This chapter covers the following topics:

Inventory Management Command Center

Inventory Management Command Center Overview

Use the Inventory Management Command Center to simplify and expedite fulfillment planning and execution. The command center provides warehouse managers, outbound supervisors, inventory managers, inventory control supervisors, and product managers with the ability to streamline inventory activities and to quickly act on exceptions.

Use the command center to:

The Inventory Management Command Center includes role-based dashboards with metrics and charts that highlight critical information around the day-to-day activities of warehouse managers, outbound supervisors, inventory managers, inventory control supervisors, and product managers . The command center provides in-depth, multidimensional analysis using transactional data so that you can take corrective actions to resolve issues proactively.

These dashboards are organized by role under the following responsibilities and menus:

Dashboard Role Responsibility and Menu
Receiving Dashboard Warehouse Managers, Inventory Managers, and Inventory Control Supervisors Logistics Manager > Command Center
Aging Inventory Dashboard Warehouse Managers, Inventory Managers, and Inventory Control Supervisors Logistics Manager > Command Center
Cycle Counting Dashboard Warehouse Managers, Inventory Managers, and Inventory Control Supervisors Logistics Manager > Command Center
Reservations Dashboard Warehouse Managers Inventory Managers, and Inventory Control Supervisors Logistics Manager > Command Center
Shipping Dashboard Outbound Fulfillment Managers and Supervisors Logistics Manager > Command Center
Space Utilization Dashboard Warehouse Managers, Inventory Managers, and Inventory Control Supervisors Logistics Manager > Command Center
Activity Dashboard Warehouse Managers, Inventory Managers, and Inventory Control Supervisors Logistics Manager > Command Center
Items Dashboard Product Managers Manufacturing and Distribution Manager > Inventory > Items

Note: You must complete the Inventory Management Command Center configuration and setup after the installation and common configurations are completed as described in My Oracle Support Knowledge Document 2495053.1, Installing Oracle Enterprise Command Center Framework, Release 12.2. For additional ECC overview information, see Overview of Oracle Enterprise Command Centers, Oracle E-Business Suite User's Guide

Searching in and Refining Enterprise Command Center Dashboards

Use the sidebar to search for and refine (filter) the data on a dashboard. You can select a value or record from the Available Refinements component, or you can use the Search field to find a keyword, a value, or a specific record. When you submit a search, or select an available refinement, the search term or refinement is added to the Selected Refinements list, and all of the dashboard data is refined. You can add multiple refinements and remove any of them at any time. Use Saved Search to create and save your search. You can edit, delete, or refer to this saved search. You can also use data sets to further refine your search.

Use an asterisk (*) or a percent sign (%) to perform a partial keyword or record search that matches any string of zero or more characters. You can also use a question mark (?) to perform a partial search that matches any single character.

For more information about searching for and refining data in enterprise command centers, see: Overview of Enterprise Command Centers, Oracle E-Business Suite User's Guide.

Additional Information: For more information about searching for and refining data in Oracle Enterprise Command Centers, see "Search" under Highlights of an Enterprise Command Center, Oracle E-Business Suite User's Guide.

Available Counts (tab) This tab contains graphs and a results table focused on counts with a status of Uncounted or Recount. You can look at the Available Counts tab as a work queue. The graphs and table in this tab expose count attributes that help prioritize and better manage the work load:
  • By Organization - This graph sorts counts by location specific information. The highest level sort is organization and you can drill-down to subinventory and locator (if locators are defined).

  • By Date - This graph sorts counts by various date attributes. By default, the graph is sorted by Count Due Date, and you see the counts with the highest priority from a date perspective.

  • By Schedule - This graph sorts available counts by cycle count header, which contains the scheduling attributes. The By Schedule graph sorts available counts by cycle count header, which contains the scheduling attributes. Within each schedule the graph further sorts by cost group in the series dimension.

  • By Value - This graph deals with the total value of counts rather than the number of counts. The value of the items being counted often dictates the priority of the counts. Graphs with value are shown only when a single organization is selected because functional currency can differ from organization to organization.


The table displays various count attributes.

Note: The dashboard displays Cycle Count Headers data and the Cycle Count Entries data only if the Cycle Count Headers and the Cycle Count Entries descriptive flexfields are enabled.

Pending Approval (tab) This tab contains the following graphs and results table. You can look at the Pending Approval tab as a work queue. The graphs and results table each highlight an important dimension of counts that have been executed, counted, and found to be out of tolerance. The graphs and table in this tab expose count attributes that help prioritize and better manage the work load

Note: Out of tolerance counts require approval.

  • By Date - This graph sorts counts by various date attributes.

  • By Schedule - This graph sorts available counts by cycle count header, which contains the scheduling attributes.

  • By Value Change - This graph deals with the value change that results from the counts.


The table displays various lot attributes. To view the approval status, click Approval Status to navigate to the Monitor Activities History page. To perform actions on your selection, click the Options icon. If you select two or more rows, then you can click Compare. To view and perform required actions on your notifications, click Approve Counts to navigate to the Worklist page.

Note: The dashboard displays Cycle Count Headers data and the Cycle Count Entries data only if the Cycle Count Headers and the Cycle Count Entries descriptive flexfields are enabled.

Completed Counts (tab) This tab contains the following graphs and results table, each highlighting an important dimension of counts that have been completed, counted, and approved, if required. This tab provides a historical context, which may be beneficial when measuring today's performance.

Note: Out of tolerance counts require approval.

  • By Organization- This graph sorts counts by location specific information. The highest level sort is organization and you can drill-down to subinventory and locator (if locators are defined).

  • By Date - This graph sorts counts by various date attributes. By default, this graph is sorted by Count Due Date, and you can see the counts with the highest priority from a date perspective.

  • By Schedule - This graph sorts available counts by cycle count header, which contains the scheduling attributes.

  • By Value Change - This graph shows the value change that results from the counts. The size of the value change often dictates the priority of the counts in the approval process. Graphs with value are shown only when a single organization is selected because functional currency could differ from organization to organization.


The table displays various item detail attributes. You can perform the following row-level actions:
  • To view the approval status, click Approval Status to navigate to the Monitor Activities History page.

  • To perform actions on your selection, click the Options icon.

Staged Weight and Volume (tab) This tab contains theDetail Weight (Sum), Detail Volume (Sum) by Subinventory chart, which shows the weight and volume for staged delivery details to help you manage dock operations. The weight and volume are always associated with a subinventory. If locator control is enabled for the organization, then weight and volume can also be viewed by locator.
Delivery Details (results table) This table shows all delivery details that match the current refinements. SelectOrder, Inventory, Miscellaneous, and Additional Delivery Details from the drop-down list to view the associated data.
