    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.

    Anil

    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

    Can Supplier Portal Page be Customized With DFF's From...5

    Can Supplier Portal Page be Customized With DFF's From Purchase Order?
    Summary:
    Can Supplier Portal Page be Customized With DFF's From Purchase Order?
    Content:

    I want to be able to create a Purchase Order DFF and see that information in Supplier Portal.

    I read the note in Oracle support: Can Supplier Portal Page be Customized With DFF's From Purchase Order? (Doc id 2411317.1), and it is not clear for me.

    in the note said: a) it is not possible to customize the Supplier Portal page. b) PO page can be customized so that the DFF’s are only visible to someone having the Buyer Role. This will then dictate the same DFF visibility on the Supplier Portal page. To do this, create a custom expression at PO line level and stipulate the DFF’s visibility only when user has Employee role.

    I don't understand this because Suppliers will not have the Buyer Role. So it is not clear for me.

    Did someone had this requirement before?

    Cloud R13: Supplier Performance Is Not Showing Any Data6

    Cloud R13: Supplier Performance Is Not Showing Any Data
    Content:

    Hello,

     

    We are not able to see 'Supplier Performance' dashboard.
    After checking with Oracle support we came to know that - Dashboard and reports were based on data warehousing BI product (OBIA).
    At this time, Oracle can only report on transactional data in the cloud. As a result, Oracle has removed the supplier performance dashboard and reports.

    Oracle does have some infolets that might help in this area such as the Overdue Schedules infolet or the Open Orders/Open Schedules infolets.

    Is anybody else is facing the same issue?
    Do you have any workaround for this?
    Are you using any other reports which can fulfill this requirement?

    Hello Team

    We intend to disable all personal mailboxes of our team and have use only the functionalities of Oracle platform from where we can send emails to suppliers and internal Vendor Management Team. 

    This would give opportunity for us to know the status of each of the Contracts / Purchase Requisitions / Purchase Orders inside Oracle Fusion itself. At the same time, we intend to have better control on the Supplier Negotiations.

    How to write approval rules for “Outside Processing Purchase Order” through BPM?
    Content:

    Hi all,

    When we are releasing the work order our requisitions are auto approving and POs are getting created automatically. As per the Oracle, we can't control the approvals of PR so we want to enable the approval flow for the purchase orders(OSP orders). If anyone has any idea on how to create a BPM rule for these kinds of POs please let me know.
