    Purchasing fixed asset

    user587041

      Hi,

       

      I need to know how do we integrate fixed assets with purchasing in Oracle EBS Purchasing 12.1.3

       

      My client requires to purchase fixed assets defined in Oracle FA through purchase order in oracle purchasing.

       

      How do we achieve this ?

       

      Your help is highly appreciated.

       

      Kind regards

          Hi Muhammed,

          In the Item Mater, Purchasing TAB..make sure you input the "Asset Category".

           

          Define Asset Category for each capital item and assign the Asset or CIP Clearing account as the Expense Account.

          This way you can make a PO for the asset item.

          Even for the combination of category and item qty, you can do a PO without an item.

          General Flow will be like this.

          PO-->AP-->Projects-->FA-->GL

           

          Thanks

            Thank you very much arif..

             

            Please let me know do we add this item as asset in fixed asset after the purchase process is complete and we have performed receipts in oracle inventory too..

             

            Do we need to perform asset creation through asset addition in AP ?

             

            You mentioned that the general flow is PO-->AP-->Projects-->FA-->GL but we do not currently have project running.. how does it happen in this case

              Hi Muhammed,

              Need to create a Item with asset category and relavent account.

              Receive the items and create AP invoice...then run create mass additions interface so that AP invoice details will flow to FA.

              in case of non-project module PO-->AP-->FA-->GL.

               

              ping me your email..will send a good PPT on the integration part.

               

              Thanks

                Thank you very much indeed for this helpful answer.

                 

                My email id is: noumanonline@yahoo.com

                 

                I also need to know if we need to apply services to that item to increase that fixed asset's cost or useful life, can we achieve it through making a service PO for that FA item ? if yes how do we achieve it.

                 

                I do really appreciate your replies.

                  FA,PO and AP integration is sent to your inbox...pls check.

                   

                  I am not sure as to how we can increase the fixed asset cost thru service...

                  but from PO stand point we can pick up "line type" as service and attach FA item/Category.

                  This way the whole date will flow from PO,AP and then to FA.

                    I thank you very much for the information and help.

                     

                    I would like to confirm if we can somehow populate the list of fixed assets defined in FA modules in purchase order line at the place of item code so that we can directly buy for existing fixed assets.

                     

                    Regards,

                      How to add line type of " services " in order to let it fetch the FA categories rather than inventory categories ?

                        Hi,

                        We have a default "Service" line type in PO Setups...enable the same.

                        Also in the same line type setup attach the Asset Category and save the record.

                        by this way if services line type is selected then Asset Category will be populated and can be approved.

                         

                        Thanks
