Materials Management for Oracle E-Business Suite
Materials Management Module
With Oracle Inventory Management you can improve inventory visibility, reduce inventory levels and control inventory operations. All of your material in each line of business and stage of the inventory lifecycle can be tracked in a single system. Increased transparency will reduce the need for local buffer stocks, and inventory will be located where it previously wasn’t known to exist.
Oracle Inventory Management is part of the Oracle Logistics solution and integrates seamlessly with other Supply Chain Management applications, including Oracle Warehouse Management, Oracle Order Management, Procurement, Discrete and Process Manufacturing, and Oracle Financials.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Improve Global Inventory Visibility
Oracle Inventory Management allows you to consolidate your disparate inventory tracking and control systems into a single, global inventory management solution for material in every stage of the product or production lifecycle as well as for your different business types. For manufacturers and distributors, this visibility is not limited to current state balances but also includes global track and trace information including inventory source and where-used analysis.
- Reduce Inventory Levels
Oracle Inventory Management gives you a variety of tools to reduce your inventory levels. The more accurate your inventory levels and efficient your replenishment, the less safety stock you need to hold. The more proactive your exception management, the more readily you can respond to shortages, quality issues and backorders before costly expediting is required.
- Control Multi-Mode Inventory Operations
Whether you are running manufacturing centers, distribution centers, service depots, spare parts warehouses or other types of parts storage facilities, Oracle Inventory Management provides the multi-mode inventory capability that helps you control all your inventory operations. Comprehensive material and transaction attributes capture gives inventory managers and operators flexible visibility into material aging, qualitative characteristics, material status
Oracle Warehouse Management
Adapt to Volatility and Innovation
Your complex warehouse operations must adapt quickly and easily to changes. Your company is constantly innovating — and as your business model rapidly changes, the expectations for warehouses change, too. Whether because a customer radically increases their order volume to accelerate their inventory velocity, or your business decides to ship products with the longest remaining shelf life to their best customers, your Warehouse Management Solution must quickly respond.
Oracle’s Warehouse Management Solution delivers adaptive customer processes enabling your organization to make logistics a source of competitive differentiation.
Converge Multiple Supply Chain Processes
Warehouses increasingly perform more and more functions — assembly, manufacturing, repair. They are part of extended supply chain processes including transportation management, procurement, manufacturing, order management, spare parts and repair operations, asset management, and maintenance.
Oracle’s Warehouse Management Solution pre-integrates with the processes and applications driving these functions in your company. As a result, you get optimized execution of materials handling transactions on mobile and traditional terminals.
Scale in Complexity from Small to Large Operations
Customers demand the goods they want, when they want them, in perfect condition — and to their unique specifications. Warehouses must handle more items, with greater velocity, in increasingly complex orders. To address these challenges, businesses need a robust and scalable solution. They need a solution that will help them to optimize their operations — no matter how large or small.
Oracle’s Warehouse Management Solution offers a broad range of materials management functionality from the most basic to the most advanced. No matter how big or small, you will improve inventory accuracy and labor productivity while reducing overall warehousing and distribution costs.
