Return Material To Vendors Using R12.2's New Functionality

In R12.2, now you can return material to vendors from any Organization (org). The new enhanced functionality allows users to do the following:
• Create a return order for returned lines.
• Return material to vendors from any Organization.
– For example, If an item is received in org M1 and is moved to org M2, it can be returned to the supplier from M2 itself. In the Returns form, the user can enter the receipt org as M1 and enter the original receipt number of org M1. User will be shown receipt details of org M1 and he can return the material from M2 itself.
• Users will be able to create returns without referencing a PO or receipt i.e. return against no document.
–E.g. user can return a damaged hard drive of a laptop to the vendor even though the original PO was created for the laptop. Users will need to enter the item, quantity, supplier and other details in receipt form.

Note: This functionality is available only from R12.2 above and will not be backported to prior versions.

The simple data flow model:

Overshipped Quantities for RMA's in Order Management

Existing functionality in Order Management allows users to book a (sales order referenced) RMA for a quantity based on the originating ordered quantity. However, businesses may have requirements to book RMAs based on shipped quantities, especially cases of over-shipments, along with the current provision based on ordered quantities.

Release 12.1.1+ provides an option of booking of referenced RMA’s based on the originating sales orders shipped / invoiced quantity, rather than restricting RMA quantities to the ordered quantity. 

A white paper has been written to provide examples and background discussions relating to over-shipped RMAs.  The white paper aids in understanding the option of allowing RMAs to be based on shipped quantities instead of ordered quantities along with their potential business implementation.

The whitepaper can be read and / or downloaded from document:

RMA Overshipped Quantities

Existing functionality in Order Management, allows users to book a (sales order referenced) RMA for a quantity based on the originating ordered Quantity. However, businesses have requirements to book RMA™s based on shipped quantities, especially in the case of over-shipments, in addition to the current provision based on ordered quantities.

Now in Release 12.1.1+, users are provided with an additional option of raising RMAs based on the shipped quantity, if the Invoicing basis is set to 'ship quantity'.

This white paper provides working examples and background discussions relating to this new Order Management Release 12.1.1+ feature to aid in its' understanding and potential business implementation.

RMA Calculates Tax as a Positive Value

Are you seeing positive tax values on Return Material Authorizations (RMAs) and negative tax values on the actual Credit Memo? 

If this is occurring, the calculated order total will be incorrect.  Also if you are using credit checking with exposure, the exposure calculation will also be calculated incorrectly.  Which may cause an incorrect credit hold.

If you are seeing positive tax values on RMAs and negative tax values on the actual Credit Memo, you will need to review Doc ID 1620464.1  RMA Calculates Tax as a Positive Value instead of Negative Value.    

The note explains what needs to be verified and any necessary actions.  Please note this is currently only occurring in version 12.2.

Updated 04-Sep-14: amended incorrect product version.

Enable Configurator for Return Orders

With release 12.2.4 for non-referenced RMAs, Order Management will allow you to configure the model from Sales Order / Quick Sales Order windows. This is only allowable when profile  OM: Enable Configuration UI for RMA is set to Yes.  All selected options must be returnable, as well as all included items.

Order Management explodes included items and creates options and option classes in a way similar to outbound orders. The application creates all selected components with same line number but different option/component number. 

Additionally, the application does not allow re-configuration and/or deletion of any line if any line in the same configuration is received, fulfilled, closed, cancelled, or split.

For additional information refer to the Oracle Order Management Release Notes for Release 12.2.4 (Doc ID 1906521.1).
