Oracle Order Management Setup steps and faq




Step 1: Define Flexfields
Define key and descriptive flexfields to capture additional information about orders and transactions.
This step is required for Key Flexfields, and optional if you plan on using the functionality surrounding Descriptive Flexfields. Several defaulting values are provided.

Step 2: Multiple Organizations
Define multiple organizations in Oracle Inventory. This step is optional.

Step 3: Inventory Organizations
Define inventory organizations (warehouses), parameters, subinventories, and picking rules in Oracle Inventory. You must define at least one item validation organization and at least one organization that acts as an inventory source for orders fulfilled internally.

If you plan to drop ship some orders, you must also define at least one logical organization for receiving purposes. Your item validation organization can be the same as your inventory source or your logical receiving organization, but you cannot use one organization for all three purposes.

This step is required.

Step 4: Profile Options
Define profile options to specify certain implementation parameters, processing options, and system options. This step is required.

Step 5: Parameters
Set your Order Management Parameters to validate items, enable customer relationships, and operating unit defaults. This step is required.

Step 6: Invoicing
Define invoicing information, including payment terms, invoicing and accounting rules, Autoaccounting parameters, territories, and invoice sources.
This step is required if you plan on transferring invoicing information to Oracle Receivables. Several defaulting values are provided.

Step 7: Salespersons
Define information on your sales representatives. This step is optional.

Step 8: Tax
Define tax features, such as codes, rates, exceptions, and exemptions.
This step is required.

Step 9: QuickCodes
Define QuickCodes that provide custom values for many lists of values throughout Order Management. This step is required if you plan on creating user defined Quickcodes for utilization within Order Management. Defaulting values are provided.

Step 10: Workflow
Define order and line processing flows to meet different order and line type requirements. This step is required.

Step 11: Document Sequences (Order Numbering)
Define Document Sequences for automatic or manual numbering of orders. This step is required.

Step 12: Order Import Sources
Define sources for importing orders into Order Management. This step is required if you plan on importing orders or returns into Order Management.

Step 13: Units of Measure
Define the units of measure in which you supply items. This step is required.

Step 14: Item Information
Define item information, including item attribute controls, categories, and statuses. This step is required.

Step 15: Items
Define the items that you sell, as well as container items. This step is required.

Step 16: Configurations
Define the configurations that you sell. This step is required if you plan on generating orders or returns for configured items. Several defaulting values are provided.

Step 17: Pricing
Define price lists for each combination of item and unit of measure that you sell. Optionally, you can define pricing rules and parameters to add flexibility. This step is required.

Step 18: Customer Classes
Define customer profile classes. This step is required if you plan on using the functionality surrounding Customer Profiles. Several defaulting values are provided.

Step 19: Customers
Define information on your customers. This step is required.

Step 20: Item Cross References
Define item cross references for ordering by customer part number, UPC, or any generic item number. This step is required if you plan on using the functionality surrounding item cross referencing. Several defaulting values have been provided.

Step 21: Sourcing
Define your sourcing rules for scheduling supply chain ATP functions. This step is optional.

Step 22: Order Management Transaction Types (Order and Line Types)
Define Order Management transaction types to classify orders and returns. For each order type, you can assign a default price list, defaulting rules, order lines, return lines, line types, workflow assignments, payment terms, and freight terms. This step is required.

Note: Order Management provides NO seeded OM transaction types. For existing Oracle Order Entry customers, Order Management will update existing Order Types to OM transaction type during the upgrade process.

Step 23: Cost of Goods Sold (COGS)
Set up your Cost of Goods Sold Accounting Flexfield combination (COGS Account) in Oracle Inventory. This step is required if you plan on utilizing the functionality surrounding COGS.

Step 24: Processing Constraints
Define processing constraints to prevent users from adding updating, deleting,
splitting lines, and cancelling order or return information beyond certain points in your order cycles. Use the constraints Order Management provides, which prevent data integrity violations, or create your own. This step is optional. Several default values for processing constraints have been defined.

Step 25: Defaulting Rules
Define defaulting rules to determine the source and prioritization for defaulting
order information to reduce the amount of information you must enter manually in the Sales Orders window. This step is optional. Several Defaulting rules and corresponding values for have been defined.

Step 26: Credit Checking
Define your credit checking rules. This step is required if you plan on performing any type of order credit checking.

Define freight charges and freight carriers to specify on orders. This step is required if you plan on charging customers for freight or additional order charges.

Step 30: Shipping
Define shipping parameters in Oracle Shipping Execution. This step is required.

HRMS (Human Resources useful information)

 
 Purchasing

 If HR is not completely installed. We can define the employees and positions in Oracle purchasing,
However if HR is installed then the apps will force you to define the employees ,supervisors and positions in the HR  module.

In Oracle HR,People are different from the employees. Not all the people defined are employees. Employee information goes into the table "hr_employees" and the people information goes into the "per_all_people_f"  table,but an employee will be in both the hr_employees and per_all_people_f tables. Typically if there are any contacts for an employee ,then they will be entered as the people.

-- The below query can be tried to see if the HR product is installed or not. Interesting all the HR related code is present in the applicaction user PER and not HR
select INIT_FUNCTION_NAME from FND_PRODUCT_INITIALIZATION
where APPLICATION_SHORT_NAME = 'PER'
and exists (select 1 from FND_PRODUCT_INIT_CONDITION C
          where C.APPLICATION_SHORT_NAME = 'PER'
     and C.RE_INIT_CONDITION in ('USER','RESP','APPL','NLS'))

Normally, whenever a purchase order is raised ,say,by an employee. then it will be routed thru the next in the hierarchy.
And there are two types of hierarchies in the Oracle purchasing module. One is position approval hierarchy and another
employee/supervisor hierarchy. This setting can be defined using the path
     setup => Organization => Financials Options screen. => Human Resources tab.
    
If the "Use Approval Hierarchies" check box is checked, then it means that the   position approval hierarchy is used.
If the "Use Approval Hierarchies" check box is unchecked, then it means that the employee/supervisor hierarchy is used.

Let  us briefly dwell on what is the difference between these two hierarchies. In the case of position approval hierarchy, firstly a hierarchy of all the positions in the company are defined. for ex, Manager, Senior Manager, Executive director ,Vice President,etc; all these positions are first defined. So if a manager raises a PO, then that document is routed up the hierarchy i.e it is routed to the senior manager.

In the case of employee/supervisor hierarchy, while we are defining an employee ,say ,Smith, then his manager ,say, David, is also specified. And a document is routed to that manager David.

INcidentally in Oracle purchasing, there are lot of document types defined. That is ,a requisition(Internal or Purchase), planned purchase order, standard purchase order.etc We can see these  types from the path   setup => Purchasing => Document Types.

what are the products that we would be supporting in this suite. outerjoin when the where conditions purchase order total price.


 HR Stuff.
   The profile option MO: Operating Unit will always the store the operating unit id and not the inventory_org id
   The Profile option MO:Top Operating Level stores the values of set of books, legal entity or operating unit.
   If it is SOB, user can run the report with any LE underneath that sob
   if it is LE,  user can run the report with any OU  underneath that LE
   if it is OU,  user can run the report with any OU mentioned in the MO: Operating Unit profile option.
       There are certain predefined oracle app reports which we can run with above mentioned reporting levels.
     Ex : Aging 4 Buckets report.*/

/* Hr_organization_information table stores two classes of information
  If org_information_context = 'CLASS', then it gives information about the org itself.
     i.e  whether it is a Legal Entity,Operating Unit, Inventory Organization.
  Interestingly ,the below query will give you info about everything other than set of books id,which makes sense as sob is accounting stuff.

   If the org_information_context is Accounting Information, the org_information1 will store the set of books id
   and org_information3 will give the inventory org id. Hence given the set of books id we can get all the
   heirarchy in one particular record as below.
