Lot Control Overview

Lot Control Overview

    A lot can represent a quantity of an item that shares the same specifications, one or more receipts from the same vendor, or whatever you choose. You can divide each lot into child lots that can reflect whatever characteristics you choose for items within the lot. For example, you may divide a lot of items from a supplier into child lots to reflect differences in quality specifications. When you allocate stock for production, you can allocate specific lots to a production batch based on the potency, age, or other item characteristics. Oracle Inventory provides complete lot number support for inventory transactions. You can enable lot control for specific items in your inventory. For items under lot control, you assign lot numbers to each receipt, and thereafter reference the same lots each time you perform material transactions. This enables you to have tight control over lot controlled items in your inventory. All of the material produced in a manufacturing batch may be assigned a lot number. For example, you can create a manufacturing batch of penicillin and assign it parent lot number A100. You can then use parent lot A100 to create child lot A100_01 to make pills, child lot A100_02 to create emulsion, and child lot A100_03 to create capsules. Each child lot has the same ingredients as the original parent lot A100, but they are in a different format.

Child Lots

Child Lots

    A child lot is a subdivision of a lot that you can use if you produce a lot over a period of time, but still want to group the material as a single lot. Using a child lot maintains the integrity of the lot, but enables you to consume it in manageable pieces. When you process transactions for material under child lot control, you enter the child lot as the lot number. The system also maintains a genealogy relationship between the parent lot and the child lot.

Setting up Lot Control (Organization Parameters)

Setting up Lot Control

    Organization Parameters

     You use the Organization Parameters window to specify whether lot numbers should be unique for an item. If you do not establish lot number uniqueness, you can assign the same lot number to multiple items in the same organization and across organizations. If you control lot number uniqueness at the item level, you can assign a specific lot number only to one item in the same organization and across organizations. When you perform transactions, Oracle Inventory checks the lot number uniqueness control to generate lot number defaults. You use the Organization Parameters window to specify how to generate lot number defaults. You can generate sequential lot numbers based on an alphanumeric prefix that you specify when you define an item. Oracle Inventory can also generate lot number defaults for the entire organization. In this case, you must define a lot number prefix at the Organization level in the Organization Parameters window.

    If you do not want Oracle Inventory to automatically generate lot number defaults for you, you can enter your own lot numbers when you receive items. You can always override lot number defaults. For more information See Defining Organization Parameters, Oracle Inventory User's

    Guide.

Lot Number Uniqueness

Lot Number Uniqueness

    You use the Organization Parameters window to specify whether lot numbers should be unique for an item. If you do not establish lot number uniqueness, you can assign the same lot number to multiple items in the same organization and across organizations. If you set lot number uniqueness to Across Items, you can assign a specific lot number only to a single item. When you perform transactions, Oracle Inventory checks the lot number uniqueness control to generate lot number defaults.

Setting up Lot Control (Item Attributes)

Setting up Lot Control

    Item Attributes

    You can establish lot control for an item when you define it. You can select either No control or Full control. If you choose Full Control, then you must assign lot numbers when you receive the item into inventory. Thereafter, when you transact the item, you must provide a lot number that you specified when you received the item.

    You can update lot control options for an item if it has zero on hand quantity. In addition, you cannot change lot control when open internal orders or inter-org intransit shipments exist. A lot number is a combination of an alphanumeric prefix and a numeric suffix. When you define an item, you can specify the starting lot prefix and the starting lot number. Oracle Inventory uses this information to generate defaults during transaction entry.

    Shelf Life Days

    Shelf life is the amount of time that an item can reside in inventory before it expires. When defining items under lot control, you can choose no control, a certain number of item shelf life days from the date that you receive the item, or a user-defined expiration date for each lot. The system does not consider the expired lot as on-hand supply when it performs min-max, reorder
