Does OAT create one asset for two non-serialized instances from two Purchase Orders (Doc ID 2282468.1)

Last updated on JUNE 30, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Asset Tracking - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Process Create Assets: Interface Inventory Transactions to Oracle Assets, performs a merge to two purchase orders and does not display in the workbench header the merged units only takes one of the PO.

Below is the example.

We have a case of item ABC with Lot control and enabled for Install Base

1-We enter a Purchase Order Receipt for item ABC - Lot Z6 -  3 units and asset A1 was created.

2- Then we enter a Misc Receipt of the same item, same Lot (Z6) 2 units.

According to the Oracle Enterprise Install Base documentation (we have R11), you should not create another asset, but you should add both units to asset A1 and make a cost adjustment. However, the system creates another asset, A2.

"Vintage pooling is available for all non-serialized depreciable items. Is added to the existing asset if the year is the same. Receipt date must Be defaulted to the first day of the current fiscal year. However, you can Customize it through client extension. "

We verify the data and find that a new instance was not created, ie the Purchase Order Receipt and the Miscellaneous Receipt correspond to the same instance = 1234, which is correct.

But two assets were created for the same instance which does not coincide with what the documentation indicates.

1-Should you activate some configuration so that for an item with lot control does not create an asset for each receipt of the same lot?

2-If the lot is different but the same item, will you create a new asset or make an adjustment on the existing asset for that category?
