    19C Patch Testing - How to Prevent Notification Emails going...1

    Title:
    19C Patch Testing - How to Prevent Notification Emails going out?
    Content:

    Hi,

    We are testing 19C at the moment (19C (11.13.19.07.0)). I updated a BPA in Purchasing on the test system, and a notification was sent out to the Buyer linked to the BPA to say it had been changed - screenshot below.

    The notification was sent to the Buyer's real email address - so they didn't understand why they had received this notification.

    On R12 / 11.5.10 it was possible to set an override email address to prevent this type of issue from happening.

    Is there a similar option in ERP Cloud?

    Thanks

    Jim

    Adding PO line from catalog with different BPA and Supplier15.0

    Adding PO line from catalog with different BPA and Supplier
    Summary:
    Need to fully understand why the system allow to add new PO line from catalog with different BPA and Supplier.
    Content:

    Hi Gurus,

    Need your help for us to fully understand if the below scenario is a bug or what as we're not comfortable on how the system current functionality.

    So our scenario is, We have an existing PO having BPA = X and under Supplier = X, then as we all know we can add new line from a Catalog. Then we add new line from catalog having BPA =Y and Supplier = Y. The system allow us to completely process this PO.

     If the above functionality is allowed:

    1. Does the new added line from catalog with different supplier will now be under the supplier of the PO that we have? 

    2. Does it bypass the Agreement and Supplier originally setup for that added item catalog?

    Please help to explain.

    Appreciate your immediate inputs and help.

    Thanks in advance

    Haydee

    Summary:
    Approved Supplier List (ASL)
    Content:

    Hi,

    We have a requirement to restrict any purchasing (Req/Orders) for specific suppliers (Blacklisted).

    The approved supplier list functionality doesn't allow any restriction on Order creation when category and supplier from ASL is used.

    There are no Inventory items for now only categories.

    Also, i'm unable to find the source document - Blanket Purchase Agreements, there is only Contract Purchase Agreement in the drop down list under ASL source documents.The Generate Approved supplier list also doesn't show any agreement numbers.

    Please share if you have come across customers with similar requirement.

    Many thanks.

    ASL sourcing rules1

    Title:
    ASL sourcing rules
    Content:

    Scenario : 

    Item A has 3 potential negotiated suppliers with source agreements defined on approved supplier list : 

    Supplier X : Agreement 1 

    Supplier Y : Agreement 2

    Supplier Z: Agreement 3

    Requisitions now start to be sent through interface for item A with no source agreement defined.

    The goal is to have : 

    20% of requisitions sourced from supplier X (agreement 1)

    30% of requisitions sourced from supplier Y (agreement 2)

    50% of requisitions sourced from supplier Z (agreement 3)

     

    is it feasible to define somewhere source rules for approved suppliers so than once requisitions are sent through interface a % of it get assigned to respective agreements ?

    We created a purchase order from a blanket and submitted it. The status is Pending Approval instead of Open . PO should have been  Auto Approved as all lines are negotiated. 

    Earlier the functionality was working fine.  Please help to resolve this issue.

    Auto-population of need-by/promise date on PR/PO based on...15.0

    Auto-population of need-by/promise date on PR/PO based on Lead time setup for an item corresponding to ship-to location
    Summary:
    Auto-population of need-by/promise date on PR/PO based on Lead time setup for an item corresponding to ship-to location
    Content:

    Hi,

    Please let me know if there is any workaround or custom solution to achieve the below requirements in Oracle Purchasing Cloud.

    Scenario: Auto-population of need-by/promise date on PR/PO based on Lead time setup for an item corresponding to ship-to location

    Use Cases

    1. Manual Purchase requisition: Requestor selects the ship-to location and Catalogue item, the system automatically populates the need-by date as <SysDate+Lead Time>. This data flows to the PO as Promise Date
    2. Min-Max Planning based Purchase Requisitions: Min-Max planning is run at Org/Sub Inventory level which automatically populates the need-by date as <SysDate+Lead Time>. This data flows to the PO as Promise Date

    As-Is Business Process: Client maintains BPA for each catalogue item with the supplier but doesn’t use ship-to location on the BPA. Lead time is separately managed in custom form for each Item-Ship-to combination. When the user enters PR or min-max planning triggers a PR, customization calculated the need-by date as <SysDate+Lead Time> (as maintained in the mentioned custom form), and populates on PR. This need-by date flows to the PO as the promised date. Buyer can override this date if there are concerns with the promise date from the supplier side.

     

    Why is it critical:

    1. To make sure the right expectations are set up with the requestor about the availability of purchases
    2. To make sure inventory specialists sees correct Supply/Demand picture as promise date is used as supply cut-off date. This helps in avoiding the inventory stock-out situations
    3. To enforce the SLA agreements with vendors, and vendor’s performance can be measured
    4. Extra work to override the populated promise date which will be sysdate if this solution is not in place. Separate communication needs to happen to change this as per SLA agreement which is extra work

    Requirements:

    1. Show end user what is the lead time for that ship-to location for the item?
    2. Auto-populate <SysDate + Lead time> as the promise date on PR/PO. This should be applicable to both manual as well as planning (Min-max) based PR
    3. Supply and Demand report should be able to use the Lead time while calculating the demand/supply based on the cut-off date
    4. Ability to see/review updates on PO promise data by supplier

    1- Where can i find out the menu/page to create relese for Blanket Purchase Agreement?

    2- Usually, releases are available in Purchasing tab in EBS version of ERP. But i do not see it in Fusion. Does this functionaliy change in Fusion?

    3- In case we create a Purchase Order release out of an Agreement then can we match the Invoices to Purchase Order release?

     

    Thank You
