Generating Landed Cost Management Charges using Custom Pricing Attributes

Learn how to incorporate Custom Pricing Attributes into Landed Cost Management through a new whitepaper. 

The new application, Landed Cost Management (LCM), enables exact shipment charges to be applied to incoming receipts. These charges are calculated using the Freight and Special Charges functionality from Advanced Pricing within the Pricing Transaction Entity of “Purchasing”.

Advanced Pricing is very flexible in that custom attributes can be defined to derive specific charges. The way that Landed Cost Management builds these attributes is different from the processing for Advanced Pricing with Purchasing.

The whitepaper can be downloaded from document Oracle Advanced Pricing White Papers, Doc ID 136687.1.

How Can One Disable Continuous Price Breaks in R12?

Enhancement Request (ER) Bug 4061138 - SUPPORT FOR CONTINUOUS PRICE BREAKS brought about the continuous price break functionality.

This functionality is also used in Service Contracts and Transportation.   However, not everyone wanted or needed the ability to use continuous price breaks.

Now, R12 has been enhanced to allow the ability to disable continuous price lists.  This new functionality is made available and controlled by the profile "QP:Continuous Price Breaks".  Additional information regarding the profile setting; as well as, what patches are needed for this functionality can be found in:

Service Items Can Now be Promotional Get Items

As of R12.2.2, you can now add a service item (for example, warranty for a specific period) as a ‘promotional get item’ for the parent item.  After you define a line level promotional modifier for an item (for example, a PC) in the Define Modifier window, you can add a service item (for example, warranty for a specific period) as a ‘promotional get item’ for the parent item.

Use the Get region in the Define Modifier Details window of the parent item to specify the following for the promotional get item:

  • The service item quantity.
  • The UOM, which the application uses as the primary UOM for conversion.
  • The duration of the service program such as 1, 2, or more.
  • The period of the service program such as day, month, or year.
  • The percent price for the service item.

Please refer to Oracle Advanced Pricing Release Notes for Release 12.2.2, Doc ID 1582797.1, for additional details on this new feature.
