Release 12 – Creating an Organization
In an earlier article I had defined the steps to define an inventory organization, where an already defined organization structure was used as model to create a new organization. Here I’ll focus on how to create a new organization right from the beginning.
The navigation to the forms through the Oracle Order Management tree structure is as follows,
Inventory -> Setup -> Organizations -> Organizations
This same form can be accessed from the HRMS Manager in the following way,
HRMS Manager -> Work Structures -> Organization -> Description
When this leaf is clicked we get two forms, Organization and Find organization. The Find Organization can be used to view an already existing organization. To create a new organization just click on the ‘New’ button in the Find Organization window.
In the organization window enter the name of the organization in the Name field. The ‘Type’ field has an LOV that lists out the type of organization that is to be created. He we specify if the organization is a Business Unit or a Branch or Cost Centre etc. Then enter the date from which the organization has to be active. Entering to date is optional. The next field is the ‘location’ that gives the address of the organization. This again is an LOV, so just select the values from the list. To enter set up new Locations, just navigate to,
Inventory -> Setup -> Organizations -> Locations
Then select if the organization is internal or external. The next field is the Organization Classification. Save your work before going to that section.
The Organization Classification can be selected from an LOV. In this case make the selection as an Inventory Organization. Enable the selection and save. The Organization is created. In my next article I’ll explain on how to set up organization parameters for an inventory organization. This process will enable this organization to show in the LOV when you want to copy from organization to create inventory organizations.
The above procedure can be followed to set up any type of organization with any classification.
