OM Standard Orders Flow
Normally standard sales order can be split into sub steps. This jointly carried out by some modules like INV, OM, Pricing, Shipping and AR. Lets take each sub steps with data flow conditions. These are based out of the flow which is available in 184.108.40.206!!!!!.
1. Order Entry:
This is first stage when Order in enter in system. When the order is entered it basically create a record in order headers and Order Lines table.
· Oe_order_headers_all ( flow_status_code as entered)
· Oe_oreder_lines_all ( flow_status_code as entered)( Order number is generated.
2. Order Booking:
This is next stage, when Order which is entered in step1 is booked and flow status changed from entered to Booked. At this stage these table get affected.
· Oe_order_headers_all (flow_status_code as booked, booked_flag updated).
· Oe_order_lines_all (flow_status_code as awaiting shipping, booked_flag updated).
· wsh_new_deliverries ( status_code OP open).
· Wsh_delivery_details ( released_status ‘R’ ready to release).
Same time, Demand Interface program runs in back ground and insert into inventory tables mtl_demand.
This step is required for doing reservations SHCEDULE ORDER PROGRAM runs in the background and quantities are reserved .Once this program get successfully get completed, the mtl_reservations table get updated.
4. Pick Release :
Ideally pick release is the process which is defined in which the items on the sales order are taken out from inventory.
Normally pick release SRS program runs in background. Once the program get completed these are the table get affected.
· Oe_order_lines_all (flow_status_code ‘PICKED’)
· wsh_delivery_details ( released_status ‘S’ ‘submitted for release’)
· mtl_txn_request_lines ( move order tables , Here request is generated to move item from saleable to staging sub inventory).
· Mtl_material_transactions_temp ( link to above tables through move_order_header_id/line_id.
5. Pick Confirm :
Items are transferred from saleble to staging Sub inventory
· Wsh_delivery_details (released_status ‘Y’ ‘Released’).
6. Ship Confirm :
Here ship confirm Interface program runs in background. Data removed from wsh_new_deliverries.
· Oe_order_line_all ( flow_status_code ‘Shipped’)
· wsh_delivery_details ( released_status ‘C’ ‘Shipped’)
· mtl_material_transactions ( linked through Transaction source header id)
· Data deleted frommtl_demand,mtl_reservations
· Item deducted from mtl_onhand_quatnities.
7. Enter invoice :
This is also called Receivable interface, that mean Information moved to accounting area for invoicing details.
· Invoicing workflow activity transfers shipped item information to Oracle Reveivables.
· Ra_interface_lines_all (interface table into which the data is transferred fromorder management) T.
· Then Auto Invoice Program Imports data from this
· Table which get affected into this stage are receivables base table.
o Ra_customer_trx_all (cust_trx_id is primary key to link it to trx_lines tables and trx_number is invoice number).
o Ra_customer_trx_lines_all (line_number_1 and line_attribute_6 are linked to header_id ( or order_number) and line_id of the orders).
8. Complete Line :
This is stage order line level table get updated with Flow status and Open flag.
· Oe_order_lines_all (flow_status_code ‘Shipped’, open_flag’N’).
9. Close Order :
This is last step of Order Processing. In this stage only oe_order_lines_all table get updated.
These are the table get affected in this step.
· Oe_order_lines_all (flow_status_code ‘Closed’, open_flag ‘N’).
These are the typically data flow of a order to cash model for a standard order.
Understand “ Drop Shipment” in Order Management?
Order Management allows you to enter drop-shipment sales orders as well as standard sales orders.
Items means you can receive orders for items that you do not stock or for which you lack sufficient inventory, and have a supplier provide the items directly to your customer.
These are the following activity takes place when you have drop shipment
o Warehouse Item
o Ship Order
o Shipment notification
· Order Entry
o Enter Customer
o Enter Order
o Demand Order (optional)
o Cancel Order ( Optional)
o Close Order
o Create and send Purchase Order
o Enter Shipment notification in system
o Create invoice
o Collection of payments
Hence ,drop ship order items ship directly from a supplier to the customer of the order processing company. A purchase requisition then a purchase order, is generated to notify the supplier ships the order , it notifies purchasing to enter this information in the purchasing module.
What are the advantages of Drop Shipment Orders?
These are the benefits:
· No inventory is required
· Reduced order fulfillment processing costs
· Reduced flow times
· Elimination of losses on non-sellable goods
· Elimination of packing and shipping costs
· Reduced inventory space requirements
· Reduced shipping time to your customer
· Allows you to offer a variety of products to your customers
How to understand the dataflow for Drop Shipment Orders?
To understand, here are the processes divided in sub process and the underline activity is highlighted here:
Here are the Details as per Mark.
1. Order Entry:
Here the activity is entering process where oe_order_headers_all ( flow_status_coder as entered) oe_order_lines_all. The order is booked as DROP SHIP.
2. Order Booking:
3. The Purchase program passes information about eligible drop-ship order lines to Oracle Purcahsing. The interface table which gets populated is po_requistions_interface_all
4. After Purchasing Release has completed successfully, run Requisition Import I Oracle Purcahsing to generate purchase requisitions for the processed order lines. The Requisition Import program reads the table po_requisitions_interface_all validates your data, dervies or defaults additional information and writes as error message for every validation that fails into the po__interface_errors table. The validated data is then inserted into the requisition base tables.
5. po_requistion_headers_all, po_requisition_lines_all,po_requistion_distributions_all. Then use Auto create PO functionality to create purchase orders and then perform receipts against these purchase orders.
6. After the good are successfully received invoices for vendors are created in accounts payables as in normal purchase orders.
7. Invoices are generated for customers In Accounts receivables.
8. oe_order_lines_all ( flow_status_code ‘ Shipped’ Open_flag “N” ).
9. oe_order_lines_all ( flow_status_code ‘Closed’ Open_flag “N” ).
Very common thing, people get confuse why such type of naming convention oracle have used. Here is note for some of them.
· _ALL :
Table holds all the information about different operating units. Multi-Org environment. You can also set the client_info to specific operating units to see the data specific to that operating units only
· _TL :
These are tables corresponding to another table with the same name minus the _TL. These tables provide multiple language support . For each item in the table without _TL there can be many rows in the _TL table ,but all with different values in the LANGUAGE column.
· _B :
These are the BASE tables. They are very important and the data is stored in the table with all validations. It is supposed that these table will always contain the perfect format data. If anything happens to the BASE table data ,then it is a data corruption issue.
· _F :
These are date Tracked Tables , which occur in HR and Payroll . For these there are TWO date columns EFFECTIVE_START_DATE and EFFECTIVE_END_DATE which together with the PK identifies a row uniquely .The Date intervals can not overlap. Many think they are Secured date guess someone from Oracle Confirms.
· _V : Tables are the Views created on base tables.
· _VL : are views for multi language tables which combines the row of the base table with the corresponding row of the _TL table where the LANGUAGE = USERENV(‘LANG’).
· _S : are sequences, used for finding new values for the primary key of a table .
· _A : are Audit Shadow Tables.
· _AVN and _ACN : are Audit Shadow Views ( when data was changed, and with what values)
