    Inventory Miscellaenous Cost is not generating Asset Lines12
    Topic posted May 20, 2019 by Aditya Ranjan DeyRed Ribbon: 250+ Points, tagged Capital Projects 
    Title:
    Inventory Miscellaenous Cost is not generating Asset Lines
    Summary:
    AP Invoice, Exp Reports and Manual Misc Cost are creating Asset Lines. But Inventory Misc Cost is not generating.
    Content:

    PA period open for Mar, Apr and May. FA period open for Apr

    2 expenditures are as below -

    1. AP Invoice - 31st March, 2019 - Capitalized

    2. Inventory Misc Cost - 30 Apr 2019 - Asset line not generated

    Expenditure is capitalizable, accounted, UPPD run, asset assigned at project level, marked to As Built, DPIS = 30-Apr-2019, no adjustment recorded, no line splitting. 

    All setups starting from type to template to source in place. 

     

    Therefore, can you guess what can be the additional checks we might be missing. Has anyone faced this before?

    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..

    Functionality Differences Between Projects and Grants Accounting
    Content:

    Hi Everyone,

    Does anyone know of any documentation from Fusion of the differences between Projects Vs Grants.
    Here is a link  to an old documentation of Grants from EBS that lists the differences as to what is supported vs not supported in Projects Vs Grants (sample of what I am looking for).

    https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E18727_01/doc.121/e13567/T237204T237207.htm#T237263
    Functionality Differences Between Projects and Grants Accounting

    I am looking for something similar in Fusion to have better understanding of what is supported and not in Grants Vs Projects in Fusion.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    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

    Has anyone implemented Primavera integration to Fusion PPM using Oracle Fusion Project Integration Gateway.

    What's your experience? Is this real time or batch process? Have you encountered any specific issues during design and deployment?

    I'm keen to know integration around project creation and updates, tasks creation and updates, budgets creation and updates, forecasts creation and updates. Is it also possible to update EVM [earned value management] result too.

    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?

    There is no search capability in the Manage Organisation Trees screen, so it is difficult to check if Organisation are in the organisation tree.

    Has anyone figured out a quick way to figure out, even a useful sql query if you can share?
