    Account Period Close Error for PPM1

    Account Period Close Error for PPM
    Summary:
    PJF_CAL_GL_ACCTD_ERR_PAY Error during PPM Close
    Content:

    After running close process and running exceptions report the following errors appear and keeps us from closing. We have imported and processed all costs from AP and validated that they were pulled in. What else can I try? I have opened a SR but wondering if anyone else has seen these before. Support is often slow to reply.

    • PJF_CAL_GL_ACCTD_ERR_PAY The accounting period wasn't closed because the transaction is accounted in Oracle Payables in this period but isn't yet transferred and imported.
    • PJF_CAL_EVENT_REV_GEN Revenue isn't fully recognized for this completed revenue event.

    Add Plain cost amount of Labor to Project Plan
    Topic posted June 18, 2019 by Maarten van ZoestGreen Ribbon: 100+ Points, tagged Capital Projects, Project Planning, Budgeting, & Forecasting in Project Management public
    Title:
    Add Plain cost amount of Labor to Project Plan
    Content:

    Hi all,

    Within the Project Costing section in PPM, we would like to add Labor Resource to the Project Planning in a 'plain' raw cost amount, instead of specifying the quantity of hours (for which a rate schedule should be setup again). Please see also the screenshot attached. Reason for this requirement is that we are going to incur labor hours directly in the PA module, and when not adding to the project planning (which will lead to the first version of the budget), the labor hours that will be written are being incurred as unplanned costs (which has its consequences again on the Estimate at Completion amount). We'd like to have it being written on the project as planned cost.

    Also, we'd like to add this Labor amount to the project level, instead of adding it to the task level.

    Does anyone has an idea on this?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Kind regards,
    Maarten

    Best method to set Capitalizable indicator on expenditure items using Work Types
    Content:

    In EBS Project Costing, Work Type have a Capitalizable flag to be used to update expenditure items.

    Capitalizable flag does not exist on Work Types in Fusion/Cloud PPM.  

    Anybody have a good idea on how to try to mimic the work type Capitalizable function in Cloud PFM?

    Allow Inactive HCM Assignments to update Cost Rate Table45.0

    Title:
    Allow Inactive HCM Assignments to update Cost Rate Table
    Summary:
    If an assignment has been end dated after Payroll has processed and prior to the Projects cost rate table being updated then we get Projects exceptions.
    Content:

    If an assignment has been end dated after Payroll has processed and prior to the Projects cost rate table being updated then we get Projects exceptions. 

    One scenario is that an employee is getting a promotion in the middle of a pay period.  If HR executes the core HR action of creating a new assignment (i.e. promotion assignment) and end date the old assignment in the middle of a timecard period Payroll will be correct because it can date track.  However, when we go to enter in cost rates into Projects after Payroll has processed and we have actual costs the old assignment that has been end dated throws an exception in projects.

    Another scenario is that an employee has changed jobs and now has a different cost rate and the core HR transaction takes place after payroll has been processed in preparation for the next round of time collection.  If the old assignment is end dated prior to updating the cost rate table in Projects then Projects will throw an exception.

    The request is to relax this constraint to allow for any assignment that was captured in OTL and Payroll for a given time card and pay period to be allowed to be entered into the cost rate table and not throw an exception.  Or allow for a configuration setting to allow for a business to determine if they will allow costs with an end dated assignment to be imported or not.

    To avoid these exceptions in Projects we have had to implement a complicated set of small working windows where core HR actions can take place or cost rate tables can be updated.  What would make more sense is to allow for whatever was approved and paid via the timecard to be the source of truth and have projects assume that what it is getting is accurate even if the assignment has been end dated in the HCM record.

    Hi, we have a requirement where the customer wants to generate fixed dollar invoice each month. The project duration could be 5 years and it will be a difficult step to create manual event each period across projects. is there a better way to handle this situation based on an amount based bill plan?

    We have an award/project that was setup with the incorrect home organization. There have been no expenditures charged to the project as of today. I can see that I can change the home org however it that something we should be do? Is it something that can be done only if no expenses have been charged to the award/project?

    Can we create Maintenance Work orders for Projects
    Content:

    Hi,

    I am trying to explore the functionality of creating Maintenance work orders for Projects.

    I have a few questions for the same:

    1. Is it possible to create work orders and associate them with Project Information
    2. Also, how the cost of the work order will get transferred to Oracle Projects
    3. The time charged by Resource against any work order will go to Projects and then to OTL or it will directly go to OTL?
    4. Please suggest how we can achieve the requirement of creating work orders against the project and billing the same.

    Thanks

    Capture Group Assets from FA in Oracle PPM
    Topic posted May 17, 2019 by Aastha Ahuja, tagged Capital Projects, Project Costing, Project Management in Project Management public
    Title:
    Capture Group Assets from FA in Oracle PPM
    Content:

    Hi,

    Scenario: While creating an asset in Oracle PPM, I am not able to capture a Group Asset created in FA in the "Parent Assets" field in the Edit Asset Details page. A group asset doesn't come up in the LOV for parent assets. 

    Even after transferring a PPM asset to FA, The Asset type cannot be changed to group asset.

    I am looking for a confirmation on the following :

    1. Is the product designed such that a group asset should not appear in the list of values for parent asset in PPM

    2. Is there any other way, by which a group asset information can be captures on a PPM Asset.

     

    Looking forward to your comments

     

    Thanks,

    Aastha

    Errors trying to close PPM for year-end
    Summary:
    5 issues/errors and need to figure out best way to handle/address (see below for details)
    Content:

    PJF_CAL_BILL_TXN_COSTED

    PJF_CAL_EVENT_REV_GEN (I think this has to do with events that the end-user didn't put the project on the event so it doesn't know how to assign the revenue...I can do mapping for a "oops" configuration, but need to know then how to move all those events into the correct fund source to recognize the revenue???)

    PJF_CAL_RDL_UNACCTD_ERR

    PJF_CAL_GL_UNACCTD (These are supplier invoices)

    PJF_CAL_UNSWEPT_ERR (are these transactions that are currently in process and really aren't an issue?)
