Jobs on multiple level

Hi All,

i need some help on the viewing the production plans at multiple BOM level. Here's my issue:

Part ABCD is a Finished part and to make it we need, "XYZ123" part.
To make XYZ123 we need EFGH123 part
To make EFGH123 we need 12345.

The BOM is also defined in the same way one under another, as per the production schedule we Make to order using (ATO - Assemble to Order) process were we can identify the Sales order line part and associate (automatically creates a work order) it with the work order.

The issue is:

We need to create the whole BOM on order, means to make ABCD

we have to make: XYZ123, EFGH123 and 12345 and this must or shall be able to track under the Job number associated to ABCD. Is there any standard way in Oracle or out of box functionality we can user to fulfill our requirement.

Thanks,
Sameet

    Oracle WIP does not have the functionality to capture the parent job number like Oracle EAM allows.

    You may setup a Discrete job DFF to capture the parent job number.

    Thanks,

    Thanks PS, for your reply

    Do we have some reference for setting up the same like any setup document or metalink note.?

    Hi Sameet,

    Go to Inventory Superuser or similar responsibility.
    Navigate: Setup -> Flexfields -> Descriptive -> Segments
    Query for the Application - "Work in Process" and Title "Discrete Job".
    Setup DFF.

    Thanks,

    PS.

    Is the "EFGH123 " stocked anywhere in the warehouse? If NO then you can make this items supply type as Phantom and create a single jobs and all be present as components on the job (leaving phantom).
    This kind of scenario typically happens when you have by products which directly supplied to a different production line without putting them to stock.
