Extra Instructions to be added during production order creation.

Dear Experts,

Please help me with an appropriate solution.My client who is into fertilizers has requirement is as follows:

The planning team is the key decision maker in the entire business.Once the production is

planned in APO and converted to production order ,they want various instructions to be passed to

different departments like sales team for delivery as they have to plan for ship carriers in advance.

Sometimes they have to give additions instructions to production other than the ones covered in standard routing and recipe.

I showed them the extra texts which can be captured in production order (Next to order number).But they are not satisfied

with that.I have also explained them the concept of PI sheets and demonstrated the same.But they do not

want to add more complexities at shop floor level.

Is there any other way we can capture as instructions either in planned order or anywhere else ?

    You can consider below options in production order.

    1.Creating a Note other than Long text by clicking on Services for object icon even you can attach the documents.

    2.Execution Steps(X Steps) for Routing and Production order option XSteps for Routing and Production Order - Business Functions (SAP Enhancement Package 5 for SAP ERP 6.0) - SAP Library

    • Kapil,

      As there is no provision for services for object in planned order so I do not think you can copy from planned order to production order.

      I understand the concern of manual job for attaching these, In this case I suggest attach documents with DMS integration or in Material master which would automatically copies the data to order.

      Check below threads for some useful information which may be helpful to you

      As far as Xsteps I never tried this but I think you need to activate business function  LOG_PP_XS_RTG_PO Please refer the SAP Help link for configuration steps.
