You can complete assemblies from Discrete jobs and Repetitive schedules into inventory, and you can return completed assemblies from inventory to jobs and repetitive schedules. You also can complete a greater quantity than the job or schedule start quantity (over–complete) into inventory, as long as it is within the tolerance level set. Further, on Repetitive schedules and non–standard Discrete jobs, you also can return more assemblies than were completed.
Assemblies can be completed and returned using the Completion Transactions and the Move Transactions windows. You can also import assembly completion and return transactions through the Inventory Transaction Interface in Oracle Inventory.
Completing assemblies from a job or schedule with a routing reduces the assembly quantity in the To move intraoperation step of the last operation sequence and increases the job or schedule completed quantity.
Returning assemblies to a job or schedule with a routing, increases the assembly quantity in the To move intraoperation step of the last operation sequence and decreases the job or schedule complete quantity.
Alternate Units of Measure
You can complete and return assemblies in their alternate unit of measure. If you enter an alternate unit of measure for the item, the transaction quantity is converted using the conversion information you specified when you defined the unit of measure in Oracle Inventory.
You can change this quantity if desired.
Lot and Serial Number Control
You must assign a lot or serial number if the assembly is under lot, serial number, or lot and serial number control. For discrete jobs, the lot number you specified when you defined the job as the default displays.
If you are completing assemblies that have lot controlled Assembly Pull components and the WIP Backflush Lot Selection parameter is set to Manual, you must manually select which lots to backflush. If you are completing assemblies that have serial controlled or lot and serial controlled components, you must manually select which lots and/or serial numbers to backflush.
When you complete assemblies under revision control, the revision defaults based on the assembly revision of the job or repetitive schedule. For assemblies under revision control, the bill revision is completed from the job or the earliest released repetitive schedule. If there is no bill revision on the job or repetitive schedule, but the assembly is under revision control, the assemblies’ current revision is completed as defined in Oracle Inventory.
Completion Subinventory and Locator
When you complete assemblies, the completion subinventory defaults from the job or repetitive line/assembly association. For subassemblies, the completion subinventory can be the supply subinventory for higher level assemblies, for final assemblies or finished goods the completion subinventory can be finished goods inventory. You can change the default completion subinventory as you complete assemblies.
If you have set your organization, subinventory, or item controls to require locators, you must also enter locator as you complete assemblies.
Final Assembly Orders Completion
Reservations are automatically transferred from the job to the subinventory and locator as you complete assemblies from final assembly orders. Reservations are automatically transferred based on sales order line delivery due dates. You can override the automatic transfer. When assemblies are returned to a final assembly order, you must enter the sales order line and delivery information so that the system knows which specific reservations to transfer back from inventory.
Completions into License Plate Numbers
If Oracle Warehouse Management is installed, you can use License Plate Number functionality for tracking completions. License plate numbers are unique identifiers for containers in the supply chain. You can perform assembly completions and work order–less completions into license plate numbers. Multi–level nesting enables containers to be packed within another container.. The container’s genealogy provides content and transaction history for each license plate.
Note: LPN completions are supported only in standard cost organizations
Label Printing at Completion
Label printing capabilities are available at the time of completion in the Completion Transactions and Work Order–less Completions windows.
This functionality enables you to create labels for shipping, order management, manufacturing, and other types of information. Labels are created by selecting a format type and setup in Oracle Inventory – and using a third–party label printing system. If Oracle Warehouse Management is installed, you can set up compliance labeling using bar
code specifications and symbol content. This creates customer specific labels to comply with your customer’s requirements.
If collection plans exist for the line operation, you can enter quality data within the Flow Workstation, and print labels for the quality plan at the first operation or subsequent operations.
