Allow Assemble-To-Order (ATO) Items in Pick-To-Order (PTO) Models and Kits

This feature supports the business scenario of including mandatory ATO items in PTO Models and Kits in the customer's orders, thereby enriching the Order Fulfillment process with additional functionality.

Currently, while ATO items are supported as optional/non-mandatory items in PTO models, they are not supported as included/mandatory items in PTO Models or Kits. In Release 12.2, ATO items are supported as included/mandatory items in PTO Models as well as Kits. Thus, for the ATO items that are identified as included/mandatory items in the Bill of Materials of the PTO Model or Kit, the application selects the ATO flag and populates the corresponding ATO attributes at the time of sales order line creation.

To enable this functionality, you must set the value of the profile options, OM: Allow Standard ATO Items as PTO/Kit Included Components and BOM: Allow ATO item in a KIT or as mandatory in a PTO Model to Yes at the site level. 


For more information regarding this new ATO in PTO Models and Kits functionality in Release 12.2, please refer to the Oracle Order Management Release Notes for Release 12.2.2, Doc ID 1377743.1.


ER Implemented - New Supplier Update API's Supported in R12 Oracle Payables!

Well we have great news for you! 

In 11i there were API's (Update_Vendor, Update_Vendor_Site and Update_Vendor_Contact) but they were not supported in R12 due to integration with Multiple product teams. The reason being was that the entities Supplier, Sites and Contacts had representations in multiple products like TCA, IBY, ZX etc and all these representations needed to be in sync.

However, most of our customers have huge volumes of supplier data which they need to be able to control programmatically so the fact that they no longer had access to these API's was frustrating.

It was requested through Enhancement Request Bug 17575099: ENHANCEMENT FOR SUPPORT OF SUPPLIER UPDATE APIS that Oracle Payables provides API's for updating Supplier / Supplier Sites / Supplier Contacts in AP_VENDOR_PUB_PKG in R12.

Well, this functionality is now available and the following new APIs had been created: 

                      - Update_Vendor_Public
                      - Update_Vendor_Site_Public
                      - Update_Vendor_Contact_Public

*** Note: These are the only procedures supported to update suppliers, sites or contacts.

We are sure that this ER being implemented will be welcome news for many.  Enjoy!
