Purchase Order Receiving Controls

Use the Receiving Controls window to enter receiving control information for purchase orders and releases. Note that controls you enter here apply to specific purchase orders/releases and override the receiving controls you enter in the Receiving Options window. See: Receiving Controls, Options, and Profiles.

To enter purchase order receiving controls:
Navigate to the Receiving Controls window by clicking Receiving Controls in the Shipments window for purchase orders and in the Releases window for releases.

1. Enter the maximum acceptable number of Days Early and Days Late for receipts.

2. Enter the Action for receipt date control. This field determines how Purchasing handles receipts that are earlier or later than the allowed number of days selected above. Choose one of the following options:
None - Receipts may exceed the allowed days early or late.
Reject - Purchasing does not permit receipts outside the selected number of days early or late.
Warning - Purchasing displays a warning message but permits receipts outside the selected number of days early or late.
Purchasing displays the Last Accept Date, which is the last date when the shipment can be received. This is the promised date plus the number of days late allowed.

3. Enter the maximum acceptable over-receipt Tolerance percent.
Enter the Action for Overreceipt Quantity control. This field determines how Purchasing handles receipts that exceed the quantity received tolerance. Choose one of the following options:
None - Receipts may exceed the selected tolerance.
Reject - Purchasing does not permit receipts that exceed the selected tolerance.
Warning - Purchasing displays a warning message but permits receipts that exceed the selected tolerance.

4. Select Allow Substitute Receipts to indicate that receivers can receive substitute items in place of ordered items. You must define substitute items before you can receive them. See: Defining Item Relationships

5. Enter the default Receipt Routing that you assign goods: Direct Delivery, Inspection Required, or Standard Receipt. You can override this routing during receipt by changing the destination type, if the RCV: Allow Routing Override user profile option is enabled. See: Profile Options in Purchasing.

The Receipt Routing can be set at 5 places:
1) While Creating the Purchase Orders. At shipment level.
2) Item Definition Level.
3) At the Supplier Definition level.
4) Shipping Networks During Inventory Setup.
5) At the Organizational Level. Receipt Options.

Every level overrides the following ones, therefore the Purchase Order level is the highest level and Organization level is the lowest one.

The Receipt Routing Information Provided while Creating the Purchase Order Takes precedence than the other two ways.

There is also a Profile Option :- RCV: Allow Routing Override whose value namely Yes or No indicates whether the receiving routing assigned during requisition or purchase order entry can be overridden at receipt time. This profile is updatable at the site, application, and responsibility, levels.

6. Enter the Enforce Ship To location option to determine whether the receiving location must be the same as the ship-to location. Choose one of the following options:
None - The receiving location may differ from the ship-to location.
Reject - Purchasing does not permit receipts when the receiving location differs from the ship-to location.
Warning - Purchasing displays a warning message but permits receipts when the receiving location differs from the ship-to location.
Select the OK button to apply your entries and return to the original window.
