First Article Inspections

This video shows how we created a First Article Inspection process at one of my clients. We designed the process from scratch as, although Oracle says in their Quality User Guide that the module can be used for these inspections, we could never figure out how. Oracle Support couldn’t tell us either. Everything is built with personalizations […]

Auto-hiding the Receipt Header

If you enter header information on all of your receipts, having the header pop up when you enter the Receipts form makes sense. If you don’t – and I’ve found this to be the case for the vast majority of my clients – then the pop-up is an annoyance. This is a personalization we built […]

A Service Request and many trace files later, Support let us know that were were experiencing intended functionality. The shortage checking functionality considers total on-hand and does not consider projects at all. So, if you have none […]

Our original solution was to create two inventory organizations, one standard cost and one average cost. The […]

Non-Reservable, Non-Nettable Locators

Manufacturing would complete into this locator, then the Stockroom folks could transfer it from there to a more permanent storage. We found that […]

RVTII-060 Errors

This has to be one of the most useless and annoying messages we run into in Oracle Applications! You get it when you try to do a receipt and the Receiving Transaction Processor doesn’t know how to handle it. I’ve found that it’s possible to troubleshoot the issue without logging an SR. All it takes […]
