Material Transactions

Oracle Mobile Manufacturing enables you to perform all work in process material transactions. This includes issuing material from inventory to charge against a job, reversing component issues, and issuing components from jobs to fill negative material requirements.

Note: You can set the Allow Negative Balances Parameter in Oracle Inventory so that the inventory balances of items can be driven negative.

Lot and serial number control are maintained when issuing components. You can issue partial requirement quantities and over–issue requirements. You can issue any item even if it is not on the BOM for the job.

Over Picking

Over picking may be desirable for a number of reasons. It may improve operational efficiency to pick a whole container rather than to spend time unpacking a small residual quantity. It may be necessary to compensate for handling/shrinkage losses during shipment or in a manufacturing process. The picked item may have an intrinsic variation in quantity, and there is an agreement with the customer to accept such variations. Over picking support provides mobile pickers with the option to over pick material, with ease and flexibility, when transacting sales orders, manufacturing component move order requisitions or replenishment picks. This enables over picking of material through the mobile interfaces and helps streamline and speed up the execution of the entire material picking process.

To issue or return material for a job:

  1. Navigate to the Material Transaction window.

    Material Transactions Page

    the picture is described in the document text

  2. Select a transaction type. You can deliver parts to a job using component issue and take parts previously issued back to inventory using component return. You can also issue components to satisfy negative job requirements. When you issue negative requirement components, the components are returned from the job to inventory. You can reverse negative component issues with negative component returns. When you return components that have negative requirements, the components are issued from inventory to the job.

    Note: The prompts for all material transactions are the same. The window name distinguishes the transaction type: Issue, Return, Negative Issue, and Negative Return.

  3. In the Job field—enter, select from the list of values, or scan the discrete job.

    The Assembly number for the job you select displays in the Assembly field.

    Issue Transaction Window

    the picture is described in the document text

  4. In the Item field—enter, select, or scan the item number for the part you are issuing to the job.

  5. Enter the item revision in the Rev field if applicable.

  6. In the Op Seq field, enter or select the operation sequence where you want to issue or return the item.

  7. In the Sub field enter the subinventory from which to issue the item, or to which to return the item. Enter the locator in the loc field if applicable.

  8. In the Qty field enter the quantity of the item you are transacting.

  9. If the component is under serial or lot control, you will be prompted to enter the component backflush information

  10. If the component is lot controlled, enter the lot number in the Lot field.

  11. Enter the lot quantity in the Lot Qty field. The total lot quantity must match the required component quantity. If necessary, you can enter more than one lot.

  12. If you are issuing components to the job and if the assembly is under serial control, enter the assembly serial number in the Parent SN field to create genealogy between the component and the assembly. If you are returning components from the job to Inventory, any previously created genealogy will automatically be disabled.

  13. Enter the component serial number in the SN field. Enter the remaining components serial numbers as necessary.

    The remaining fields indicate the number of component serial numbers, or lot numbers that require additional input.

  14. Choose <Save> to save your work, choose <Quality> to record collection plan results, or choose <Cancel> to cancel the transaction.

    When you choose <Save>, a message displays confirming your transaction is saved. You can then enter another transaction or access another transaction window.

Picking for Manufacturing

Oracle Inventory creates move orders and allocations for material requirements on a job or a schedule. The component pick release process supports discrete jobs, repetitive schedules, lot-based jobs, and flow schedules.

For more information on about the component pick release process, see Oracle Inventory User's Guide.

This section covers the features of Picking for Manufacturing for Oracle Mobile Supply Chain Applications:

Picking Process

In Oracle Mobile Supply Chain Applications, the move orders can be transacted on either the desktop or on the mobile device. The mobile form allows the user to confirm the item, revision, and if applicable, lot and serial numbers of the move order. The mobile directs the operator to move the material either to the supply subinventory and locator if the supply type is operator or assembly pull, or to the job or schedule if the supply type is push.

Change Management

The change management supported for jobs and schedules is identical for Oracle Mobile Supply Chain Applications as it is for Oracle Inventory, with the exception that move orders for which the source document has been canceled will not be available for transacting on the mobile. Canceling the move order and thus relieving the allocation must be performed via the Transact Move Order form from the desktop .

Serial Assembly Transactions

You can conduct assembly transactions by individual serial numbers. You can use a serial number to find information such as Job Number, Assembly Number, and the current operation of the assembly. Before you can perform serial assembly transactions, you must complete the following prerequisites:

Serial Material Transactions

Oracle Mobile Manufacturing enables you to perform all work in process material transactions. This includes issuing material from inventory to charge against a job, reversing component issues, and issuing components from jobs to fill negative material requirements.

Note: You can set the Allow Negative Balances Parameter in Oracle Inventory so that the inventory balances of items can be driven negative.

Serial Component Issue

Only items defined on the BOM can be issued and pushed to the job. If the components are under serial control, you can not issue more components than the required quantity.

Components defined with supply type Push can be issued to a job any time after serial number association as long as the job is in status Released or Complete. You enter the parent serial number then components serial or item number, and genealogy is built based on this transaction. During serial component issue serial genealogy is created between the assembly and it's components. For non serialized items, transaction quantity defaults to the lesser of required or open quantity for the job as a whole, but you can override this default. For push issues of components that are only lot controlled, if components of more than one lot are being issued to a single assembly, you must perform one transaction for each component lot.

Serial Component Return

When you return a component to inventory, you must enter the parent serial number then the component serial or item number, and the genealogy is de-activated based on this transaction. You can only return a serial number issued to the current job. When you return the a serialized component. The serial genealogy is disabled. The return quantity of a serialized component is fixed at 1 and the return quantity of a non serialized component cannot exceed the quantity issued to the job.

To issue or return serial material for a job:

  1. Navigate to the Serial Material Transaction window.

    Material Transactions Page

    the picture is described in the document text

  2. Select a transaction type. To deliver parts to a job, choose issue. To take back parts previously issued, Choose Return.

  4. Enter, select or scan the component serial and or lot number. The item field populates automatically. If the component is not serial or lot controlled the serial and lot number fields do not display, and you enter, select, or scan the component item number.

  5. In the Op Seq field, enter or select the operation sequence where you want to issue or return the item.

  6. Choose <Save> to save your work, or choose Quality to record collection plan results.

    When you choose <Save>, a message displays confirming your transaction is saved. You can then enter another issue or return transaction or access another transaction window.

    If a mandatory quality collection plan has been set up for this assembly, you must choose <Quality> to record the results. This accesses the Quality window.
