The new feature in R12 enables companies wanting to implement a shared services operating model to efficiently process business transactions by allowing them to access, process and report on data for an unlimited number of operating units within a single applications’ responsibility.
With MOAC, users can:
- Perform multiple tasks across Operating Units without changing responsibilities such as invoice entry, order processing, bank payments etc. thus improving the efficiency of transactions for companies that have centralized business functions or operate Shared Service Centers
- Obtain better information for decision making such as, accessing supplier and customer site levels details across multiple OUs
- Speed up data entry
- Reduce setup and maintenance of many responsibilities
Selecting an appropriate carrier and ship method for any order based on the certain criteria is a common requirement. Oracle Order Management offers out of box functionality for getting the ship method selection based on Transportation rules that use attributes such as weight, volume, or geographic locations. Oracle Transportation Management can automate getting the ship method using pre-defined routing guides. Order Management integrates with Transportation’s functionality.
This custom solution offers a basic functionality which allows users to maintain Standard and Exception Carrier Routing Guides and to select appropriate Carrier, Ship Method based on the custom Routing Guides in Order Management.

Part2. “Consistency is all I ask!”
Most of the uncertainty expressed in SROAUG R12 upgrade presentations surrounds the area of functional changes in R12 and the impact these changes will have on an R12 upgrade.
In R12 there are two types of functional changes those which are mandatory, as a part of the upgrade process these functional changes will be implemented. Other changes can be defined as optional and left to be taken up at a later point after the upgrade.
Part1. Be afraid, be very afraid?
The clearest link between all the SROAUG R12 upgrade presentations was an attempt to remove the fear, uncertainty and doubt which seems to have paralyzed many Oracle E-Business Suite 11.5.x customers. R12 has been around since 2009 and is now at the 12.1.3 release level; did initial release issues slow the uptake of R12? That certainly did raise some very profound fears about upgrading to R12 for many, but now that is only of historical interest.
One thing is for sure the Oracle E-Business Suite 11.5.10 installed base is facing a steep increase in support costs as 11.5.10 rolls into extended support in November 2011. So why are many E-Business Suite customers still holding tight at the 11.5.10 release level?

Common Solutions for assimilating staff data following a merger or acquisition:
Corporations face the challenging task of rapidly assimilating newly acquired employees, not only
into the company’s culture, but into their information systems. Here are the common solutions generally used:
- Manually entering new employee data from source data files is only viable when the volume is low and HR resources are available. This process consumes valuable time and resources, and compromises data integrity.
- Programmatically loading employee records using Oracle’s Application Programming Interface (API) is another option, but this process requires an IT team to:
- Manually load the data into existing temporary tables,
- Construct scripts to instruct the APIs to upload the data, and
- Manually verify data upload. This process is time consuming, using valuable resources.
Jade Global has developed a better solution that I will right about more. In the interim, here is a Mergers & Acquisitions White Paper on the subject.
