You can add material requirements to discrete jobs and repetitive schedules with statuses of Unreleased, Released, On Hold, and Complete.
Note: You can also add material requirements to jobs and schedules by issuing components not required by the job or
To add or update material requirements Navigate to the Material Requirements window.
You can only select a discrete job or a repetitive line and assembly for a repetitive schedule if the job or schedule has a status of Unreleased, Released, On Hold, or Complete.
1.2. From the Main tabbed region of the Material Requirements region, select the Component to update or add.
You can add items with Push, Assembly Pull, Operation Pull, Bulk, Phantom, and Supplier supply types. If you add Phantom items, their supply types are changed to Push. Supply types are also changed to Push if you add Assembly Pull items to jobs or schedules without bills of material. Similarly, if you add Operation Pull items to jobs or schedules without routings, their supply types are changed to Assembly Pull.
In the case of non–standard discrete jobs, you can add the primary assembly as a component. In other words, the job assembly requires itself. This is useful when you use non–standard jobs to manage rework or disassembly.
2.1. If adding a component, select the Operation Sequence number.
You can only add components at existing operations. The operation sequence identifies where the material is required.
If you add a requirement to a job or schedule without a routing, the system displays 1 as the default operation sequence. This value cannot be updated.
2.2. In the Quantities tabbed region, enter the Per Assembly Quantity or the Required Quantity for the component.
If you are adding a component, the per assembly quantity defaults to 1 and the required quantity is derived from the job or schedule quantity and displayed in the component’s primary UOM. It can be updated. If you update the per assembly quantity, the required quantity is automatically calculated. Conversely if you update the required quantity, the per assembly quantity calculated. You can enter a decimal value, such as 1.25, for both the per assembly and the required quantity. You can also enter a required or per assembly quantity of zero.
2.3. In the Supply tabbed region, select the Supply Type.
When you add components, the supply type specified for the item in Oracle Inventory is normally defaulted. If the item does not have a supply type, the supply type defaults to Push. Supply type selection is restricted based on the type and makeup of the job or schedule. You cannot, for example, change the supply type of a Push component to Assembly Pull if the job or schedule has no routing.
2.4. If the component’s supply type is Assembly Pull or Operation Pull, you must select the Supply Subinventory, and if required by the supply subinventory, the supply Locator.
If a negative quantity for a standard discrete job or repetitive schedule is entered, this check box is disabled. For non standard–jobs with a negative quantity, the MRP check box is enabled. However, Oracle planning nets the negative
requirement as supply rather than demand.
When initially creating non–standard discrete jobs, this flag is unchecked. You must manually mark the check box for components to be considered as demand by Oracle planning applications.
Deleting Material Requirements
You can delete material requirements from Unreleased discrete jobs and repetitive schedules. You cannot delete material requirements that have been issued even if their due quantity is 0. You cannot delete material requirements if any transactions gave been made for a particular component.
1. Navigate to the Material Requirements window.
2. Select the Job or Line and Assembly.
3. If you select a line and assembly, choose the repetitive schedule by selecting the first unit start date of that schedule. If you have selected a discrete job, the system displays the scheduled start date of the job.
4. Choose the Find button to populate the Material Requirements region.
5. In the Material Requirements region, select the Component.
6. Choose Delete Record from the Edit Menu.
7. Save your work.
