (Order Numbering) Define Document Sequences for automatic or manual numbering of orders.

You can define the sequence to be Automatic. Automatic sequences do not guarantee contiguous numbering. ■ Automatic sequences: The system will automatically increment document numbers. Define document sequence OM: Setup -> Documents -> Define Many countries have legal and audit requirements for order numbers to be contiguous. ■ Gapless sequences: The system guarantees that the numbers returned are contiguous. You can set up a document sequences as gapless through the Define Documents Sequences window. If you are using gapless sequences. When an order number is specified for such an order. Enter a name for the document sequence. Order Management prevents deletion of orders that have been numbered using the gapless numbering sequence. Specify Oracle Order Management as the Application. The application uses locks to ensure gapless numbering. please save your changes frequently to minimize lock contention issues. Order Management validates that it is unique for a given order type. Order Management enables you to enter the order numbers for certain types of orders. Gapless or Manual.2. ■ Manual: User must specify a unique document number. . Steps for creating document sequence 1. In addition. You can define a document sequence as manual and assign it to a desired order type. 2. This order type can be used on orders that you want to manually enter order numbers. 3.

and disable the old . Assign document sequences After defining document sequences and categories. you can easily identify the carrier by looking at the bill of lading number. assign document sequences to document categories. You cannot change a document category definition. re-assign document sequences to the new category. When you use a different bill of lading sequence for each carrier. Assigning sequences is application and category specific. Define document categories You can create a document category for shipping documents such as a bill of lading (BOL) and assign it to a location or all locations. create a new category with the correct information. You must define a category for each bill of lading and packing slip you wish to create. 4.For all types of numbering. Enter a starting number 3. for example. If you find incorrect information. the Order Management system validates that the number specified by you is unique for a given order type. you can set up a unique document category to accommodate this requirement. Whenever we create a new transaction type. You can create more than one document category for a document. a new document category gets created automatically 4. if you want each carrier to have its own Bill of Lading number series. You can create a bill of lading category for each ship method/carrier or define a single bill of lading category for all.

PL/SQL Code.

An Entity in this context is a group of related attributes that roughly correspond to a table or a form in Order Management. There are entities of Order Header, Order Line, Order Price Adjustment, Line Price Adjustment, and so on. An Attribute is a field or column that belongs to that entity. Therefore, the ordered unit of measure is an attribute of the Order Line entity. When you query up the Defaulting Setup window for a particular entity, a list of all the attributes for which you can define defaulting rules display. You will not be able to define defaulting rules for descriptive flexfields, since their defaulting is controlled by AOL’s flexfield routines.

Conditions are rules set up that to control when a particular group of default sources will be looked at. Define one or more condition validation templates per entity based on common business rules to meet your business needs. Then you can use them over and over for the attributes of that entity. For example, you might set up a condition template for all return lines, or another one for all internal order lines. The ALWAYS condition is seeded for each entity. When defining a set of Conditions and using them in rules, be sure to place the ALWAYS condition last in the Precedence for Defaulting Conditions. (In condition template we define condition of the order for which we 'll define the defaulting rule. ALWAYS condtion is the default one but we can define one condtion for return, one condition for internal orders and so on. once we have defined the conditions we set the defaulting rule of each attribute for different conditions. So the defaulting value is a combination of entity, condition template & attribute) Notes: The Group Number is an arbitrary number used to control AND and OR conditions. Indicate that rules

are to be connected by an AND rule by giving them the same group number. Rules to be connected with OR should be given different group numbers

On the main Defaulting Setup screen, where all the attributes of the entity are listed, there is a column called

Defaulting Sequence. This number determines the order in which attribute defaulting takes place. When attributes have equal sequence numbers, defaulting takes place alphabetically. All the attributes are seeded with a sequence of 50. You can change these sequences, if you need defaulting to happen in some different order. For example, you might define a sourcing rule that says default attribute A on the line from attribute B on the same line. In this case, you need to insure that the Attribute B gets its value before A is defaulted, or the rule will not work as expected.

Order Import Sources
Submitted by Anonymous on Thu, 12/17/2009 - 15:24

You can define Order Import Sources from which to import order information. You can import historical orders, orders from other quote or sales systems, and changes to orders. Oracle Order Management recommends that you define a unique name for each source of order information you are importing. When you run the Order Import program, you can enter the source or sources for each execution. You can run Order Import for multiple sources at one time. Internal Sales Orders If you are importing internal sales orders from Oracle Purchasing, you need to define an Order Import source to be used when you transfer the internal requisition information from Oracle Purchasing to create an internal sales order in Order Management. You need to choose an Order Import source (Currently Internal is the only option) for internal requisitions/internal sales orders when you define purchasing options in Oracle Purchasing. You choose this same Order Import source as a parameter when you run the Order Import program in Order Management. To define an Order Import source 1. Navigate to the Order Import Sources window. 2. Enter the Order Import source name and a description. 3. Check Enabled to activate the Order Import source.

The pricing engine requires that all items, services, models, option class and options should be selected and displayed on price list. Fields such as payment terms, freight terms and freight carrier are available on the price list form. By defining the OM defaulting rules to use these fields from the price list window, you are able to default values

If you enter a negative number. After entering the currency for an order or return. Multi-Currency Conversion Lists For pricing in different currencies. you must choose a price list in the same currency. Price List Currency For international sales. However. Round To Factor You can define the number of places to the right or left of the decimal point to which the pricing engine rounds prices from price lists and modifiers from modifier lists. multi-currency conversion lists enable you to maintain a single price list for multiple currencies.directly into the SO based upon which price list has been selected for the order. this is an Oracle Advanced Pricing feature which is available only if Oracle Advanced Pricing is fully installed and multi-currency lists are enabled. you increase the number of characters to the . you can record transactions in different currencies by defining a price list for each currency.

If the item that you are ordering is not in the primary price list. enter the base list price of the item. 2. 2. Depending on the value of Product Attribute. the pricing engine uses the primary price list to price the item. If an item appears on the primary price list but is not active (the effective end date has passed). If an item appears on both the primary and a secondary price list with the same effective dates. Other applications can call an inactive price list and use relevant information. right of the decimal point. Enter the starting and ending effectivity dates of this price list line in Start Date and End Date. select an item number or an item category for the Product Value. the pricing engine uses the price on the secondary price list. rounding occurs to whole decimals. you affect more columns to the left of the decimal point. enter a percent of another item's price. Rounding factor of +2 indicates rounding to the nearest hundred. If you enter zero. 5. If Application Method is Unit Price. Line-level discounts and modifiers that apply to the primary price list do not apply to the secondary price list. 4. you must submit the concurrent program Update Formula Price’s to calculate the value. Secondary Price List The pricing engine uses secondary price lists when it cannot determine the price for an item using the price list assigned to an order. enter a value in the Value field. You can assign the same secondary price list to multiple price lists but you can not assign a secondary price list to a secondary price list. the pricing engine uses the highestprecedence secondary price list (the secondary price list with the lowest value for the precedence field). If you enter a static formula.1007 rounds to .Note: The pricing engine does select inactive price lists when doing a pricing request. Oracle Pricing uses the primary pricing unit of measure and the Oracle Inventory unit of measure conversion information to price an order whose unit of measure does not have a price list line. The result of the calculation changes the value of Value. If you enter a positive number. Enter the price list line details as given below 1. 5. for example 107 rounds to 100). 1. . Select Primary UOM if this price list line UOM is the primary pricing unit of measure for the item. If Application Method is Percent Price. Select a UOM (unit of measure). Use Unit Price for inventory items and either the Unit Price or Percent Price for service items 4.

When the pricing engine is trying to locate a price. Enter a numeric value in Precedence. For example. Save your work Copying a Price List You can quickly create a new price list by copying an existing price list. If you leave any of the fields blank. 6.The dates should be within the start and end effectivity dates of the price list. Entering -5 decreases list prices by five whole units of currency. For example. entering 10 raises list prices by 10 percent while -10 lowers list prices by 10 percent. this is the product precedence. You can define your criteria further by selecting the item status or creation date of the items to adjust. entering 5 increases list prices by five whole units of currency. Only active price list lines (those with an effective end date later than the current date) can be copied. 7. You can adjust prices for the entire price list or selected items. Adjusting a Price List Use this process to adjust the prices for a price list. when adjusting by an amount. it uses precedence to resolve conflicts when it selects more than one price list line from a price list. and item categories. . ■ Amount: Enter a value to adjust list prices by a fixed amount.

You can also associate various values like transaction phases. This allows you to have both order and return lines on the same order. A document category is a specific type of document such as a sales order or a purchase order. ■ You can create new workflow activities from custom PL/SQL code. manual or gapless) and the beginning order number. ■ You can view the status of the workflow on an order or order line in either tabular or graphical format. Transaction type is the generic term that refers to both Order Transaction Types and Line Transaction Types in Order Management. The transaction type code may have values of Order or Line and determines whether the transaction type is an order transaction type or a line transaction type. In this document order type is used synonymously with order transaction type and line type is used synonymously with line transaction type. This is not to be confused with the Receivables Transaction Type. This makes it very easy to extend OM. A document sequence is a range of numbers that can be used for an order type and is defined by a numbering method (automatic. which is a completely different object.17:43 Transaction Types are used to associate workflows for various phases of sales document (sales orders or sales agreements) processing.Transaction Types Submitted by Anonymous on Tue. ■ A workflow process can have subprocesses. In Order Management when you create an order transaction type the system automatically creates a document category with the same name. 12/30/2008 . layout templates. In graphical format you can see not only the activities that the workflow has completed but also the activities that still require completion. This is used to assign the numbering sequence to the order type. approvers to a transaction type and these will be defaulted on the sales order or sales agreement Transaction(Order/Line) Types Transaction Types provide default information on orders and establish process controls. ■ A workflow process can have an unlimited number of activities. ■ There is no limit to the number of custom workflow activities that can be defined in Order Management. These are used in many Oracle applications for key entities. Some of the features of Transaction Types/Workflow are: ■ Each line in an order has its own workflow so each line may follow a different flow. .

Line Transaction Types
The Define Transaction Types window is used to define both order and line types. Define your line types first. You should define line types for both order lines and return lines. To access the window from the order management navigation menu choose Setup -> Transaction Types -> Define. Except the operating unit and transaction type name the other mandatory fields in the header are Order category, Transaction type and effective dates. And we should also specify the sales document type(agreement type: SO/Blanket Agreement) 1. Enter a name for the line type in the Transaction Type field. Note that this name must be unique; you cannot create an order type and a line type with the same name. 2. Sales Documnet Type : Sales Order / Sales Agreement 3. Order Category : Order / Return /Mixed Enter either Order or Return for the Order Category depending on whetheryour new line type is for sales lines or return lines. For Line transaction type choose wither order/return. The value Mixed is selected for order type which can contains both sales order and return lines. 4. Transaction Type Code : Order/Line Enter LINE for the Transaction Type Code. Many of the other fields on this window as well as the assign line flows button are not applicable to line types so when you enter the transaction type code they will become inaccessible

On the Shipping tab the autoschedule flag is inaccessible because it only applies to order types. The inspection required flag determines whether inspection is required when return lines are received. There are five Scheduling level choices to control the way scheduling works at the time of order entry for lines of this type: ATP Only, Allow all scheduling actions, No reservations, Inactive Demand with Reservations and Inactive Demand without Reservations. The remainder of the fields can be used for defaulting. Two values on the Schedule Level LOV on the Shipping tab support different requirements for reservations: Inactive Demand with Reservations and Inactive Demand without Reservations. These levels can be set on the transaction types, which would mean that the line will not be scheduled and will not be seen as demand in APS. When this level is set, Schedule Ship Date entered by the user will be accepted and no scheduling is done. If scheduling is done as an action or through WF, Request Date will be copied to the Schedule Ship Date if it is already not there. Shipping Source Type: External/Internal. Its used to default the values but can be changed in sales order. The shipping source type External is used for drop ship orders. The Finance tab fields contain information which affects the interfaces with the financial applications. The Invoicing Rule and Accounting Rule fields are used as defaulting sources for the sales order, and this information on the sales order is passed to Autoinvoicing. For the fields Invoice Source, Non-Delivery Invoice Source, and Receivables Transaction Type these values are required for interfacing to Receivables but they are not on the sales order

header or line. When the invoice interface activity in the workflow is executed the system will look for a value in the following order: line transaction type, order transaction type, profile option. If no value is found the invoice interface activity will fail. The Cost of Goods Sold Account can be used by the Account Generator function of the inventory interface when a line is ship confirmed.

Order Transaction Types

Here the transaction type could would be order. If you want to use the order type as a defaulting source for Price List on the order you may enter a Price List on the Main tab. The Enforce List Price flag will determine whether a user can apply a manual discount to the order at the time of order entry. The Credit Check rules for ordering and shipping determine whether credit check will occur for this order type. If the fields are blank, no credit checking will occur for orders of this type. On the Shipping tab the autoschedule flag determines whether scheduling will try to autoschedule the lines on orders of this type. The inspection required flag is not accessible (it only applies to lines). The rest of the fields can be used for defaulting. The Finance tab fields are used for information which affects the interfaces with the financial applications. The Currency and Currency Conversion Type can be used as defaulting sources for the order header. The Invoicing Rule and Accounting Rule fields are used as defaulting sources for the sales order line, and this information on the sales order is passed to Autoinvoicing.For the fields Invoice Source, Non-Delivery Invoice Source, and Receivables Transaction Type these values are required for interfacing to Receivables but they are not on the sales order header or line. When the invoice interface activity in the workflow is executed the system will look for a value in the following order: line transaction type, order transaction type, profile option. If no value is found the invoice interface activity will fail. The Cost of Goods Sold Account is used by the inventory interface when a

Shipping Tolerances
Submitted by Anonymous on Fri, 12/18/2009 - 13:07

Oracle Order Management provides you with the ability to capture shipping tolerance levels for over and under shipments recorded during ship confirmation. The shipping tolerance feature enables you to define various shipping tolerance levels for ordered and expected return quantities. Order Management shipping tolerances are used to validate the percentage of the ordered quantity. Once shipping tolerances have been defined, Order Management then automatically fulfills order lines using the tolerances you defined. Order Management’s shipping tolerances feature captures the following: ■ Over and under shipments and returns percentages at the system, customer,site, item, site-item, and customer item levels ■ Different tolerances for ordered and returned quantities ■ Defaulted tolerances from various sources based on your defaulting rules ■ Automatic fulfillment of total shipped quantities for order lines within the under tolerance limit ■ Tolerances levels that enable you to over ship at the time of ship confirmation

Over Shipments When Oracle Shipping Execution attempts to over ship an order, Order Management processes the order based on the shipping tolerances you define. In order to perform an over shipment, Order Management: ■ Determines if the ship quantity is within the defined over shipment tolerance levels you defined by setting the OM: Overshipment Tolerance profile option or setting your shipment tolerances in Order Management. ■ Notifies the appropriate personnel when an over shipment is above the set shipping tolerance. ■ Issues the material for any unpicked or unreserved quantity. Over Shipments Report Oracle Shipping Execution provides the Over Shipments Report for displaying shipping tolerances. This report displays shipping tolerance information based on

the customer, site, item, warehouse, ship date, and order type. Under Shipments When Oracle Shipping Execution attempts to under ship an order, Order Management processes the order based on the shipping tolerances you define. In order to perform an under shipment, you must: ■ Ship confirm the quantity at the time of closing the delivery ■ Determine if the total quantity shipped is within the under shipment tolerances you defined. Any remaining shipment allocations are removed Under Shipment tolerances greater than 100% are treated as the equivalent of a 100% tolerance; to close order lines a shipment of a non-zero quantity is required, even if the under shipment tolerance is set to 100%. Defining Shipping Tolerances Defining shipping tolerances are based on your customers and items or your customer site and item tolerances. Prerequisites ■ Set up your customer and customer site tolerances in the Customer window ■ Set up your tolerances for items in the Master Items window

To define shipping tolerances for orders or returns

1. Navigate to the Setup Tolerance window. Order Management > Setup > Shipping Tolerances 2. Select the Customer name for the shipping tolerance. 3. Select the customer Address for the shipping tolerance. 4. Select the Item Number for the shipping tolerance. 5. Enter the Over Shipment Tolerance percentage. The over shipment tolerance percentage determines the amount of the shipment you can exceed at the time of ship confirmation.

6. Enter the Under Shipment Tolerance percentage. The under shipment tolerance percentage determines the minimums amount of the shipment at the time of ship confirmation. If you enter more than 100, the shipping process will use 100. 7. Enter the Over Return Tolerance percentage for return receipts. The over return tolerance percentage determines the amount of the return you can accept above. 8. Enter the Under Return Tolerance percentage for return receipts. The under return tolerance percentage determines the amount of the return you can accept below.

When a line workflow reaches the fulfillment activity. drop ship and return lines. Order Management's fulfillment functionality provides a simple way to synchronize line workflows for multiple order lines. Lines in a fulfillment set will wait until all lines in the set have been fulfilled to proceed through the gate. 03/26/2009 . This gate is known as the fulfillment activity. You may find additional uses for the fulfillment functionality in your business.16:58 The fulfillment activity acts as a synchronization point for all lines on the order that are in a fulfillment set. shipping or receiving) completed successfully. How It Works The fulfillment activity is a seeded workflow activity named FULFILL. However. Order Management provides the functionality required to recognize fulfillment of an order line. Once the Fulfillment activity completes. . The invoice will then be viewable in the Sales Order window. The lines in the fulfillment set will wait at the fulfillment activity until all the lines in the set have reached the activity. The fulfillment activity must be between the fulfillment method activity and the invoice interface activity in the respective workflows. a Background Workflow Process processes the order line(s) to the Invoice Interface activity.Fulfillment Activity Submitted by Anonymous on Thu. Overview To fulfill an order line in Oracle Order Management means to satisfy the requirements for completion. note that the invoice is not actually generated until the Autoinvoice program in Receivables has been run. and the line proceeds to the close line activity. • For a return line the fulfillment method activity is the receiving activity. This activity is the synchronization point between the lines of a fulfillment set. Lines that are not in a fulfillment set simply pass through the activity.

and the order line fulfilled Order Management Processes 5-5 flag is set to Yes. then the order line completes the Fulfillment activity and continues with the next activity within its order line workflow process. This will provide two benefits: Update the fulfilled quantity for the lines and enable you to use fulfillment sets. the order line completes the fulfillment activity for all the lines within the fulfillment set. the fulfilled quantity for the order line will be updated with the shipped or received quantity. The fulfillment process then performs a check to verify if the line is part of a fulfillment set: • If the line is not part of a fulfillment set. Setup No setup is required to use the fulfillment functionality with the seeded workflows. the fulfillment process performs an additional check to verify if remaining lines within the set have been fulfilled: If any lines within the set are not fulfilled. the order line will wait at the fulfillment activity. • If the line is part of a fulfillment set. . include the fulfillment activity before invoicing in each process.If the line completed successfully. If all lines within the set are fulfilled. If you create your own workflows.

Only changes entered after the sales order lines are booked and interfaced with Shipping Execution are validated by the change logic in Shipping Execution. Inventory and Unschedule • ■ C: Change in Schedule Date • ■ D: Change in Ship Sets or Arrival Sets • ■ E: Change in Delivery Grouping Attributes .

Prior to the Order Management Change Management design. Changes are required when customers ask to change quantity or shipping information. The change category letters correspond to Shipping Execution change logic as follows: • ■ A: Change in Quantity • ■ B: Change Organization. changes to pickable orders were allowed as long as the orders were not booked or interfaced with Oracle Shipping Execution. The OM Change Management in Shipping design improves the synchronization of delivery lines and reservations with the order lines when they are changed.Change Orders in Oracle Shipping Execution Submitted by Anonymous on Mon. However. The following table lists sales order line changes resulting from Order Management updates. The objective of the Line Change Management design is to allow most of the sales order changes up until the delivery lines are Staged or Ship Confirmed.

For sales order lines interfaced from Order Management to Shipping. in any order. all line imports and line splits must be processed. No changes are allowed for Confirmed or Shipped deliveries if the interface between Shipping and Order Management has not run to update the sales orders. Changes to sales order lines not interfaced from Order Management to Shipping are not restricted by Shipping. The WSH_INTERFACE holds. changes are allowed based on attributes updates if the deliveries are not closed. The Shipping change validation logic is initiated for interface lines where the action flag value is set to U for Update. the 3 types of entries from Order Management interface API call: ■ Requests to Import lines and create matching deliveries (I .Import) ■ Split existing delivery lines (S . the attribute change category is evaluated to determine what type of validation and action is needed to successfully update the Shipping attributes. .

Shipping processes all interface data by: ■ Importing order lines to create delivery line details for newly inserted records. and Unschedule ■ Change in Schedule Date ■ Change in Ship Sets or Arrival Sets ■ Change in Delivery Grouping Attributes Changes to other attributes are propagated if the delivery status is not Shipped or Staged/Pick Confirmed. Existing and new inventory reservations are managed by Shipping as detailed in the following section. The distinct attribute changes that need validation are classified in the following categories: ■ Change in Quantity ■ Change Organization. Shipping Attribute Change Validation Logic The change validation logic is initiated for WSH_INTERFACE.OM-WSH Interface to Import Attribute Changes Order Management initiates a change by passing updated sales order data to Shipping and setting the Interface Action flag to the Update value. (I) ■ Processing Split request for existing delivery lines. Inventory.

Inventory internal Applications Program Interfaces (APIs) are used to create. Shipping creates additional reservations so all picked inventory items can be tied to the reservation. The reservations tables are part of the Oracle Inventory product. existing Inventory reservations are managed in Shipping by calling Inventory APIs. If the system is not accurately updated in real-time. Shipping updates. As Shipping splits a delivery line. ■ Delivery lines Released to Warehouse are reset to Ready to Release and their move order lines are canceled ■ Reservations are split ■ Both proportional and non-proportional splits retain and split original serial numbers Setups There are no mandatory setups to enable the Change Management functionality. ■ Overpicked quantities do not have existing reservations when orders are interfaced. it is recommended that you implement a two-step shipping process (Confirm/Close Delivery then Ship Confirm) or to always make sure the deliveries are ship confirmed as soon they are loaded or picked up by the carrier. ■ After the order lines are interfaced in Shipping. changes may be allowed after the deliveries are far-gone. These constraints are used to prevent sales order changes after the associated delivery lines have been pick confirmed in Shipping. or cancel reservations stored in the Inventory tables. or deletes reservations for changes originated in Order Management. Delivery Line Split When an interfaced order line is split. it also synchronizes the Inventory reservation and splits and the move order line. ■ Order Management does not update reservations with changes after booking. Reservation management by Order Management and Shipping: ■ When an order is booked. creates. Order Management requests a delivery line split by setting the OMWSH interface API action flag to S for Split. Split is allowed for delivery lines not ship confirmed. Instead. These APIs are called by Order Management and Shipping code to manage reservations and reservation splitting. • OM Constraints . the Order Management code creates reservations by calling Inventory APIs.Inventory Reservations Logic The Inventory reservation logic was redesigned so shipped quantities can always be matched with existing reservations during Inventory interface after Ship-confirmation. update.

Often customers order products that you do not typically stock but that you do not manufacture either. You may want to purchase that item specifically for this order, have the supplier ship it to you, and then combine it with other items you may have purchased or stocked to create one shipment to the customer. This is a common scenario for Wholesale Distributors who use the S3, or Sell-Source-Ship business model as well as for other demand channels. We call this process back-to-back orders or procure-to-order. Supply-to-order items are either standard items or models that have the assemble-to-order item attribute turned on. It is this attribute that launches the ATO workflows that deliver this feature. PTO models by definition cannot be supply-to-order, since turning on the assemble-to-order attribute would make them an ATO model. But you can fulfill the shippable options of a PTO model with back-to-back orders by checking the assemble-to-order item attribute of those components. Setup To setup Back-to-Back Orders in Oracle Order Management: 1. Use the Inventory Master Items window to define the items that you wish to supply to order. The following item attributes must be specified:

1. Item must be marked as Customer Orderable on the Order Management tab and 2. Item must be marked as Purchasable on the Purchasing tab. 3. Item must be marked as Assemble-to-Order on the Order Management tab.
Note: The Assemble-to-Order attribute is actually called Replenish to Order in the database. The same flag also controls Procure-to-Order.

4. Item must be marked as Build in WIP on the WIP tab. 5. Item must either have the make/buy flag on the General Planning tab set to Buy, or else have a
sourcing rule saying that it is to be sourced from a vendor. 2. If you define a Sourcing Rule for your Supply-to-Order items, then the sourcing rule must be of type Buy From. Also, you may only define one single sourcing rule for your item, or this process will not work. You must add this sourcing rule to the assignment set which is specified as the MRP default assignment set in the MRP: Default Sourcing Assignment Set profile option. Note: You may not have a combination of Buy From and Make sourcing rules or more than one sourcing rule in the assignment set for the same item. If you do that, Auto Create Requisition errors out and puts details about the problem in the log file. Process flow of B2B Sales Order Process 1. Enter the item on the Sales Order line. When the line is Booked/Scheduled, the Create Supply subprocess of the workflow will put the lines through

the Buy ATO Item flow which contains the autocreate purchase requisition activity. AutoCreate Requisition can be run as a concurrent program or can be initiated for an individual order by using the Progress Order action on the sales order if it is in status Create Supply Line – Eligible. As stated above, AutoCreate Requisition takes information from the Sales Order line and loads the Requisition Import interface tables. 2. Requisition Import must be run to create the purchase requisition tied to the sales order line. This can be done by manually submitting the Requisition Import concurrent program, or you can schedule it to run automatically. Requisitions created by this process all have an interface source type of CTO so you can identify and segregate these requisitions as needed. There are also message dictionary entries for CTO Note to Receiver that can be populated with custom text. The requisition column Note to Buyer is populated by the AutoCreate Requisition process with a message Supply for sales order: <order number> that indicates the order number of the line. Add additional custom text to the note by editing the message dictionary for CTO Note to Buyer. Sales Order Line Status The following line statuses help you track where the line is in the process: PO Req Requested PO Req Created PO Created PO Received If you want to see the Requisition number or Purchase Order number created by your Sales Order line, you must go to the Reservations Details window to find that information. Purchasing Process Once the purchase requisition is created and identified as CTO, the regular purchasing process takes place: 1. A Purchase Order is created and approved and sent to the necessary supplier, or a release of a previously created Sales Agreement is used. 2. Once the PO or release is received, the items are recorded in inventory and a reservation is automatically made to the sales order line. Note: View the Note to Buyer at any point in this process to find out what sales order generated this PO or release. 3. The sales order can now be pick released, shipped and invoiced just like other stocked items. Reservations A key in making this functionality work for you is how the inventory reservation is handled. This happens automatically, and can be traced from the sales order window by using Tools->Scheduling->Reservation Details as well as by directly using When Req Import processes, the purchase requisition is reserved to the sales order line. View the Inventory Reservations window supply tab to see the reservation linked to a requisition, and the requisition number and line number. When the requisition becomes a PO or a Sales Agreement release, the reservation moves with it. The Reservations window, supply tab, then shows the reservation is linked to a

PO or a Sales Agreement, and you will see the PO number or the PO and release number, as well as the line number. When the PO is received into inventory, the reservation is automatically transferred into Inventory, and it now looks like any other reservation from a sales order to on-hand stock. Just as in the regular ATO process, if you manually reserve the sales order line to inventory the Create Supply workflow step will not do anything, and the line will progress to Awaiting Shipping without flowing through the requisition process. Changes or Cancellations What happens if you need to make changes to the sales order line that is in the back-to-back process? What if the order line is cancelled? What if you need to make changes to the PO or the requisition? If the sales order line is cancelled or the quantity is reduced, then the reservation is reduced and a notification is automatically sent to the buyer explaining that there is now a PO outstanding for a higher quantity than what is needed for the sales order. The buyer can then decide whether to cancel the PO line, or to buy the product anyway and put it into inventory. If the schedule date on the sales order line is changed, again a notification is sent to the buyer, who can then decide to either change the date on the PO or cancel it or do nothing. If the buyer decides to cancel the PO, then a new requisition will be created the next time AutoCreate Requisition is run. If the PO is cancelled or a partial quantity is cancelled, then the reservation is cancelled or reduced appropriately. The next time AutoCreate Requisition is run, it will create another requisition for the unreserved amount on the sales order.

Blanket Sales Agreements
Submitted by Anonymous on Fri, 03/27/2009 - 16:05

Blanket Sales Agreements are used when you have specific characteristics releated to a purchasing agreement between a customer and a supplier. These characteristics include the date range of the agreement, the items included, the price of the items, the quantity of each item that the parties committed to, as well as other attributes, like freight or payment terms. Once a Blanket Sales Agreement is entered for a customer, multiple releases (shipments) against the Blanket Sales Agreement are processed over a period of time within Order Management. The order is fulfilled and billed according to the terms of the Blanket Sales Agreement. Tracking information will also be accumulated for Blanket Sales Agreements, such as, Blanket Sales Agreements quantity fulfilled, and dollar value fulfilled of released lines. This information is used to view status of orders executed against a Blanket Sales Agreement.
