Prerequisite Setup in Oracle Applications

Oracle Supplier Scheduling

Create planning schedules manually using the Scheduler's Workbench or automatically using AutoSchedule.

Define bucket patterns, enable CUM Accounting for an organization to track quantity received by supplier site, and define authorizations that grant approval to a supplier to procure components, process material, and carry finished goods.

Use the Scheduler Workbench or enable AutoConfirm option in AutoSchedule to confirm your schedules. Only confirmed planning schedules may be transmitted via EDI to your supplier(s).

Oracle Purchasing

Supplier Scheduling uses components of Oracle Purchasing to calculate and maintain schedules. Use the Approved Supplier list created in Purchasing to establish a relationship between the ship-to organization, supplier site, and item.

Information related to approved purchase requisitions, approved supply agreement releases, receipts from supplier, returns to supplier and associated adjustments are used to determine the supplier requirement.

Oracle Planning

Supplier Scheduling also uses components of Oracle Planning to calculate and maintain schedules. Use Sourcing Rules (which may be created in Purchasing, Oracle Supply Chain Planning, or Supplier Scheduling) to define how an item is replenished for a given organization. This includes the ability to identify multiple supplier sources, their percentage splits, and priority ranking.

Information related to unimplemented planned orders generated by Planning via MPS, MRP, or DRP are used to determine the supplier requirement.
