Product Concept Design
>Concepts can align toward strategy goals like optimal material and development costs, features, roadmap, partnership objectives, and future technology migration.
>Product managers can compare and optimize competing concepts to support product strategy goals, and securely share the results with existing and potential supply chain partners or external design teams.
>Concepts can be traced in detail from ideas and requirements to finished products, for engineering clarifications, process analysis and improvement activities.


Proposals
>A Proposal contains all the business information for the concept. When you create a concept, a proposal of the same name is created; the converse applies as well. You can access a proposal from the Edit Concept screen
>When you delete a proposal, the corresponding concept is also deleted. You cannot delete a concept-proposal pair if the concept is in Submitted or Approved state. Deletion is possible only if both proposal and concept are in Draft state.


Unique feature


Complete Order to Cash can be achieved with Order Management Cloud. An order captured for a standard product with a simple and intuitive user experience that flows seamlessly to inventory fulfillment and then to receivables.


Configured Item Fulfilment
Order Management Cloud has a simple and intuitive user experience for capturing the order that flows seamlessly to manufacturing for fulfillment and then to receivables.


Advanced Item Fulfillment
An order promised directly from a supplier to the customer location with the Purchase Order automatically created in ERP Cloud and sent electronically to the supplier for fulfillment and then to receivables.


Optimize Order Promising
With Oracle Global Order Promising Cloud Service, an optional component for Oracle Order Management Cloud Service, users can make optimal product availability commitments, taking advantage of all available supply, to increase revenues and customer satisfaction while reducing fulfillment costs. Global Order Promising Cloud Service collects key supply information and applies user-definable sourcing and promising rules to select the best availability options for the customer and for the enterprise. Promising options include: Lead-time based, Available to Promise, Capable to Promise, and Profitable to Promise. Allocation by demand class ensures that scarce supply is reserved for the most important customers.
Order promising capabilities also help to manage supply and demand jeopardy conditions during order processing. Users can view exceptions, drill into the details, view alternate availability options, and perform what-if simulation using embedded analytics to make tradeoffs between service levels and costs, or between competing customer orders. Global Order Promising Cloud Service’s advanced memory-resident architecture ensures that the order promising capability is available 24x7, even as its transaction and reference data are being refreshed.


Execute Against Predictable Order Orchestration Policies
Using a robust set of pre-built application capabilities, business users can define, implement and maintain their own fulfillment orchestration policies without the need to resort to technical programming tools. During the process definition phase, the change order logic is defined within the process itself as opposed to writing/testing separate processes for each specific change order scenario. For example, if the fulfillment process includes schedule/ship/bill steps and is on the ship step when a customer changes the quantity, the change order logic will cancel the original request to shipping and roll back the process to begin at the ‘schedule’ step. In addition, as an order is processed, users can define how long each step in the process should take so proactive alerts are created when a specific promise to a customer may be behind schedule. Selection of which policy to be used is also configurable and flexible. This flexible architecture enables organizations to construct, implement and adjust policies as needed. This results in faster deployments and lower overall costs.


 Monitor and Manage Exceptions
Order Management Cloud Service provides a centralized view to orders, allowing users to search for orders, view statues, see a summary of exceptions by customer, product, or supplier, and to drill into the data to view additional details. Jeopardy alerts proactively identify orders that may not meet promise dates, allowing organizations to identify issues in time to take high-quality corrective actions. This is all supported by in-context embedded analytics to provide the user with the right insights to make the best possible decision.




Enable Quote-to-Cash
Oracle Order Management Cloud Service is an application that enables organizations to accurately and efficiently manage customer orders across the quote-to-cash process. It is pre-integrated with Oracle CPQ Cloud Service (Configure, Price and Quote), Inventory Cloud Service and Financials Cloud Service to provide seamless order processing for standard items, configured items and recurring services. It collects orders from Oracle CPQ Cloud, converts and stores them in a standard format, distributes them to Inventory and Financials Cloud, receives fulfillment status updates, and coordinates status updates back to CPQ Cloud.

Detailed Serial and Lot Tracking Integrated Planning
Through Order management cloud can plan proper Serial or Lot control item fulfillment Planning


Monitor Pick Waves Work Area
>Assess pending work from the list of open pick slips and picks
>Assess outstanding and completed work for today
>View and assess open picks by source subinventory
>Assess progress on outbound pick slips and pick waves
>Assess progress on shipment lines based on status
>Assess pending work from the list of requisition pick slips
>Assess pending work from the list of replenishment pick slips


Create Pick Wave
> Specify a release rule, or alternatively enter demand selection, fulfillment, and processing criteria
> Release the pick wave immediately
> Add the pick wave to the release schedule


Schedule Pick Wave
>Specify the release criteria for a pick wave
>Schedule how frequently you want pick waves to be created
>Specify whether the output should be printed, and determine the format and layout of the output
>Specify whether you want to be notified after a pick wave is created


Monitor Pick Slips Work Area
The Pick Slips work area provides a list of open pick slips. The default view shows the open pick slips of all types that are due today so that you can focus on the current day's pick slip work.


Monitor Shipments Work Area
> Filter your view based on due date and organization
> Drill down to view details and perform tasks such as pick release, ship confirm, and record shipping costs
> Log and resolve shipping exceptions


Manage Outbound Shipments
A shipment comprises a set of shipment lines, grouped by certain common shipping attributes, that are scheduled to be shipped to a customer's ship-to location on a specific date and time. You can include items from different sales orders in a shipment. You can either manually or automatically group shipment lines to create a shipment. The shipment lines are grouped by the mandatory default criteria: ship-from location and ship-to location. However, you may also include additional grouping criteria, such as customer, freight terms, FOB (Free on board), and shipping method.


Corrections to Return to Supplier Transactions With Shipping Documents
You can make corrections to return to supplier transactions. The corrections are reflected on shipping documents up until the returned products are shipped within the Shipping application. If you make corrections after the products are shipped, the changes are still accepted in Receiving. Receiving maintains automated interfaces with Oracle Fusion Payables, Oracle Fusion Cost Management, and Oracle Fusion Purchasing to share the corrected quantity information. The table below explains when changes are allowed within the Shipping application based on the type of correction to the return to supplier transaction and the associated shipment status.


Review Shipping Exceptions
> Define and maintain the three types of shipping exceptions
> View and modify predefined exceptions
> Modify severity levels of exceptions


Reserve Inventory
A reservation links a supply source (such as on-hand inventory or a purchase order) to a demand source (such as an account, cycle count, or user-defined demand source), and guarantees allotment of material to the demand source. You can reserve material at the subinventory, locator, and if applicable, lot and serial number level.


Inventory Pick
A pick is a manually- or automatically-created suggestion to honor a reservation when on-hand inventory is available. Picks can be created for material at the subinventory, locator, lot and serial number levels.


Cycle count reservation
> A cycle count reservation is a reservation with the demand document type of cycle count.
> You can create a cycle count reservation if, during picking or shipping, you have determined missing material and you want to ensure that no one else tries to use or pick the missing material. Cycle count reservations are deleted when you perform a cycle count of the item in the specified location.


Creation of subledger account rules and subledger journal entry rule sets for receipt accounting
>Create your subledger account rules on the Manage Account Rules page. It is recommended that you highlight the account rules predefined by Oracle, copy, and modify them as needed.
>Create your subledger journal entry rule sets on the Manage Subledger Journal Entry Rule Sets page. It is recommended that you highlight the journal entry rule sets predefined by Oracle, copy, and modify them as needed. For each journal line rule specify the copied account combination rule.
>Access both the Manage Account Rules page and Manage Subledger Journal Entry Rule Sets page from an Oracle Fusion Applications Functional Setup Manager implementation project.
>Note:You must customize the predefined account rules and journal entry rule sets before proceeding with the setup of subledger accounting rules for receipt accounting.


Use an existing cost or cost estimate to create a new cost estimate
On the Manage Cost Estimates page by selecting a existing record you can copy an existing cost estimate, or a standard cost, actual cost, or perpetual average cost, into a new cost estimate.


Submit for processing several standard cost requests at a time
You can submit for processing several requests at a time, and a request can include several items, provided they belong to the same planning cost organization.


Standard Cost Planning Process
Standard costs are one of the cost methods available to budget, simulate, or process accounting distributions for inventory transactions. Because a standard cost is, by definition, an estimate of the cost of an item, you will need to monitor costs and variances, and update standard costs periodically, to ensure that they remain close to actual costs.


Manage Cost Accounting business process
The Manage Cost Accounting business process is used by cost accountants to calculate inventory transaction costs, maintain inventory valuation, generate accounting distributions for inventory transactions, analyze product costs, analyze usage of working capital for inventory, and analyze gross margins.


Tax point basis
>A point in the receipt transaction process where taxes are accounted and reported to the tax authorities. These can be classified into two categories: delivery-based and invoice-based tax points.
>Delivery-based taxes are accounted and reported on the receipt transaction. Invoice-based taxes are accounted and reported when the supplier invoice is created, accounted, or paid.
