Oracle Fusion Cloud Inventory Management is one of the core modules that you must setup prior to setting up other sub-ledger and transactional application modules such as Payables, Receivables, Fixed Assets, Purchasing or Order Management.
The entire Oracle Fusion Applications Cloud ERP setup starts by setting up your company’s accounting and legal structure. You first start by setting up your chart of accounts, then define your primary ledger and optionally define your secondary ledger and reporting currencies ledger, and lastly define legal entities and operating units and link them to your primary ledger.
You then setup E-Business Tax or Inventory modules, which follows the application setups of your subledger applications.
In case you start by setting up Inventory module, then you have to consider three aspects of the setups. The first step should be setting up the core-setups, which are mainly around defining your Inventory Organization structure. The second step should be setting up the transactional setups, which could include a number of transactional setups including ATP setups. And finally the third setup is around Inventory Planning, Forecasting and Replenishment.
In summary, inventory is a module that involves exhaustive setups, which will be later used by all your subledger and transactional application modules.
