Introduction
Oracle Inventory is a global repository for part number data and on hand balances. Oracle Inventory is member of the Supply Chain product family which streamlines operations within procure to pay, order to cash, logistics and reverse logistics (including returns, repairs and maintenance) processes. Oracle Inventory provides a single repository of inventory data for all business purposes including manufacturing, distribution, service, repair and spares, consigned inventory (both from suppliers and to customers), vendor managed inventory, in transit inventory and more. This eliminates the need to maintain inventory information across disparate systems. Oracle Inventory uses the receipt to issue process to manage your inventory. When inventory arrives in your warehouse you receive it. After you receive inventory, you can transfer it within your organization or to another organization. Finally, you can issue material out of Oracle Inventory. Upon completion of this module, you will be able to: Create an item. Create and assign categories. Process transactions. Reserve material. View on-hand material. Process replenishment counts. Perform kanban processes. Maintain accounting periods. Perform ABC analysis. Define and perform a cycle count. Define and perform a physical inventory.

Inventory Setup
In this lesson, you will learn how to configure parts of Oracle Inventory that you use in day-today operations. Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to: Define subinventories. Define stock locators. Define organization access. Define shortage parameters. Define interorganization shipping networks. Define shipping methods.

Defining Stock Locators


You use locators to identify physical areas where you store inventory items. Locators may represent rows, aisles, or bins in warehouses. You can track item quantities by locator and transact items into and out of locators. You can restrict the life of locators as well as define locator dimensions. There are many different types of locators. Locators are segregated by their different uses. Locators are used as packing stations, dock doors, receiving locations, storage locators, consolidation locators, staging lanes, and inspection stations. In this example, you will create a storage locator for a finished goods subinventory.

Defining Item Templates


An Item template is a defined set of attribute values. When you apply a template to an item you overlay a set of values to the item definition. You can apply the same or different templates to an item multiple times. The more recent attribute values override previous values unless the previous value is not updateable. An item template does not update the value of status attributes when the values conflict. For example, if an item is transactional and stockable, a template cannot change Transactable to Yes and leave Stockable to no. Consider this scenario: you are a product manager for an ice cream manufacturer. Your company operates in a process manufacturing environment. You need to create an item template that automatically defaults item attributes that you typically use in your process manufacturing environment.

Defining Item Transaction Defaults


You use the Item Transaction Defaults window to define a default subinventory for an item for shipping, receiving and move order transactions. Oracle Shipping Execution displays the default shipping information when you ship an item and Oracle Inventory displays the default receiving information when you receive and item. For move orders, Oracle Inventory derives the default put away locator when you transact an item into a locator-controlled subinventory if you do not specify the locator when you create the move order. Before you can define item transaction defaults you must define at least one item, one subinventory, and one locator within your organization. In this example, you will assign a default shipping subinventory for an item.

Enable revision control for items you must track versions or changes that are significant enough to track but do not affect the form, fit, or function of the item. You cannot change the revision control revision control item attribute when an item has on-hand quantity. If revision control is enabled at the master-item level, then the system checks for onhand quantity against all organizations within the master item organization. If revision control is enabled at the organization level, the system checks for on-hand quantity within the organization. In this example, you will create a revision for an item.

Lot Control
A lot can represent a quantity of an item that shares the same specifications, one or more receipts from the same vendor, or whatever you choose. You can divide each lot into child lots that can reflect whatever characteristics you choose for items within the lot. For example, you may divide a lot of items form a vendor into child lots to reflect differences in quality specifications. When you allocate stock for production, you can allocate specific lots to a production batch based on the potency, age or other item characteristics. Oracle Inventory provides complete lot number support for inventory transactions. You can enable lot control for specific items in your inventory. For items under lot control, you can assign lot numbers to each receipt, and thereafter reference the same lots each time you perform material transactions. This enables you to have tight control over lot-controlled items in your inventory. You must assign lot numbers when you receive items under lot control. You can also add quantities to existing lot numbers and split an inventory receipt into several lots. Oracle Inventory uses the default lot generation method that you entered in the Organization Parameters window to determine lot numbers. You also enter the lot prefix and starting lot number in the Item Master window when you create an item. When you issue an item under lot control from inventory, you must specify a lot number for the item. You can specify more than one lot to cover the transaction quantity. If you attempt to transact an item to or from an expired lot, a warning message appears, but the system does not prevent you from using the lot. Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to: Set up lot control. Create a new lot. Display lot information. Update lot information. Assign lot numbers within transactions. Define lot action codes. View lot genealogy.

Updating Lot Information


You can use the Item Lots page you can update the following information: Material Status- if the lot is under material status control. Grade- if the lot is under grade control. Origination date Expiration date- if the lot is under shelf life control.

Material Status Control


Material status control restricts the movement and usage of portions of on-hand inventory. Using material status control enables you to control whether you can pick or ship an internal order or sales order, or issue material for a work order. You can also specify whether material needs to be quarantined until you inspect it. In addition, you can determine whether products with a particular status can be reserved, included in available to promise calculations, or netted in production planning. You can assign material statuses at four levels: subinventory, locator, lot, and serial. You assign subinventory and locator statuses in the subinventory and locator windows. The location status applies to the material in the location and not the location itself. To assign a material status to a lot or serial, you must first enable the item attributes Lot Status Enabled, and Serial Status Enabled on the Master Item window. You can also optionally assign a default lot or serial status to an item on the Master Item window. When you received the item, the system automatically assigns the default lot or serial status to the item. The lot or serial status remains the same through all inventory transactions including organizations transfers. If necessary, you can change the material status at receipt, or use the Material Workbench or Mobile Status Update page to modify the material status. Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to setup material status control.

Setting Up Material Status Control


A material status is a combination of transactions and planning actions that you choose to disallow in a particular circumstance. In this example, you will create a material status definition for an immature item. You do not want to do not want to allow items in this status to be available to be shipped external customers. Items should however be available to internal customers and should be able to be transacted through the supply chain.

Disallowed transactions and planning actions are cumulative. When you setup transaction types, you determined whether some transactions can be restricted by material status. the transactions for which you enable status control in the Transactions Types page appear in the Material Status Definition page. If you do not enable status control for a transaction type, then the transaction type is always allowed. You can also assign the planning attributes Allow Reservations, Include in ATP and Nettable to the material statuses you create. If the system finds a status that disallows the transaction, whether at the serial, lot locator, or subinventory level, the transaction fails.

Transaction Setup
A transaction is an item movement into, within, or out of inventory. A transaction changes the quantity, location, planning responsibility, or cost of an item. Oracle Inventory supports a number of predefined and user-defined transaction types. Every material movement has a corresponding set of accounting transactions that Oracle Inventory automatically generates. All transactions validate the various controls (revision, locator, lot, dual unit of measure, and serial number) you enable for your items. You must set certain controls and options before you can perform inventory transactions. Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to: Define and update transaction types. Define transaction reasons. Define account aliases. Define consumption transaction rules.

Defining Consumption Transaction Rules


You use the Consumption Setup page to designate which transaction to use when you consuming consigned or vendor-managed inventory. You can make your rules as generic or specific as you like. In this example, you will create a consumption transaction rule based on a subinventory transfer.

Physical Inventory
A physical inventory is a periodic reconciliation of system on-hand balances with physical counts in inventory. You can perform physical inventories whenever you choose to verify the accuracy of your system on-hand quantities. You can perform a physical inventory for an entire organization or for particular subinventories within an organization. Physical inventories are usually performed once every six months or once a year depending on the organization requirements. Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to: Define a physical inventory. Take a snapshot of inventory quantities. Generate physical inventory tags. Enter and void physical inventory tags. Approve physical inventory adjustments. Process physical inventory adjustments. Purge physical inventory information.

Purging Physical Inventory Information


Use the Purge Physical page to purge a physical definition from the database. The system deletes all information associated with the physical definition. However, the purge does not affect any adjustments or adjustments transactions made using the physical definition. You can also purge only the physical inventory tags. In this example, you will purge the physical inventory tags associated with a physical inventory definition.

Processing Physical Inventory Adjustments


After you finish entering physical inventory counts and approving adjustments, you can submit the process that automatically posts the adjustments. The system automatically creates a material transaction that adjusts the item quantity and debits or credits the adjustment account you specify for you physical quantity. Once you run the adjustment program, the system does not allow you to generate new tags or make any further updates to tag counts. Due to the irreversible nature of this program, Oracle Inventory posts no physical inventory adjustments if you have any adjustments that are still pending approval. In this example, you will process physical inventory adjustments.
