Inventory question
#1
Hello Experts,

Please help me with the following

My Banking client has one Headoffice in Hyderabad and its branches(150+) are spread in rest of India. They are trying to implement Oracle R12 and got the license for most of the Finance modules(GL,AP,CM,AR,FA etc)
However they got license only for purchasing module. As per them, whatever they procure it will be consumed and they dont have a concept of inventory storing.

They want three distinct features to be defined in the system
Maeterial Code,Vendor Code and Location Code
How many inventory orgs is feasible for such business? Do we need to create 1 inventory org for each branch as they are asking specifically for location code?
or Can we have one inventory(head office) and rest all of the branches to be defined as subinventory(location name embedded in subinventory name)? Im bit confused here.

In addition to it, for purchase orders, the requirement is as follows
"PO will have one standard default page which will cover standard terms and conditions and same
will remain unchanged for all the PO’s. Another page should be for General Terms and Conditions which could be amendable"

Your guidance is required and is always valued

Thanks,
VB

the concept behind Organizations describe distinct entities in your company and may include separate manufacturing facilities, warehouses, distribution centers, and branch offices.

Two flavors of inventory organizations are found in Oracle Applications. They are defined the same, and both are assigned a Ledger (set of books), a legal entity organization, an operating unit organization, and a location. An item master organization is used for item number maintenance and validation.
This master organization serves as a data repository storing items and item attributes, master level categories and category sets, master level cross references, and numerous data defaults. On-hand balances, inventory movements, and other on-going inventory activities are not performed in an item master organization.

Generally, the master organization is used as the validation organization for Purchasing and Order Entry. It is recommended that a single item master organization be defined, even in multiple organization, multiple Ledgers environments.
