Oracle Move Order Transactions

What is a Move Order transaction?
Move Order is a request for a subinventory transfer or an account issue also known as an account transfer. Move Orders allow planners and facility managers to request the movement of material within the warehouse or facility for replenishment, material storage relocations and quality handling, etc.For all Move Orders the final result will be one of two supported transactions:  subinventory or account transfer. Subinventory transfer transactions may still be initiated without utilizing the Move Order function if desired. 

What Move Order source types are available?
There are three Move Order source types:

A. Move Order Requisition
Generated by:
* Manually generated request inside Inventory
Navigation Inventory->Transactions->Move Orders

The requisition is a manually generated request for a Move Order. May optionally utilize the approval processing - the requisition can optionally go through an Oracle Workflow approval process before it becomes a Move Order. If no approval process is used, the requisition becomes a move  order immediately.

B. Replenishment Move Order
Generated by:
* Kanban Cards when pull sequence calls for subinventory transfer (intra-org Kanbans)
* Min Max Planning Report planned at the Subinventory Level
* Replenishment Counts

Replenishment Move Orders are pre-approved and ready to be transacted.

C. Wave Pick Move Order
Generated by:
* Sales Order picking
* Internal Sales Order picking

The Order Management pick release process generates move orders to bring material from its source location in Inventory to a staging location, which is defined as a subinventory. In other words, a subinventory transfer.

Wave Pick Move Orders are pre-approved and ready to transact. Pick slips can also be generated for these Move Orders from Inventory with the release of the Oracle Order Management module.

What are the components of a Move Order?
The Move Order has three components:

*Move Order Header: Order Type Default Source, Order Number Default Destination

* Move Order Lines: Item Source Project/Task Destination           
Request Qty Completed Qty

* Move Order Line Detail: Item Destination Details, Lot/Serial/Locator, Quantity/UOM, Source Details

Move Order Header - Oracle inventory uses the Move Order header to store the Move Order source type which refers to the entity that created the Move Order.  An Order could be a pick wave, sales order pick, a replenishment type (Kanban, Min-Max, Replenishment Count) or a requisition. The Move Order header also stores the default source and destination location in the event of a subinventory transfer, or an account in the event of an account transfer. The header also  stores the Move Order number and the requested date.

Move Order Lines - Move Order Lines are the requests on a Move Order. They store the item, requested quantity, completed quantity (for partially fulfilled Move Order), a source and destination if known. The Move Order lines also include any project and task references, if the organization is project manufacturing enabled.

Move Order Lines Details - Move Order Lines Details contain the information necessary to fulfill a particular request line. For instance, the material locator, lot or serial control information will be contained at the line detail level. These details are automatically populated by Oracle Inventory when picking rules and item transaction defaults for destination locators have been setup, or the user can manually fill in the details. It is highly recommended that the item transaction defaults feature be set up in:
Inventory->Setup->Transactions->Item Transaction Defaults 

What is the basic process flow of a Move Order Requisition?
The Move Order process deploys the following steps:

* Create the Move Order for required material. You can manually create the requisition or it may be automatically generated at Pick Release, Kanban Replenishment, Min-Max or Replenishment Count reports.

* Approve the Move Order if required. There is a seeded Oracle Workflow for Move Order Approvals. If approval is required then the Item Planner must approve the Move Order Lines. All automatically generated Move Orders are created with an automatic approval. If you do not desire to require approvals in your Inventory Organization for manual Move Order Requisitions then you must set your Time Out period parameter to '0' and the Time-Out 
Action parameter to 'Approve'.
Navigation: Inventory->Setup->Organizations->Parameters
Choose the Inventory Parameters Tab.

* Detail the Move Order. Detailing is the process that uses Oracle Inventory  picking rules to determine where to source the material to fulfill a request line. The detailing process fills in the Move Order Line Details with the actual transactions to be performed and allocates the material to the Move Order. You should not detail a Move Order too soon in the business process because the detailing process for a Move Order creates pending transactions and removes that quantity from an availability picture. Detailing should not be done until you are ready to print a pick slip and actually move the material.

* Print a pick slip if desired or push the Move Order Line Details to mobile
devices for transaction through the Move Order API - Move Orders

* You are now ready to transact the Move Order. You can transact all the order
lines at once or one detail line at a time as the items are moved. If you
transact less than the requested quantity, the Move Order will stay open
until the total quantity is transacted, or the Move Order is closed
or canceled.
