Sourcing Features
• With Oracle Sourcing, users can create reusable invitation
lists (i.e. Suppliers Lists). Suppliers are classified based on
some common characteristics i.e. Suppliers for Handsets,
Suppliers for Battery’s etc.
• Reusable Attribute List
Attributes are characteristics of the product. For Ex a Mobile
Handset can have attributes like Phone Book memory, Battery Talk
Time, Infrared, Bluetooth etc.
Each attribute can be assigned a scoring criteria. For Ex if Phone
book memory is up-to 500, a score of 5 can be given. If memory is
more than 500, score of 10 can be given to the attribute.
Weights can be given to each attribute. Sum total of weights should
be 100.

• Auctions

 Oracle Sourcing allows buyers to conduct auctions for goods or


 A response to an auction is called a bid.

 Auctioner’s can chose whether to allow multiple rounds of


 Styles of auction: Open, Blind and Sealed

• Auction Styles
 Open
 In an open auction all Exchange members participating in the
auction can see the bids in the auction, though the bidder
identity is concealed.
 Open auctions encourage competition among bidders to
submit the best possible price.

 Blind
 In a Blind auction only the creator of the auction or RFQ can
see the bids.

 Sealed
 In a sealed auction the creator cannot see the bids until the
auction is unlocked.
 Participants in the auction cannot see the bids until the
auction is unsealed.
 Types of Bid
 Proxy Bidding
• Proxy bidding allows the Exchange to automatically re-bid on
the bidder's behalf whenever a competing bid price beats the
bidder's bid price within a set limit.

 Power Bidding
• Power bidding allows bidders to streamline their re-bidding
when they have bid on several items in the same auction using
power bidding, all of a bidder's bids (both losing and winning
bids) in an auction will be improved by the percentage the
bidder enters in the "Power Bid" field.
