About the Oracle EBS Accounts Payable Blueprint

The Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) Accounts Payable (AP) module administers payment for products or services. The Incorta Direct Data Platform™ Blueprint for the Accounts Payable module provides prebuilt schemas, dashboards, and insights to help you manage cash, optimize payment timing for maximum benefit, and even help to identify problematic vendors.

Here are some of the questions answered by the Oracle EBS Accounts Payable Blueprint:

  • Are payments to key suppliers or supplier groups overdue?
  • What is the discount lost?
  • What are the AP invoice holds by buyer, and how does that relate to the purchase orders (POs)?
  • What are the top invoices by discount amount offered that are on hold?
  • Do we pay suppliers too early, too late, or on time?
  • How does payment timing impact our working capital?
  • How efficiently do we process payables?
  • What percentage of the invoices we receive are manual?
  • How long does it take us to process an invoice?
  • Which cost centers generate the top expenses? Which organization and/or person is the top spender?

You can further customize and add on to the insights in the Incorta Accounts Payable blueprint to support your specific business needs.

Note

The Oracle EBS Accounts Payable blueprint is available in the On-Premises and Cloud Versions of Incorta.

View the Accounts Payable Blueprint Schema Diagram with the Schema Diagram Viewer

Here are the steps to view the Accounts Payable Blueprint schema diagram using the Schema Diagram Viewer:

  • Sign in to the Incorta Direct Data Platform.
  • In the Navigation bar, select Schema.
  • In the list of schemas, select the EBS_AP schema.
  • In the Schema Designer, in the Action bar, select Diagram.

EBS_AP Schema Diagram

Here is the EBS_AP schema diagram. This subset of the Accounts Payable Blueprint schema diagram represents the relationships between the tables in the EBS_AP schema and is provided for brevity.

Additional Information

Aging Buckets

By default, the aging buckets are set up as 0-10, 11-20, 21-30, and >30 days. To change the aging bucket duration or add more buckets, the following formula columns for the aging buckets need to be modified in the AP_PAYMENT_SCHEDULES_ALL table in the EBS_AP schema:

  • AGE_BUCKET_DUE
  • AGE_BUCKET_DUE_NUM
  • AGE_BUCKET_OVERDUE
  • AGE_BUCKET_OVERDUE_NUM

The following formula is the default for AGE_BUCKET_DUE:

if(daysBetween(EBS_AP.AP_PAYMENT_SCHEDULES_ALL.DUE_DATE, $currentDate) <0,'OVERDUE', IF ( daysBetween (EBS_AP.AP_PAYMENT_SCHEDULES_ALL.DUE_DATE , $currentDate ) <=10, '0-10', IF(daysBetween(EBS_AP.AP_PAYMENT_SCHEDULES_ALL.DUE_DATE, $currentDate) <=20, '10-20', IF(daysBetween(EBS_AP.AP_PAYMENT_SCHEDULES_ALL.DUE_DATE, $currentDate) <=30,'20-30',' >30'))))

The following is an example formula for an additional 31 to 60-day bucket:

if(daysBetween(EBS_AP.AP_PAYMENT_SCHEDULES_ALL.DUE_DATE, $currentDate) <0,'OVERDUE', IF ( daysBetween (EBS_AP.AP_PAYMENT_SCHEDULES_ALL.DUE_DATE , $currentDate ) <=10, '0-10', IF(daysBetween(EBS_AP.AP_PAYMENT_SCHEDULES_ALL.DUE_DATE, $currentDate) <=20, '10-20', IF(daysBetween(EBS_AP.AP_PAYMENT_SCHEDULES_ALL.DUE_DATE, $currentDate) <=30,'20-30',IF(daysBetween(EBS_AP.AP_PAYMENT_SCHEDULES_ALL.DUE_DATE, $currentDate) <=600,'30-60',' >60')))))

Accounts Payable Data Security (Optional)

By default, row-level data security is turned off. To turn on row-level data security based on the Oracle EBS ORG_ID security profile, which controls access to operating unit data, update the ORG_IDS session variable with the following SQL:

SELECT distinct fpov.profile_option_value org_id
FROM apps.hr_organization_units hou,
apps.fnd_profile_options_vl fpo,
apps.fnd_profile_option_values fpov,
apps.fnd_responsibility_vl frv,
apps.fnd_user_resp_groups furg,
apps.fnd_user fu
WHERE
fpov.level_value = frv.responsibility_id
AND fpo.profile_option_id = fpov.profile_option_id
AND fpo.user_profile_option_name = 'MO: Operating Unit'
AND fpov.profile_option_id = fpo.profile_option_id
AND hou.organization_id = TO_NUMBER (fpov.profile_option_value)
AND frv.responsibility_id = furg.responsibility_id
AND furg.user_id = fu.user_id
AND UPPER(fu.user_name)=UPPER($USER)
