Oracle Inventory Defining Organization

Bishnu Prasad Choudhury / / 3

Defining Inventory Organization

Navigate to the Inventory Super User responsibility.
Setup à Organizations à Organizations
Define the following organizations as per the requirement of business
·         Business Group
·         Legal entity
·         Operating Unit
·         Organization

External organizations (for example, tax offices, insurance carriers, disability organizations, benefit carriers, or recruitment agencies)
Internal organizations (for example, departments, sections or cost centers)

Select New

Creating an Organization


1.       Enter a name for your organization in the Name field. A check is performed to see if organizations with the same name already exist.
All Oracle applications you install share the information entered in the Organization window. Therefore organization names must be unique within a business group, and business group names must be unique across your applications network.
2.       Optionally, select an organization type in the Type field.
Organization types do not classify your organization; you use them for reporting purposes only. The type may identify the function an organization performs, such as Administration or Service, or the level of each organization in your enterprise, such as Division, Department or Cost Center.
3.       Enter a start date in the From field. This should be early enough to include any historical information you need to enter.
4.       Enter a location, if one exists. You can also enter an internal address to add more details such as floor or office number.
5.       Enter internal or external in the Internal or External field. You cannot assign people to an external organization.
Examples of external organizations that may require entry are disability organizations, benefits carriers, insurance carriers, organizations that employees name as beneficiaries of certain employee benefits, and organizations that are recipients of third party payments from employees' pay.
6.       Then save your work.

Organization Classification

As we are defining an Inventory Organization, we will choose the classification name as Inventory Organization.
Then mark the enabled checkbox and then save your work.  

Then go to Others

Select Accounting Information
Here, we need to attach the Ledger, Legal Entity and Operating Unit.

Enter the details and select Ok, again in next window Ok.
This will ask for a confirmation, select Yes.
Then again from the Others button, select Inventory Information.
This will pop up the Organization Parameters window.

Organization Parameters

You can define and update default inventory and costing parameters for your current organization in the following areas:
  1. Inventory Parameters
  2. Costing Information
  3. Other Account Parameters
  4. Revision, Lot, Serial, LPN Parameters
  5. ATP, Pick, Item–Sourcing Parameters
  6. Defining Inter–Organization Information
  7. Defining Warehouse Parameters

Inventory Parameters



1. Enter an organization code for which you want to set up the organization parameter.
2. Select an Item Master organization. Oracle Inventory only defines items in the Item Master organization of the organization from which you enter the Items window.
3. Select a workday calendar. This is required when Oracle Master Scheduling/MRP and Oracle Supply Chain Planning is installed.
4. Optionally, select a demand class. Demand classes segregate scheduled demand and production into groups, allowing you to track and consume those groups independently. Oracle Master Scheduling/MRP and Oracle Supply Chain Planning uses this demand class during forecast consumption, and shipment and production relief.
5. In the Move Order Timeout Period field, enter the number of days a move order requisition can wait for approval.
The workflow approval process sends a notification to the item planner when a move order requisition requires approval. After the first timeout period, if the recipient has not approved or rejected the order, a reminder notice is sent. After the second timeout period, the order is automatically approved or rejected, depending on whether you select Approve automatically or Reject automatically in the Move Order Timeout Action field. If you want to bypass the move order approval process and automatically approve move order requisitions, enter 0 days in the Move Order Timeout Period field and select Approve automatically in the Move Order Timeout Action field.
6. Select a move order timeout action
Approve automatically: After the second timeout period, move order requisitions are automatically approved. Select this option and set the Move Order Timeout Period to 0 if you want to bypass the move order approval process and automatically approve move order requisitions.
Reject automatically: After the second timeout period, move order requisitions are automatically rejected.
7. Select a locator control option:
None: Inventory transactions within this organization do not require locator information.
Prespecified only: Inventory transactions within this organization require a valid, predefined locator for each item.
Dynamic entry allowed: Inventory transactions within this organization require a locator for each item. You can choose a valid, predefined locator, or define a locator dynamically at the time of transaction.
Determined at subinventory level: Inventory transactions use locator control information that you define at the subinventory level.
  • Indicate whether to allow negative balances. Determines whether inventory transactions can drive the inventory balance of an item negative.
    Attention: If insufficient quantity on hand exists in a supply subinventory to satisfy backflush demand, Oracle Work in Process forces the supply subinventory balance negative, ignoring this option setting.
  • Auto delete allocation at Move Order cancellation
  • Indicate whether this organization is an Oracle Warehouse Management enabled organization. You can use WMS features such as LPNs, task management, warehouse execution rules and cost
    groups in this organization. Locator control must be enabled in order to enable WMS. Once this has been enabled and transactions have been entered in this organization, this box cannot be unchecked.
  • Indicate whether this organization is enabled for Quality inspection.
  • Indicate whether this organization is an Oracle Enterprise Asset Management enabled Organization.
  • Enter a total load weight and unit of measure for this organization.
  • Enter a total volume and unit of measure for this organization.  
8. Select a Default On-hand Material Status tracking option. This step is optional.
9. Indicate whether locator aliases must be unique across the organization

Costing Information


1. Costing Organization

2. Costing Method


3. Transfer to GL
Indicate whether all transactions are posted in detail to the general ledger.
Caution: Transferring detail transaction distributions to the general ledger increases general ledger posting times due to the number of records created.
4. Reverse Encumbrance Indicate whether to reverse encumbrance entry upon receipt in inventory.
You normally select this option if you use encumbrances with Oracle Purchasing.
5. Optionally, enter a Cost Cutoff Date
If you leave this field blank, all available transactions will be costed,as usual. If you enter a date, all transactions prior to this date will be costed. All transactions on or later than this date will not be costed.
For inter–organization transfers, a standard costing, receiving organization will not cost a receipt if the sending organization did not already cost the transaction.
The default time is the first instant of the date. You can optionally choose another time.
The standard cost update process can be performed on the cost cutoff date. You can restart cost processing by changing the cutoff date to blank, or a future date.

6. Default Material Sub element
For standard costing, select a material sub–element that this organization uses as a default when you define item costs. For average costing, the default material sub–element you select can be used for cost collection when Project Cost Collection Enabled is set.
7. Material Over head Sub element
Optionally, select a Default Material Overhead Sub–Element from the list of values. During the Supply Chain Rollup process, when costs are merged from another organization, markup and shipping costs will use this value.
The supply chain cost rollup will complete successfully, regardless of whether this field is populated. If the Cost Rollup identifies an organization with a default material overhead sub–element not set up, a corresponding warning message will be printed in the log file.
8. Default Cost Group
Indicate the default cost group for the organization. This will default into the Default Cost Group field for each subinventory. If the WMS cost group rules engine fails to find a cost group, this cost group will be used.
9. Valuation Accounts
You choose a default valuation account when you define organization parameters. Under standard costing, these accounts are defaulted when you define subinventories and can be overridden. Under average costing, these accounts (except for Expense) are used for subinventory transactions and cannot be updated. For a detailed discussion of cost
elements.
Material An asset account that tracks material cost. For average costing, this account holds your inventory
and intransit values. Once you perform transactions, you cannot change this account.
Material Overhead An asset account that tracks material overhead cost.
Resource An asset account that tracks resource cost.
Overhead An asset account that tracks resource and outside processing overheads.
Outside processing An asset account that tracks outside processing cost.
Expense The expense account used when tracking a non–asset item.

Other Accounts


Purchase Price Variance : The variance account used to record differences between purchase order price and standard cost. This account is not used with the average cost method.
Invoice Price Variance : The variance account used to record differences between purchase order price and invoice price. This account is used by Accounts Payable to record invoice price variance.
Inventory A/P Accrual : The liability account that represents all inventory purchase order receipts not matched in Accounts Payable, such as the uninvoiced receipts account.
Encumbrance: An expense account used to recognize the reservation of funds when a purchase order is approved.
Sales: The profit and loss (income statement) account that tracks the default revenue account.
Cost of Goods Sold: The profit and loss (income statement) account that tracks the default cost of goods sold account.
Project Clearance Account: When performing miscellaneous issues to capital projects, the project clearance account is used to post the distributions.
Deferred COGS Account: This account is used by the Sales Order Issue transaction type to deferred COGS until AR recognizes revenue.
Cost Variance Account:  Under average costing with negative quantity balances, this account represents the inventory valuation error caused by issuing your inventory before your receipts.
Landed Cost Management (LCM) variance account: This account is used by the new Landed Cost Management module.
Note: For standard costing, only the Purchase Price Variance, Inventory A/P Accrual, Invoice Price Variance, Expense, Sales and Cost of Goods Sold accounts are required. The other accounts are used as defaults to speed your set up.
Note: For average costing, only the Material, Average Cost Variance, Inventory A/P Accrual, Invoice Price Variance, Expense, Sales and Cost of Goods Sold accounts are required. The other accounts are used as defaults or are not required.
