    SLA rule to combine capital and non-capital cost10
    Topic posted April 23, 2019 by Chris Van de Graaf, tagged Capital Projects, Project Costing, Project Management 
    Title:
    SLA rule to combine capital and non-capital cost
    Summary:
    Client has both capital and no capital (billable/expense) cost on a capital project. I need to create a SLA rule to combine this. Capital cost are based on Task DFF and non capital cost are in mapping
    Content:

    Client has capital cost and non capital cost on a capital project. As I can't assign separate rule for capital cost and other cost, I have to combine my accounting logic in a single account rule. Capital cost are derived from a Task DFF. In the task DFF I maintain the asset category which in a separate value set is mapped to a GL account (in the description). For non capital cost I use a mapping set, mapping the expenditure type to the GL account. For both cost types (capital and non-capital) I can create separate account rules, but when I try to combine the two rules into a single (third) rule, I am not able to select the rule for the capital cost I assume that's because the rule type for the capital cost account is Value set. For the non capital cost the rule type is segment. As both rule types are different I assume I can't combine these account rules into another (third) rule.

    Any ideas how to resolve the issue to combine capital and non-capital cost into a single account rule..

    Labor Cost Distribution functionality in Oracle Cloud105.0

    Labor Cost Distribution functionality in Oracle Cloud
    Summary:
    What is Oracle's plan/roadmap to cater to Public Sector clients on this major functionality gap
    Content:

    In Public Sector, all clients are mandated to use 'Actual Labor Costing'. This requires distribution of actual salary amount to various projects and grants on the basis of a predetermined % or based on % time spent on projects.

    Let's use this thread to share our knowledge on Oracle's plan/roadmap and solution alternatives/work arounds.

    We have a very robust custom solution for this requirement, but want to be aware of other alternatives too.

    Mass updates of Team Members
    Content:

    Does anyone have a solution for updating/revising team members en mass? A company has 4,000 projects with the same PM and Project Admin. They need to change both on half the current projects. It will be very time consuming to go into each individual project and delete or end date the current person and add a new one. I've been told this can only be done individually through PPM and am looking for another solution. Thanks, Larry

    Loading Project Costs with an invalid Expenditure Org6

    Title:
    Loading Project Costs with an invalid Expenditure Org
    Summary:
    Loading Project Costs with an invalid Expenditure Org is no longer causing an error
    Content:

    Oracle Cloud Project Costing - Previously when Project Costs were uploaded with a Project/Expenditure Organization that was different than the one associated to the Project/Contract, the user received an error message.  This is no longer happening, Oracle Cloud will now allow costs to be loaded with the incorrect Project/Expenditure Organization.  It appears the Cross Validation Rules are no longer giving an error.  Has anyone else noticed this?  Is this controlled by a configuration setting?

     

    Thanks,

    'Person_Type' source not available for Labor Cost SLA Rule
    Summary:
    'Person_Type' source not available for Labor Cost SLA Rule
    Content:

    Hi All,

    We need to derive separate labor cost natural accounts for employee and contingent worker hence I was trying to create Constant value type account rule having the rule condition as where person_type is 'Employee' . Then similarly another line for a contingent worker but the person_type source itself is not available to put the condition against.

    How to identify the person_type or worker type for the cost transaction in SLA? The screenshot is attached.

    Thanks

    UNABLE TO DERIVE THE PROJECT SEGMENT IN COA FOR RECEIVABLE...6
    Topic posted November 7, 2017 by ARUNKUMAR JAYARAMAN, tagged Other, Project Management 
    Title:
    UNABLE TO DERIVE THE PROJECT SEGMENT IN COA FOR RECEIVABLE TRANSACTION JOURNAL BATCH
    Summary:
    We are unable to derive the project segment (3rd segment in COA) for the receivable transaction journal batch.
    Content:

    When we account the Project AR invoice, we are unable to derive the project segment (3rd segment in COA) for the receivable transaction journal batch.

    As of now the accounting entries are showing the Project Segment value as "00000"

    The requirement is that the Project Segment (3rd segment in COA) should display the respective project number.

    For example, for a given project number 12345, a Project Invoice is created & transferred to AR. When we account the AR invoice, the respective GL account code should be as follows.

    108-400792-12345-000000-000-000-000-0000-0000-0000
    108-520000-12345-000000-000-000-000-0000-0000-0000

    But, as of now the 3rd segment is displayed as 00000 as shown below.

    108-400792-00000-000000-000-000-000-0000-0000-0000
    108-520000-00000-000000-000-000-000-0000-0000-0000

    Please let us know how to achieve this.

    Not able to setup project budget approval
    Summary:
    We don't use budgetary control, but we need approval only for budget
    Content:

    Hello,

    Can anyone help me with the project budget approval setups? I am not able to enable 'Approveplan...' task under BPM  worklist, do I need to do any other setups under projects side to activate the approval workflow? Also I have the below questions:

    1. Does BPEL plays any role in project approvals?
    2. In case if I need to do anything under BPEL, is there any document available for direction?
    3. Is there any separate place I can setup projects hierarchy or can I use requisition hierarchy?

    Thanks in advance
