How to bypass the Cost Management and do costing and accounting activities in Project costing Overheads (Doc ID 2501011.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 22, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Project Manufacturing - Version 12.2.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Cost Management or Projects for Costing/Overheads with CMRO, WIP, BOM, INV, EAM, PS, OM, ASCP, PJM

Need to move the Costing, Accounting and Burdening functions to Projects vs Cost Management.

Generally if you are running Cost Management then the costing (Material and Resource Transactions) and overheads should be done in Cost Management.

Can Oracle provide a recommendation to go the projects route instead of Cost Management and cost collection. This all can be done in Projects so how do we essentially disable Costing.

Need to do all the costing, burdening and accounting for Labor and material and overheads in Core Project Costing not Project Costing ?

From Cost Management User Guide "Overview of Project Manufacturing

You can cost all project-related manufacturing transactions, then capture these costs and transfer them to Oracle Projects. You can associate items and manufacturing business processes with specific projects, and optionally tasks, to track quantity and cost information through these business processes. Project Manufacturing costing enables you to process and cost material, labor, and associated overheads against a specific project or a group of projects for a specific customer.

The question is can we deploy Project Costing and bring all costs into CORE Oracle Project Costing UNCOSTED and UNBURDENED and cost the items or resources and apply burdens etc. in Project Costing and Not in PJM/Cost Management?

Need to bypass the Cost Management Costing and accounting and do those activities in Project costing
