Oracle suggests to an inventory organization if you use Purchasing. You can associate each of your Purchasing operating units with one inventory item master organization. When you associate your Purchasing operating unit with an inventory organization, items you define in this organization become available in Purchasing. You can only choose an inventory organization that uses the same set of books as your Purchasing operating unit. Do not change the Inventory Organization after you have already assigned one to Purchasing.
If you are using OM for the same OU where you define AP, I guess you would need Inventory org as well, orders cannot be shipped without having Inventory org defined
Hi Krishna - thanks for the update to my message.
1) The main reason for setting up the new Operating Unit is because we want another Primary Ledger with a different currency.
2) I saw your suggestion that I could associate the new Operating Unit Purchasing setups with the item master, however this inventory org is associated with the original Primary Ledger. Therefore, I don't think this solution is possible.
3) It still seems strange to me that a services ONLY company who wants to purchase expenses or just Payables for processing expenses will need to define an Inventory Org.
I am still pushing Support to see if they can come up with a better solution.
