Final Assembly Order Completion
Oracle Work in Process lets you build final assembly orders the same way you build discrete jobs. You can automatically or manually convert reservations between the sales order and the job into reservations to inventory as you complete assemblies into inventory.
Build Final Assembly Orders
You can perform standard work in process transactions with your final assembly orders. You can issue material, return components back to inventory from the job and perform move and resource transactions by using the WIP Material Transactions, Move Transactions, and Resource Transactions windows.
Automatic Inventory Reservations
As you complete assemblies from final assembly orders, Work in Process automatically creates reservations from the job to the completion subinventory and locator and relieves the work in process reservation by the number of assemblies you complete.
For example, if you opened a discrete job to build 10 units of Laptop Computer-2001 (a configuration of Laptop Computer), you would establish a reservation between the sales order and the work in process job. If you then completed 4 units, Work in Process would automatically reserve the inventory you completed to the sales order and relieve the work in process reservation by 4.
If multiple sales orders were linked to the same work in process job and you did not manually specify which sales order you intended for a particular completion transaction, Work in Process would automatically choose the one with the earliest ship date.
Manual Inventory Reservations
You can also manually create reservations from the job to the subinventory and locator as you complete assemblies from final assembly orders. You can specify a sales order number, line and shipment to which Work in Process completes assemblies first before trying to allocate any remaining completions to other sales order number, lines, and shipments.
Complete Lot and Serial Number Controlled Assemblies
When you complete assemblies under serial number control from a final assembly order to inventory, you can choose to specify the serial number immediately or wait until you actually ship the sales order. You must specify the lot number at completion time when you complete assemblies under lot control from a final assembly order into inventory.
