Manage your Supply Chain for a specific project by using Project Driven Supply Chain Oracle Cloud Application 20B


Any Project Driven Business (Construction, Event Management, Etc.) needs the ability to perform their supply chain activities in the context of projects, whenever they must procure contract-specific goods and services of a specific quality on a specified schedule and budget. If you are a manufacturing or a service company delivering goods and services on a project, you might also want to invoice your customers based on terms of the contract, rather than the cost of goods and services.

Cloud computing is evolving day-by-day which helps the companies to automate their business irrespective of industries. From that footstep, Oracle Project-Driven Supply Chain Solution (20B) provides a full-fledged end to end ERP solution to facilitate all your business needs.

Perks of using Project Driven Supply Chain

SEGREGATE AND MANAGE PROJECT-SPECIFIC INVENTORY

If You often procure materials specifically for projects at project-specific price quotes. Then you need to keep a track of materials and their valuation for the project.

RECEIVE PROJECT-SPECIFIC SUPPLY

You may need the ability to automate the receiving process of project-specific supply into inventory as project material to prevent comingling

Note: Project Details can be captured in Receipt, Inspect, and Delivery Transaction

PICK PROJECT-SPECIFIC INVENTORY

To prevent the comingling of inventory across projects and tasks, you need the ability to enforce picking from project-specific or common inventory.

SHIP PROJECT-SPECIFIC INVENTORY

For the integrity of the project-specific supply chain, you have to ensure that inventories from a specific project are shipped against project-specific sales or transfer orders.

TRANSFER ORDER BETWEEN PROJECT-SPECIFIC INVENTORY

In a project-driven supply chain, you need the ability to transfer project-owned material from the point of storage to the point of use on-demand and ensure that it remains segregated while on the move.

PROJECT TO PROJECT TRANSFER

It allows users to transfer the Stocks from One Project to Another Project without any hindrance.

PROJECT SPECIFIC ON-HAND AVAILABILITY

SKU On-Hand is visible to Inventory User based on Project wise to provide a better insight on availability.
