Medical Device Manufacturer Changes Oracle® E-Business Suite Inventory Costing with Software
The company would have had to cancel orders, revoke invoices, and empty and replace the subinventories if they used the Oracle-provided functionality.
- At times the same account value was used for all the costing accounts (material handling, overhead processing, material overhead, outside processing, and expense) and at other times that same account was used only for one of the costs.
- They considered the time-consuming and error-prone option of removing the items from each subinventory, changing the account, and then putting the items back into the subinventories. It would have involved cancelling all invoices and orders for each of the subinventories as well as the loss of historical data.
- Changes would have to be coordinated across regions, with a number of people involved over a significant time.
