    We are an R12.1.3 user of discrete manufacturing and many other modules.  We have some requirements to perform an inspection at the supplier prior to the supplier shipping the material from their facility.  Does anyone else have similar requirements, and if so, have you used Oracle features to identify the need on a PO Line and to record the results?​

    Hi Joseph,

    I've not had to do this.. but could you treat the supplier site as the ship to location and perform the inspection at that point? 
    You could then perform an interorg transfer to ship the goods to your location and perform a secondary receipt of the goods at this point.

    This would mean a set of double transactions.

    We do have the PO Receiving Wizard and Material Transaction Wizards to help with this here at More4apps.

    Hi Joseph,

    Do you use iSupplier portal? If yes, then with iSupplier Portal, you can associate collection plans with transactions linked to your suppliers' purchase orders. Your suppliers can then access the collection plans from the iSupplier Portal, and use them to enter and submit Quality result. The supplier logs on, selects the appropriate web page, and queries the system for their purchase orders. If a collection plan has been associated with any of the purchase order shipments listed, a hypertext link titled Available is visible in the Quality Plans column. Through this link, suppliers can enter and view quality results. You can check the Quality user guide for more information.

    • The specific problem mentioned here has the following possible solutions
    • At one of our high technology clients, we had created the Suppliers as Internal Organizations and since 100% test results were required, we put the items on a work order that involved a test step. All items were issued to the work order and came out as the same item after the test step. Any rejections and deviations were recorded on the work order thus allowing quality to track them and address the deviations.
    • At another client we tracked it as a notes from supplier. However we did have a personalization to populate the note when specific item-supplier combinations were chosen.
