Global Purchase Order (PO) Consumption Advise Creates Daily PO, Incorrectly Groups Invoices By Transaction Date, Need By Month (Doc ID 2096700.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 13, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Inventory Management - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Global blanket purchase agreement (BPA) are creating purchase orders (POs) and invoices for each transaction date.

Note: Global blankets act different than non-global (local) agreements. A global blanket generates purchase orders while a local (non-global) generates releases. The releases also work differently with a profile option to control if they summarize results or have daily, individual amounts using the profile option "INV: Summarize consumption releases by Need By Date". This profile is not used for global agreements.


What is working
Local blankets work correctly grouping transactions together based on a profile option.

Expected Behavior
Expect global blankets to generate releases once a month

Steps
1. Create consumption on day 1, 10, 20, 30.
2. Run create consumption.
3. See invoices created for day 1, 10, 20, 30.
* Expect 1 invoice for all 4 transaction dates.

Business Impact
Confusing to suppliers to get 30 invoices one for each day of month.
Want all grouped together on one invoice per consumption run.
