Production- How to define BOM & Routing ?

Hi Experts,

Need your suggestions on the below scenario.

We have totally 4 operation - W, X , Y, Z.

Operation W - consuming one material to produce 10 materials (i.e. SFG's).

Operation X - 10 SFG's are consumed in the operation X, along with the 2 raw materials to produce is 4 materials/SFG.

Operation Y - 4 SFG's are consumed in the operation Y, along with the 3 raw materials to produce 4 materials/SFG.

Operation Z - 4 SFG's are consumed in the operation Z , along with the 10 raw materials to produce 1 FG.

Req: Needs to monitor the quantity consumed for each SFG and their production costs also.

Pls advise how to define the BOM and routing.

    I hope when you are talking about SFGs at  3 operations W,X and Y they are different material codes and You want to  receive the stock after each operation.

    In this case you need to define 4 different BOMs and 4 Routings for each BOM level and Operations level.

    Example if you take first level SFG lets say material A Base quantity is 10 in BOM and component quantity is 1 and Routing consist one operation called W.

    Same way you need to define BOM and Routing for other 3 levels.

      For 4 operations 4 BOMs & Routings required that's right.

      But regarding 1st operation, pls check my latest post.

    It totally depends upon you business requirement, if you want to have inventory at each level and monitor planning and costs at every level, then you should have BOM and rounting at every level W, X, Y Z, but if you dont have any business requirement to have inventory at every stage then, you can define all raw materials in single BOM and with final out put as BOM header,All value you will get in WIP.

    Again in last it is business call how they are going to have Planning and inventory.

      Business required inventory and costing not only at the operational levels, but also required after every activity.

      For example: 1st operation , producing 10 SFGs.

      Here business require the qty of raw material consumed to produce 10 SFGs and what is the cost of production for each SFG also. Similarly for next operations X, Y, Z.

      Now to define the 1st operation and in line with other operations

    Hi All,

    Thanks for your prompt replies.

    Pls note that, in 1st operation one material is consumed and producing 10 different materials/SFG's.

    how to create BOM and Routing for this operation. here materials consumption and cost incurred to produce respective 10 - SFG's has to be captured.

    Pls suggest

    • Dear Shrishar,

      Lets wait for experts like Mr Rupesh and Mr Caetano for their reply.

      In this case, I believe instead of creating 50 routings for different SFG for op-10, you need to create a Group routing and used Material Assignment in that.

      Perhaps Trigger point concept can too be deployed here for reference operation set for all 50 SFgs

      Please wait for our senior members reply.

      Best regards
