Asset Tracking: How to Capitalize Serialized Normal Items Through Sales Order Shipment
By LuciaC-Oracle on Apr 07, 2014
The Oracle Asset Tracking product supports various transactional flows to capitalize a physical asset's (item instance) cost into a fixed asset at an appropriate point of its eligibility. Depreciable items (aka Capitalize on Receipt or COR items) make the item eligible for capitalization at the point of receipt transaction whereas Normal items (aka Capitalize on Issue or COI items) make the item eligible for capitalization when the instance is put in service or when issued to a field location.
In environments such as Equipment rentals and leases, there is a need for Oracle Asset Tracking to initiate capitalization when a normal item is shipped out to the customer. As a result, the existing Loaner flow functionality in Oracle Asset Tracking module has been extended to provide an out of the box functionality to capitalize of Normal Items when they are shipped to customer locations. This functionality is in R12.2 and in R12.1.3 via Patch 17181028:R12.CSE.B: Consolidated Patch For Oracle Asset Tracking.
In Doc ID 1623821.1 a detailed test case is described, explaining the business flow and giving the necessary application setups and step-by-step process.
