 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
 Is the operation dependency feature (Start to Start - Start to Finish ...) and machine capacity distribution available in oracle manufacturing cloud?
 What are the key differences of features in Process Manufacturing as compared to Discrete Manufacturing?
 Is Project Manufacturing available through Oracle Manufacturing?
 Is it feasible to accurately track Batch Quantity at each work order operation level?
 Are batch resources supported in manufacturing cloud i.e. where resources are modeled by their capacity e.g. Product A volume is 10 cubic meters when in a process for 2 hours, while product B volume is 8 cubic meters when in the same process for 3 hours while process capacity volume is 20 cubic meters?
 Does manufacturing support tooling / production resources?
 Is it feasible to share resources across work centers? If so, is there a way to specify a percentage shared for each work center?
 Is it possible to copy resources?
 Is there a feature to limit the capacity of manufacturing?
 While completing the last operations of work order using the 'Review Dispatch List' only the Product and Inventory train stops are appearing while the Backflush materials and Autotransact resources train stop does not show up. Is there a setup governing the display of these train stops?
 Is it Possible to Import Resources, Work Areas and Work Centers using FBDI/ADFDI?
 Is there and option to upload the work center, work areas, and production resources using excel upload?
 Why is the option 'Organization is a manufacturing plant' greyed out/locked for update in 'Manage Inventory Organization' parameter setup?
 Can the 'Work Order Starting Number' field in 'Manage Plant Parameters' be modified?
 Can user defined work order status be partioned by organization or between manufacturing and maintenance organization?
 Is it feasible search in Review Dispatch list based on user-defined work order statuses?
 Why does 'Save and Create Another' create a resource in organization different from one to which the org context was changed?
 Tips for troubleshooting manufacturing setups
 Common Issues
 Work order error - The Value of the attribute Completion Subinventory is not valid
 Quantity of Output Item on Work Order is not equal to the Quantity Defined in Process Work Definition
 Cannot edit operation resource after work order creation with error - "java.lang.NullPointerException”
 User-Defined Work Order Status Reverts Back to System-Defined 'Released' Status After Pick Release
 Review Item Supply and Demand UI Does Not Display Work Orders in a User-Defined Status
 Cannot setup perform manufacturing setups
 Error ("Source is not valid") while raising Production Exception
 Defaulting Quantity and Transaction Mode in Plant Parameters Does not Impact Defaulting in Dispatch List
 The Resource Calendar icon is not visible in the work center
 Resources defined in a work center within the work area is visible across another work area.
 Unable to Get Person and Asset Number in Labor/Equipment Type Resource Instance
 Cannot Find an Employees Loaded Through FBDI While Adding a Resource To Resource Instance
