What is the Mass Edit Enhancement to Set Cost Controls for CST_ITEM_COSTS (Doc ID 286323.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 12, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Cost Management - Version 11.5.8 to 12.1.3 [Release 11.5 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The Set Cost Controls concurrent program is a new Mass Edit option.

Users can run it on a range of items or categories to update the based on rollup flag,
the defaulted flag, and/or the lot size in cst_item_costs.

The update options allow the fields to be explicitly set, or to be copied from another cost type
in CIC or from the item definitions.

This enhancement will be most useful in situations where customers copy costs across organizations where the item is assembled in the source org (based on rollup = yes) and purchased by the
destination org (based on rollup = no).

In order for the costs not to be deleted by a cost rollup in the destination org (since no BOM exists for it), the user needs to update the based on rollup flag back to no. This utility will be useful for that purpose.
