    Yug, thanks for the insight. I'm hoping they have an updated answer otherwise I have to enter an ER. 

     

    Sincerely,

    To the best of my knowledge and based on my interaction with Oracle Support a few months ago, Oracle does not yet support Auditing for PPM.

    Thanks

    Gopal,

    The AP/PA/FA integration in Fusion Cloud is very similar to what is in EBS. However, the integration is a bit more nuanced based on different criteria.

    The simple answer to your issue 'I was expecting that since it is project related invoice, so it should not transfer to FA from payables. It should get transferred to FA by Project.' is that 'Only if it is a Capital Project, this transaction will not get interfaced to FA from AP. Otherwise, it will.'. It it is Capital Project, it will be interfaced to Projects first and later to FA from Projects.

    There are two columns called PA Addition Flag and Assets Addition Flag in AP Invoice Distributions and the value of those two columns determine how the integration of the records work.

    I have done some research on this issue. You can contact me privately for more details.

    Thanks

    That's correct.

  • Gopal Somani

    Thanks Dustin,

    Here is what is could understood from your explanation -

    If the project is 'Capital Project' then even if the Asset clearing account is populated at invoice distribution still it will not get transferred to fixed assets from Payables. It will be transferred to Projects and then from Projects the assets will be created in Fixed assets.

    Please confirm.

  • Dustin Grabowski

    Asset costs will be sent directly from AP to Fixed Assets OR through a Project Asset, it's mutually exclusive.  The decision is based on the Project associated to the invoice distributions being a 'Capital' project.  I suspect that the project that you are using does not belong to a project type that is enabled for capitalization.

    Hi Raj, long time no see. I believe that Oracle Fusion Project Integration Gateway has been deprecated by Oracle (and has been for a long time). Web services/file loaders are the only way I am aware of.

    HI Ratna,

     

    Thanks for your response. But I am still not clear -

    1. If i have assets clearing account in Payables Invoice and also project details are populated in that invoice then how would it work ? Would it go to fixed assets from Payables when i run create mass addition OR it would to to project and then asset will be created in Fixed Assets from Project.

    Please clarify.

     

  • Ratna Elete

    It does get transferred to FA when you run create Mass Additions due to Asset Clearing account.

    The integration works 2 ways.

    1.  It can be transferred to Projects by running Import Costs, adding asset/asset details etc. , accounting in final mode, transferring to FA and can be tied back in projects.  You need to run Generate Asset lines and Transfer to FA from projects.  Post the asset in FA after transfer and tie back in Projects.

    2.  It can be transferred to FA directly, create an Asset and assign that asset to Projects in Projects subledger.

    Regards,

    Ratna

    Ratna, double check that the asset has been placed in service. If not, 1. Change Project Asset Type to “As-built" and 2. Enter the "Actual in-service date".

    Double check too that all of the required asset details have been entered.

    Lastly, the output of the processes should point you in the direction of how things were processed and why/why not they are in the state they are in.

    Hi Fede - Please send me a direct message so that I can help you with more specifics. We have solutions for both the possibilities (by % or by time) that you cited in post.

    Hi Ryan - 

    I looked at that Idea. That is requesting for an automation (integration) for populating standard labor cost rates from HCM to PPM Rate Schedule. 

    However, this thread is more around how do we achieve "Actual" costing (not standard costing). Even if we have rate populated from HCM automatically, that will still have standard costing and there will still be difference between Actual payroll cost and standard cost. I do support that idea, it can really be useful.

    As John confirmed, Labor Distribution functionality is on road map of Oracle. It is not yet confirmed when it will be released.

    Hi Kent,

    Even though you can make these corrections in Projects module, I think you are better off making these corrections in AP as the process is simple and you can reconcile easily and your AP users doesn’t have to manually prepare misc costs spreadsheets to upload these adjustments. I think you can change your current process and make it easy for AP users.

    For scenario 1&2 you can use the same approach i.e adjust the invoice. You can duplicate the line which you want to change project attributes and cancel the original line. You can do this even for paid invoices, but you need to make sure allow adjustments to paid invoices is turned on the AP system options. Then you can let these adjustments flow to projects and generate any additional accounting for burdening etc (if you are using) and post to GL.

    For scenario 3, you can create AP credit memo and perhaps override the liability account to match credit account you used on Misc AR cash receipt. This way you can avoid the additional reclass entry.

     

    Thanks,

    Madhav.

    Hi Kent, 

     

    In all of the above scenarios, can't you just interface those corrections (like any other invoices) to Projects after posting to GL?

    That will make the necessary corrections in the invoices and posting to GL would post the costs to the correct accounts and interfacing to Projects will

    post the expenditures to the correct projects etc. Isn't that what you would want ultimately? Or you have any other requirements?
