E1: 31B and 40G: Introducing E1 9.2 Inventory Commitment Enhancement In Blend and Grower Management (Doc ID 2356412.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 22, 2019

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Blend Management - Version 9.2 and later
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Grower Management - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


JD Edwards EnterpriseOne has been enhanced to provide inventory commitment functionality in the Grower and Blend Management product.

Grower and Blend operations that use additives, sprays, or consumables now validate the availability of that inventory. Because an inventory commitment is created at the
time the operation is created, buyers now have visibility into inventory that is running low and users are assured that the inventory and lot is available at the time they are
executing the operation. When the operation is closed, inventory is relieved ensuring that on-hand inventory remains accurate. If the items used are non-stocked items or
for Grower Spray operations that are not internally supplied, availability checking, updating commitments, and updating on-hand inventory will be disabled.

This enhancement is introduced in E1 9.2 and provides the following new functionality:

1. During operation entry or edit, for operations that are at status Active or Actual, generate a warning if there is insufficient inventory to meet the quantity used by
the operation, but allow operation to be saved.

2. Issue a soft commitment (to primary location) if the item is entered without a Location/Lot or if the primary location is selected.

3. Issue a hard commitment (to secondary location) if Location/Lot are entered.

4. When the operation status is changed to "CLOSED" the commitments are cleared out and the item ledger and G/L will be updated as has always
occurred when an operation is closed.

5. Prevent operations to be Closed (status CLOSED) if the inventory is insufficient (do not allow inventory to go negative when an operation is closed).

This new functionality is introduced E1 9.2 Bug 26431977 - Inventory Commitments Of Additives And Consumables  (ESU JN14473 or E1 9.2 Update UN2).


The enhancement also changed the Winery Constants (P31B13) data item (alias) INVUP field title and glossary text:

  New Data Dictionary Glossary: Indicates whether the method by which the Blend Management system will update ERP inventory for dry goods.

  New Data Dictionary Glossary: If enabled, inventory availability checking will validate that there are sufficient on-hand quantities of the inventory item (spray, additive or consumable) used in Grower and Blend operations. Inventory is soft committed to the primary location when a lot/location is not specified. Inventory is hard committed when a secondary lot/location is specified. A warning/error message will be issued when an operation being closed creates negative on-hand inventory.  When inventory availability checking is first enabled, you should run the Repost Work Orders (R3190) program. The Repost Work Orders (R3190) program recalculates the commitments for additives, sprays and consumables.

IMPORTANT: The original enhancement Bug fix (Bug 26431977, ESU JN14473  and Update UN2) did NOT include the necessary glossary change instruction document link. This resulted in the INVUP data item description and glossary to not get updated to the new description and glossary text in "language" environments. The U section of the Bug should have had the following template applied:
Instructions:  Go to the following Link - Software Update Guide - JD Edwards Visual Compare for UDC Descriptions and Glossary Tool. .
This link to Oracle docs provide directions to run a program to compare and accept DD glossary changes.  Follow the process described in the document to update the glossary item change to INVUP data item.
