Is There a Way to Plan in Potent Units Without Making the Potent Unit the Primary UOM? (Doc ID 2582012.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 27, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Process Manufacturing Process Planning - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


We have several products produced with varying Potency values, and the calculations are maintained in Lot Specific UOM conversion, with the primary UOM being a volume UOM and the secondary UOM being Doses. When such products are planned in the ASCP system, we are expecting demand and supply calculations to take potency value into considerations so that supply planners will know how much more/less volume to be produced in the following weeks.

Example :

Item A, standard conversion is 1 L (primary) = 1000 Doses (secondary)
Lot L1-> Qty 100 L (Primary) -> 100000 Doses(Secondary).
After Potency is calculated, a Lot Specific UOM Conversion is created so that the onhand becomes:
Lot L1-> Qty 100 L (Primary) -> 200000 Doses(Secondary).

When Planning runs for Item A, we are expecting inventory beginning balance to be 50 L as the item has high potency, so that demand and supply calculate accordingly.

Please note that we don't want to adjust the primary quantity in inventory, as it will impact costings.
