Transfer of material between projects where applicable unit cost is moved from the lending project to the borrowing project. The transaction is recorded, and repayment is made to the lending project when a replenishment order is received by the borrowing project. The original cost of the material is transferred to the lending project and the borrowing project absorbs the difference in cost.
A locator flexfield without project or task segment values. A common locator represents a physical location.
A project, defined in Oracle Projects, that will hold the costs for the common (non-project) items. Every common costed transaction will be processed through the cost collector and receive the “common project” destination.
A classification for the cost of an item, including material, material overhead, resource, outside processing, and overhead.
An attribute of a project which allows the system to hold item unit costs at a level below the inventory organization. Within an organization, an item may have more than one cost if it belongs to different cost groups. Item costing can be specific to a single project if each project has a distinct cost group, or specific to a group of projects if all projects in that group are assigned to the same cost group.
A subdivision of cost element. You can define unlimited cost sub–elements for each cost element.
Method to control the configuration of an assembly by assigning date ranges for the parent/component relationships. Component selection by MPS and MRP is based upon which components are valid for the date the components are required.
default material task
Task to which project material costs are allocated if no matching rules are found for material task assignment. It is a rule with no material task assignment criteria specified.
default resource task
Task to which project resource costs are allocated if no matching rules are found for resource task assignment. It is a rule with no resource task assignment criteria specified.
Effectivity is used to control the addition or removal of a component or an operation from a bill of material or an assembly process. Effectivity control may be managed by model/unit number (also known as serial number effectivity) or by date.
end item unit number
End Item Unit Number, sometimes abbreviated as Unit Number, uniquely identifies which bill of material to be used for building a specific Model/Unit Number Effectivity controlled item.
Exchange Rate Variance (ERV)
The difference between the exchange rate for a foreign-currency invoice and its matched purchase order.
For timecards and expense reports, the organization to which the incurring employee is assigned, unless overridden by organization overrides. For usage, supplier invoices, and purchasing commitments, the incurring organization entered on the expenditure.
An implementation–defined classification of cost that you assign to each expenditure item. Expenditure types are grouped into cost groups (expenditure categories) and revenue groups (revenue categories). Expenditure types include: IPV, ERV, Tax, Freight, and Miscellaneous.
Includes Invoice Price Variance (IPV), Exchange Rate Variance (ERV), Freight, Tax, and Miscellaneous Charges. In Release 11i, the invoice charges are transferred from Oracle Payables to Oracle Projects for each project using the invoice charge transfer process.
Invoice Price Variance (IPV)
Difference between the purchase price and the invoice price paid for a purchase order receipt. Upon invoice approval, Oracle Payable automatically records Invoice Price Variance to invoice price variance account.
lot type seiban
Also known as Mass production seiban. Project represents a model, task represents a lot for that model; Project+Task represent the Seiban Number; all costs for all lots are collected into a project for analysis purposes.
model/unit number effectivity
A method of controlling what components go into making an end-item based on an assigned end item model/unit number. An end item model/unit number field is an alphanumeric field that is usually concatenated with a model prefix and a sequential unit number, e.g. FAN-0001. Unique configurations are specific by defining parent-component relationships for a particular end item model/unit number. Multiple unique configurations can be established for a single end-item part by assigning different model/unit number effectivities. A Model is a control element that identifies a particular configuration of an end item and associates it with one or more contracts (e.g. Boeing 747). However, this information is embedded as a prefix in naming the unique end item model/unit number identifier, there is no link to ATO/PTO model items. A unit is a specific end item (e.g. a tail number) within the model designation. Subassemblies or components at levels beyond major assembly can be under date effectivity control if there is no need to identify its configuration by end item unit number. You need to decide how deep in your bill structure that you are planning to use Model/Unit Number Effectivity into the inventory so that you can distinguish your various configuration. Once you identify a part to be under model/unit number effectivity control, all its parent assemblies has to be under model/unit number effectivity control.Component selection by MPS and MRP is based upon which components are valid for the specific end item model/unit numbers.
A grouping mechanism that allows you to group multiple projects for planning and netting purposes. Projects within the same planning group can share supply.
A unit of work that can be broken down into one or more tasks. A project is the unit of work for which you specify revenue and billing methods, invoice formats, a managing organization and project manager, and bill rate schedules.You can charge costs to a project, and you can generate and maintain revenue, invoice, unbilled receivable, and unearned revenue information for a project.
project blanket release
An actual order of goods and services with a project and task reference against a blanket purchase agreement.
project drop shipment
A process of having the supplier provide the items directly to your customer for a project or task. The sales order is linked to a project and task. The purchase requisition is linked to the same project and task. The procurement cost is collected in Oracle Projects.
project flow schedule
Flow schedule with project and task references.
Inventory owned by a project and task. You can segregate inventory by project using project locators.
A standard or non–standard WIP discrete job with a project and task reference.
project details page
Details page to view information related to a project for manufacturing and/or project costing activities. The manufacturing information viewed could be, WIP jobs, line schedules, procurement activities, and so on. Project costing information such as expenditures, commitments can also be viewed here.
A locator with project and task segment values. A project locator is a logical partition of a physical location by project and task.
A type of manufacturing environment where production requirements are driven by large projects. You can plan, schedule, process, and cost against a specific project or a group of projects. If Oracle Project Manufacturing is installed and the Project References Enabled and Project Control Level parameters are set in the Organization Parameters window, you can assign project and, if required, task references to sales orders, planned orders, jobs, requisitions, purchase orders, and other entities within Oracle Manufacturing. If the Project Cost Collection Enabled parameter is also set, you can collect and transfer manufacturing cost to Oracle Projects.
project manufacturing costing
A series of features in Project Manufacturing designed to support manufacturing costing in a project manufacturing environment. Project Manufacturing Costing allows you to track item cost by project or a group of projects, and transfer project related manufacturing transaction costs to Oracle Projects.
project manufacturing organization
A new organization classification added in Release 11i. Allows the organization to be setup for Project manufacturing activities. Also see project manufacturing.
project move orders
Manage project material movement between subinventories by creating (manually or automatically), approving, and transacting material (project) move orders.
A series of features in Project Manufacturing designed to support manufacturing planning processes in a project manufacturing environment. Project MRP allows you to segment all sources of supply and demand by project and task. This allows the planning process to net and plan supply by project and task.
project purchase order
A purchase order with a project or project and task reference.
A requisition with a project or project and task reference.
project sales order
