Oracle WIP related Item attributes
Describe WIP related Item attributes ?
a) Build in WIP
If you check this attribute, it indicates whether to create discrete jobs or repetitive assemblies in Work in Process module. This attribute must be turned off if the Inventory Item attribute is turned off or if the BOM item Type attribute is not set to Standard. You can not manufacture any item if item is not an inventory item and BOM item type is not standard. This attribute is optionally set by the Item Status code in inventory module
b) Supply Type
You can select a supply type attribute for components when you define an item in Item Master Organization. Supply types decides the method of supplying component materials to discrete jobs and repetitive job/schedules in WIP module. It also controls how materials are planned in MS/MRP module and how materials are costed in Cost Management module
c) Supply Subinventory
This attribute is controlled at the Organization level only. When you define an item in Item Master Organization, you can enter the primary subinventory from which to issue (push) or backflush (pull) an item to work in process during manufacturing.
d) Supply Locator
This attribute is controlled at the Organization level only. When you define an item in Item Master Organization, you can enter the supply locator from which to issue (push) or backflush (pull) an item to work in process. You can also define a WIP supply locator for any bill that uses this item; the bill supply locator overrides the supply locator which you define in Item Master Organization form. It is necesary to enter a WIP supply subinventory before you can enter a supply locator.
