Clean Your Supply/Demand

So you noticed that there is inconsistent data in the Supply/Demand form (INVDVDSD) for a specific item/organization? No need to worry. We have some suggestions that may clear things up.

First, check out note, INVDVDSD - Troubleshooting Issues With The Inventory Supply/Demand Form (Doc ID 286755.1). Then download script 'INVDVDSD_data_check.sql' and run it in sqlplus for the item and organization.



After running 'INVDVDSD_data_check.sql', review the output for data corruption or issues for your specific item/organization. The script output will show different areas that that may need clean-up.

You can also further troubleshoot Supply/Demand by using note, Troubleshooting the Item Supply/Demand Form (Doc ID 404459.1).

As always, use Support tools and diagnostics to help keep you data sparkling clean.

BOM Calendar - Is Your MRP Bucket Half Full?

Oracle Master Resource Planning (MRP) uses ‘bucketing’ to help keep control of forecasts for demand for a particular product. The forecasts estimate future demand for items using any combination of historical, statistical, and intuitive forecasting techniques.

The forecasts can be gathered together in Time Buckets. You can forecast with daily buckets in the short term, weekly buckets in the midterm, and periodic buckets in the longer term.

Do you you need to manage your buckets in Calendar Months? What if you expect a bucket to ‘end-date’ on March 31 – but if March 31 is a Wednesday, and the Workday Calendar for “March” runs until Friday April 2? Then requirements from April 1 and 2 will be included in the “March” bucket. Some customers and users want to more closely link the BOM Workday Calendar to the common Calendar in use around the world.

If you would like to manage your buckets in Calendar months, we invite you to vote on Idea 'MRP Bucketing Should Happen For The Monthly BOM Calendar' in the EBS Logistics Communities.



You can also review note, It Is Not Possible To Setup Calendar For Monthly Bucketing (Doc ID 2027380.1).

If you'd like more information on using EBS Communities for Enhancement Requests (Ideas), see note, Oracle E-Business Suite Product Enhancement Request to My Oracle Support Community FAQ (Doc ID 1584210.1).

The power to request enhancements is in your hands, so don't forget to vote if you'd like MRP bucketing to happen for a monthly BOM Calendar.
