Introduction

Overview of Setting Up Supply Chain Orchestration

Set up business rules that determine how to create supply documents and the processes that manage the supply request. Supply Chain Orchestration comes predefined with supply data you can use with little or no set up.

To set up supply orchestration, in the Setup and Maintenance work area, go to the functional area.

  • Offering: Manufacturing and Supply Chain Materials Management

  • Functional Area: Supply Chain Orchestration

Here are the tasks you use.

Task Description

Manage Supply Orchestration Lookups

Edit only the name of each predefined lookup that's enabled for extensibility.

Manage Supply Orchestration Attachment Categories

Create attachment categories that meet your business requirements. The predefined categories support the predefined business processes in Oracle Fusion SCM cloud.

Manage Supply Order Defaulting and Enrichment Rules

Create rules that determine when to route a transfer order through Order Management.

Manage Supply Execution Document Creation Rules

Create supply execution rules that determine when to create a purchase order for a transfer order request. Supply orchestration uses transfer, by default.

Here are other resources you might find useful to do create, read, update, and delete operations for supply orders.

For details about how to set up a configured item, see the Overview of Configure-to-Order topic.

Set Up Supply Order Rules

Set up rules that manage your supply orders.

  • Specify the transfer orders to track. If a supply order meets the rule criteria you set, then Order Management creates a sales order and uses it to track progress.

  • Track items that are high in value or low in supply.

  • Track items that require monitoring throughout fulfillment.

  • Set up a wide range of conditional logic that meets your business requirements.

  • Use different attributes depending on the supply type.

    • The make flow uses the work order status ID for work orders.

    • The transfer flow uses the DOO Shipment status for each back-to-back transfer order.

  • Order Management doesn't track transfer order shipments, by default. If you must monitor an item, you must create a rule.

Example

Here's an example rule.

  • If Supply Orchestration receives a transfer order, then ship it through Order Management.

Here's the rule you create.

If the requested supply type is transfer, then
ship through Order Management.

Note.

  • Supply orchestration receives a supply request for a transfer order.

  • Supply orchestration calls your rule at run time.

  • The rule ships the transfer order through Order Management.

Use the Supply Order Hierarchy

Use the tree on the Manage Supply Order Enrichment Rules page to find attributes you can use in your rule, then add them.

Use the tree on the Manage Supply Order Enrichment
Rules page to find attributes you can use in your rule, then add them.

The tree displays the supply order hierarchy.

  • A supply order is an object in Supply Chain Orchestration.

  • A supply order includes entities, such as Supply Lines.

  • Each entity includes attributes. For example, here are some attributes in the Supply Lines entity.

    • Supply Sourcing Detail

    • Back to Back Flag

    • Change Pending Flag

    • Contract Manufacturing Flag

    • Destination Business Unit

    • And many others

  • To add an attribute to your rule, click the attribute, drag, then drop it onto the rule.

    For example, drag the Back to Back Flag attribute onto the If statement of your rule.

You can use the tree to set up a wide range of conditional logic that meets your business requirements. Here are a few examples.

  • If the Back to Back Flag attribute is equal to True

  • If the Supply Line Status attribute is equal to Closed

  • If the Need By Date attribute is before 4/19/2019 6:02 PM in the Make Order Details entity of the Supply Sourcing Detail entity of the Supply Line entity

If you prefer not to use the tree, you can search directly in the If statement or Then statement for the entity, attribute, value, and so on.

If you prefer not to use the tree, you can search
directly in the If statement or Then statement

For example, click New Condition in the If area, then enter Req in the Create Condition dialog. The rule gets all attributes from the tree that contain the string req, then displays them in a list.

Each choice in the list includes the attribute name, and then the location of the attribute in the hierarchy. For example.

Choice in the List Description

Supply Request Date (Supply Order)

Supply Request Date attribute of the Supply Order object.

Requested Supply Type (Supply Order#Supply Line)

Requested Supply Type attribute in the Supply Line entity of the Supply Order object.

Requested Supply Type (Supply Order#Supply Line#Supply Sourcing Detail)

Requested Supply Type attribute in the Supply Sourcing Detail entity of the Supply Line entity of the Supply Order object.

Requested Ship Date (Supply Order#Supply Line#Supply Sourcing Detail#Buy Order Details)

Requested Ship Date attribute in the Buy Order Details entity of the Supply Sourcing Detail entity of the Supply Line entity of the Supply Order object.

Set the Condition

Use the Create Condition dialog to specify whether you need a purchase order, work order, or transfer order according to the type of supply request.

Use the Create Condition dialog to specify whether
you need a purchase order, make order, or transfer order according
to the type of supply request.

Set the Action

Use the Actions tree to drag an action onto the Do area.

Use the Actions tree to drag an action onto the
Do area.

Note.

  • Drag an action.

    Action Description

    Set Work Order Status

    Set the Work Order Status attribute to Unreleased or Released.

    Ship Through Order Management

    To ship the order through Order Management Cloud, set this action to Yes.

  • Don't use any other action.

Set Up Rules for Supply Orders

Set up rules that manage your supply orders.

Assume you must create a rule.

  • If Supply Orchestration receives a transfer order, then ship it through Order Management.

  1. In the Setup and Maintenance work area, go to the task.

    • Offering: Manufacturing and Supply Chain Materials Management

    • Functional Area: Supply Chain Orchestration

    • Task: Manage Supply Order Defaulting and Enrichment Rules

  2. On the Manage Supply Order Defaulting and Enrichment Rules page, click Create New Rule.

  3. Enter values.

    Attribute Value

    Rule Name

    Ship Transfer Orders Through Order Management

  4. Specify the type of order you need.

    Use the Create Condition dialog to specify whether you need a purchase order, make order, or transfer order according to the type of supply request.

    In this example, you need a transfer order.

    • In the IF, area click New Condition.

    • In the Create Condition dialog, enter Requested Supply Type, wait a moment, then click Requested Supply Type (Supply Order#Supply Line).

    • Set the condition to Is Equal to Transfer, then click OK.

  5. Click Then > Do.

  6. In the Do area, click New Action > Perform an Action.

  7. In the Create Action dialog, choose Ship Through Order Management.

  8. Set the Ship Through Order Management Flag attribute to Yes, then click OK.

Example Rule for Work Orders

Here's an example of a rule that processes a work order.

rule that processes a work order.

It states.

  • If the Requested Supply Type attribute is equal to Make, then set the Work Order Status attribute to Released.

Set Up Document Creation Rules

Create a rule that determines the type of supply to transfer between inventory organizations. Specify the business process and document type to use between organizations.

  • Supply Orchestration uses a transfer order between inventory organizations to create supply, by default. Your legal or business requirements might need a buy transaction. Set up a rule that creates a purchase order instead of a transfer order.

  • Set up the rule at design time. Supply Orchestration applies the rule at run time when it creates supply.

  • Rules run automatically. Improve accuracy and timeliness, and reduce cost because you don't need to do it manually.

  • Reduce the cost of transferring material between departments in your company.

  • Extend your set up to accommodate change in your business environment, such as business growth, reorganization, merge, or acquisition.

Note.

  • Supply Orchestration doesn't come predefined with rules that create supply. If you must create supply that doesn't use a transfer order, then you must set up your own rule.

  • Use your rule only to create purchase orders for transactions between one source inventory and one destination inventory, or between one source warehouse and one destination warehouse.

Set up a rule that uses a purchase order to create supply between organizations.

Assume you work for Vision Corporation. Vision creates a new factory in Denver to meet an increase in demand. Your main factory is in Los Angeles. You must transfer material from Los Angeles to Denver, but Denver is an independent profit center in Vision, so you need a rule that converts the transfer order to a purchase order.

  • If the Requested Supply Type attribute equals Transfer, and if the Organization Code attribute equals Los Angeles, and if the Destination Organization Code attribute equals Denver, then set Requested Supply Type to Buy.

Here's your rule.

If the Requested Supply Type attribute equals Transfer,
and if the Organization Code attribute equals Los Angeles, and if
the Destination Organization Code attribute equals Denver, then set
Requested Supply Type to Buy.

Do it.

  1. In the Setup and Maintenance work area, go to the task.

    • Offering: Manufacturing and Supply Chain Materials Management

    • Functional Area: Supply Chain Orchestration

    • Task: Manage Supply Execution Document Creation Rules

  2. On the Manage Execution Document Creation Rules page.

    Attribute Value

    Name

    Create Supply for Denver

    Description

    If moving items from Los Angeles to Denver, then convert transfer order to purchase order.

  3. Add the If statement and Do statement.

    For an example that adds statements in a rule, see the Set Up Rules for Supply Orders topic.

Make sure you enable the View Supply Orders According to Requested Delivery Date opt-in feature.

Administer and Maintain

Orchestrate Supply Requests for Projects

You can orchestrate supply requests that include project data in Supply Orchestration.

  • Receive and orchestrate transfer requests across different organizations that include project data from Self Service Procurement.

  • Receive and orchestrate transfer requests within a single organization or across different organizations that include project data from the Supply Request REST API.

  • Receive and orchestrate purchase requests that include project data for outside processing from Manufacturing.

  • Supply Orchestration gets default values for project data and validates cost transactions for each project.

Examine Project Details

In the Search area, click Add Fields to add the Project Number and Task Number, then use these attributes to search for supply requests that include project data. Do your search on various pages in the Supply Orchestration work area.

  • Manage Supply Lines

  • Supply Order Details

  • Manage Supply Request Exceptions

View the full set of project data on each supply line, such as Project Name, Task Number, Expenditure Item Date, Expenditure Type, Expenditure Organization, Contract Number, and Funding Source.

For example, view them on the Manage Supply Lines page.

view them on the Manage Supply Lines page

Points to Consider

  • If you use the Supply Request REST API.

    • You can capture project data only for transfer requests.

    • You can capture only the project number and task number, or you can capture the full set of project data. If you capture only the project number and task number, or only part of the full set of project data, then Supply Orchestration keeps the values you capture and gets default values for the project attributes you don't capture.

  • If validation fails for the project cost transaction, or if a setup or technical error occurs, then you can manually correct the error and use the Supply Orchestration work area to resubmit the supply request.

    For example, if the expenditure type isn't active during the expenditure item date, then use the Manage Expenditure Types page to validate the expenditure type date. Resubmit the supply request so orchestration can successfully process the transfer request for the project.

Orchestrate Supply Requests from Replenishment Planning

Receive and orchestrate movement requests, transfer requests, and buy requests that include subinventory details from Replenishment Planning.

Replenishment Planning maintains optimum inventory levels to meet customer service targets at the lowest inventory cost. Replenishment Planning releases supply recommendations, such as movement requests, transfer requests, and buy requests, to Supply Orchestration. These requests include subinventory details. Supply Orchestration orchestrates and tracks the supply creation process for movement requests, transfer orders, and purchase orders.

You can use the Supply Orchestration work area to search for these requests and orders. You can limit the search to view only supply requests from Replenishment Planning, or you can include supply requests from other demand sources and get a complete supply picture.

Assume you need to limit your search to view only supply requests from Replenishment Planning.

  1. In the Supply Orchestration work area, click Tasks > Manage Supply Lines.

  2. On the Manage Supply Lines page, click Add Fields, then add the attributes.

    • Supply Request Source

    • Movement Request

  3. In the Search area, set values, then click Search.

    Attribute Value

    Supply Request Source

    Oracle Fusion Replenishment Planning

    Movement Request

    Yes

  4. Examine the search results. They include all movement requests that Supply Orchestration has received from Replenishment Planning.

Improve Performance

Here's how Supply Orchestration gets its supply requests.

how Supply Orchestration gets its supply requests

Note.

  1. Replenishment Planning adds requests to interface tables over time.

  2. When the requests in the interface table meet the parameters that the Process Supply Chain Orchestration Interface scheduled process specifies, then the process runs and creates supply orders for the requests.

  3. The Manage Supply Lines page in the Supply Orchestration work area displays the supply orders.

The scheduled process comes predefined to process Replenishment Planning requests in a batch, with a maximum of 10,000 requests in each batch, by default. You can't modify the Batch Size parameter for Replenishment Planning requests. However, you can use it when you run the scheduled process manually with other integrations, such as with Inventory, min-max planning, File-Based Data Import, and so on.

You can change the schedule to improve performance.

Assume you need to process Replenishment Planning requests in batches at least once for each day.

  1. Sign in with the Supply Chain Operations Manager job role.

  2. In the Navigator, click Scheduled Processes.

  3. On the Overview page, click Schedule New Process.

  4. In the Schedule New Process dialog, search for the Process Supply Chain Orchestration Interface scheduled process, then click OK > OK.

  5. Set a schedule so the scheduled process automatically runs one time each day.

    • Click Advanced > Schedule.

    • Enable the Using a Schedule option, then set values.

      Attribute Value

      Frequency

      Daily

      Days Between Runs

      1

      End Date

      Make sure the end occurs after the start date. You can set the end date to years in advance.

  6. Click Submit.

  7. Observe and modify.

    You could run the process every few minutes, but at the cost of consuming a lot of processing resources and degrading performance. Instead, adjust the parameters and the schedule until The Manage Supply Lines page displays supply orders according to your performance and timeliness requirements.

For other examples that use the Process Supply Chain Orchestration Interface scheduled process, see these topics.

  • Example of a PAR Replenishment Purchase Requisition

  • Example of a PAR Replenishment Interorganization Internal Material Transfer

Select and Assign Item Catalogs to Configured Items

You can specify the item catalogs that the configure-to-order process assigns to a configured item at run time when the user configures the item.

To use more catalogs, you can add them to a supply orchestration lookup.

You use an item catalog to categorize each configured item into a meaningful group to help manage the item and to summarize data to meet a variety of needs. For example, group data in a report, for tax purposes, to display sales details, or in a downstream system to manage fulfillment. You add an item catalog to a supply orchestration lookup, then use the lookup in processing that runs in the background to assign the catalog.

Assume you need to add the Configured Item catalog to your configured items.

  1. Identify the catalogs you can use with the item.

    • In the Navigator, click Setup and Maintenance.

    • In the Setup and Maintenance work area, go to the task.

      • Offering: Manufacturing and Supply Chain Materials Management

      • Functional Area: Catalogs

      • Task: Manage Functional Area Catalogs

    • On the Manage Catalogs page, notice the value in the Catalog Name attribute. You can reference any catalog that the Manage Catalogs page displays.

    • For this example, create a new one. Click Create.

    • In the Create Catalog dialog, set values.

      Attribute Value

      Functional Area

      Supply Chain Orchestration

      Catalog Name

      Configured Item

      Catalog Code

      Configured_Item

      Description

      Start Date

      Anytime before the current date.

      End Date

      Leave empty.

    • Click Save and Continue > Save and Close.

  2. In the Setup and Maintenance work area, go to the task.

    • Offering: Manufacturing and Supply Chain Materials Management

    • Functional Area: Supply Chain Orchestration

    • Task: Manage Supply Orchestration Lookups

  3. On the Manage Supply Orchestration Lookups page, search for lookup type ORA_CTO_CATALOG_COPY_REQUEST.

  4. In the Lookup Codes area, click Actions > New, then set values.

    Attribute Value

    Lookup Code

    Enter one of the names that you noticed on the Manage Catalogs page.

    For this example, enter Configured Item.

    Enabled

    Contains a check mark.

    Start Date and End Date

    Optional. Specify dates when the code is available.

Note.

  • At run time, Supply Orchestration automatically adds the catalog to the configured item according to the lookup code you specify. For example, when the user clicks Submit when creating a sales order. The add is transparent to the user.

  • Adding too many item catalogs to a configured item might affect performance at run time.

For more, see.

  • Set Up Configure-to-Order chapter in the Implementing Order Management book.

  • Define Catalogs chapter and Define Lookups section in the Implementing Common Features for SCM book.

Close Supply Orders That Are Open

Use a scheduled process to close supply orders that are open but that don't have pending actions.

If an unexpected system downtime or unexpected technical error occurs, then Supply Orchestration might not update the status for a supply order, and the supply order might be left in an open status even though fulfillment is done for the supply order.

Assume you create and submit sales order 86954 in the Order Management work area, and Supply Orchestration creates supply order 300100184370687 to fulfill 86954. A week later you experience a power outage. You restore power then notice the status for all fulfillment lines in 86954 is Closed, but the status for 300100184370687 remains Open.

use the Close Supply Orders scheduled process to
fix the problem.

You notice a similar situation for 20 other sales orders. You can use the Close Supply Orders scheduled process to fix the problem.

Assume you need a report of all open supply orders for requests that you received from Order Management, but the supply orders don't have any pending fulfillment actions.

Try it.

  1. Sign in with the Supply Chain Operations Manager job role.

  2. In the Navigator, click Scheduled Processes.

  3. On the Overview page, click Schedule New Process.

  4. In the Schedule New Process dialog, search for Close Supply Orders, set values, then click Submit.

    Attribute Value

    Report Only

    Add a check mark to create a report but don't close any orders.

    If you don't enable this option, then the scheduled process creates a report and closes the orders.

    Supply Request Source

    Required. Choose the source that sends the request to create supply to Supply Chain Orchestration.

    For example, choose.

    • Oracle Fusion Supply Chain Orchestration to search only for requests that you create in the Supply Orchestration work area.

    • Oracle Fusion Order Management to search only for requests that Order Management sends to Supply Chain Orchestration.

    Search for supply orders when you do contract manufacturing.

    • For an outside processing flow, set Supply Request Source to Oracle Fusion Common Work Execution and set Supply Type to Buy.

    • For a plan-to-produce flow, set Supply Request Source to Oracle Fusion Planning Central and set Supply Type to Make.

    For this example, choose Oracle Fusion Order Management.

    Supply Request Reference

    Optional. Leave empty, or choose a value to search only for supply orders associated with a single sales order, purchase order, or work order.

    If you set Supply Request Source to.

    • Order Management, then set Supply Request Reference to the sales order.

    • Procurement, then set Supply Request Reference to the purchase order.

    • Inventory Management, then set Supply Request Reference to the work order.

    Supply Request Batch Number

    Optional. Leave empty, or choose a batch to narrow the search.

    This parameter identifies the import batch number on the interface table. If you specify it, then the scheduled process will process all supply orders in the import batch.

    For details about import, see the Overview of External Data Integration Services for Oracle Cloud topic.

    Supply Type

    Optional. Choose a flow to narrow the search.

    For example, choose Transfer to search only for supply orders that involve an internal material transfer.

    Item

    Optional. Choose an item to search only for supply orders that contain the item.

    For example, choose the AS54888 Standard Desktop to search only for supply orders that fulfill the AS54888.

    From Creation Date

    To Creation Date

    Conditional. Enter values to narrow the search according to the date when Supply Orchestration created each supply order.

    • Both dates must occur on or before the current date.

    • The duration that the dates specify must not exceed 90 days. For example, you can specify January 1, 2019 to March 31, 2019, which includes a duration of 90 days, but you can't specify January 1, 2019 to April 1, 2019 because that duration includes 91 days.

    • If you set Supply Request Reference or Supply Request Batch Number, then you don't need to set the dates.

  5. On the Overview page, in the search results, click Refresh until the status for your process is Succeeded.

  6. In the Log and Output area, next to Attachment, click the link inside the parentheses, such as (1 more. . .), then click the .txt file, such as 103648.txt.

  7. Examine the report output.

Here's part of an example report.
