Order Entry & Inventory
The University is exploring a creative use of the Oracle Order Entry and Inventory applications. The ISP Purchasing/Accounts Payable (PO/AP) team will search for a way that internal service providers can offer their goods and services in the Oracle Purchase Order application and, after customer selection, use other Oracle applications (Order Entry and Inventory) to "ship" and bill for the goods or services. Examples of units that might use this capability are: ITC for telephone installation and services, Parking and Transportation for rental cars, shared research services groups such as the Central Electron Microscope unit in the School of Medicine, etc. If the team can discover an effective way to offer these tools to the University community, ordering and billing process for internal service providers can be standardized.

The CAPPS system will disappear once the Oracle procurement applications are deployed. Since the CAPPS inventory system is used by Chemstores, it is planned that Oracle Inventory will be deployed as the replacement for the current Chemstores inventory system. The team will also create a flexible inventory system within the Oracle Inventory application so that all other units at the University that maintain significant inventories can operate out of the common inventory pool.
