Exchanging Component Serial Numbers After Original Discrete Job Is Completed And Inv Period (Doc ID 2406720.1)

Last updated on MARCH 07, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle MES for Discrete Manufacturing - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


An Oracle discrete job with a Predefined serial number and associated
serialized components has been completed into inventory. This assembly has
since been issued to another discrete job, to an assembly which is also
serial controlled as Predefined, which, in turn has been issued to a higher
level assembly which has Predefined serial control. All discrete jobs are in
closed status and the inventory period where WIP Completions took place is
now closed.
In downstream use of the completed assembly, it is found that one of the
components of the subassembly needs to be replaced.

Business Need:
A transaction process is needed to enable the swap out the failed component
serial number such that the new serial number is reflected in the serial
genealogy in Oracle Inventory and in Oracle Installed Base, along with the
other components used in the original assembly. It is possible to process
exchange of components to a WO that has been closed and whose inventory
period is closed as well?

If the Inventory period cannot be reopen, what are the alternatives? Does
development know of any transactions or processes which would meet this

1. Allow return of inventory from an assembly with predefined serial control
of a failed component, as part of the rework process, without reference to
the original WO?
2. Allow issue of inventory to same assembly for a new component, as part of
the rework process, without reference to the original WO?
3. Show effect of #1 and #2 switch of components in Installed Base for the
