Inventory Management

Use Contingent Workers for Cycle Count and Physical Inventory

Let’s say that you're a manager of a large warehouse and you manage several regular full-time employees. During times of high-volume activity, you hire extra help or contingent workers to help with cycle count and physical inventory tasks. This feature lets you define a nonemployee as a contingent worker with system access to record count sequences, record physical inventory tags, and approve inventory adjustments. Here's how contingent workers can now use the new feature: 

  • Record Count Sequences page (Counted By field)
  • Approve Count Sequences page (Counted By and Reviewed By fields)
  • Cycle Count REST service
  • Cycle Count ADFdi
  • Record Physical Inventory Tags page (Counted By field)
  • Approve Physical Inventory Adjustments page (Counted By and Reviewed By fields) 
  • Physical Inventory REST service

This feature allows contingent workers to work seamlessly alongside regular employees in performing cycle count and physical inventory tasks. Both the employees and contingent workers are now visible in the Counted By or Reviewed By list of values on the Cycle Count and Physical Inventory pages.

NOTE: This feature was also made available in a monthly update of 19A.

Steps to Enable

Follow these implementation steps to create users that are contingent workers who can perform counting and approval tasks in the Cycle Count and Physical Inventory pages of the Inventory Management work area. These steps show you how to create a user as a contingent worker, and also how to create a custom role and associated data security policy grant to access public person data.

  1. Create user as a Contingent Worker.

In the Setup and Maintenance work area, go to the following:

  • Offering: Manufacturing and Supply Chain Materials Management
  • Functional Area: Users and Security 
  • Task: Manage Users
  • On the Create User page, define a new user with a user name of USERXXX and person type of Contingent Worker

Create Contingent Worker User

  1. Create custom job role such as: Public Person Management.

In the Security Console, go to the following:

  • Roles: Create Job Role
  • On the Create Job Role: Basic Information page, define a custom role with a role name of ROLEXXX
  • Role Code: User Defined
  • Role Category: SCM – Job Roles
  • Role Description: User Defined

Create Custom Job Role

  1. Create Data Security Policy Grant on Database Resource Public Person.

Policy Name: Enter your policy name

Start Date: Enter Start Date associated with the Policy Name

Database Resource: Public Person

Data Set: All values

Actions: Choose Public Person

Create Data Security Policy

  1. Assign the custom job role to the appropriate users. In this case, the custom role is assigned to the user representing the contingent worker.

Assign Role to User

Process complete.

Comply With India Goods And Services Tax In Supply Chain Management Transactions

The India Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a destination-based, indirect tax applied on the supply of goods and services. Taxes are levied, and must be paid, on transactions that cross tax registrations. The law requires issuance of a fiscal document, typically a tax invoice, at the point of shipment that should accompany the goods being transported. This update provides support for the India GST-specific compliance requirements across the Oracle Supply Chain Management Cloud applications. The following requirements have been addressed in applicable transaction flows within Supply Chain Management:

  • Identification of the GST registrations (GSTIN) involved (first party and third party) in the transaction. Recovery of tax is linked to GSTIN
  • Calculation of tax and timing of the calculation; tax should be calculated as of the date of receipt / deemed receipt, or as of the shipment / deemed shipment
  • Issuance of fiscal documents on shipment

To meet those requirements, you can:

  • Recalculate tax at receipt for purchasing flows
  • Calculate tax on transfer prices for intercompany transactions
  • Capture key tax attributes during receiving, including advance shipment notices received from suppliers
  • Issue fiscal document during shipment
  • Create multiple tax registrations using selling profit center business units for shared services, such as order management and receivables function

The following GST-related tax calculations are not available in this update:

  • Calculate tax and issue tax fiscal document for outside processing
  • Calculate tax for contract manufacturing
  • Calculate tax at point of consumption for consigned inventory
  • Calculate tax at receipt in the supplier-facing entity for intercompany purchase of items

Print Fiscal Document Before Shipment for Complying with India Goods and Services Tax

You can support localized business capabilities for customers operating in India for outbound transactions such as the sale of goods, internal transfers, return to suppliers, and the cross-state movement of goods from an India organization. Any movement of goods or sales occurring in India requires a fiscal document such as a tax invoice or delivery challan. The tax authorities identify the business entities registered under GST by their unique identification number known as the GST Identification Number (GSTIN). A tax invoice is a fiscal document generated for the supply of taxable goods and services between two entities with different GSTIN's. Additionally, a delivery challan is required to accompany the shipment when a tax invoice is not applicable. For example, the movement of goods between locations identified by the same GSTIN requires a delivery challan. 

Request Fiscal Document Process

This feature ensures that your shipments include the appropriate fiscal documents based on the order type and includes the e-way bill details to comply with the latest requirements. 

As a shipping agent or a warehouse manager, you can seamlessly process multiple order types for your outbound shipments in compliance with the requirements of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on the supply of goods in India. The application’s built-in logic requests the most appropriate fiscal documents for your various outbound order types, such as tax invoice or delivery challan. The application also allows you to view the tax calculations on your shipments and to apply the e-way bill with the corresponding date to your shipments.

Steps to Enable

  1. The enablement for the Print Fiscal Document Before Shipment for Complying with India Goods and Services Tax feature is achieved by performing setups within the Financials offering. The task associated with this enablement is Manage Localization System Options.
  1. The option to Enable Document Numbering is set to Yes when the country is India.

Tips And Considerations

Setup is performed within the Financials offering using the job role of Supply Chain Application Administrator.

  • Identification of the GST registrations (GSTIN) involved (first party and third party) in the transaction. Recovery of tax is linked to GSTIN
  • Calculation of tax and timing of the calculation; tax should be calculated as of the date of receipt / deemed receipt, or as of the shipment / deemed shipment
  • Issuance of fiscal documents on shipment

To meet those requirements, you can:

  • Recalculate tax at receipt for purchasing flows
  • Calculate tax on transfer prices for intercompany transactions
  • Capture key tax attributes during receiving, including advance shipment notices received from suppliers
  • Issue fiscal document during shipment
  • Create multiple tax registrations using selling profit center business units for shared services, such as order management and receivables function

The following GST-related tax calculations are not available in this update:

  • Calculate tax and issue tax fiscal document for outside processing
  • Calculate tax for contract manufacturing
  • Calculate tax at point of consumption for consigned inventory
  • Calculate tax at receipt in the supplier-facing entity for intercompany purchase of items

Capture Key Tax Attributes in Receiving Transactions for India Goods and Services Tax Compliance

You can support key business processes mandated by the India Goods and Service Tax (GST) Act with this new feature. Any movement of goods or sales occurring in India require a fiscal document such as a tax invoice or delivery challan. This feature ensures that your receipts record the new fiscal attributes for the inbound shipments from your suppliers such as the Tax Invoice Number, Tax Invoice Date, E-Way Bill, and E-Way Bill Date. This feature is also applicable to the FBDI, SOAP, and REST services, in addition to the Receive Expected Shipments page. 

You can use the newly introduced India-specific tax attributes to provide the fiscal information on your receipts. You can reduce the transaction time by using the mass update functionality to update the above attributes on your receipts.

Process Manufacturing

Process manufacturing represents a segment of manufacturers in industries, such as consumer packaged goods, in which the finished product cannot be broken down into its ingredients, and the production method requires ways to manage variability that is inherent in materials and processes. In this update, the enhanced capabilities to support batch production with multiple co-products and by-products provide the foundation for mixed-mode manufacturing in the same plant.  These capabilities can help manufacturers – who use standard recipes for producing various batch sizes and products in single or dual units of measure (UOMs) with a fixed conversion – to make the right product at the right time.

Define and Execute Batch Production for Process Manufacturing

Producing bulk, intermediate material that is packaged into finished goods typically requires a hybrid of process and discrete manufacturing capabilities. In particular, batch production moves manufacturing in batch quantities through each stage of the production process instead of moving individual discrete units.  This manufacturing difference presents the following unique requirements that extend beyond the light assembly production that is supported currently:

  • You need to define the relationship of inputs and outputs to make a batch instead of defining a hierarchical item structure.
  • You need to manage co-products, that are planned, multiple output products resulting from a process, and by-products, that are additional unplanned outputs from a process.
  • You need to define and execute recipes on the basis of batch size instead of the number of discrete items.
  • You need to define the input size of a batch process, such as packaging production, using the variable output from the previous batch process, such as bulk production, or by scaling a work order to a target batch quantity.

With this update, process manufacturing can operate in the same plant as discrete manufacturing, as determined by the work method for products being produced. This capability enables you to model, track, and cost for materials and processes using the appropriate manufacturing method for each stage of production. As with discrete manufacturing, process manufacturing supports similar capabilities for in-house manufacturing and outside processing of standard products with the option to enable electronic records and electronic signatures for critical business events. You can design your production process with work definitions, manage production with a material availability check and work order picking, execute production with quality inspection and production exceptions, and perform cost rollup and cost accounting. 

The process manufacturing capabilities in Manufacturing Cloud are described as follows:

  • Design the production process for process manufacturing
  • Manage production for process manufacturing
  • Execute production for process manufacturing

DESIGN THE PRODUCTION PROCESS FOR PROCESS MANUFACTURING

  • Define a work definition for a process with co-products and by-products. You can create a work definition as a recipe for a unique, named process in a plant in addition to a primary product through the user interface, file-based data import spreadsheets, and REST service. The process can complete multiple co-products and by-products at any in-house or supplier operation.
  • Manage work definitions and work orders in batch quantities. Define multiple work definitions in various batch sizes, where the input and output quantities in a work definition and work order are expressed in terms of a batch quantity for the purposes of batch sizing and scaling. The batch quantity moves through operations until work order completion, while process yield loss can be captured as operation scrap.

Create Process Work Definition

Edit Operation Output

MANAGE PRODUCTION FOR PROCESS MANUFACTURING

  • Create work orders based on a process or product. You can manually create standard work orders based on a specified process and batch quantity or a product and its quantity through the user interface, file-based data import spreadsheets, and REST service. The application automatically selects the work definition for the primary product with the lowest production priority, which you can override to select another work definition.
  • Scale work orders before production. Recalculate work order quantities proportionally based on a critical input, output, or batch quantity prior to work order release through the user interface. Inputs can be scaled as either fixed or variable quantities, whereas outputs can be scaled as variable quantities.
  • Analyze co-products and by-products. You can create your own metrics and analyses, such as yield and variance analysis based on the subject areas in Oracle Transactional Business Intelligence for Manufacturing Cloud, which include co-product and by-product transactions.

Create Batch Work Order Based on Process Name or Primary Output

Batch Work Order with Multiple Outputs

Batch Work Order Scaling

EXECUTE PRODUCTION FOR PROCESS MANUFACTURING

  • Report co-products and by-products for work orders. You can complete multiple co-products and by-products with lot information into an inventory or expense location through the user interface, file-based data import spreadsheets, and REST service. Product completion can be reported independent of or with operation completion. Unplanned co-products and by-products can also be added directly to a work order or while reporting an output completion transaction.
  • Inspect work order co-products and by-products. From the dispatch list, you can create an ad hoc inspection to record quality results against samples of work in process or a primary product, co-product, or by-product in the context of a work order operation through the user interface and REST services.
  • Trace end-to-end lot genealogy of co-products and by-products. Visualize and analyze the parent-child relationships between input and output items under lot control, whether generated from in-house receiving, production, and shipping transactions, or imported through a spreadsheet from a supplier.

Report Multiple Output Completion

Inspection of the Output Item

Output Item Lot Genealogy Details

With all these capabilities built in, you can run both process manufacturing and discrete manufacturing in the same plant, which is driven by the manufacturing work definitions and work orders to make products.  This flexibility allows you to determine the best manufacturing method for each stage of production, enabling a more flexible, quicker implementation of mixed-mode manufacturing with the cloud benefits of a configurable and extensible platform and automated upgrades.With all these capabilities built in, you can run both process manufacturing and discrete manufacturing in the same plant, which is driven by the manufacturing work definitions and work orders to make products.  This flexibility allows you to determine the best manufacturing method for each stage of production, enabling a more flexible, quicker implementation of mixed-mode manufacturing with the cloud benefits of a configurable and extensible platform and automated upgrades.

Tips And Considerations

  • The Default Work Method controls the default behavior of the user interface, every time the user logs in to create a work definition and work order.
    • Default Work Method is plant specific. If a plant typically runs batch production, set the Default Work Method to Process Manufacturing.

  • Use the process manufacturing work method specific File-Based Data Import (FDBI) templates for mass creation of Work Definition, Work Order, Operation Transaction and Material Transactions. For resource transactions, the FBDI template is common for Discrete and Process manufacturing work methods.

Cost Account Process Manufacturing Work Orders

You can use Cost Accounting to calculate the costs for process manufacturing work orders, and to create the accounting entries. The Review Work Order Costs page now displays the input costs of material and resource transactions for process manufacturing work orders.

The following screen capture illustrates the feature and its benefits.

Review Work Order Costs

The product costs are calculated based on the cost allocation factors defined in the work definition for Primary Product, Co-Products, and By-Products.

All product completions processed before a work order is closed use an estimated cost based on the Provisional Completion option chosen in the item cost profile. Once a work order is closed, and based on the cost allocation factors, the actual costs incurred on the work order are used to calculate the actual product costs. The formula used for products that have a percentage based cost allocation factor is as follows:

(Total costs accumulated through this operation – Scrap Reported in this operation)*Cost Allocation Factor) / Quantity Produced

If the cost allocation factor is set to Fixed, then the standard cost of the item is used to cost the provisional completions. You must create a standard cost for the output item when you set the cost allocation factor to Fixed.

The costs accumulated through the operation where the scrap is reported are used to value the scrap, based on the following formula:

Scrap costs = (Total costs accumulated through this operation)*(Scrap Quantity/Batch Quantity)

The following screen capture illustrates the feature and its benefits.

Product Costs and Cost Allocation Factors

A new variance type called Yield Variance has been introduced to support process manufacturing work orders. Yield variance is calculated as the output correlated to the batch quantity instead of the quantities of inputs directly. The formula for calculating the yield variance is as follows:

Yield Variance = (Actual reported quantity - Planned scaled quantity) * Standard cost of product

Perform Cost Rollup for Process Manufacturing Work Definitions

You can now use standard cost rollup for process manufacturing work definitions with multiple outputs. This is also useful if you require a hybrid of discrete and process manufacturing capabilities within the same inventory organization.

When setting up work definitions, you can specify the output item yielded from different operations, and the percentage of costs to be allocated towards those output items. You can also enter the standard cost of an output item as a fixed cost for specific business requirements. The Costing Batch Output Size parameter allows you to plan your costs accurately by reflecting your typical production batch size.

The Rollup Costs process will calculate the cost of output items with active work definitions, based on the cost allocation defined in the work definition operations.

You can use the View Rolled-up Costs page to understand the cost calculations for each output item.

Manage Period End Accrual Process with a User-Defined Date Parameter

You can now specify a user-defined date as the cutoff and accounting date for creating period end accrual for uninvoiced receipts. Additionally, this ensures the period end accrual is booked in the same period when you have multiple ledgers with different calendar period end dates.

With this update, you can do the following:

  1. Select the Bill to Business Unit and then the Accounting Period on the Create Uninvoiced Receipt Accruals page.
  1. When you enter the Accounting Period, the cutoff date selected should be a date within that period as this date is also used as the accounting date for the accrual journal entry. If left blank, the last date of the accounting period is used as the accrual cutoff and accounting date.
  1. The period end accrual process accrues uninvoiced receipts where the receipt date is on or before the cutoff date.
  1. When you re-run the period end accrual process, the application accrues any additional uninvoiced receipts that have arisen since the process was last run, and automatically adjusts the accrual value. Consider the following example –

The following are the receipt transactions recorded in the application:

Receipts

Transaction Date

Invoiced Date

Amount

Receipt 1

24th

27th

$1000.00

Receipt 2

28th

29th

$1250.00

  1. You run the period end accrual process on the 25th day of a period with a cutoff as the 25th. The application records the uninvoiced accrual as $1000.00 as the receipt on 24th was uninvoiced as of 25th.
  1. When you run the period end accrual process again with the cutoff date parameter as the 28th of the period, the receipt that was uninvoiced as of the 25th is invoiced now, and therefore the accrual for this receipt is undone. However, a new receipt on the 28th of the period would be considered for accrual as it remains uninvoiced as of the cutoff date. Hence, the uninvoiced accrual for the period would now be $1250.00.
  1. If you run the period end accrual process without specifying a cutoff date, the application uses the last date of the accounting period as cutoff date. Using the example above, if the cutoff date parameter is left blank, as an invoice is recorded on the 29th of the period for receipt 2, accrual for this receipt will be undone.

Comply With India Goods And Services Tax In Supply Chain Management Transactions

The India Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a destination-based, indirect tax applied on the supply of goods and services. Taxes are levied, and must be paid, on transactions that cross tax registrations. The law requires issuance of a fiscal document, typically a tax invoice, at the point of shipment that should accompany the goods being transported. This update provides support for the India GST-specific compliance requirements across the Oracle Supply Chain Management Cloud applications. The following requirements have been addressed in applicable transaction flows within Supply Chain Management:

  • Identification of the GST registrations (GSTIN) involved (first party and third party) in the transaction. Recovery of tax is linked to GSTIN
  • Calculation of tax and timing of the calculation; tax should be calculated as of the date of receipt / deemed receipt, or as of the shipment / deemed shipment
  • Issuance of fiscal documents on shipment

To meet those requirements, you can:

  • Recalculate tax at receipt for purchasing flows
  • Calculate tax on transfer prices for intercompany transactions
  • Capture key tax attributes during receiving, including advance shipment notices received from suppliers
  • Issue fiscal document during shipment
  • Create multiple tax registrations using selling profit center business units for shared services, such as order management and receivables function

Landed Cost Management

Associate Payables Invoice Lines to Landed Cost Charges Using a REST Service

Use the Invoices for Landed Cost Charges REST web service to automate charge association of payables invoice lines with landed cost charges. This is particularly useful when there is a high volume of transactions or when integrating the charge association with an external application.

Use the Invoices for Landed Cost Charges REST web service to:

  • Retrieve Invoices enabled for landed costs that exist in the system
  • Associate or update landed cost charge and charge references on the invoice lines
  • Delete the charge references for the landed cost invoice line

Steps to Enable

Review the REST service definition in the REST API guides, available from the Oracle Help Center > your apps service area of interest > REST API. If you're new to Oracle's REST services you may want to begin with the Quick Start section.

Supply Chain Financial Orchestration

Comply With India Goods And Services Tax In Supply Chain Management Transactions

The India Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a destination-based, indirect tax applied on the supply of goods and services. Taxes are levied, and must be paid, on transactions that cross tax registrations. The law requires issuance of a fiscal document, typically a tax invoice, at the point of shipment that should accompany the goods being transported. This update provides support for the India GST-specific compliance requirements across the Oracle Supply Chain Management Cloud applications. The following requirements have been addressed in applicable transaction flows within Supply Chain Management:

  • Identification of the GST registrations (GSTIN) involved (first party and third party) in the transaction. Recovery of tax is linked to GSTIN
  • Calculation of tax and timing of the calculation; tax should be calculated as of the date of receipt / deemed receipt, or as of the shipment / deemed shipment
  • Issuance of fiscal documents on shipment

To meet those requirements, you can:

  • Recalculate tax at receipt for purchasing flows
  • Calculate tax on transfer prices for intercompany transactions
  • Capture key tax attributes during receiving, including advance shipment notices received from suppliers
  • Issue fiscal document during shipment
  • Create multiple tax registrations using selling profit center business units for shared services, such as order management and receivables function

The following GST-related tax calculations are not available in this update:

  • Calculate tax and issue tax fiscal document for outside processing
  • Calculate tax for contract manufacturing
  • Calculate tax at point of consumption for consigned inventory
  • Calculate tax at receipt in the supplier-facing entity for intercompany purchase of items

Enable Multiple Tax Registrations Using a Shared Service Order Management Business Unit

With this update, Oracle Supply Chain Order Management Cloud allows you to have a selling profit center on the sales order line that is different from the Order Management business unit. This enables your organization to sell products from different profit centers using a single sales order, thereby enabling your order management business unit to be used as a shared service. If the enterprise has multiple tax registrations across different states, you can define those tax registrations as profit center business units, while continuing to use a single shared order management business unit.

The following screen capture illustrates the feature and its benefits.

Create Order Page with Different Business Units in the Order Header and Order Line

In Order Management, on the Manage Order Management Parameters page, if you have selected the Business Unit for Selling Profit Center drop-down list value as Shipping Organization, the selling profit center in the Create Order page automatically picks the corresponding profit center defined in the organization parameters of the shipping warehouse.

The following screen capture illustrates the feature and its benefits.

Manage Order Management Parameters Page to Select the Basis for Selling Profit Center Business Unit

Whenever you update the warehouse in an order, the selling profit center automatically picks the corresponding profit center of the warehouse. But if you manually enter the selling profit center in an order, the application retains it irrespective of the warehouse selected in the order.

Also, as tax determinants are dependent on the selling profit center, they are automatically updated when the selling profit center is updated.

Oracle Supply Chain Financial Orchestration Cloud identifies the financial orchestration flow for an internal drop shipment based on the selling profit center business unit (instead of the order management business unit) and the profit center of the warehouse entered in the sales order.

You can set up a shared service business unit for receivables and payables that supports transactions across different profit centers. 

Customers can continue to leverage the shared profit center business unit. This allows centralized processing of intercompany receivable and payable invoices.

The following screen capture illustrates the feature and its benefits.

Financial Orchestration Flow That Depicts the Relationship for a Selling Profit Center Business Unit

Order Management sends the selling profit center value to the Accounts Receivable invoice lines as a line transaction flexfield attribute. COGS recognition happens based on the selling profit center in the sales order line.

Use Tax Attributes in Supply Chain Financial Orchestration Flow Setup for India Goods and Services Tax Compliance

Configure and use tax attributes such as first and third party tax registration numbers in Oracle Supply Chain Financial Orchestration Cloud to manage trade transactions between related entities operating under the India Goods and Services Tax regime. This feature includes the following enhancements that are further described below:

  • Intercompany receivable and payable invoices inherit the sell and buy side tax determinants of the financial trade route
  • Intercompany receivable and payable invoices inherit the tax invoice number and tax invoice date from the fiscal document
  • Automatically apply credit memos to original transaction

INHERIT THE SELL AND BUY SIDE TAX DETERMINANTS ON INTERCOMPANY INVOICES

For tax calculation, Oracle Supply Chain Financial Orchestration Cloud uses the first party registration number, third party registration number, and taxation country values from the sell and buy side tax determinants of the applicable financial trade route. It then passes those values to intercompany receivables and payables invoice, respectively.

  • Tax determinants for a transfer order: For a transfer order business flow, the tax determinants from the shipment transaction are passed to the intercompany receivables invoice.

If the ownership change event is receipt, then tax determinants for the payables invoice uses the attributes from the receipt transaction, if available. If the value is not available on the receipt or when the ownership change event is shipment, the values from the buy side tax determinants of the financial trade route are used for tax calculation.

  • Tax determinants for an internal drop shipment: For an internal drop shipment flow, the tax determinants from sell side tax determinants of the financial trade route are used for the intercompany receivables invoice, and from buy side tax determinants of the financial trade route for the intercompany payables invoice.

The following screen capture illustrates the feature and its benefits.

INHERIT TAX INVOICE NUMBER AND TAX INVOICE DATE FROM THE TAX FISCAL DOCUMENT ON INTERCOMPANY INVOICES

For India Goods and Services Tax (India GST) compliance, a tax fiscal document should be generated prior to ship confirmation. Supply Chain Financial Orchestration uses the tax invoice number and tax invoice date values from the fiscal document and stamps them in the intercompany receivables and payables invoice created for the shipment. Further, taxes calculated on the fiscal document are copied to the receivables invoice.

The following screen capture illustrates the feature and its benefits.

AUTOMATICALLY APPLY CREDIT MEMOS TO ORIGINAL INTERCOMPANY TRANSACTION

Prior to this update, when credit memos were created for return flows, they were created as on-account credit memos. With this update, the application automatically applies the credit memo to the original transaction when interfacing the transaction to Accounts Receivable.Tax calculated on the receivables invoice is proportionally reversed based on the quantity in the credit memo.
