1.1 Billing Type Codes

Every item to be processed using Charges must be set up in Inventory as a Material, Labor, or Expense  (MLE) item. This means every item in Oracle Applications that may need repair must be set up as a Charges MLE item.
Billing Categories classify Billing Types into Material, Labor, and Expense. Each serviceable item in Inventory is classified using Billing Type Codes associated to a  Billing Category.

A Service Activity Code is a type of action to be performed, for example, replace, return, install, drain, fill. The combination of Billing Type and Service Activity defines the Order Type for a given operating unit. It also provides the basis upon which discounts for a Service Contract can be applied.
