    Part 1: Inventory Organizations, Deliver-to Locations, Subinventories: Interactions in Self Service Procurement Flows
    Summary:
    An overview of how inventory organizations, deliver-to locations, subinventories interact in Self Service Procurement transaction flows
    Content:

    Customers

    A lot of you have recently posted various issues/questions on topics that primarily relate to one idea:

    A better understanding of how the following entities are used in Self Service Procurement flows:

    a) Inventory Organization

    b) Deliver-to Location

    c) Subinventories

    Part 1:

    I am writing this article in the hope that it will clarify a lot of these questions on behavior, interactions and process.

    Part 2:
    I will be discussing why and how an understanding of these interactions is important in the next part. Stay tuned.

    1. Glossary:

    Before we go any further, let us get some terms understood clearly.

    A. Requisitioning BU:

    A business unit that has the business function 'Requisitioning' defined. This is the cornerstone of the Self Service Procurement application. See setup: Manage Business Unit for more details

    B. Inventory Organization:

    In the context of Self Service Procurement, the first thing to note is that the terminology you will see is 'Deliver-to Organization'. This is the inventory organization that carries master items that are then configured as part of catalogs or on master agreements to then make it available for shoppers in the shopping flows. Setup: Manage Inventory Organizations

    NOTE: For the purposes of this article, I will be using the two terms interchangeably

    C. Location:

    This typically represents a physical location where a requester's items ought to be delivered. Setup: Manage Locations

    D. Subinventory:

    A subinventory is a sub entity of an inventory organization. It typically represents a storage facility for items. Subinventories are setup in the context of an inventory organization. Setup: Manage Subinventories and Locators.

    2. Relationships:

    Here is a quick overview of how these entities are related (as far as Self Service Procurement flows go)

    1. A Requisitioning BU is associated with one or more inventory organizations using the Manage Business Unit attribute in the inventory organization setup (See Screenshot A in the attached word document)

    NOTES: One Requisitioning BU can be associated to multiple deliver-to organizations through this setup

    2. A Location is associated to an inventory organization in two ways:

    a) In the Inventory Organization setup, you select a location

    b) In the Manage Locations setup, you can associate that location to a 'default' inventory organization (See Screenshot B in the attached document)

    NOTES: 

    a) These are not reciprocal. One location can be assigned to several inventory organizations via a). But one location can only be assigned one inventory organization via b)

    b)  If no inventory organization is associated to a location in b), that is termed a 'Global Location'.

    3. A subinventory is associated with an inventory organization via Manage Subinventories and Locators setup. One inventory organization can have one or more subinventories associated with it

    4. A deliver-to organization is stamped on a requisition line primarily from the Requisition Preferences setup as follows:

    a) If the Deliver-to Location setup in Requisition Preferences is a 'Global' location, then the default deliver-to organization from the Configure Requisitioning Business Function setup is used

    b) If the Deliver-to Location setup in Requisition Preferences is associated to a deliver-to organization in the Manage Locations setup, then that is used

    NOTE: A requisition on multiple lines can be associated to different Deliver-to Organizations as you can deduce from the above.

    5. The list of subinventories available in the Requisition Preferences page is based on 2 factors:

    a) Until the Deliver-to Location is picked, the list of subinventories will be all subinventories that belong to any deliver-to organization associated with the Requisitioning BU

    b) After a Deliver-to Location is picked, the list of subinventories will be restricted to only those that belong to the deliver-to organization associated with that deliver-to location (See D above)

    Hi - Are there any provision to prevent the pick release from consuming partial quantity?  i.e., if only 10 units are available and if the Transfer order is for 25 units, system should NOT pick release until there is 25 quantities on-hand.

    How to troubleshoot errors in the Self Service Receiving flow
    Content:

    Customers

    I thought I would pass on some useful information that we obtained as a reminder to you on an issue that customers report. 

    Problem:

    A few customers reported that they were able to successfully receive items through Inventory but the same process flow failed through Self Service Procurement

    Solution:

    We had published an article that gave you a primer on how to receive in Self Service Procurement previously

    Here is the link as a reminder: https://cloudcustomerconnect.oracle.com/posts/cd88b06cc1

    In addition, the Receiving team shared this information that I think would be useful to you the next time you encounter the issue:

    Please run the diagnostic script "Receiving Document Activity" by providing the PO # and the Sold to Legal entity for the PO. This diagnostic script will list the exact reason/s for the error on Submit - in the section entitled Staged Receiving Headers, Staged Receiving Transactions and Staged Receiving Errors.

    Hi Experts,
    Need your help 
    1) How can we capture Input Tax Credits (ITC) and claim the same (i.e. the correct Procuring Legal Entity needs to appear on the Purchase Order, and associated Invoices need to have a matching Legal Entity name)
    2) How to configure the enterprise structure so can we purchase by one legal entity on behalf of another legal entity
    3) How can we hold inventory at one location in a single Inventory Organisation
    4) Can we share inventory between legal entities
