SLA for OPM – (Subledger Accounting for Oracle Process Manufacturing) – a straight forward approach to get Journal Entries for Accounting Events


In EBS R12 (Oracle Enterprise Business Suite Release 12), seeded AAD (Application Accounting Definition) does not work for OPM (Oracle Process Manufacturing) transactions.

Anyway this standard functionality is not quite far away. With common effort we can get to accounting entries. The most straight forward solution is to copy seeded setup in a user owned SLA (Subledger Accounting).

Create Accounting process for OPM (Oracle Process Manufacturing) transactions will run with no effects when using Oracle owned JLD’s (Journal Line Definitions).

Actually no transaction created in context of a Process Manufacturing Enabled organization will get accounted with seeded SLA (Subledger Accounting) setup.

This functionality is quite unexpected considering that in R12 the Inventory (INV) and Oracle Process Manufacturing (OPM) are unified in terms of transactions and underlying database structure and that all common financial, purchasing and inventory modules do create journal entries “out of the box”.

The shortest path to set up SLA (Subledger Accounting) in order to get OPM (Oracle Process Manufacturing) transactions accounted:

  • Copy AAD (Application Accounting Definition) into a new user owned AAD (Application Accounting Definition)
  • Copy required JLD’s (Journal Line Definitions) into new user owned JLD’s (Journal Line Definitions)
  • Assign new JLD’s (Journal Line Definitions) to seeded Event Classes and delete the original assignments
  • Validate
  • Set up SLAM (Subledger Accounting Method) to use the new created AAD (Application Accounting Definition).

In a thin OPM (Oracle Process Manufacturing)  implementation at least the following JLD’s (Journal Line Definitions) will be needed:

  • PO Receiving (Purchase Order Receiving)
  • Move Order Issue
  • Move Order Transfer
  • Subinventory Transfer
  • Sales Order
  • WIP Issue (Work In Process Issue)
  • WIP Completion (Work In Process Completion)

Check your business processes and create your JLD’s (Journal Line Definitions) accordingly.

In all copying and setting up pay attention to the Chart of Accounts selected for Transaction and Accounting. They should match with the rest of the setup hierarchy. The system returns no error or warning at setup or create accounting. The only effect is that the events do not get accounted. The straight forward approach is to set them to your primary chart of accounts.

Finally, there’s another very important peculiarity of what does Cialis that brings it so high above its alternatives. It is the only med that is available in two versions – one intended for use on as-needed basis and one intended for daily use. As you might know, Viagra and Levitra only come in the latter of these two forms and should be consumed shortly before expected sexual activity to ensure best effect. Daily Cialis, in its turn, contains low doses of Tadalafil, which allows to build its concentration up in your system gradually over time and maintain it on acceptable levels, which, consequently, makes it possible for you to enjoy sex at any moment without having to time it.

    I am trying to modify the SLA for move order transfers. I can find a Event Type of Move Order Transfer but I do not know what event class the event falls into. Any suggestions?

    Event Class – Event Type hierarchy can be found under Event Model menu entry.

    Setup – Subledger Accounting Setups – Accounting Methods Builder – Events – Event Model.

    Finally, an issue that I am passionate about. I have looked for information of this caliber for the last several hours. Your site is greatly appreciated.
