Oracle JD Edwards announces significant customer-driven application product improvements to empower companies on their journey to becoming digital enterprises. These enhancements provide companies broad solutions to maintain, improve and future proof their businesses.
Suppliers often offer discounts to purchasing organizations based on the total quantity, weight, or volume of the goods purchased. With Order Level Pricing in Advanced Pricing enabled for Procurement, such discounts can be applied to purchase orders. Procurement clerks can reprice purchase orders based on the total quantity, weight, or volume of the purchase order. This capability improves the accuracy of price information in the purchase orders.
When selected in Branch/Plant Constants, Product Cost Detail is now supported for configured order items when you run the Sales Update program (R42800). Prior to this enhancement, Product Cost Detail processing was not supported because it was based on frozen standard costs that do not exist for configured items. Now, for configured items, cost details are retrieved from the production cost table instead.
A processing option has been added to the Sales Order Entry program to specify that when copying a sales order, the cost is retrieved from the Item Cost File instead of the item cost from the copied sales order being retained. This option ensures that the current cost is being applied for the new sales order.
The Sales Order Management system includes two new automatic accounting instructions (AAIs) used to create G/L journal entries for cost adjustments when the on-hand quantity is zero and a cost is available in the G/L. The inclusion of these AAIs resolves the integrity issues between the Item Ledger and the Account Ledger eliminating the need to create manual G/L entries with zero balance adjustments.
Sales and customer service personnel can now modify price in real time when they engage with customers to negotiate price. The Sales Order Entry program has been enhanced to enable users to edit the price fields on sales orders released from sales blanket orders and sales quote orders.
To maintain integrity between the General Ledger and the Item Ledger, if the standard cost is changed after shipment confirmation, the Sales Update program retrieves the new standard cost value from the Item Ledger file during sales update processing.
The Sales Order Batch Price/Cost Update program has been enhanced to include an option to choose the exchange rate based on the current system date or the invoice date when the price is recalculated for a sales order line, enabling businesses to align currency processing to their unique business requirements.
With this enhancement, the correct buyer number appears in the purchase order header when you generate the purchase order from a requisition. With this information, you get to know the buyer responsible for procuring the items and services on the order.
The Purchase Order Approval capability can now be configured with a specific version of the application and sent to approvers as an email link. Approvers can launch the appropriate version of the application from the email to approve orders. This change eliminates clicks and improves user productivity.
With this enhancement on the Purchase Order Entry application, the system validates if the order amount has been changed and if the order should go back to the approval process. If the order amount has not been changed, then the already approved order lines will not go for approval when the zero cost purchase order line is canceled.
This enhancement ensures that two purchase orders cannot release the same blanket order quantity. The Purchase Blanket Release application has been enhanced to include record reservation so that blanket orders are locked at an order level (that is, Order Number, Order Type, and Order Company). Reserved blanket orders are released only when the Save or Cancel button is clicked in the Order Detail Revision form. If another user tries to access the reserved orders, an error will be prompted by the Blanket Release, Order Release, and Order Detail applications.
The Purchase Order Receipts program has been enhanced to display the appropriate supplier number on the Purchase Order Receipts form based on the item that a user selects for the receipt. This enhancement improves the accuracy of supplier information displayed in the Purchase Order Receipts program.
You can now make supplier lot information or serial number information mandatory in the Purchase Order Receipts program through the addition of three new lot processing validation types in the Item/Branch Lot Processing settings (Serial No. Required field).
Purchasing organizations now have improved visibility into costs of goods and services that are associated with landed costs. With the ability to apply and override the tax on the landed cost lines during the procurement process, procurement clerks can see the true expenditures per product and determine ways to reduce the expenditure. This ability provides an improved insight into the cost associated with your supply chain.
During redistribution of the logged voucher through Voucher Match, an error is prompted when G/L date of the voucher is earlier than the G/L date of the logged voucher. This validation ensures that the correct G/L date is captured in the voucher.
The Voucher Match Automation reports have been enhanced to display voucher pay items summarized by invoice for non-logged vouchers. This summarized information is displayed when the Single Voucher per Invoice processing option is set in the Voucher Match Automation Driver program. This enhancement improves the accuracy of information displayed on the Voucher Match Automation reports as the displayed data is consistent with the Accounts Payable Ledger records.
In the Voucher Match application, when you add a new line with the line type J using option 4, you can now enter the item number in that new line. The item number field is enabled through a new processing option Item Number Entry available in the New Order Line tab in the Voucher Match application. This option can be used when Advanced Cost Accounting is activated and a three-way voucher match is performed.
The Procurement Management system includes a new automatic accounting instruction (AAI) used to create separate journal entries for procurement price adjustments. The inclusion of the new AAI enables you to track the actual cost and adjustment amount under separate accounts in the General Ledger.
The Commitment Integrity report has a new processing option that enables you to omit the display of penny variances in the report. You can set a threshold value in the processing option, below which the variance will not be displayed in the report. This enhancement ensures that the system displays the information you need and makes it easier for you to review the report.
This enhancement takes into account any change in exchange rate when the retainage is released and balances the debit and credit amounts in the Retainage Payable account so that any difference in the amounts is adjusted to zero. These actions resolve the discrepancy in the Retainage Payable account in the Account Ledger Inquiry program.
The Agreement Master Program has been enhanced with options to validate whether an agreement partner has been placed on hold. This enhancement enables you to specify whether the system displays an error or continues to process the agreement for partners that have been placed on hold.
Planners and buyers can now view data available in the Supply/Demand Inquiry program and thereby ensure that interplant demand does not consume the forecast. A new processing option for the Supply/Demand Inquiry program enables you to specify up to five document types to be excluded from consuming the forecast. Prior to this enhancement, all sales orders including transfers consumed the forecast leading to inconsistency with the outputs determined by requirements planning.
This feature improves the requirements planning of lot-controlled items by reducing unconsumed inventory quantities based on a lot date such as the Sell By Date rather than the Expiration Date. A new processing option enables the Requirements Planning application and the Supply/Demand Inquiry and Report to use any of these dates for availability calculations: Expiration Date, Sell By Date, Best Before Date, User Defined Date 1–5, or the date indicated by the Commitment Date Method from the Item/Branch Master for each item. Prior to this enhancement, the expiration date was always used for availability calculation.
Managing the volume of forecast records improves requirements planning. A new program is available to purge selected forecast records, and optionally save them to a history table, eliminating the need for a manual or customized process.
Work Order Activity rules were previously added enabling system administrators to establish an allowed process flow for manufacturing work orders and rate schedules that is enforced by the system to prevent erroneous status updates and transactions. In this update, Work Order Ledger fields have been added to the activity rules to trigger entries into the ledger tables at selected statuses when a permitted activity updates header, parts list, or routing records of production orders. This ledger enables users to track changes and provides activity history to satisfy internal, auditing, and regulatory requirements.
The Work With Manufacturing Work Order program now consolidates parts list quantities by item, operation sequence, and component branch when a previous work order’s parts list is copied. This enhancement results in a single consolidated line for each of the items that were issued from several locations or lots, eliminating the need to edit the new parts list.
For some production operations such as heat treating or plating, the work center runtime might not vary based on the quantity being processed. To simplify fixed-time operations, a new time basis code value has been added to enable you to specify the fixed hours for scheduling, planning, costing, and accounting.
This feature significantly reduces the time taken to add or update cost extras. A new interoperability program has been provided so that cost component information can be updated at once for multiple items.
New processing options have been added to the Work Order Completions and Rate Schedule Completions Workbench applications that enable control of completion quantities. System administrators can now completely prevent partial completions and over completions beyond a specified percentage.
The Work Order Component Shortage Report now includes an option to consider inventory quantities from all locations to calculate shortages. Planners and buyers can now select this option to get a more complete picture of production shortage conditions for optimal planning.
Prior to this enhancement, an inspector or test technician was always allowed to exit Test Results Revisions without entering test results. A new setting added to the Test Revisions application and the Quality Management Preference Profile application now makes test result entry mandatory. When this option is set, the system generates an error if the result values are not entered when the test results are called for.
The Certificate of Analysis report has been enhanced to include Lot Expiration Date and additional lot information such as Country of Origin and Tester ID that can optionally be printed. The ability to include all relevant information on the report eliminates the time spent on manually gathering quality data.
A new report, Supplier Catalog Mass Update, is now available for you to update the Effective From date, Effective Thru date, and unit price of items in the supplier catalog. You can update these fields based on your preferred data selection. This capability significantly reduces the possibility of human errors and the time required for updating the supplier catalog.
The Supplier Catalog Maintenance program now includes an Item Number filter that enables you to search for a specific item associated with the supplier catalog. When this filter is applied, the system loads only the filtered item into the Supplier Catalog Revisions form. A reduced number of records on the form enables you to make updates without having to scroll through numerous records of other items associated with the supplier catalog.
A new interoperability program has been provided so that pricing managers can perform mass updates of base prices when the price changes are not determined by a fixed percentage or a fixed amount. The ability to receive, review, and revise pricing data from external sources improves efficiency and ensures that timely competitive pricing can be offered in accordance with market conditions.
Default display options are now available for Work with Item Availability. This enhancement enables users to personalize their view by specifying whether the Summary Only and Omit Zero Quantities options are selected on the Work with Item Availability form.
The Outbound Inventory billing process has been enhanced so that you can choose to generate a single invoice for all shipment made to a customer for a month. Previously, an invoice was generated for each shipment resulting in multiple invoices for customers you frequently ship to. This flexibility ensures increased customer satisfaction and improves billing process efficiency.
License plate picking optimization enables organizations using the license plates functionality to further maximize warehouse location utilization. Picking optimization provides customers the option to enable or disable breakdown of license plates and the ability to identify a license plate as a partial plate. Furthermore, the system performs optimized picking sequencing logic based on largest UOM, expiration date, and ascending or descending quantity. With license plate picking optimization, warehouse operators have the flexibility to specify how the system directs license plate picking, maximizing overall warehouse productivity.
The Freight Update program has been modified to continue processing a shipment or load even if errors occur. Errors that occur during processing are displayed in the Work Center. The ability to process all the shipments and loads without interruption ensures efficient use of time. Users can quickly identify the shipments and loads that have encountered an error and focus on those while being assured that all the other shipments and loads were processed successfully.
The Cycle Billing program now includes processing options that enable you to create separate deferred G/L entries for price adjustments and detached adjustments for sales order transactions. These options provide visibility to the deferred revenue and unbilled A/R entries for price adjustments and detached adjustments on a sales order line.
A generic plug-in is now provided to consume mileage or distance web services offered by vendors in the logistics industry. This generic plug-in enables customers to retrieve the distance from an origin postal code to a destination postal code to determine transportation rates in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system. Additionally, customers can retrieve distances based on the geocodes of the origin and the destination to determine rates.
Edits to the Block Type are now allowed when the Block Status is Active, eliminating the need for additional steps.
The Unit of Measure (UOM) for both planned and current estimates can now be overridden to match the primary UOM of the item for the block or harvest. This override enables harvesters to use a crop-relevant UOM when receiving weigh tags, eliminating the need for manual UOM conversions.
The Project Status Inquiry application provides real-time manager and executive-level assessment of the financial status of projects including budgets, actuals, and forecasts. Previously, customers had access to job-level financials, but did not have a solution to interactively view their business at a single-project or multiple-project level. Project Status Inquiry addresses that business process gap by providing interactive access to financials at a single-project or multiple-project level. This new application reduces the time to review detailed and summarized information about projects, enabling project managers to identify issues and opportunities early on.
Within Job Master, if Vertex Sales Tax Q Series is activated, when you use the search capability for the Tax Explanation Code-Tax Rate/Area field, the system retrieves the values from the Retrieve GeoCode application (P73GEO) rather than from the Tax Area X-Reference application (P06TAR).
The Work with Job Forecast Details application has been updated with a Copy button enabling users to copy an existing forecast to a new forecast with the same job. Additionally, the Copy Attachments and Remarks from Prior Period Forecast processing option has been updated to enable users to copy the media attachments and the remarks from approved forecasts while adding an existing forecast to a new forecast. This change significantly improves user productivity with the need for fewer clicks.
When an Extra Purchase Order (EPO) commitment is being canceled from the Lot Start Workfile program, the cancellation date can now be specified. This change provides the project accountant the much needed flexibility to supply the specific cancellation date instead of the system date, which is critical for reflecting the canceled commitment in the proper accounting period.
The Community Revisions application has been simplified by including the associated descriptions for Community Address, Construction Office Address, and Sales Office Address. This change makes it easier for builders to understand these attributes clearly.
Real estate accountants now have the ability to process straight-line rent based on the company’s fiscal date pattern. Previously, straight-line rent was processed based only on the calendar year and month. Processing straight line rent by the company’s fiscal date pattern more accurately associates rent revenue to the company’s fiscal year and to the period in which it is earned or realized.
The Unit Master Revisions form has been simplified by including the associated descriptions for Unit Status, Expense Participation Unit Type, State, and Country, making it easier for property managers to more clearly understand unit attributes.
Lease attachments can now be accessed and managed from the Lease Master, Sales Information, and Security Deposit applications as well as the Sales Overage Listing and Security Deposit Critical Date reports, providing lease administrators easier access to important lease-related information.
The Sales Overage Generation program can now be run in proof mode enabling property managers to validate results prior to update, improving accuracy and reducing rework.
Advanced Real Estate Forecasting has been enhanced to provide flexibility in the sources of account information that are included in the budget calculation process. Account information from other buildings, as defined in the expense participation process, may now be included in the budget calculation for a building. Budget managers can create more accurate budgets using all the pertinent account information that affects each building’s budget.
The Price Adjustment Type program has been modified to support the Rounding Adjustment option when Service & Warranty Management is selected as a Target Application on the Modify Adjustment Controls form. With this modification, users can now include rounding rules in the Price Adjustment Detail Revisions program to support Service Contracts, Service Work Orders, Case Management, and Warranty Claims programs.
Row exits are now provided in the Work with Equipment Master program to access the Service Work Order Self Service Entry form and the Equipment Work Order Entry form to create work orders. These row exits pass the equipment number to the appropriate work order program eliminating several clicks.
When a credit is made to an equipment or service work order, parts quantities must be credited as well. A configuration has been added to the Capital Asset Management and Service Management systems to automatically credit the parts quantities. Automating this step reduces errors and simplifies the processing of credit transactions.
The Capital Asset Management and Service Management systems have been enhanced to warn users when they add an obsolete part number to a work order. This real-time warning reduces rework and increases adherence to parts use policies.
Service Management now prevents the creation of work orders or contracts against inactive equipment. This real-time edit prevents errors at the source, improving data quality and eliminating rework.
Some benefits, such as reimbursement received for a household goods move, can be taxable at the federal level but considered as excludable income at the state level in some states. PDBA setup now enables benefits administrators to define pay codes as exempt for a specific list of states and taxable for all other states.
The Payroll system now includes a report that cross-checks the Employee Transaction History Summary table against the Tax History table to validate wages and the accuracy of records for associated taxes. This new integrity report gives payroll professionals increased confidence in their payroll data ahead of filing the W2 forms, especially if manual adjustments or other changes have occurred throughout the year.
The payroll application can now be configured to define the annual hour limits by pay type, which are validated at time entry. This configuration along with the real-time editing option simplifies the process of managing the annual hour limits for accruals such as sick time and vacation time.
The process of adding a new employee through Employee Master has been simplified now that the Given Name, Middle Name, and Surname fields are automatically populated in Who’s Who.
You can use processing options to expand any of the sections (What, When, Who, Where, and Additional Information) of the Speed Incident Entry application upon entry. When the processing option for a section is set to open upon entry, you will find the section expanded and ready for data entry. With this enhancement, additional clicks are eliminated resulting in simplified user experience.
The Health and Safety Incident Management system has been updated so that an email notification is automatically sent to the supervisor of the person creating an incident. Awareness of incidents as they are reported enables managers to meet regulatory and other internal reporting deadlines.
Whenever updates are made to an Address Book Who’s Who record, real-time event notifications can be sent to an external system to keep the Who’s Who data in sync. This real-time event has been expanded to include all Who’s Who columns enabling our customers to automatically sync this information to an external system and eliminating the possibility of duplicate data entry and other issues that can occur when data is manually entered into separate systems.
Improved duplicate address book validation now alleviates the potential for duplicate records when you enter, revise, or upload address book records. If this option is activated, the system displays a list of potential duplicate entries when it finds existing records in which any of these values match with the new or updated entries: alpha name, city, ZIP code, tax ID, postal code, or address. This change provides increased data accuracy, thereby enabling precise reporting.
Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable processes have been enhanced to fully capture the model journal entry information such as Subledger, Remark and Cost Object, and so on when Invoice and Voucher Company Tax Constant is set to track taxes by pay item. This enhancement fully leverages the model journal entry feature eliminating the need for manual date entry of the G/L distribution.
Analyzing the account balance details of customers based on the current credit or collection manager is vital for accounts receivable departments. To enable this analysis, the Account Balance Inquiry program, the Update A/R from Address Book report, and the Credit Analysis Refresh report have been enhanced to include or process information based on the current credit or collection manager. This enhancement enables credit and collection managers to analyze account information for their current customers and thereby make strategic decisions for the collection of funds from customers and adjustments to credit limits.
Accounts Receivable applications have been enhanced to ensure improved data quality for invoices, receipts, and drafts. This enhancement eliminates data conflict by ensuring that transactions are blocked for update by a user or an application when they are already in the process of being updated by another user or application.
The automatic receipt processes now include a configuration to determine whether discounts can be taken on partial payments of invoices. This enhancement provides accounts receivable specialists simplified controls to enforce corporate discount policies.
The “multi” voucher entry applications have been enhanced to enable users to enter the business unit and asset on each line during voucher creation. This functionality improves the usability of the application by eliminating additional manual updates after entry.
Manual Payment with Match now includes an option to choose the source of the bank account. The bank account can be retrieved from the selected vouchers or from the automatic accounting instructions. This enhancement provides A/P departments the flexibility to optimize their use of bank accounts.
G/L Batch Status History maintains an audit trail of all additions, deletions, and updates to the batch status in the Batch Header table. This enhancement provides the required information (who, what, when) and enables auditors and accountants to audit actions taken against all the batches of general ledger transactions, resulting in improved financial controls and strengthening Segregation of Duties compliance.
The general ledger cash basis report performs edits for many conditions such as missing AAIs, invalid account numbers, invalid posting edit codes, and invalid document types. The report has been enhanced to provide accounting specialists with detailed error messages, significantly reducing the time required to clear cash basis errors.
As part of period-end processes, accountants need to reconcile balances and verify that none of the accounts have any unreconciled transaction. To fulfill this need, the Print Reconciliation Report has been enhanced with an option to print Total Open Amount, Balance per Book, and Books plus Open amounts when there are no unreconciled transactions for an account. This enhancement provides the accountants with the certainty that all accounts are reconciled, and improves the accuracy of their financial statements.
Many organizations run their fixed asset transaction reports regularly, often as scheduled jobs. The Unposted Fixed Asset Transaction report and the Process Fixed Asset Transaction Integrity report can now be configured to run over the current fiscal year by default, eliminating the need to modify versions for each new fiscal year.
Users who rarely have the need to view child assets or disposed assets can now configure the Asset Master and Equipment Master applications so that these assets are not displayed. By providing this flexibility based on user or role preference, this feature reduces the number of clicks required and simplifies user experience.
The Asset Transfer program now updates the Responsible Business Unit in the Equipment Master table as well as the Asset Master table. This change ensures data integrity between the Asset Master and Equipment Master tables when you make a global change of asset information during the transfer of a fixed asset.
The lease accounting amortization creation process now facilitates the use of the date pattern associated with the billing frequency for recurring billing information during the creation of amortization schedules. Customers are no longer limited to date pattern R for recurring billing. This enhancement simplifies the setup and maintenance of Lessee Balance Sheet Accounting.
Lessee accounting can now be configured to include subledger detail containing the leased asset ID in all Lessee Accounting entries including recurring billing, manual billing, lease commencement, monthly journals, remeasurement, and early termination. This functionality enables accountants to more easily track and reconcile lessee accounting journal entries by leased asset.
Employees authorized to enter and review expense reports for other employees need the ability to submit those expense reports. Expense Management can now be configured to enable proxies to submit expense reports for others. This capability ensures business continuity during employee absences and provides an auditable framework.
Employee expense administrators often remove an employee’s profile and related credit card information when the employee leaves the organization. The Expense Management system has been simplified so that when an employee profile is deleted, any associated credit card master data is automatically removed as well, thereby eliminating an extra step and improving data quality.
