Overshipped Quantities for RMA's in Order Management

Existing functionality in Order Management allows users to book a (sales order referenced) RMA for a quantity based on the originating ordered quantity. However, businesses may have requirements to book RMAs based on shipped quantities, especially cases of over-shipments, along with the current provision based on ordered quantities.

Release 12.1.1+ provides an option of booking of referenced RMA’s based on the originating sales orders shipped / invoiced quantity, rather than restricting RMA quantities to the ordered quantity. 

A white paper has been written to provide examples and background discussions relating to over-shipped RMAs.  The white paper aids in understanding the option of allowing RMAs to be based on shipped quantities instead of ordered quantities along with their potential business implementation.

The whitepaper can be read and / or downloaded from document:

Pricing Based on Secondary UOM

The term "catch weight product" refers to a class of product (typically food) that cannot be portioned to a predetermined quantity and hence is usually sold in packages of varying quantity. Ex: chicken, meat, flowers, oils, etc.,. Oracle Order Management and Advanced Pricing support the catch weight functionality and provide the flexibility for the business to generate the invoice based on the secondary UOM.

Catch Weight Processing Benefits:

  • Recording of dual units of measure for inventory, sales and invoicing transactions.
  • Definition of a nominal or average weight per item
  • Recording of actual weights at time of shipment
  • Customers can order in one unit of measure such as packages or cases and be invoiced based on per-pound (or Kg or ton) pricing, thus avoiding the ambiguity between the seller and the buyer.

For additional information, read the new Pricing Based on Secondary UOM white paper found on Doc ID 136687.1.
