The purpose of this bulletin is to provide Oracle Customers with a good understanding of a sample Testflow for a Simple Back-to-Back (B2B) Order Scenario.


This document helps the Support Engineers and Oracle Customers to understand a sample Testflow for a Simple Back-to-Back (B2B) Order Scenario.

Testing and screenshots of this page are based on a instance.

Overview of the B2B process:

1. Customer orders items (OM).
2. Purchase those items from the supplier (PO) and receive them into the warehouse.
3. Ship those items to the customer (OM).

The B2B process automates the creation of a supply order (PO) when a sales order is booked. The supply order is hard pegged (hard-reservation) to the sales order that it is supplying so that once the PO is received, the items are not inadvertently taken by another order or demand. Where the sales order line is within the process, can be visible  at all times so that customer service inquiries can be answered. This process is used for items that are not typically stocked nor manufactured. In an environment where lead times are often only a matter of 24 hours, the B2B process improves efficiency of the three steps above, by closely linking the Sales Order and the Purchase Order together.

Also called the supply-to-order process.
