Oracle Order Management now enables you to substitute items on internal sales order lines to manage item availability. Oracle Order Management enables you to substitute items on internal
sales order lines to manage item availability. Source organizations can
decide to ship a substitute item in case the original item is not
available to be shipped. The application supports manual (using Related
Items window) and automatic (using ATP functionality) substitutions.
To substitute an item on ISO, you must ensure that the value of the Item Substitution on Internal Order system parameter is set to a value other than None. In addition, you must ensure to define substitute item relationships and automatic item substitution setup in the system. The application provides the option to not send the notifications when any change happens on the ISO related to quantity, schedule arrival date, or item. You can control these notifications using the OM: Send Notifications of Internal Order Change profile option.
