Optimizing Packaging Efficiency: A Case Study of Oracle E-Business Suites Implementation

Dipak Dilip Kulkarni [2]

Abstract: This paper delves into the intricate landscape of packaging requirements within the Business-to-Business (B2B) model, highlighting the diverse needs dictated by customer preferences and regulatory mandates. It explores how Oracle E-Business Suites (EBS) serves as a comprehensive ERP solution for managing packaging processes, addressing both customer-specific packing and material planning for pallets and skids. In the B2B realm, each customer necessitates materials to be shipped according to specific formats, ranging from cartons to custom packing pallets or skids. Oracle EBS stands as a prominent ERP application adept at addressing these requirements, leveraging sub-applications such as Oracle Warehouse Management System (WMS) and Oracle Advanced Supply Planning (ASCP). It outlines distinct packing requirements, emphasizing the need for meticulous attention to detail, especially in scenarios where customers provide customized packing materials. The paper outlines common packing requirements, such as specific box or material preferences, prohibition of mix and match, limiting packing to maximum pack size, and facilitating partial packing. Furthermore, it elucidates the implementation of these requirements within Oracle EBS, utilizing functionalities like customer cross-reference and descriptive flex fields within Oracle Inventory. It also describes the customized packing process via Oracle WMS and Oracle Mobile Supply Chain Application (MSCA), ensuring compliance with customer specifications and minimizing errors. The journal extends to material planning for pallets and skids, emphasizing the importance of effective planning and integration with Oracle Inventory, Bill of Materials (BOM), and Work In Progress (WIP) modules. It details the process of defining rack or skid items, receiving them from customers, and incorporating them into work orders. Finally, the journal concludes by highlighting the advantages of Oracle EBS in streamlining packaging processes and ensuring efficiency, compliance, and customer satisfaction. It underscores the pivotal role of technology in navigating the complexities of modern manufacturing and supply chain management, positioning Oracle EBS as a steadfast ally in driving operational excellence and sustained growth. Overall, the journal provides a comprehensive overview of the intricate dynamics of packaging requirements within the B2B model and the pivotal role of Oracle EBS in addressing these challenges.
