This transaction may not be used to authorize labor, material, or other resources.

Application(s) accessed Oracle Supplier Scheduling, Oracle Purchasing, Oracle Planning
ASC X12 Transaction 862

Prerequisite Setup in Oracle Applications

Oracle Supplier Scheduling

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

Define bucket patterns, enable CUM Accounting to track quantity received by supplier site. Unlike a planning schedule (830 transaction), the concept of authorizations does not apply to shipping schedules.

Use Scheduler Workbench or enable AutoConfirm option in AutoSchedule to confirm your schedules. Only confirmed shipping 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.
