Overview of Pricing in the Order to Cash Process

Overview of Pricing in the Order to Cash Process


The ordering process leads to:
Shipping of goods
Invoicing of customer
Receipt of cash and reconciling of the bank statement
In Order Management the pricing engine prices the items after the order is entered or booked
(depending on the pricing setup). Once the order is booked, it proceeds through the workflow
process. If it is a shipping item and the quantities are available, the order is processed by
Shipping Execution. During shipping, the freight and special charges can be calculated and the
price of the item is adjusted accordingly.

Overview of Pricing Concepts

Overview of Pricing Concepts


The pricing engine determines the selling price for products and services. It provides the final
selling price after retrieving the initial price from the price list or customer agreement. If this
order qualifies for any increases or decreases from the initial price, adjustments called
modifiers are applied to the price.

Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Basic Pricing Setup


Chapter 8 - Page 8

Overview of Pricing Concepts

Overview of Pricing Concepts (cont.)


When the sales order is entered, the pricing engine is called and reads the relevant price list or
pricing agreement. The appropriate modifiers are then applied to the base price and the final
selling price is sent to the sales order line or the calling application. The Adjustments window
displays the original price, applied modifiers, and the final price.

Overview of the Pricing Engine

Overview of the Pricing Engine


The pricing engine, which consists of a search engine and a calculation engine, works through
open APIs to provide the pricing results to the calling application. From the pricing request, the
pricing engine evaluates the appropriate modifiers and price lists, resolves incompatibility
issues, retrieves the list price, and calculates the unit selling price and adjustments. The search
engine receives pricing information from entities like price lists, modifiers, qualifiers,
formulas, products, and pricing attributes.

Overview of Pricing Security

Overview of Pricing Security


In Oracle Applications, the basic level of security called functional security is implemented to
control users access to different windows, controls, and reports in the application.
Additionally, Basic Pricing has its own security setup called pricing security that works along
with functional security to provide a secure environment where the user can view, update, or
add pricing entities within a framework of authorizations and permissions. Pricing entities are
price lists, modifiers, and agreements. You can set up pricing security if you have the Oracle
Pricing Administrator responsibility.
Using pricing security, you can assign pricing entities to operating units, assign privileges, and
set security rules for pricing entities.

Overview of Price Lists

Overview of Price Lists


A price list is useful for maintaining the prices and other pricing details of products and
services. It serves as a repository of items with their related pricing details. You can retrieve a
price list and add/edit/delete related items and item categories. You can also use the price list to
define attributes for the products that determine the pricing action.
An item should have a price when it is entered on a sales order line. Once the pricing engine
populates the Unit Price field by deriving the price from the appropriate price list, the order can
be booked.
The header region of the price list consists of fields to store the price list name, the effective
dates of the price list, currency, multi-currency conversion, pricing controls, rounding factor,
and shipping defaults like freight terms and freight carriers.
You can enter one or more pricing lines to the price list. However you may add only one
secondary price list. Pricing attributes can also be used to determine the price in the price list.

Overview of Price Lists

Overview of Price Lists (cont.)


You can create as many price lists as needed by entering the information or copying existing
price lists. The price lists can be modified to include new items or groups of items. The list
price of the price list lines can be increased or decreased by either an amount or a percentage.

Overview of Pricing Agreements

Overview of Pricing Agreements


Oracle Pricing enables you to establish agreements with your customers, where you can define
prices, payment terms, and freight terms for items. Two types of agreements can be created:
Standard Agreements or Pricing Agreements.
Standard Agreements use standard price lists. Standard Agreements can be generic or
specific to a customer or customer family.
Pricing Agreements use Agreement Price Lists. These price lists are set up and maintained
through the Agreements window. Special terms and conditions can also be specified in the
Pricing Agreement that can then be defaulted in the sales order.

Chapter 8 - Page 14

Overview of Formulas

Overview of Formulas
You can define prices as constant values or create formulas to provide pricing flexibility and
the ability to carry out complex computations. Some of the formulas that are created are based
on the following formula component types:
Factor List: You can apply different factor values for varying item attributes
Numeric Constant: Numeric value
Pricing Context: Grouping of pricing attributes, of which a maximum of 100 can be
incorporated in the formula
Product Context: Which contains only one attribute, item
You can create formulas in the Pricing Formulas window.
Basic Pricing provides seeded formulas, such as the Freight and Special Charges Formulas,
which includes the Cost to Charge Conversion formula and Cost to Charge Markup formula.
These formulas convert freight costs to freight charges.

Overview of Qualifiers

Overview of Qualifiers
A qualifier defines eligibility rules for modifiers and price lists. A qualifier can be a customer
name, a customer class, an order type, or an order amount that can span orders.
Though a qualifier may be set up independently, it comes into effect only when linked to a
modifier or a price list. Thus, the modifier that is set up and linked to a qualifier determines
who the price adjustment will affect as well as the amount that will change.
You can create qualifier groups to apply individual qualifiers as a set. When you group
qualifiers, they become a set, which allows for faster searching and setup.

Chapter 8 - Page 16

Overview of Modifiers

Overview of Modifiers
Modifiers determine the adjustments made to the list price. These are dependant on various
business factors such as the type of adjustments to make, the level at which the adjustments are
made, how the modifiers are qualified, how they are applied, etc. You can create three modifier
list types in Oracle Pricing:
Discount List
Surcharge List
Freight and Special Charge List
Modifier Line Types
The following modifier line types are available in Oracle Pricing:
Discount
Surcharge
Freight and Special Charges: Amount applied to the customer invoice for movement of a
shipment to a destination
Price Break: Only point price breaks are allowed in Basic Pricing modifiers. For example,
the following pricing decisions are:
Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Basic Pricing Setup


Chapter 8 - Page 17

If Item Quantity = 0-50, then discount = 5%


If Item Quantity = 50-100, then discount = 7%
If Item Quantity is between 100 and 99999999999, then discount = 10%.
So if the ordered item quantity is 110, then the discount applicable is 10%.
Types of Modifier Controls
A pricing event is a time in the process flow of the calling application at which it makes a call
to the pricing engine (analogous to an Oracle Workflow event); for example, Book Order in
Order Management.
A pricing phase is a user-defined group of modifiers that the search engine considers together
when applying them to pricing requests, for example, Phase 1: Line Adjustments.
Incompatibility: In any given level within the same phase, the system only allows one modifier
to be selected. The pricing engine may retrieve more than one modifier that meets the calling
request and can be applied. There are three methods to resolve incompatibilities within the
modifiers that the pricing engine retrieves:
Precedence
Best price
Exclusivity
Incompatibility Level: Each modifier has an incompatibility level. If there is more than
one modifier line with the same incompatibility level, the pricing engine selects the one
with the highest precedence. If there is more than one modifier with the highest
precedence in an incompatibility level, the pricing engine selects the modifier that
provides the best benefit to the customer.
In Basic Pricing, users cannot add additional phases or events, and incompatibility level and
buckets are defaulted.

Overview of Contexts and Attributes

Overview of Contexts and Attributes


There are three types of pricing contexts or groups in Basic Pricing:
Product
Pricing
Qualifier
Attributes are fields in the Standard or Quick Sales Orders window that can be used to
determine the price of an item. A context is comprised of a grouping of attributes. However,
the product context type has only one contextitem.
Through attribute management, the pricing engine evaluates all the values defined in the
qualifier and pricing attributes. Basic Pricing allows the creation and linking of only Pricing
contexts with a maximum of 100 attributes or less.

Overview of Freight and Special Charges Modifiers

Overview of Freight and Special Charges Modifiers


Freight and special charges are applied to the customers invoice, charging for the movement
of goods from the supplier to the destination. Freight and special charges can be applied to the
order as a whole or to individual order lines. Costs that are associated with the shipment of
goods can be entered in the Sales Orders window or the Shipping Transaction window. Freight
charges can be automatically derived from the freight cost. The freight charge represents the
amount charged to the customer receiving the shipment. The freight charge can be equivalent
to the freight cost or to a greater amount such as a freight cost plus a markup.

Overview of Basic Versus Advanced Pricing

Overview of Basic Versus Advanced Pricing


Oracle offers two levels of pricing functionality: Basic Pricing and the separate enhanced
product, Oracle Advanced Pricing. While both levels of functionality share some similarities,
the licensed Oracle Advanced Pricing application extends the ability to adjust pricing.
Note: Additionally, Oracle Advanced Pricing enables you to derive prices from external
sources. For further information on Oracle Advanced Pricing, see the Oracle Advanced Pricing
User and Implementation Manuals.

Overview of Price Lists

Overview of Price Lists


Price lists are essential to ordering products because each item entered on an order must have a
price. Price lists, like modifiers, consist of a header region where you can define general
information such as effective dates and currency, and price list lines where you can define item
and item category prices. For price list lines, you can define price breaks, and pricing
attributes.
Pricing sends customer list price, agreement price, and modifier information to orders being
entered manually in Order Management and to orders being entered in other Oracle
applications which can then be either imported or can use an API via Order Capture into Order
Management. Orders can proceed through the Order to Cash flow by being shipped, run
through the AutoInvoice program to Receivables and finally the accounting information can be
transferred to the General Ledger.

Price List Information

Price List Information


Basic price list header information: Basic information includes the price list name,
effective dates, currency, pricing controls, rounding factor, and shipping defaults such as
freight terms and freight carrier.
Price list lines: Enter a line for each item and unit of measure combination you sell.
Price breaks: If the price of an item varies with the quantity ordered, you can define
bracket pricing or price breaks.
Pricing attributes: Pricing attributes control what is being priced or modified on a price list
or modifier list.
Secondary price list: The pricing engine uses secondary price lists when it cannot
determine the price for an item using the price list assigned to an order. Primary and
secondary price lists have the same currency.

Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Basic Pricing Setup


Chapter 8 - Page 24

Price List Information

Price List Information (cont.)


Effective dates: Price lists can have starting and ending dates. This allows you to prepare
price lists ahead of when they are valid and to ensure they will not be used until their start
dates.
Inactive price lists: You can temporarily or permanently inactivate a price list using the
Active check box. Once a price list is inactivated, you can still do the following:
- Query the inactive price list: To retrieve only inactive price lists, deselect the Active
check box; to retrieve only price lists that are active, select the Active check box, then
run the query.
- Update it.
- Base a formula on an inactive price list. The pricing engine does select inactive price
lists when doing a pricing request. Other applications can call an inactive price list
and use relevant information.
Currency: Select a base currency for the price list. If you have international sales, you can
use the multicurrency feature so you can have a single price list for multiple currencies.
When you use the multicurrency conversion feature, it is not necessary to create a price
list for each currency. As long as there is a multicurrency conversion list set up for the

price list, the currency on the order does not have to match the currency defined in the
price list.
Rounding Factor: You can define the number of places to the right or left of the decimal
point to which the pricing engine rounds prices from price lists and modifiers from
modifier lists:
- A negative rounding number such as -3 rounds the number of characters to the right
of the decimal point. For example, a rounding factor of -3 indicates rounding to the
nearest thousands so 1.1445 rounds to 1.145.
- A positive rounding number such as +2 rounds the number of characters to the left of
the decimal point. A rounding factor of 2 indicates rounding to the nearest hundreds
so 107 rounds to 100.
- If you enter zero, you affect nothing.

responsibility.
(N) Pricing > Price Lists > Price List Setup
The pricing engine requires that all Items, Services, Models, Option Classes, and Options
should be selected and displayed on the price list.
You will need to set up a price list for each currency you use. The pricing engine will only
consider price lists that share the same currency as the pricing request. Therefore a sales order
placed in Yen will have to utilize a Yen-based price list.
The Round to field in the Price List window controls the rounding factor. Entering a positive
number affects positions to the left of the decimal while entering a negative number affects
positions to the right of the decimal. Example, -2 would round to the second decimal point. The
type of currency standard or extended which has to be defaulted on the price list is
determined by the Profile Option: QP: UNIT_PRICE_PRECISION_TYPE.
Secondary Price Lists
As with other areas of pricing, the Basic Pricing license controls available functionality to the
user. Basic Pricing allows one Secondary price list. A secondary price list allows the pricing

engine to look at more that one price list to determine the value of the sales order line. The
Pricing engine will look to the Secondary Price list if the requesting item and unit of measure is
not on the Primary Price list. A secondary price list is a price list you have defined previously.
Any price list has the ability to be used as a secondary price list.
Price Lists and Sales Order Defaults
Fields such as Payment Terms, Freight Terms, and Freight Carrier are available on the Price
List form. By defining the Order Management defaulting rules to use these fields from the
Price List window, you are able to default values directly into the sales order based upon which
price list has been selected for the order. For more information on Defaulting Rules, see the
Order Management Users Guide.
Note: Price Lists cannot be deleted, however a price list is made valid or invalid with the use
of its effective dates. Alternatively, selecting or deselecting the Active box also temporarily or
permanently makes the price list available or unavailable for use.

The Product Attribute enables you to enter one price per Item number, one price per Item
Category, or one price for All Items. If you have entered all three prices on a Price List, the
pricing engine will always select the Item Numbers price over the Item Categorys and the
Item Categorys over All Items.
The List line UOM is a required element of the validation process. The pricing request is for an
Item/UOM and only price lists that have the same item and unit of measure will be considered.
If you select the Primary UOM and you enter an item/unit of measure combination on a sales
order that is not on a price list, the pricing engine converts the unit of measure on the order to
the items primary UOM and then uses the UOM conversions to calculate the unit price.
Example: Price List setup: BB-2200, $6.00 each, Primary UOM is selected. Sales Order
request: BB-2200 1 dozen. Result: 12*6.00 = $72.00 unit price.
You can use the Precedence column to enter a number that the pricing engine uses to resolve
incompatibilities, for example, if it finds the same price for the same item). A price list line

with a lower value in the Precedence column will have a higher precedence and will be
selected to price the line; for example a Precedence value of 1 is selected before 2.
You can select product, pricing, or qualifier contexts in the price list and select the
corresponding attributes that determine the pricing action. The product context contains only
one context type Item. The pricing context contains all the pricing attributes that have been
created and linked through the Attribute Management windows. The qualifier context allows
you to link your customer hierarchy to the pricing action and ensure that the customer
attributes also play a part in determining pricing of the item.

Price List Line

Price List Line (cont.)


You can enter an absolute value that represents the unit price of your price list line item. For
service program items you can either enter an absolute value that represents the unit price of
your service program, or you can enter a percentage value that represents the percentage of
another items price. When you are selling a service program on a sales order you are prompted
for the item that the service program will cover. The pricing engine finds the price of the
covered item and calculates the price of the service program by multiplying the percent times
the items unit price. It then takes that amount multiplied by the duration of the coverage.
Example of percent of other price:
Price List setup:
Service Programs item number is set up at 10% per year.
Sales Order request: Customer purchases 1 years worth of coverage for an Item which
sells for 1200.00.
The pricing engine calculates .10 * 1200 * 1 (year) = 120.00.
Formulas can be used to if you need an algebraic expression to calculate the selling price.
Basic pricing supports entering a formula name in the Static Formula field. Static Formulas

value prior to being used by the pricing engine. The price list supports both positive and
negative values. A negative value enables you to create an item which represent a restocking
fee. Enter this item on your price list with a negative value, then enter this item on your Return
order. When the pricing engine calculates the total value of the return it will subtract the
restocking fee thus lowering the value of the credit memo. The pricing engine evaluates Start
and End dates.

Secondary Price List

Secondary Price List


A secondary price list enables the pricing engine to look at more that one price list to determine
the value of the sales order line. The pricing engine reads from the secondary price list if the
requesting item and unit of measure cannot be found on the primary price list. (You must have
defined the secondary price list previously.) Any price list can be used as a secondary price list.
The pricing engine evaluates the precedence of the secondary price list along with the product
precedence on the list lines to determine the most eligible price list line.
Note: If you are using a sales agreement with a standard price list (and secondary price list)
attached, the secondary price list is evaluated if the item is not found on the primary price list
for the sales agreement.

(N) > Pricing > Price Lists > Copy Price List
Copying a Price List enables you to create a new price list without adding lines manually to the
price list. You are able to utilize controls within the Copy Price List window to determine
which line items will be copied during the process.
One option is to include the copying of discounts (modifiers) when copying an existing price
list. This option will create new modifiers for each existing modifier that has the original price
list as either a modifier list qualifier or a modifier line qualifier. The new modifiers name will
be a concatenation of the original modifier plus a sequence number and the new price list will
have a modifier list qualifier. When creating the new price list you can specify any applicable
effective dates. Because the pricing engine will not use the new price list until its Effective
Date, you can create price lists before they are required in the application.

Adjust Price List

Adjust Price List


Order Management Super User, Vision Operations (USA)
(N) Pricing > Price Lists > Adjust Price List
Use the Adjust Price List program to mass update your price list values. Note that using the
Adjust Price List program to change values does not create a history record. You will not be
able to recapture the old price. If you need to retrieve expired prices, do not use Adjust Price
List option. This option enables you to increase or decrease the current price by a percent or an
amount.
Elements you can update:
Optionally adjust only a Range of Items.
Optionally adjust only an Item Category. Many companies adjust their Items selling
prices annually or when the product cost has drastically changed. This is often done by
Product Family. If you set up an Item Category to represent the Product Family you can
quickly markup the subset of Price List Lines.
Optionally adjust only Items with a specific Item Status.

Basic Pricing Setup


Chapter 8 - Page 50

Any time a new line is added to a price (manually, copy, or Add Items) the system
populates the Creation Date with the system date.
Use the Creation Date to select only items that were added on a given date. This is very
helpful when you have used the Add Items to Price List program to add new items At
Cost. This enables you to markup the new items while leaving the older lines untouched.
Use the Copy program to create as many price list as your business procedures support
and then Adjust the Price List Value by a Percent or an Amount.

The Add Items to Price List window enables you to quickly add items to an existing price list.
When using the Add Items to Price list feature, you can use a number of control attributes
within the window to identify which items should be added to the list. These options include
addition by the range of item numbers, item category, and item status. You can only add items
from this window to one list at a time. To add all of the items that have a category of Shippable
to five different price lists, use the Add Items to Price List window five times, to add the
Shippable category to each price list individually.
Using the Set Price Equal to Cost option, you can retrieve the current cost of the item by
selecting an inventory organization that stores item costs; the current cost retrieved is stored in
the same price list as the item.

You can use the Add Items to Price List program to add Product Lines to existing price lists.
When new product lines are added to your inventory, assign unique Categories to them, so that
you can add them to your existing price lists using the Add Items feature by Item Category.
If you are in an industry where your selling prices are set at a given Percent over cost, add your
items at cost with a Future Effective Start date; then use the Adjust Price List program to
markup the new items.
Note that the Add Items to Price List program does not overwrite any list lines that have the
same Item Number and Unit of Measure as the Inventory Item Number and its Primary unit of
measure. This means that you cannot accidentally overwrite current valid values.

Overview of Modifiers

Overview of Modifiers
Use modifiers to adjust the list price. Select from the following modifier types in basic pricing:
Discounts, Surcharges, Point Price Breaks, Freight and Special Charges.
Create Order Level Modifiers to apply modifier to all order lines.
Create Line Level Modifiers to apply modifier to only the current line.
Using qualifiers with modifier lists can improve processing time because the pricing engine
selects only those modifiers that are applicable to the current pricing request. By creating
qualifiers for your modifier list and lines, you can create rules that will be automatically
applied by the pricing engine.
From the order or order line you can use the Action View Adjustments to see the details of
modifiers that were applied automatically by the pricing engine or to apply manual discounts.
Also, if the modifier is overridable, you can use this window to enter new values or override
the pre-defined values.

(N ) Pricing > Modifiers > Modifier Setup
The Modifier Type restricts the kinds of lines that can be attached. Basic Pricing supports three
types of Modifier Lists:
Discounts create a negative price adjustment.
Surcharges create a positive price adjustment.
Freight and Special Charges (including Handling charges) create a charge amount.
Elements within the Modifier List window:
The Active check box allows the modifier list to be evaluated by the pricing engine.
The Start and End Dates define when the modifier list is effective.
The currency on the modifier list must match the currency on the pricing request.
Use a combination of qualifiers to establish pricing rules that will be respected by the
pricing engine.
Modifiers can remain price list independent or you can use your price lists as qualifiers.

Some businesses have such a flexible selling price where they need to overwrite the
calculated price with a new price. To do this, create a modifier line and deselect the
Automatic check box and select the Override check box. Optionally, restrict the modifier
to a specific Item number or item category by using the Product Attribute.
If multiple discounts are eligible to be applied, then the pricing engine applies the modifier that
gives the lowest price to the customer (incompatibility resolution using best price rather than
precedence).

Modifier Line Examples


You can create the following pricing modifier line types in Basic Pricing:
Discount: When the seller offers a discount on the list price of the item. The discount can
be a percent, lump sum, amount, or new price.
Surcharge: The price of the item attracts an additional charge. As with discounts, the
surcharge can be a percent, lump sum, amount, or new price.
Freight and Special Charges: These are charges applicable during the shipping of items.
Price Breaks: Price Break modifiers are applied only at the line level. In this type of
modifier, when the quantity or amount falls within a particular price bracket, the
corresponding price is applied.

Discount Modifier
A discount can be a percentage of a basic value. For example, a corporate customer can be
offered a 15 percent discount. A discount can also be for a fixed amount. For example, a
discount of $10 can be offered to a customer who spends more than $300.
Scenario 1
If a customer is either a preferred customer or a customer who spends more than $150, they
receive 10 percent off the order.
Scenario 2
For any 10 compact discs purchased by April 2000, the customer receives $2 off.

Qualifier Overview

Qualifier Overview
A qualifier consists of one or more conditions that define eligibility for a particular price or
benefit. Qualifiers are an intrinsic part of pricing logic that enable you to create eligibility rules
for modifiers. You can use grouping numbers to create AND and OR conditions between
different qualifier conditions:
If the Grouping Numbers are the same, AND logic is applied.
If the Grouping Numbers are different, OR condition is applied.
If the Grouping Number is 1, then that qualifier is always used with an AND condition
with the other qualifiers. The qualifier with a grouping number of 1 is mandatory and
must be satisfied, irrespective of other qualifiers.

Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Basic Pricing Setup


Chapter 8 - Page 82

Example of Qualifier Hierarchy

Example of Qualifier Hierarchy


Qualifier attributes represent values that can be compared to values on your sales order. The
pricing engine evaluates these qualifier attributes to determine which modifier list and modifier
lines should be applied to the order. Basic Pricing limits the seeded qualifier contexts for both
the modifier list and the modifier line.
Qualifiers for Modifier Lists
Customer:
- Customer Name
- Bill to
- Ship to
- Customer Class
Modifier List: Price List
Qualifiers for Modifier Lines
Customer:
- Agreement Name
- Agreement Type

Chapter 8 - Page 83

Order:
- Customer PO
- Order Type
Note: When a qualifier has a grouping number 1, it implies that the qualifier will be taken as
mandatory in comparison to other qualifiers.

Using Qualifiers with Modifier Lists

Using Qualifiers with Modifier Lists


Create qualifiers to define eligibility rules for the modifier list or lines.
Qualifier Contexts: Flattened hierarchies where similar qualifying attributes can be
grouped into logical categories. The specificity is indicated by precedence.
Qualifier Attributes: Specific attributes associated with a context that define eligibility

Freight and Special Charge List Modifier

Freight and Special Charge List Modifier


Use this modifier to apply freight costs to the order total. For example, any customer who
places an order for less than $500 pays a freight charge of 20 percent of the order cost.

Freight and Special Charge List Modifier

Freight and Special Charge List Modifier


Freight and special charges are costs associated with the shipment of goods. You can use
Freight and Special Charge List modifiers to apply different freight charges to an order or line
and thereby, increase the selling price. Additionally, you can enter the freight and shipping
costs in Shipping Execution and have the Freight and Special Charge List modifiers convert
them into charges in Order Management. The freight charge may be equal to the freight cost,
or it could be the freight cost with a markup.

Setting Up Freight and Special Charge List Modifiers

Setting Up Freight and Special Charge List Modifiers


Using Freight and Special Charge List modifiers, you can apply charges to sales orders either
automatically or manually. Here is an example of how to set up automatic order level charges
using modifiers:
1. Select Freight and Special Charge List as the type of modifier.
2. In the Modifier Summary tab, enter the modifier lines, specifying that the modifier is to be
applied at the order level.
3. Set up header level qualifiers that will be applicable at the list level. You can define the
qualifier to accept only orders with Freight Terms of Prepay and Add.
4. When you enter an order with Freight Terms of Prepay and Add, the charges are applied
to the order automatically and you can view them in the order window.
Please note that this is only one example of a type of setup, various other ways of setting up
Freight and Special Charges Modifiers are possible.

Practice - Creating a Freight and Special Charge List Modifier


Overview
In this practice, you create a Freight and Special Charge List modifier using formulas, modifiers,
and qualifiers. In this exercise you will define:

Two Special Charge Formulas

A Modifier List with four line modifiers that determine how to use the formulas

List and line qualifiers to determine eligibility

Note: For freight charge modifiers, you can apply freight charges corresponding to ONLY
ONE Charge name (such as "Freight Costs") even if several charge names qualify.

Assumptions

Oracle Order Management Super User responsibility

You must have access to an Oracle Application Vision database or comparable training
or test instance at your site on which to complete this practice.

Note: Oracle Advanced Pricing screenshots are shown in the Solution section of this
practice. If you are running Basic Pricing, the pricing system software components restrict
exposure of advanced features in the pricing windows. Therefore, the screenshots may differ
from the pricing windows in the Oracle Application Vision database or comparable training
or test instance you use at your site to complete this practice.

Overview of Price Books

Overview of Price Books


A price book is a pricing report that displays item list and net prices (for a specific customer)
based on a specific pricing date. Within the price book, you can view details of the list price,
discounts, surcharges, price breaks, and freight and special charges. The price book supports
formula-based prices, and you can view price break and pricing attribute details.
Freight and special charges: Although freight and special charges do not affect the unit selling
price in Basic Pricing, they will affect the net price in the price book.
Pricing buckets: If pricing buckets have been defined for any modifiers, the modifiers will be
displayed in the order of the pricing buckets, with the null bucket modifiers displayed last
From the online view, you can view any price break details or any pricing attributes used in the
price calculation. Pricing errors (such as missing pricing attribute for formula processing or
duplicate prices) are also displayed on a separate page.

Implementation Steps: Setting Key Profile Options

Implementation Steps: Setting Key Profile Options


QP: E-mail - From Address
You need to set up the profile option QP: E-mail - From Address to specify the sender's e-mail
address for any e-mails that are sent from the price book feature. When the price book is emailed, the recipient can identify and respond to the senders return e-mail address. There is no
default value for the profile option and can be updated at the Site and User level.
Important: Publishing a price book to a printer or as an e-mail attachment and creation of the
View Document (formatted document) is dependent on the availability of the Delivery Server
Component of the Oracle XML Publisher (XDO) product.
QP: External Default Pricing Perspective
This profile option sets the default pricing perspective for all external users. The value defaults
to the Pricing Perspective field in the Create Price Book page. This profile can be set at the site
or user level and the default value is Order Management Order.

QP: Internal Default Pricing Perspective
This profile sets the default value for the pricing perspective for all internal users using the
price book feature. The values can be applications like Oracle Order Management or Oracle
Purchasing that request information from the pricing application. The Pricing Perspective field
in the Create Price Book page displays the default value; however, an internal user can
override this value by selecting a different pricing perspective. This profile can be set at the site
level only and default value is Order Management Order
Note: Oracle Advanced Pricing is not one of the valid values for this profile option.
QP: Pricing Perspective Request Type
This profile option is used for the price book feature to map the Pricing Perspective to the
Request type calling the price book. It can be set at system administrator site and system
administration application levels. The default value at the site level is Order Management
Order.
Note: External users cannot view or change the Pricing Perspective field. The value PO
(Oracle Purchasing) is valid for internal users but not external users.

Implementation Steps: Setting up Oracle XML Publisher

Implementation Steps: Setting up Oracle XML Publisher


Using Oracle XML Publisher, you can publish your price books in a variety of formats such as
PDF, RTF, and EXCEL (XLS). The Delivery Server Component of the Oracle XML Publisher
(XDO) product (available with XML Publisher 5.0 and newer versions) is required to send the
price book to a printer or as an e-mail attachment. Use the seeded XML templates to generate
your price books, or create additional templates depending on the desired publishing option (email or print) and the output format [EXCEL (XLS), PDF, RTF]; for example, you may want a
separate template for print versions and another for e-mail.
Note: To send the price book as an e-mail attachment, you also need to configure the e-mail
server in XML Publisher. Oracle XML Publisher is required to create and maintain XML
Publisher templates that define the layout for the published price book.

Creating a Price Book

Creating a Price Book


You can create price books to generate prices for a single item, an item category, all items, or
items within a specified price lists. The prices generated in the price book are based on the
pricing perspective. The value for the operating unit defaults from the Multi-Org Access
Control (MOAC) setup.
The pricing perspective mimics the calling application so as to simulate prices coming from an
order, service contract, or purchase order. An internal user can edit the value but an external
cannot view or edit it. These prices are currency specific, but the price book does handle multicurrency (price list) conversions supported in price lists.
Note: All item/UOM combinations will be priced.
You can set the pricing effective date for a past date, current date, or future date. Information
in the Price Calculation Criteria will be input parameters to generate the price book. Currency,
Quantity, and Customer are mandatory fields. The quantity will always default to 1, but can be
updated. You can specify a price list, pricing agreement, or sales agreement as a starting point
for the price book. The pricing engine will always perform a search across all the valid pricing
setups to derive the price.

Creating a Price Book: Defining General Price Book Criteria


Select details about the price book including the name and pricing perspective. The value you
select in the Product Criteria field determines what items will appear in the price book. You
can select a single item, item category, all items, or price list. If price list is selected, all items
and UOM combinations within the price list will get priced, but the final list price may be
derived from a different price list.
Notes:
The Operating Unit value defaults from the Multi-Org Access Control (MOAC) setup.
An internal user can edit the pricing perspective value but an external cannot view or edit
it.

The price calculation criteria includes values such as currency, date, customer, and quantity,
that the pricing engine requires to generate price books. Optionally, you can enter a value in
the Pricing Basis field to give the pricing engine a starting point from which to look for prices.
Currency: Prices are currency specific, but handles multi-currency (price lists) conversions
supported in price lists.
Pricing effective dates: Past date, current date, or future dates.
Pricing Basis: Agreement, sales agreement, or price list.
Additional criteria: Define further qualities for price book such as qualifiers, pricing
attributes. These attributes may determine if a specific price or modifier will be applied. If
you do any formula-based pricing using pricing attributes, enter those attributes here.

Viewing Price Book Details Online


The price book determines all the items to be priced and then displays each item in their
respective item category. If an item belongs in more than one category, then the price book will
display multiple categories. For an item, you will see the price list used to derive the list price.
If there are any line level discounts, surcharges, price breaks, or freight and special charge
modifier, then these will be displayed below the list price line. If pricing buckets have been
defined for any modifiers, the modifiers will be displayed in the order of the pricing buckets,
with the null bucket modifiers displayed last. Although freight and special charges do not
affect the unit selling price in pricing, they will affect the Net Price in the price book.
From the online view, you can view any price break details or any pricing attributes used in the
price calculation. Pricing errors (such as missing pricing attribute for formula processing or
duplicate prices) are also displayed on a separate page.

Shipping Execution Flow

Shipping Execution Flow


After a sales order has been booked, the sales order lines must complete all workflow activities
leading up to the shipping activity. Two typical preceding workflow activities are Schedule Line and Ship - Line, Manual .
Schedule Line
Scheduling the line makes the order lines demand visible to Oracle Inventory for planning.
It also sets the Shipment Schedule Date.
Create Supply
Variety of subflow paths can be taken within Create Supply Line based on the type of item
shipped. They are as follows:
Configurable Items: Configurable items must complete the Create Supply activity which
takes an order line through a build cycle. The final assemblies that are completed out of
Oracle Work in Process are received into Oracle Inventory as Reserved for a specific
customers order.
Drop ship: Drop ship order lines must complete the Create Supply activity too. After a
Purchase Requisition has been passed to Oracle Purchasing the order line advances to the
Shipping Activity.
Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Overview of Shipping Execution


Chapter 9 - Page 5

Standard Shippable Items: Standard shippable items dont need to perform any of the
Create Supply activities so directly advance to the Shipping activity.
Shipping
What happens when the order line reaches Ship Line workflow activity?
Oracle Order Management calls Oracle Shipping Execution APIs to indicate that a line is
Ready to Release.
The sales order line status is changed to Awaiting Shipping. Order lines that are awaiting
shipping have corresponding records in Oracle Shipping Execution module called
Delivery Lines.
Pick Release process creates move orders to move items to the staging location and create
reservation in Oracle Inventory.
From the staging area shipments are weighed, packed and shipped.
Deliveries are Ship Confirmed out of the staging location.
When a delivery is Ship Confirmed, Oracle Shipping Execution calls OM APIs to
communicate the event, triggering the line flow to move forward.

Delivery and Delivery Lines

Delivery and Delivery Lines


Delivery Lines
When sales order lines are booked or scheduled in Order Management, associated delivery
lines are created in Oracle Shipping Execution.
Delivery
You can either manually or automatically group delivery lines to create a delivery. If a delivery
is auto-created, the delivery lines are grouped together by the mandatory default criteria, Ship
From Location and Ship To Location. However, additional grouping criteria can be included
such as:
- Customer
- Freight Terms
- FOB Code
- Intermediate Ship To Location
- Ship Method

Trips and Stops

Trips and Stops


Trips
A trip is an instance of a specific freight carrier departing from a particular location containing
deliveries. A trip is carrier specific and contains at least two stops such as the pick-up stop and
drop-off stop. Trips can be created automatically or manually.
Stops
A stop is a point along the route of a trip where goods are either picked up, dropped off, or
both.

Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Chapter 9 - Page 8

Delivery Leg

Delivery Leg
A delivery leg is synonymous to bill of lading and consists of at least two stops. A bill of
lading is an agreement between the shipper and carrier acknowledging receipt of goods
shipped. The bill of lading has all the details specifying the terms of delivery. A delivery might
consist of several delivery legs to reach its final destination.

Containers/LPNs

Containers/LPNs
License Plate Numbers (LPNs), also known as containers, are used for packing delivery lines.
You can create containers without assigning them to a delivery. This is useful if you want to
create multiple containers of the same type then pack them with unassigned delivery lines.

Chapter 9 - Page 10

Pick Release

Pick Release
Pick release is the process of finding and releasing eligible delivery lines that meet the release
criteria that you specify. Pick release creates move orders for picking from inventory. The
release criteria is defined based on your business requirements. You customize the release
criteria by defining the following:
Release Rules: The release rules identify which delivery lines should be considered for
pick release and the picking operations that should be performed on the selected lines.
Release Sequence Rules: The release sequence rules define the order in which eligible
picks are allocated inventory.
Pick Slip Grouping Rules: The pick slip grouping rules define how released order lines
are grouped on the pick slips for ease of picking.

Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Overview of Shipping Execution


Chapter 9 - Page 11

Move Orders

Move Orders
A move order is a request to transfer materials from a subinventory to a staging location. The
pick release process creates move orders pre-approved requests for subinventory transfer. The
move order consists of move order lines that must be moved from the subinventory to the
staging location. To release the move order lines, the lines must be allocated with the materials
from the subinventory. Oracle Inventory picking engine fills in the move order lines with the
transaction details. It also places a high-level reservation on the material if no reservation
previously exists. This process is called allocation.
Staging Location
A staging location is the destination subinventory where the materials are deposited after
picking. Material deposited in the staging location is then in position for its next step, which is
ship confirm. Each organization must designate at least one staging subinventory. In a
warehouse, the staging location is physically located typically near the shipping dock. Staging
subinventories should be reservable. Each pick release batch created at pick release will have
the same destination staging subinventory.

Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Overview of Shipping Execution


Chapter 9 - Page 12

Pick Confirmation

Pick Confirmation
Pick confirmation is a process that performs the transfer of materials from the source
subinventory location to the staging location. The transfer is performed based on the allocation
made by Oracle Inventory to the move order lines. Pick confirmation automatically transfers
the high level reservation to an allocated reservation (including lots, subinventory, and
locators) in the staging location.

Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Overview of Shipping Execution


Chapter 9 - Page 13

Ship Confirm

Ship Confirm
Ship Confirm is the process of confirming that items have been shipped from the staging
location. Delivery lines must be in the Staged/Pick Confirmed status to perform Ship Confirm.
During Ship Confirm you can perform the following actions:
Backordering: Backordering when only a partial quantity of items that were pick released
require shipping. When a delivery line is backordered, the delivery line is split into two
delivery lines. The original line quantity is the detailed quantity. The new line quantity is
the difference between the requested quantity and the detailed quantity.
Consolidating Backorders: Consolidating backorders is an automatic process that
combines several backordered delivery lines having the same source line, back into one
delivery line. Consolidating Backorders is performed during Pick Release, Cycle Count,
or Ship Confirm. When a backorder occurs, Oracle Shipping Execution searches for the
existing backorder delivery lines for a particular source line.
Note: To consolidate backorders the Consolidate Backorder Lines field in the Global
Parameters window must be selected.
Making Items Non-Reservable: Making items non-reservable places a reservation on the
items such that they are not available for other delivery lines. While making the items
Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Overview of Shipping Execution


Chapter 9 - Page 14

non-reservable you must specify the subinventory and stock locator to pick the items
from. If the items are serial controlled, lot controlled, or revision controlled you must
specify the respective details while making items non-reservable.
Models: You can ship Model items non-proportionately, for example:
- You ship all the components but not in the correct proportion
- You do not ship all of the components

Automated Shipping Process

Automated Shipping Process


The automated shipping processes will be useful when the shipping personnel rarely alter or
modify the attributes of the shipment. The automated shipping process can be used to perform
the following automatically:
Pick Release: The pick release process can be automated to perform delivery creation,
pick selection, pick allocation, and pick confirmation.
Packing: You can run Auto-Pack SRS to run the packing process periodically.
Ship Confirm: You can run Auto Ship Confirm SRS to run the ship confirm process
periodically.
One Step Shipping performs Pick Release, Pack, and Ship Confirm all in one go.

One Step Shipping

One Step Shipping


One step Shipping involves picking and shipping, or picking, packing, and shipping of one or
more deliveries or delivery lines. When you perform one step shipping you achieve the
following:
Auto create deliveries for delivery lines, if delivery lines are not associated with a
delivery.
Pick release and pick confirm all delivery lines assigned to the deliveries. This includes
the deliveries that were autocreated.
Auto pack all delivery lines assigned to the deliveries that are in the Staged/Pick
Confirmed status.
Note: To automatically pack all delivery lines into LPNs,
you must set the autopack level for your organization as Yes
or Autopack Master in the Shipping Transaction tab of
Shipping Parameters window. For more information, see the
lesson titled Shipping Transaction Parameters slide.
Note: Container-load relationship should be defined for the
delivery line items

Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Overview of Shipping Execution


Chapter 9 - Page 17

Ship confirm all delivery lines assigned to the deliveries that are in the Staged status and
which does not require assignment of serial numbers.
Note: To automatically ship confirm, you must assign a ship
confirm rule to your organization. You can assign the same
in the Shipping Transaction tab of Shipping Parameters
window. For more information, see the lesson titled
Shipping Transaction Parameters slide.

Auto create trips, if trips and stops are not manually created for the delivery lines.
Note: If pick, pack, and ship process is not successful for even one delivery line of a delivery,
the one step shipping cannot be performed on the entire delivery.
Note: To ship confirm from the Shipping Transactions form, the organization to which the
sales order belongs should be attached with a ship confirm rule.

Granting Roles To Users

Granting Roles To Users


(N) Shipping > Setup > Grants and Role Definitions > Grants
You can use the Shipping Execution Grants window to grant a user a role in one organization
or all organizations for a period of time. The role is assigned to a user by a grant. The grant is
specific to a particular user and defines the roles assigned to the user, the organization where
the grant is effective, the start date and optionally, an end date.
More than one grant can be assigned if the user requires different access controls to more than
one organization. The start and end dates for grants can overlap.
For example, if a user requires full-access privileges to three organizations and view-only
access to a fourth, the user must be assigned four grantsone for each respective organization
(three full-access and one view-only grant). However, if only one grant is assigned, that grant
becomes the default grant for the user.
In addition, the grant has the following requirements:
A grant may or may not have one inventory organization selected.
Many grants can be assigned for each role.

Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Shipping Execution Setup


Chapter 10 - Page 14

A user can have one or more grants. If the user does not have any grant (expired, effective,
or future), the default is view-only access to all organizations. If the user has grants, the
user's access is controlled by the effective grants. If there are overlapping grants in the
same organization or an intersection of grant date ranges, the union of grant privileges
controls the user's access.

Freight Carriers

Freight Carriers
(N) Shipping > Setup > Freight Carriers, Cost Types > Freight Carriers
A freight carrier is a commercial company that transports shipments to and from customers,
suppliers, and internal organizations. A freight carrier can consist of different service levels
and mode of transportation. You must assign a freight carrier to a delivery in order to ship
confirm if Enforce Ship Methods is enabled in Global Shipping Parameters window. You can
classify a freight carrier as follows:
Active: An active carrier is a carrier attached with a vehicle.
Generic: A generic carrier is virtual carrier that is attached to a vehicle. A generic carrier
can be defined to set up the transit time between an origin and destination. Only transit
time information can be specified for a generic carrier. Other information such as rating,
manifesting, load tendering cannot be defined for a generic carrier.
Note: The ship method of the freight carrier can be used by the organization only if the ship
method is assigned to the organization.
Ship Method
Ship method is the concatenation of the following:

Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Shipping Execution Setup


Chapter 10 - Page 19

Freight Carrier: Name of the freight carrier.


Service Level: The freight carrier can provide different levels of service. For example,
service levels can be door-to-door, next day air, and ground.
Mode: The freight carrier can be provide different modes of service. For example, the
mode of service can be LTL,TL, or parcel.
Example: Freight carrier: Truck
Mode: LTL
Service Level: Ground
Ship method: Truck-LTL-Ground
Note: For a ship method to be used by an organization, it must be assigned to it.

Regions and Zones

Regions and Zones


You can use Regions and Zones to group by geographical areas and save the effort of setting
up point-to-point transit times. The terms used while defining regions and zones are as follows:
Region: A geographical area, for example, a group of cities, states, provinces, or a
country. You can model regions at different levels of scale. A region can consist of
countries, provinces or states, cities, or postal codes.
Sub-Region: A child of a region. For example, the sub-regions of the region Canada can
be its provinces; the sub region of the region London can be its postal codes
Zone: A collection of regions, for example, a western zone. Zone information is unique to
your business.
Regional Transit Times: The in-transit time for the shipment between ship-from
location, ship-to location, locations, zones, and regions based on the shipping methods.
The advantage of planning shipments in terms of regions and zones are:
Enter and maintain in-transit and sourcing rules information between zones rather than
between every ship-from and ship-to location combination
With less in-transit information Oracle Shipping Execution finds the information faster

Document Categories

Document Categories
(N) Shipping > Setup > Documents > Document Categories
You can use the Document Categories functionality to categorize the shipping documents. Use
the Document Categories window to define the document categories.
You can create more than one document category for a document. For example, while printing
the Bill Of Lading (BOL) for a freight carrier, you want the name of the freight carrier to
printed as a suffix in the document, you can define a separate document category for the freight
carrier. When you use different BOL sequence for each carrier, you can identify the carrier by
looking at the BOL.
Document categories can be specified for the following:
Document Types/Ship Method/Carriers: When you specify the document categories for
specific document types, ship method, or carriers, you can identify the document.
Location: A specific location can be attached to the document category. For example, if
you have a freight carrier named Trucking Company and when it has the following
departure:
- From warehouse 1, the bill of lading number is WH1-12345- Trucking Co

ITM Adapter Integration

ITM Adapter Integration


Oracle Order Management and Oracle Shipping Execution integrates with International Trade
Management (ITM) adapters to perform the following:
Order Compliance: The partner ITM application evaluates the sales order lines for
export compliance request to the ITM adapter.
Delivery Compliance: The export compliance is performed on the deliveries or shipment.

Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Shipping Execution Setup


Chapter 10 - Page 40

Delivery Compliance Screening

Delivery Compliance Screening


Export compliance Screening can be performed either at delivery creation or at ship
confirmation. The export compliance screening request is submitted to the ITM adapters
interface tables. The ITM adapter generates and transmits the export compliance service
request XML to the partner application. A synchronous acknowledgment is expected from the
ITM application. The export compliance request XML contains all the necessary data elements
required for checking the compliance of the delivery.
The partner ITM application evaluates the delivery for export compliance and responds to
Oracle Applications with the overall pass or fail status. The asynchronous response is received
by Oracle XML gateway and a synchronous acknowledgement is provided to the partner
application. The XML gateway passes the response information to the ITM adapter, which in
turn handles the exception, originally logged against the delivery to prevent from ship
confirmation.
If a delivery is determined to be non compliant, the ITM adapter logs compliance failure
exception against the delivery. You will need to manually cancel these cancel these deliveries
depending upon their business processes. In case, the ITM application is unable to evaluate the
compliance of a delivery programmatically, the ITM application notifies the compliance users
Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Shipping Execution Setup

for a manual compliance review. A response is not communicated back to Oracle Application
until a final compliance determination is made by the compliance user.

Shipping Exceptions

Shipping Exceptions
During shipping and transportation of goods there are many possibilities of encountering a
situation that violates the requirements of a shipper, transportation carrier, or the customer.
These situations are called Shipping Exceptions. The process of handling the exception is
called Handling Shipping Exceptions. Shipping Exceptions enable you to identify and handle
nonconforming operations that violate the requirements of your business or that of your
carriers and customers.
The shipping entities that can incur shipping exceptions are delivery, delivery lines, containers,
trips, and stops. For each shipping entity the shipping exceptions logged against it are
displayed in the Shipping Transactions form and Quick Ship window. If there is any exception
logged against an entity, the Exception check box is enabled. The color of checkbox will
display the level of exception. They are as follows:
Red: This color of the checkbox indicates that there exist at least one exception for this
entity which is an error
Yellow: This color of the checkbox indicates that there exists at least one exception for
this entity which is a warning

Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Shipping Execution Setup

No Color: If the exceptions checkbox is checked but there is no red or yellow color, then
there exists at least one exception exists for this shipping entity as information only
Shipping Exceptions can be classified as:
Seeded Exceptions: Seeded exceptions are the default exceptions that ship with Oracle
Shipping Execution.

Creating Containers

Creating Containers
Containers, also known as License Plate Numbers (LPNs), are used to pack items. LPNs can be
created at any point in the shipping process. Packing is the process in which the items are
packed into containers. LPNs can be created in the following ways:
Manually: You can create LPNs without assigning them to a delivery. You can use this
method, when you want to create multiple containers of the same type and then pack them
with unassigned delivery lines. This makes packing more flexible because you can plan
and pack ahead of time or as needed.
Automatically: Auto-packing provides a convenient and quick way of automatically
packing delivery lines into LPNs. The delivery lines are packed into the LPNs based on
the Container-item relationship set up in Oracle Shipping Execution or in Oracle
Inventory.
Note: You can pack delivery lines into LPNs regardless of whether they are pick released or
not pick released.

Container-Item Relationship

Container-Item Relationship
(N) Shipping > Setup > Container Load Details
The container-item relationship defines the container used for packing the delivery lines. When
setting this relationship define the maximum quantity of load items (delivery lines) that can be
packed into a container. For example, when you define 12 items of X that can be packed into
Y, this information is used to calculate the following:
Calculate the number of containers required for delivery lines in a delivery or trip. This
enables you to use the auto-pack function to auto-pack delivery line items into new
containers. The number of containers required to pack the delivery lines is automatically
calculated based on the container-item relationships.
Calculate the fill percentage for containers when the Fill Percentage Shipping parameter is
set to Quantity. For more information refer to General Tab In Shipping Parameters slide.
Note: The container-item relationship is only used for autopacking when the Shipping
Parameter, Percent Fill Basis is set to Quantity.
You can define the container-item relationship in the Container-Item Relationships window.
Container Item: Select the container item from the list of values bag, tote, A2-box

Item: Select the load item that you want to pack in the container
Maximum Quantity: Enter the maximum number of items that can be packed in the

Container Load Details

Container Load Details


(N) Shipping > Setup > Container Load Details
Container-Load relationships are used when you use the Auto-Pack and Auto-Pack Master
functionality. The relationship specifies the items that can be automatically packed into
specified containers, and in what quantity.
Your item and container must be defined. Then, you define the maximum quantity of the item
to be loaded.
You could potentially have multiple load-relationships between items and containers. The
Preferred Flag is used to set a preference of a container-load relationship, Auto-Pack and AutoPack Master will use the preferred relationship when packing that item. For example, if you
have two container-load relationships for Item Aone with container A, which is the
preferred LPN/container, and one with Container Bthe maximum load defined in the
relationship with Container A will be used when you select Auto-Pack or Auto-Pack Master
for packing Item A. You must set the Preferred Flag for one of the container-load relationships
you have for an item in order to use Auto-Pack or Auto-Pack Master for that item. If you do
not set the Preferred Flag for one of the relationships for an item, you will receive an error
message.

Packing Delivery Lines into Containers

Packing Delivery Lines into Containers


Delivery lines can be packed into containers either manually or automatically.
Manually Packing Delivery Lines into Containers
You can manually select delivery lines from the Shipping Transactions form and pack them
into existing containers.
Prerequisites
An LPN must be available for packing.
The delivery lines must not be currently assigned to another LPN.
Auto-Packing Delivery Lines into Containers
You can select a set of delivery lines from the Shipping Transactions form and automatically
pack them into containers. The items from the delivery lines are automatically packed into
containers based on the container-item relationship. Auto-Packing has two options of packing:
Auto-Pack: This will pack the items of the delivery lines into containers.
Auto-Pack Master: The Auto-Pack Master functionality enables you to auto-pack
delivery line items into containers, and then auto-pack these containers into master

containers such as pallets or railway boxcars. The Auto-Pack option is available in the
Actions menu in the Lines/LPNs tab of the Shipping Transactions form.
Note: In order to use the Auto-Pack Master functionality you must define the container-item
relationship for the container into the master container.
Note: Auto-pack will automatically look at Container-Load Relationships set up for the item
and the detail container. If multiple container-item relationships exist for the same item, the
Preferred setting in the Container-Item Relationships window indicates the default containeritem relationship used for that item.

Packing Workbench

Packing Workbench
Use the Packing Workbench window to split the delivery lines between containers or to pack
sequentially one container at a time to its full capacity. The Packing Workbench window
consists of the following:
LPNs: This displays the containers and its contents.
Lines: This displays the delivery lines.
Available Capacity: This section displays the available capacity to be filled-in in the
containers.
Item Total: This displays the total weight and volume of the delivery lines in all the
selected containers. As the containers and delivery lines are selected or deselected in the
LPNs and Lines tab respectively, the total net weight and volume in this section is
recalculated.
Note: The item total is calculated only if Product Items field is set to Weight and Volume
in Oracle Inventory.
Packing Mode: The packing of items can be packed into the containers using two
methods. They are as follows:

Copyright Oracle, 2007. All rights reserved.

Shipping Execution Setup


Chapter 10 - Page 95

- Full: You can fully pack one LPN and then proceed to pack the next LPN. When
packing multiple lines into multiple LPNs, the packing is performed one container at
a time. The first delivery line is packed into the first container until the container is
full or the line is completely packed. If the line is completely packed, then the next
line is packed into the same container until the container is full. If the LPN is fully
packed before the line is completed (in situation where only a partial quantity fits in
the container) then the line is split so that the split line now fills up the first container
and the remaining quantity of the original line is packed into the next container. This
is continued until all the lines packed. The remaining lines are left unpacked. A
warning will be issued to inform you that some lines have been left unpacked.
Note: To prevent unintended splitting of a product item when
packaging by weight/volume, define the items physical
attributes in Oracle Inventory as OM indivisible. For
example, you want to prevent the system from packing 9.5
wallets in a box while packing containers full by weight.

- Equal: You can split delivery lines equally between the selected LPNs so that each of
the container consists of equal number of items. In case of multiple lines being
packed into multiple containers, the lines are equally packed depending on the
number of containers available for packing.

Business Events

Business Events
Business events are represented within workflow processes by event activities. By including
event activities in a workflow process, you can model complex processing or
routing logic for business events beyond the options of directly running a predefined function
or sending the event to a predefined recipient.
Business events leverage Oracle Advance Queuing to communicate business events between
systems.
Business events specific to workflow in Oracle Shipping Execution include the following:
Wsh.delivery:
oracle.apps.wsh.delivery.gen.closed: Delivery Closure Event
oracle.apps.wsh.delivery.gen.interfaced: Delivery OM, INV Interface Event

The level and module of any given log message are defined by the programmer who
makes the logging API call to log the message.
Oracle Shipping Debugger Profile Options
There are 6 profile options specific to the Oracle Shipping Debugger:
WSH: Debug File Prefix: Naming Convention for Debug File is <Debug File Prefix
Profile>_sessionid.dbg. If value of profile is null, naming convention is
wsh_<username>_<sessionid>.dbg. Where: <username> is Application user name. If
application context is not established, it will be defaulted to dbuser: <dbusername>.
<sessionid> is Database session id.
WSH: Debug Enabled: Select from the Debug Enabled LOV either YES or NO to activate the
debug feature. The default is NO.
WSH: Debug Module: The Module describes where to find the log message within the code.
This profile indicates that debug messages from only those modules with names beginning
with the profile value will be logged. The naming convention for Module is: <application short
name>.<directory>.<package>.<routine>. <label> e.g. wsh.plsql.WSH_WV_
UTILS.convert_uom.
WSH: Debug Log Directory: The value entered for this profile option must be specified as a
UTL_FILE parameter value.
WSH: Debug Level: The level is a scale specifying the priority of a log message. The level is
the lowest level for which the user wants to see messages. Select from the Debug Level LOV
one of the following.
Valid Values are (in increasing order of priority):
Performance
Statement
Procedure
Event
Exception
Error
Unexpected Error
WSH: Run PL/SQL Profiler: If this profile option is turned on and you are using PL/SQL,
then it collects the performance statistics for the PL/SQL code.

- Reservations are detailed up to the locator level or sub inventory reserved require a
locator
WSH: Internet Proxy URL: This enables the system to access UPS servers for United
Parcel Service Integration. This profile can only be set at the System Administrator.
WSH: Overpicking Enabled: You can set the value of this profile option to Yes to
enable overpicking.
WSH: Pick Release Batch Size: This enables you to change the batch size from 3 to
1000. Any value less than 3 is interpreted as 3 and any value greater than 1000 is
interpreted as 1000.
WSH: Quick Ship Default View: This enables you to determine the default view of the
Quick Ship window.
WSH: Retain ATO Reservations: This enables you to avoid the redundancy of rereserving an item. If set to Yes, then the inventory system retains the reservation and the
reservation status changes from Staged to Unstage, while the delivery line status changes
to Backordered.
WSH: Bulk Batch Size: This profile enables you to specify how many lines are to be
interfaced to Oracle Order Management per call. This enables you to specify the batch size
that is inserted in the Oracle Inventory tables.
WSH: Defer Inventory Process: When this profile option value is set to YES, then
Oracle Inventorys Process Online API call will be deferred. If the value is set to either
NULL or NO, then the process online API will be called in online mode.
Note: No Pick slips can be generated for lines processed as part of Express Pick. The
subinventory where reservation was created (before pick release) will be used for storage of
material and staging. The Staging subinventory and locator entered on the Release Sales Order
window is always ignored.

Shipping Execution and Oracle Transportation Execution across all organizations of a
particular instance.
General Tab
Use the General tab on the Global Shipping Parameters form to define miscellaneous
parameters such as whether or not to enforce ship methods, defer interface, consolidate
backorders, allow future ship dates. You also define the Oracle Workflow settings and the
unit of measure(UOM) defaults for all of your organizations.
- Enforce Ship Method: Select this check box to enforce that a ship method is entered
and recorded for each shipment. This is recommended if your business practices
require a record of the ship method/carrier for each shipment.
- Allow Future Ship Date: If select this check box, you can enter a future date as the
Actual Departure Date while Ship Confirming the delivery. If you do not select this

check box, you cannot enter a future date as the Actual Departure Date while Ship
Confirming the delivery.
- Defer Interface: Select this check box to defer shipping interfaces from initiating
updates to the interface tables. In this case, you must manually run the interface or
schedule the interface to run to update interface tables. For example, if you defer the
Inventory Interface, the inventory tables are not updated until you run the Inventory
Interface in the Shipping Interfaces window. If you do not select this check box the
interfaces are run automatically at Ship Confirmation.
- Consolidate Backordered Lines: Select this checkbox if you want to split delivery
lines to be automatically consolidated as they become backordered. For example, if
you split a line with quantity 10 into 5 lines of quantity 2, then during processing, the
inventory available equals 4 items. In this case, 3 lines will be backordered and
consolidated into 1 line with quantity of 6.
