Therefore, setup in Oracle Process Manufacturing Process Execution is limited to modifications that are associated to recipes and validity rules in order to produce the production batch. This topic provides the setup requirements.

This chapter covers the following topics:

Setting Up in Other Applications

Following find the setup that is required in other applications. Set up these prerequisites prior to running the Oracle Process Manufacturing (OPM) Process Execution application. Refer to the details for setting up these requirements provided in the application user's guides indicated. Depending on your individual requirements, there may be OPM related or additional setup required. If this is the case, then the details are provided below.

  3. Select Default Actual Resource Usage to copy the planned resource usage to the actual resource usage upon step completion when the actual resource usage has not been entered.

  4. Select Calculate Interim Resource Usage to calculate the actual step quantity and resource usages when a step is in WIP status. This only applies when using Automatic Step Quantity Calculation.

  5. Select Allow Qty Below Min Capacity to allow a resource process quantity to be less than the resource capacity.

  6. Select Display Non Working Days to display the nonworking days in the Production Scheduler.

Document Numbering

  1. Set Batch Numbering as:

  2. Enter the last batch number assigned in Batch Last Assigned, if using Automatic numbering for batches. The automatic batch numbering starts by adding one to this number. Required.
