Material Status

Explaining 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.

    Item status drives the item attributes by allowing you to keep an item from being built in Oracle Work In Process, ordered, procured etc. Material status is a granular control over each inventory transaction that applies to specific material within your warehouse or manufacturing facility.

Material Status Control Levels

Material Status Control Levels

    You assign subinventory and locator statuses in the subinventory and locator windows. The location status applies to the material in the location and not the location itself. To assign a material status to a lot or serial, you must first enable the item attributes Lot Status Enabled, and Serial Status enabled on the item in the Item Master. You can also optionally assign a default lot or serial status to an item on the Item Master. When you receive the item, the system automatically assigns the default lot or serial status to the item. The lot or serial status remains the same through all inventory transactions including organization transfers. If necessary, you can change the material status at receipt, use the material workbench, or mobile status update page to modify the material status. For more information about setting up lot and serial statuses see Inventory Attribute Group, Oracle Inventory User’s Guide.

    When a material status is assigned to a subinventory or locator, the material is not assigned the material status of the subinventory or locator; rather, it takes on the behavior indicated by the material status at the subinventory or locator level.

Material Status Transactions

Material Status Transactions

    A material status is a combination of transactions and planning actions that you choose to disallow in a particular circumstance. Disallowed transactions and planning actions are cumulative. When you set up transaction types, you determine whether some transactions can be restricted by material status. The transactions for which you enable status control in the Transactions Types window appear in the Material Status Definition window. If you do not enable status control for a transaction type, then the transaction type is always allowed. You can also assign the planning attributes Allow Reservations, Include in ATP, and Nettable to the material statuses that you create. When you transact an item, the system checks all of the material statuses. If the system finds a status that disallows the transaction, whether at the serial, lot, locator, or subinventory level, then the transaction fails.

Cumulative Effective Status

Cumulative Effective Status

    A cumulative effective status is the combination of all disallowed transactions. Disallowed transactions and planning actions are cumulative.

    When you transact an item, the system checks all of the material statuses. If the system finds a status that disallows the transaction, whether at the serial, lot, locator, or subinventory level, then the transaction fails.

    For example, if you have a locator whose status disallows WIP Issue and that locator is in a subinventory whose status disallows Sales Order Issue, neither of those transactions will be allowed for material that is in the locator.

Material Status Examples

Material Status Examples

    This example describes four typical material statuses and the actions to allow or disallow:

     Active - This is a typical default for your warehouse. It does not disallow any transaction

    types.

     Hold - You might use this status for material that needs to be inspected or whose quality

    is suspect. You could not perform certain transactions for material in this status until you

    change it to a different status.

     Immature - This status is useful for material that needs to age in the warehouse before

    being picked or shipped for a sales order. You may want to allow internal orders to move

    the material around your distribution chain, but picking and shipping this material for

    orders to customers should be prevented.

     Almost Mature - This material has a very short aging process, or is nearly mature. By

    assigning material this particular status, you enable that material to be picked and staged,

    but prevent the material from being shipped. As soon as material is completely matured,

    it can be assigned a status of Active and shipped immediately.
