Last updated on MARCH 26, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Complex Maintenance, Repair, & Overhaul - Version 11.5.10.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Find that sometimes the description on Master Items is changed for the items which are assigned to Unit Configuration (UC). However, Unit Configuration always displays the old value of the item description.  Even when a new instance of the same item is created and assigned to the Unit Configuration, still item description on the Unit Configuration does not get changed.

Expect to see the current item description on unit configuration since the item description is an important field, which stores valuable information about the item.

Steps:
1. (R) Advanced Service Online User
(N) Configuration Management : Unit Configuration
Search Unit
Find an item which is associated to a position on a Unit Configuration
e.g. Item: EM_TRS, Description: EM_TRS

2. (R) Inventory
(N) Items : Master Items:
Search for item EM_TRS
Change the description of the item from “EM_TRS” to “new description for TRS”

3. (R) Advanced Service Online User
(N) Configuration Management : Unit Configuration > Search Unit:
Search for EM-TCB-55.
Problem: Item description on the same position still displays EM_TRS. Item description on UC is not synchronized with description on Master Items

4. (R) Advanced Service Online User
(N) Configuration Management : Create Product:
Create a new instance for item EM_TRS.

5. (R) Advanced Service Online User
(N) Configuration Management : Search Product:
Check the description for instances of item EM_TRS.
Item description of the instances are all displayed correctly as “new description for TRS” on Install Base.

6. (R) Advanced Service Online User
(N) Configuration Management > Unit Configuration > Search Unit:
Search for EM-TCB-55.

7. Remove the old instance from the position, attach the newly created instance to the position.
Problem: Item description on the same position still displays EM_TRS. Item description on UC is not synchronized with description on Master Items
