Oracle Inventory: Material status Control


Material Status Control allows to track the status of material along with the movement of material. Oracle allows tracking material status at following levels
     1. Lot
     2. Subinventory
     3. Item
     4. Locator

Following are important Setups to enable the tracking of material status
  1. Define Material Status
          a. Usage level:
          b. Type of Transactions allowed
  2. At Organization Inv Parameters enable the "Default On Hand Material status".
  3. If Inv Organization has on hand then it can be enabled by running
       "Activate Onhand Level Material Status Tracking"

R12 Features:
1. Separation of Responsibility for Material Movement and Status Update.
2. Multiple status of same lots in different Locators
3. Multiple statuses of different Lots in the Same Locator

Notes:
1. Material movement doesn't change the Lot material status, one needs to update material status.
