Defaulting Requisition Sourcing details using Sourcing Rules
Sourcing Rules in Oracle R12:
You can define sourcing rules that specify how to replenish items in an organization, such as purchased items in plants. Sourcing rules can also specify how to replenish all organizations, as when the entire enterprise gets a subassembly from a particular organization.
If there is a conflict between a sourcing rule and a bill of distribution, the sourcing rule takes precedence.
For instance, if you assign a bill of distribution to AUS that tells it to source a part from NYC, AUS can still define a sourcing rule to source the part from SAC. In this case, the local sourcing rule overrides the bill of distribution.
Since purchasing only uses the default assignment set specified by the MRP: Default Sourcing Assignment Set profile option.
