Cloud and EBS Costing, You Can Track & Eliminate Profit in Inventory (And Still Have a Life!)
Is Cloud Costing any better?  Oracle introduced profit in inventory concepts with Release 11i; you could accrue the profit from the sending organization into the receiving organization without some form of customization or manual journal entries.  But even in Release 12 the design was not complete, as the Oracle Cost Management and related modules did not have the underlying logic in place to relieve the inter-company profit in inventory for when the goods are shipped to the customer or otherwise scrapped or disposed of.   Learn about solutions which you will not find in My Oracle Support, user guides or blogs.  For more information email Doug at or download the presentation here.
