Plan| The Right Strategy
Building a Business Case To Upgrade
R12 Upgrade Key Questions …
• Would you like to reduce reliance on IT staff for report creation?
• Are you satisfied with the number of days it takes to close at period end?
• Do you have a large number of sets of books?
• Do you want to improve reconciliation and reporting at period end?
• Would you like to increase the efficiency of your tax and payment
processing?
• Are you required to maintain multiple accounting representations?
• Would you like auditable and transparent accounting entries accessible with
full drilldown?
• Would you like to gain efficiency with processing and reporting across
operating units?
• Would you like to implement shared service centers?
Why Upgrade to R12
Straight Talk from Customers
“We have 60 sets of books and see tremendous efficiencies with running processes
across these sets of books using Ledger Sets.”
“Ability to issue one payment instruction to the bank for payments of invoices in
multiple operating units was viewed as a huge benefit from the user community.”
“Multi-Org Access Control (MOAC) will definitely reduce the workload and the number
of people performing process related tasks. The users are very excited and the
benefits of MOAC were readily visible to them.”
“The ability to access multiple operating units with a single responsibility can simplify
SOX compliance monitoring.”
“The functionality offered with Advanced Global Intercompany System (AGIS),
specifically the creation of physical invoices to be created for I/C transactions in Payables
and Receivables eliminates many customizations in this area.”
“Centralization of subledger accounting rules would minimize set up and maintenance,
providing greater financial control, and enforcing a consistent approach for true global
accounting.”
“Banks, taxes, payments, and accounting – everything that becomes centralized will
bring tremendous efficiencies to our organization.”

Report Manager
Web ADI
Consolidation - Chart of Accounts Mapping
17
Legal Entities
What
A Legal Entity is
an association, corporation, partnership, proprietorship, trust, or individual that
has legal standing in the eyes of law
A legal entity has a legal capacity to
into agreements or contracts, assume obligations, incur and pay debts
Why
Model the legal structure independently of operational structure and accounting
structure
Allow mapping of legal entities to
Accounting Structure – Ledger and balancing segment values
Organizational Structure – Operating Units
Identify legal entity on transactions to enable compliance and support
Legal Reporting – with a plethora of BI Publisher reports
Calculation of Taxes – in the new rules based tax engine (EBTax)
Intercompany – using the Advanced Global Intercompany System
Where A Legal Entity is required in E-Business Suite tax to manage
•
•
•
A legal entity is created – the first step - in
the new Accounting Setup Wizard; and will
be part of the Accounting structure
The legal entity will be associated with the
ledger
Bank Accounts (owns bank accounts)
•
•
Advanced Global Intercompany
System (owns transactions)
E-Business Tax (owns tax
registrations/regimes)
18
Accounting Flexfield Qualifiers
19
Chart of Account – New Qualifiers
• Secondary tracking segment
– Allows to manage Cumulative Translation Adjustment, Retained
Earnings and Gain/Loss accounts for a combination of the
balancing and a secondary segment
• Intercompany
– Allows for automatically balancing transactions between
balancing segment values, both intra- and inter-company
(across legal entities)
• Management segment (R12)
– Allows securing data for reporting by values in a specific
segment (qualified as Management Segment)
20
Ledger and Data Access Sets
• Ledger Sets
– Can be used to group ledgers into a single bucket
– Ledgers MUST have
• Same Chart of Accounts
• Same Calendar and period type combination
– Processes that can be performed in unison on a
ledger set
•
•
•
•
Open/Close periods
Revaluation and Translation
Recurring Journals
Inquiry and Reporting
21
Web ADI
• A new framework has been created to enable
integration with data creation
• This new framework allows data integration
with any Oracle product
• Only few products have pre-delivered
solutions (FA, GL, HR, etc..)
• You can create one for AP or SLA or any other
product
• The Web ADI is faster and only allows data
entry – no reporting
22
Report Manager
• Replaces the capability to generate FSG
reports in Desktop ADI
• Has additional functionality than what was
available in Desktop ADI
• Report Manager
– can store reports output in the database as a static source
– allows access security to be managed within the reports
repository
– allows access to reports via a menu “function”
– allows similar reports to be stored with a “period”
identifier

R12 Cost Management Enhancements
•
•
•
•
•
MOAC – Multi-Org Access Control
Subledger Accounting – OPM & Discrete Costing
COGS Recognition
“As Of Dates” for Inventory Reporting
Re-Designed A/P Accruals
31
R12 Multi-Org Access Control
• Mostly affects “operating unit” level functions
• Allows you to access information across multiple operating
units without changing responsibilities
• Set up a security profile listing the operating units to access
• Run Security List Maintenance concurrent program
• Assign the security profile using the MO: Security Profile
32
Oracle Discrete Costing and SLA
• Flexible variance account recognition for:
⁻
⁻
⁻
⁻
⁻
⁻
⁻
Invoice price and purchase variances
Average cost adjustment
Standard cost adjustment
Manufacturing variances
Account aliases
Freight charges
Most other inventory, manufacturing and related
account entries
33
COGS Recognition
• In R12 customer shipment entries go to deferred COGS
• Revenue and COGS are explicitly matched
• AR: “Autoinvoice” & “Revenue Recognition Master Program”
⁻ CST: “Inventory Cost Processor” or
“Record Order Management”
⁻ CST: “Collect Revenue Recognition Information”
⁻ CST: Then “Generate COGS Recognition Events”
• New Accounting Entries to clear deferred COGS
• Use the COGS Revenue and COGS Matching Report
34
COGS Recognition – Accounting Entries

• Use the COGS Revenue Matching Report
35
Inventory Value Reports “As Of Date”
• Four major reasons for month-end inventory-out-of-balances
⁻
⁻
⁻
⁻
Sharing system accounts leading to poor or no ability to reconcile
Using the same offset account as valuation on miscellaneous inventory transactions
Manual journal entries
Having poor month-end cut-off
• Proper System Setup Fixes the first three (setups and G/L security rules)
• Now Inventory Value Reports have an “As Of Date” so you get accurate
month-end valuation reporting
36
A/P Accruals
• Perpetual A/P Accruals are Completely Rewritten
⁻
⁻
⁻
⁻
Monthly load into summary tables
Excellent detail and summary reporting
(same report/two templates)
A/P Accrual write-offs go to your G/L
Works right out of the box!
• Period End Accruals:
⁻
⁻
⁻
Calculate Accrual Balances at PO Distribution Level
Period-end accrual entries stored in a separate accounting table and automatically
reversed in the new month
Uninvoiced Receipts Report and Period-End Accruals use same underlying code / same
results
• Challenges with R12 Perpetual A/P Accruals
•
Only shows your net position, only remaining balances
⁻
⁻
•
Must reconcile month-by-month, cannot go back
Can be difficult to identify reconciliation issues
Intercompany A/P Accruals are now on the Miscellaneous A/P Accrual
Reconciliation Report
37
R12 Manufacturing and OM
•
•
•
•
•
Engineering (same approvals)
Capacity
Mfg. Scheduling
PO Receiving
Bills and Routings
38
Update Material Control in
Common Bills
• While retaining a common BOM relationship, users can update the
following attributes at the org level:
– Operation Sequence
– WIP Supply Type
– Sub-Inventory
– Locator
– Include in cost roll-up
• Benefits:
Facilitates standardization by deploying common bills while enabling
typical organization overrides
39
Inventory
• Material Status
– Used for Lot control before QA Approval is
complete you can not reserve a lot.
• Defining Picking Rules
– Used to only be one for shipping and Discrete Job
picking.
– Now you can have many!
• OPM Inventory Convergence
40
Material Status
• Material Status control restricts the movement and usage of
portions of on-hand inventory.
• Using material status control enables you to control whether
you can pick or ship an internal order or sales order, or issue
material for a work order. You can also specify whether
material needs to be quarantined until you inspect it.
• In addition, you can determine whether products with a
particular status can be reserved, included in available to
promise calculations, or netted in production planning.
• You assign material statuses at four levels: subinventory,
locator, lot, and serial.
41
Enhanced Picking Rules
• You can create picking rules that enable you to sort picks
based on criteria that you define for sales orders, process
manufacturing batches, or work in process jobs.
• Oracle Inventory reviews the picking criteria order and the
options for each criterion.
42
Purchasing/MRP
• Auto-Approval Tolerances for Change Orders
• This one is long overdue, still creates new revision.
• Changing dates when not using iSupplier can be very time
consuming and most often didn’t require approval.
• Buyer Work Center
• HTML PO Summary and change without so many levels.
• Easier user interface with all a buyer needs in one html form –
Auto-create PO, create and query PO’s and blankets
• Rescheduling of PO from ASCP
– Works well for Planner/Buyer role (i.e. the planner for an item is the
buyer too)
• PI Publisher used for PO layout.
43
Supplier Management
44
Order Management
• Adaptable User Interface
• Item Order-ability
• Enhanced Inventory Reservations
(Reservations Against WIP)
45
Adaptable User Interface
46
Item Order-ability
•
•
Businesses need to be able to order specific products depending on specific
customers. Instead of being able to view and select all items for all customers in
the sales orders window, you can now restrict the item list based on customer and
other related criteria.
If the value of the profile option OM: Use Materialized View for Items LOV
(Honours Item Orderability Rules) is set to No, then the Ordered Items LOV lists all
the items of the item validation organization of the current operating unit. This
doesn't consider the defined item orderability rules, however if there is a defined
rule that prevents the item from being ordered, then an error message is displayed
during the saving of the order. You will not be able to save the order.
47
Installed-Base
• Entirely new HTML user
interface...dramatically improved functionality
“11.5.10 to be virtually unusable in it’s former state”
• Increased integration across Service Contracts,
OM and Field Service allowing easy instance
creation, update and transfer
