      Our customer is going live with Oracle SCM Cloud on September 1. They are concerned by the Cost Rollup functionality in 19A, which rolls up all items in the Cost Organisation. Therefore, they are really interested in the improvements in 19B. I've read the release readiness, but I'm still not 100% sure how it will work. Can you show screenshots of the parameters that can be used when running the process? 

      Ideally, if they create a new finished good, they only want to roll up the cost for that finished good (and it's sub assemblies). That way, no existing items are affected. But I don't think it'll work this way.

        Hi Sam,

        The Manufacturing Cloud 19B Overview session will be covering the work definition and work execution related features that were made available as part of Update 19B. Having said that, Cost Management Product Management team is currently evaluating your queries and would be providing a response soon.

        Hi Sam,

          In Cost Management cloud, there are 2 functionalities that will help users restrict the finished goods getting rolled up in their cost scenario.

        1. Where Used (Delivered in 19B) - This functionality enables users to run the cost rollup for finished goods whose components have undergone cost changes. Take an example, there are 2 sub-assemblies AB and CD, and the finished good is ABCD. Now assuming that A's cost has undergone a change, user can indicate the Rollup Scope of the scenario is Where Used, enter the new cost of A in the scenario and run cost rollup. The rollup will now rollup AB and ABCD, but it will not rollup sub-assembly CD.

        2. Selected Items/Selected Item Categories (Delivered in 19C) - This functionality enables users to run cost rollup for specific items or item categories only. So let's say you only want to rollup ABCD in the previous example. You can specify the Rollup Scope as Selected Items, select ABCD for the scenario and then run cost rollup. You also have the option to run Single-Level Cost Rollup and with the given example, it will only rollup finished good ABCD.

        I am attaching a screenshot to the attribute Rollup Scope in the cost scenario definition screen.Hope this helps.

          Thanks Sritama. This is great. The functionality in 19C is a major improvement and a must have. Can you please explain or show what Item Catalog is used for the Selected Item Categories? Is it the Catalog assigned to the Cost Functional Area in Manage Functional Area Catalogs?
