    Inventory Picking Rules

    user9090561
      Hi
      This is in Oracle EBS 11i.

      We defined the inventory picking rule as Lot Control = None, Order Revision = Null, Subinventory = Null, Locator = Null.
      What is the default logic that Oracle picks up when allocating inventory to Pick Move Orders in this case? We checked multiple scenarios and it appeared random

      Next we defined a new inventory picking rule as Lot Control = Receipt Date, Order Revision = Null, Subinventory = Null, Locator = Null.
      We assigned this to the item but then when we allocated the inventory to Pick Move orders, the allocation did not change from the earlier case when the Lot Control was None.

      Any idea.

      Thanks

          Just to check..in case..have u enabled the rule and assignment?
          See if there are multiple rules assigned to that particular org..may cause a problem

            Yes, I have defined the picking rule and assigned it at the parameter setup , under the ATP, Pick, Item-Sourcing tab.

            No, there is only one rule defined.

            Is there any other step? I guess this is it.

              After defining the rule have you enabled it? then after saving it...have you assigned it to a org by clicking assignment button??

                Hi
                There is no place to enable the rule. All the rules once defined are enabled.

                Also once you've defined it, the only places you can attach is at the item level or at the inventory parameter level.

                I am talking about 11i and non WMS org.

                I guess you are either talking about WMS org or R12.
