Oracle Work in Process Departments

Having defined his Resources in Oracle Work in Process (WIP), Dwight knows that he has to associate these Departments with the Resources they house. This page follows the steps he takes to do just that.

Creating Department Classes

Department Classes are used to group Departments primarily for reporting purposes. Dwight sets up his Department Classes based on the broad functional categories he sees at the Naperville Plant.

Borrowing a Resource

Dwight’s drawing on the whiteboard seems to suggest that the Machine AE-BANDER is shared among the two Departments. That is not the really the case. In fact both the Departments – ASSEMBLY and FABRICATE have 2 units each, of this machine. That is what Dwight means to show in his drawing.

The concept of borrowing a resource comes in when FABRICATE needs a machine that is available only with ASSEMBLY.

Let us review the demo below.
