Controlling Receipt of Serialized Items in RMA's

Posted by Donna Martin

Serial numbers are a one-to-one relationship in inventory.  You can only have ONE item number-serial number combination existing in Oracle.  Since there is no validation for revision, lot or serial numbers against inventory tables in Order management at the time the RMA is entered, it is difficult to control what is received.  Sometimes the serial number on the items returned by a customer could be different than what the return was intended for.  Oracle provides functionality to control what serial numbers are received into inventory against an RMA.  This is an excellent way to add control so you can keep your inventory balanced and your records straight.  This is especially helpful if product is consigned product, or if you are trying to tie the return to a warranty or specific Sales Order for credit purposes.

Vacation Rules Are Not Just for Vacation Anymore!

Posted by Donna Martin


Did you know that the “Vacation Rule” functionality in Oracle is simply a method for automatically forwarding requests for approval from one recipient to another?  Similar to setting up an “out of office” email response, Oracle will forward requests for workflow approvals to another recipient as designated in the Vacation Rule.
