Working of Back-flush & Non Back-flush Indicator

Hi,

I have a scenario where I have 2 raw materials one is back-flush & other is non back-flush. Now there are two different recipes in which both the raw materials are to be used. While creating a process order-1 I want both the raw materials are to be back-flushed & in process order-2 I want the material which is back-flush to be retained as back-flush & non-back-flush to be retained as non-back-flush. Can anybody help me how do I take care of it??

Reason for this type of requirement:- One recipe through which process order is made will be posted by production posting cell. So all the raw materials will be posted through T Code COR6. So here both the materials are to be back-flush.

Whereas second recipe through which process order is made will be posted based on the back-flush & non back-flush scenario. In our case all the Non-back-flush raw materials are issued by Raw material stores division to production shop floor. So once he physically transfers the raw material then he goes in T Code MIGO & posts the non-back-flush materials by doing goods issue against process order. The back-flush material will then be posted by production shop floor.

Current Solutions I have:-

1. While creating recipe itself make the settings of back-flush & non back-flush manually. So this setting gets carried ahead while creating respective process order.

2. Make the settings in process order manually by going in material tab every-time a process order is created.

But in both the cases there are chances that user might slip making the necessary settings.

(Note:- Process order type for both the recipe through which process order will be made is same.)

Thanks & Regards,

Rohan Somji

    Dear Rohan,

    When is it decided in the shop floor, whether both the materials are to be backflushed or only the

    materials with backflush indicator are to be posted automatically and the remaining components are

    to be posted manually?

    Though you set the backflush indicator in the master recipe level,again this setting can be changed

    during the process order creation,so still there are chances to make mistake in the process order

    level.

    As you have already mentioned the possible solutions,the left out option is going for 2 process order

    type the first process order type(without setting all components indicator in the confirmation

    parameters in OPK4),so that only those components with backflush indicator gets backflushed

    during confirmation and the remaining components are to be posted manually.

    The second order type with all components indicator set in the confirmation parameters in OPK4,so

    that during confirmation(only after going to goods movements tab) the system will post all the

    components when we save the confirmation data.

    Hello Rohan,

    The first solution seems suitable.But as far as user errors are concerned,than use some exit to validate the specific material is back flush are not at the time of confirmation.

    Hi

    We use User status to control this issue.

    Authorization has been provided to specific people to set the user status to ZIND - Indicator set for backflush.

    We can not release order unless this user status is set.

    Only very few people have authorization to set this indicator. In our case, MRP controller.

    Hi,

    Material which you want to do always backflush can be set as Always backflush in material master MRP view. So system propose this automatically. Do the setting in receipe for non backflush material according to receipe.

    Both are master data settings, so it should be cross checked before to use.
