    You can add optional operations (uncheck the Count Point and Automatically Transact flags) between the 4th and 5th operation; also add components/resources to the optional operations. you cannot execute  the optional operation, but manually issue materials and charge the resources associated with the optional operations.

    Let me know if you need any other details.

    Thanks - Radha

    Does Cloud Pricing support Intercompany Transfer Pricing for Bill Only that does not involve Internal Sales Orders. I only see references to Manage SFO Transfer Price which is Cost/Price markup/down. We are looking for complex intercompany transfer pricing algorithm solution that does not include Internal Sales Orders or Internal Requisitions, more specifically we are Invoice Only - no shipping.

    Thank you.

    Based on the business use case provided, Contract Manufacturing seem to be the right fit. Following are the details on how the solution can be modeled and couple of options on how OEM supplied Item (Company C supplied item to Supplier B) can be handled.

    • Define Supplier B as one of the Inventory Org within Company C and mark it as Contract Manufacturing enabled
    • Define Item A as planned Buy Item that needs to be procured from Supplier A
    • Define Item B as planned Make Item which is the finished goods delivered by Supplier B (Contract Manufacturer)
    • Define Item BS a service item to pay the service (value addition) charges to Supplier B
    • Make Item A as Company C supplied item to Supplier B
    • Include Item A in the BOM for Item B and also Item BS (service Item). Standard CM setup steps recommended for CM flow need to be followed.
    • Based on the customer business model, enter a sales order or upload forecast for Item B and run the supply chain plan to generate planned orders
    • There will be supply recommendation to create a CM work order in Org Supplier B. This in turn will generate a planned order for Item A by Planning in Org Supplier B. There are couple of options on how Company C can deliver Item A to Supplier B

              Option 1:

    • The PO created for Item A will have the delivery location as Org Supplier B (which is a logical Org) and will be delivered to Supplier B. But, the receipt of this PO needs to be initiated either manually by Company C or via a ASN by Supplier A. We may need to work out more details if required with Procurement team as this is not a tested use case with our existing Contract Manufacturing solution.

              Option 2:

    • The PO created for Item A can be received into Company C’s internal warehouse first and then transfer the same to Supplier B using Transfer Order. This is already a supported flow in the current Contract Manufacturing flow.

              Option 3:​

    • If the customer do not want to create PO for Item A every time a demand  is received for Item B, they can even pre-position Item A with Supplier B by means of Min-Max Planning which will procure from Supplier A and will stock it in bulk with Supplier B and they will report the consumption to Company C as and when they consume Item A. This is also a supported flow in the current Contract Manufacturing flow.

    Thanks Ashish.

    To enable this feature, do we need any setups. There is a check box in Manage Plant Parameters, under work execution there is checkbox 'Allow direct purchases for work orders'. I enabled it, but at requisition I couldn't find destination type as 'work order' to link the work order.



  • Ashish Pachauri

    Hi Sudharsan,

    Yes, you can create Requisition to procure material for the work order. This feature is available since 19A and you can find more details in links given below. Check topic "Manually Procure Materials for Work Orders ".

    No. It should not be lot or serial controlled. 




  • VJ

    We have a similar requirement

    Company 'C' creates a PO to procure item 'X' from Supplier A

    Supplier A ships item X to another supplier B (Note: Inventory valuation at this point is with Company 'C')

    Supplier B adds value to this item and the FG is received into warehouse.

    --- We are contemplating on using either

    > Contract Mfg or

    > OSP or

    > using PO for supplier A, Receiving into supplier B (assuming B will be setup as a logical org) and then finally create Tr. Order to ship from supplier B to warehouse

    Need to understand if there are pros/ cons on these options.


  • Dev Thota

    This is an OSP item and I believe we should be able to generate lot for this.

  • Kalyanakrishnan Parameswaran


    Is this a direct procurred item? At present only plain components are supported for direct procurement

    Question for the session: what is the roadmap for seamless integration with logfire (oracle Cloud WMS).

    1. end to end seamless integration

    2. specific to serial numbers.




  • Alexander Vaidhyan

    Hello Sam,

    This is already supported. If you need to send only work order header, so that the system will do the work definition selection, explosion and scheduling, then you may populate the required fields in the work order header only of the xlsm template and by setting the following attributes:

    Allow Explosion = Y

    Scheduling Method = DEFAULT_SCHEDULER

    I tested the FBDI functionality, but found that it was a little difficult to use. The use case was that we need to create about 50 similar work orders on mass. Only the item number will be different. Since there's no copy function, an upload was the next best option.. 

    If create a work order manually, I only need to enter the item, quantity and start date. The system will then find the latest work definition and automatically populate the operations and materials. However, if I load through FBDI, I need to populate all the operations and materials tables in the spreadsheet. This was not deemed practical for our use case. The user will need to find and export all this data. 

    My question is, is there any thoughts to make this simpler, whereby the user can just enter some work order header details and the system gets the operations and materials information from the work definition?

    Hi Dev,
    Please post this to the Product Master Data Management forum. They should be able to assist you.

    We are able to hide "Release and Pick Materials" but are unable to hide "Release" and "Mass Actions".

    Please review the attached screenshot.

    Hi Dev

    Page Composer customization changes will be applied at “SITE” level. Currently, we don’t support user level or job role level customization in MFG.

    However, there is a possible workaround for this. We can use EL to conditionally set “Visible” property based on a custom role.

    Pl check this recording:


    The high level implementation steps are:

    1) Created a custom role with code “XXX_CUSTOM_PAGE_COMP”

    2) Use page composer to modify the “Visible” attribute of the button using following EL expression:


    3) If user is assigned with the role ‘XXX_CUSTOM_PAGE_COMP’, then the button will be visible. User without role ‘XXX_CUSTOM_PAGE_COMP’ won’t be able to see the button
