Entry & Inventory
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.
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.
