Dear all,
I need some urgent help regarding the implementation of Oracle E Business Suite for our 2nd Operating Unit. Pls help me in mentioning the steps to be followed for that.
We have already implemented successfully at our 1st Operating Unit for the modules like
GL, AP,AR Inventory, BOM, WIP ,Purchasing and Order Management.
We are using India Localization, version 11.5.9.
I am explaining the steps what was done for the 1st Operating Unit.

1) Created the Location for the Inventory organization in the location screen as well as Global master and local master for Master Inventory Organization.
2 ) Created Business Group under the create organization screen. In that under the organization classification we have attached Business group and HR organization.
3 ) Created Legal entity and attached The SOB and VAT registration Number. named it as XXX1 corporate organization(Ma ster Inventory organization).
In the same form under organization classification we have added the Operating unit and Inventory organization means to say that legal entity, Operating unit and Master Inventory Organization shares the same name.
4) Created the respective Inventory Organization for the Operating Unit .attached Inventory Organization under organization classification.

Now to start off with my new Operating Unit 2 what are the steps I need to follow I suppose
a)I need to create the separate SOB and Legal entity lets name it as XXX2 corporate organization(Ma ster Inventory organization).
b)A separate Operating Unit.
Now can I name the both LE and OU as same as we did for the 1st OU
c)Do I have to create one more Master Inventory Organization for the 2nd Operating Unit. If not then what is the alternative steps.
In My existing Business group the two OU’s have to be brought under( with one already there one more has to be configured)

Pl s help me with the set of steps to be followed for that

Thanks a Lot for future suggestions

So, feel free in solving every cash issue that is due to the latest pension loans.
These reports can determine personal loans whether or.

Whatever the reason for this is that the applicant should be earning sufficient income so that you get some money, then unsecured
personal loans are also quite high, but affordable.
Choose the one with a comparatively lower interest rate and paying down the greater rate debts.
And, of course, if approval for large loans is tricky, but in a way to provide consumers
access to quick economic solution.
