Is it necessary to update In-house production time in days in material master from routing?

Hi all,

could you tell me in-house production time in days in material master of work scheduling view?


What I'd like to know is whether I should update in-house production time in days in material master from routing.

I know how to update this.

1. Select "Scheduling" menu to mark scheduling data in CA02.

2. Update material master in CA96.

If these operations are not correct, please let me know.

Usually, I maintain routing master for MRP of lead time scheduling,

but I don't update in-house production time in days in material master from routing data.

In this case,will any problem happen in the future?

Best regards,

Mei

    Hi Mei,

    The In-house production time that you have in the material master is only relevant when you execute the MRP with Scheduling parameter = 1.

    In case you run the MRP with scheduling 2, then it is not relevant the In-house production time.

    Kind regards.

    Hello Megimi,

    You should make sure that the in-house production time defined on the material master is as close as possible to the times defined on the routing, so that the basic finish date matches the production finish date.  Transactions CA97 or CA97N can be used to update the in-house production time with the information from the routing.

    Please refer the SAP help link how to mass update material masters from routing

    • Hello Megunmi,

      I still don't understand when these transaction is usually executed.

      Do you use CA97 or CA97N every time after updating routing master?

      Answer is no when there is major change in routing time in that condition you can use it, it's not necessary to execute on regular basis.
