This chapter covers the following topics:
This section contains an overview of the steps you need to complete to set up Oracle Mobile Supply Chain Applications. For instructions on how to complete each task, see the setup sections indicated in each step.
Setup involves several phases, including setting up other applications. You may not need to perform some of the steps below if you've already performed a common-application setup.
The setup steps in this chapter tell you how to implement the parts of Oracle Applications specific to Oracle Mobile Supply Chain Applications.
The Oracle Mobile Application Server enables you to perform Oracle Application transactions through the use of mobile industrial devices using the Telnet Protocol Server.

You must set up Oracle Bills of Material and Oracle Inventory to use Oracle Mobile Supply Chain Applications. Additionally, other features are available when you are using Oracle Flow Manufacturing Oracle Purchasing, Oracle Order Management, Oracle Quality, and Oracle Work in Process.
Some of the steps outlined in this flowchart and setup checklist are:
Required Step With Defaults
Required Step With Defaults refers to setup functionality that comes with pre-seeded, default values in the database; however, you should review those defaults and decide whether to change them to suit your business needs. If you need to change them, you should perform that setup step. You need to perform Optional steps only if you plan to use the related feature or complete certain business functions.
The following table lists setup steps. After you log on to Oracle Applications, complete these steps to implement Oracle Mobile Supply Chain Applications.
