About the Oracle EBS Inventory Management Blueprint

The Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) Inventory Management module improves inventory visibility, reduces inventory levels and manages facility operations efficiently. Track all of your material in each line of business and stage of the inventory lifecycle in a single, unified system. The Incorta Direct Data Platform™ Blueprint for the Inventory Management module provides prebuilt schemas, dashboards, and insights to help you easily monitor and analyze your organization’s inventory in order to better manage inventory and its costs, increase product turnover by reducing inventory levels, and properly deploy inventory to the correct location.

Here are some of the questions answered by the Oracle EBS Inventory Management Blueprint:

  • What are my inventory turns?
  • How is the inventory mix meeting demand?
  • Which item shortages are driving backorders?
  • How is inventory value trending over time?
  • What are the average days of supply per item and per category?
  • What are the slow-moving items?

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

On Hand Quantities Snapshot

A scheduled job runs a daily load of the MTL_ONHAND_QUANTITIES_SN in the EBS_INV physical schema. As defined in the table’s data source, a SQL query returns a snapshot of the source table. You can modify the snapshot loading date, and thereby change the frequency. To modify the SQL statement in the data source, follow these steps:

  • In the Navigation bar, select Schema.
  • In the Schema Manager, select EBS_INV.
  • In the Schema Designer, select the MTL_ONHAND_QUANTITIES_SN table.
  • In the Table Editor, in the Summary section, select the EBS SQL data source.
  • In the Data Source dialog, in the Query field, modify the SQL statement with the Edit Query dialog as required.
  • Select Save.
  • In the Action bar, select Done.
