Paper Proposals Selected for OAUG Collaborate 2016

Taming Oracle EBS R12.x Accrual Reconciliation Load

Following our EBS R12.1.3 upgrade, we experienced inconsistent runtime and resource utilization with the Accrual Reconciliation Load program. During one month end close, a plant accountant could run accrual reconciliation for three years of data in under 10 hours. The next month, the same amount of data would take upwards of 30 hours to load. This behavior made it hard to plan for month end closure; successful accrual load being crucial to the finals for the month. Through multiple rounds of testing, we were able to complete the reconciliation process with nearly 15 years of data in just 1 hour and 45 minutes.
