What you will learn:

This class focuses on the features, functions and benefits of the Oracle Inventory application. Students will learn how to set up items, how to use the various inventory controls available, how to do transactions, transfers, and inventory moves, inventory replenishment, cycle counting and physical inventory. Students will also learn where Inventory fits in the overall enterprise structure. This course reflects the logical flow of the processes involved in inventory management. For example, this course covers defining items, receiving items, issuing items, and replenishing items in the same order. The exercises in this course provide hands-on experience on using Oracle Inventory to perform many of the processing and inquiry transactions such as receiving, moving, replenishing inventory items, and generating count tags for physical inventories. The hands-on exercises also help you understand how to use mobile devices to perform transactions such as cycle counting and inventory replenishment.

• Set up organizations that correspond to your business units in Oracle Applications.
