The Lot Genealogy window shows how a WIP lot becomes an Inventory lot and vice versa. Lot Genealogy provides you with the ability to do the following:

    The Genealogy window displays. The left pane is in a Navigator hierarchy format containing two tabs for different views. The right pane displays job detail and transaction information.

  6. Select the Source or Where Used tab in the left pane to view genealogy information.

    Source displays the source of the record you are viewing. It is designated by assembly name, appended by the job name at the top node of the navigator. For example, you may be producing a specific job from components of a particular lot. Material used in this assembly and job combination is expanded under the top node.

    Where Used displays the assembly using this material and the Lot and Serial components issued to the resulting lot. It is designated by assembly name, appended by the job name at the top node of the tree. The assembly and job combinations using this top record expand below it.

    When you select the Where Used view, information is listed in order of oldest to current, from top to bottom of the navigator. The first record of the query is the parent lot, and the records following are the children and grandchildren of this lot.

    The Serial Details tab displays Inventory Serial Attributes and Warehouse Management System Serial Attributes like Tested By, Context Value, Color and Thickness in the Attributes field. In the left pane, serial details for the component of the Starting Lot displays if you select Where Used tab.

    The Lot Attributes tab displays WMS lot attributes and Inventory lot attributes.

    The Material Transactions tab displays historical transaction information for the record selected on the hierarchical tree. This pane displays the transaction date, transaction type such as component issues or assembly completions, quantity, and item number.

    The Pending Txns and Allocations tab displays transaction date, transaction type, transaction quantity and transaction details.

    Quality Collections tab displays item details and Collection Plan, Plan type and Description.

    The Lot Based Job Transactions tab displays the Oracle Shop Floor Management transactions such as splitting, merging, bonus lots, and updating assemblies. It displays the previous values for WIP Lot Name, Start Quantity, and Assembly number—and the resulting values after the transaction.

    If a job contains no move transactions, then a message appears stating that this job has no move transactions, or the transactions for this job have been purged.
