5Put Away Receipts

This chapter contains the following:

Putting away received lines is the process by which goods are moved to their final destination.

These aspects are important when putting away received lines:

  • Lot and serial number information

  • Inventory or expense destinations

  • E-signatures for approval

  • Packing units

  • Multiple distributions

  • Receipt line transfer

  • Split lines

Note: When you put away a line with Inventory as the destination, inventory is automatically updated.

Lot and Serial Number Information

You can record lot and serial information or generate multiple lots and serial numbers for the material during put away.

If you select a receipt line for put away and the corresponding item is either lot or serial controlled, then you must enter the lot and serial information. If the complete receipt line corresponds to a single lot or serial range, then you can update the lot and serial information directly on the Put Away Lines page or the Put Away Line page. If not, then you can select the Record Lots and Serial Numbers item from the Actions menu to enter new lots and serial numbers.

Inventory or Expense Destinations

You can put away items to inventory or expense destinations. For inventory items, provide the subinventory and locator. For expense items, provide the deliver-to location.

E-signatures are captured for put aways only if the lines being put away have Inventory as the destination. If the line has Expense as the destination, the e-signature isn't applicable and not captured.

E-Signatures for Approval

If put away transactions are configured for approval using e-signatures, the E-Signature page opens when you put away a line and click Submit. Use the page to approve the transaction. E-signatures are captured for put aways only if the lines being put away have Inventory as the destination.

The e-signature IDs are recorded and available from the Manage All Lines and Transaction History pages.

For information about e-signatures, see the Oracle SCM Using E-Signatures and E-Records guide, available on the Oracle Help Center.

For information about how to configure e-signatures for supply chain management transactions, see the Oracle SCM Cloud Implementing Manufacturing and Supply Chain Materials Management guide, available on the Oracle Help Center.

Packing Units

You can enter the packing unit if material is kept inside a packing unit after put away or transfer.

Note: If you put away to an inventory destination, packing unit information isn't tracked after the put away. However, if you transfer material to a receiving subinventory, packing unit information will be available after completion of the transaction.

E-signatures are captured during the correction flow only if a line being corrected has the status as Delivered. E-signatures aren't applicable for other line statuses such as Received, Accepted, or Rejected.

Multiple Distributions

When a purchase order schedule contains multiple distributions and the receipt routing is set to direct delivery, the destination type defaults to Multiple. You put away at the distribution level if the receipt routing is direct delivery. You put away at the schedule level if the receipt routing is standard or inspection required. To expand the line and show all distributions, select the Show All Distributions item from the Actions menu of the Put Away Lines and Put Away Line pages.

For requisition-sourced transfer order lines, select the Show All Distributions item from the Actions menu to obtain the transfer order distributions and populate the receipt quantity for each distribution line. You can enter receipt quantities at the distribution level and the quantities for each distribution line are validated against the associated transfer order distribution quantity.

Note: In addition to the show all distributions option, you can edit the line with multiple distributions by changing the destination type from Multiple to Receiving.

Receipt Line Transfer

Transfer material by moving between different receiving subinventories. When you provide the receiving subinventory, the receipt line status automatically moves to Transferred.

Split Lines

You can split a line to receive in partial quantities to different inventory locations.

Select Split Line from the Actions menu.

FAQs for Put Away Loads

Use the split line action to put away part of a receipt line or to distribute the receipt line to multiple locations. Select Split Line from the Actions menu.

You must specify lot numbers and serial numbers.

You can enter the applicable lot and serial numbers directly into the table or select the Record Lots and Serial Numbers item from the Actions menu on the Put Away Lines page to record the applicable lot and serial numbers.

For receiving and putting away inventory items, you provide the subinventory, locator, and lot and serial information.

For receiving and putting away expense items, you provide the deliver-to location.

The changed transaction date must conform to the date tolerances set up on the Manage Receiving Parameters page.
