Learn More About EBS R12.2

Last fall, we released Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2, (Press Release).  EBS 12.2 includes new product functionality, new Fusion Middleware and database components, and introduces new tools for installing, configuring, and maintaining E-Business Suite environments.

In fact, there are hundreds of new features, as EBS 12.2 includes significant enhancements across the integrated suite of business applications spanning enterprise resource planning, human capital management, and supply chain management.

Recently we sat down with Jeanne Lowell, VP of Strategy for Oracle’s EBS, to hear more about E-Business Suite 12.2.  Watch this video to hear Jeanne summarize the key strengths of Oracle EBS 12.2 and how it can help you cut downtime to minutes, increase your flexibility and your scalability! 

ASCP Enhanced Exception Management in R12.2.2

Advanced Supply Chain Planning (ASCP) R12.2.2 introduces enhanced functionality for Exception Management.  Prior to this enhancement, ASCP generated all exceptions for all items and resources with attached exception sets. You can now control which exceptions ASCP generates, thus saving the computational burden of generating unneeded exceptions.

A new window called Exception Group allows you to select specific exceptions from a list of available exceptions. You can save the Exception Group and attach it to plans using a new plan option field. When the plan is run, ASCP generates only the exceptions listed in the Exception Group.

For more information regarding Enhanced Exception Management in Release 12.2, please refer to the Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning Release Notes for Release 12.2.2, Doc ID 1504893.1.
