WM backflush components for network order 281 movement via WM PP interface


Has anyone worked with Network order via WM-PP Interface?

Network is created via tocde CN22.

Through LP10 we run the WM staging, all goes well and the TR gets created from LP10 and TR has the destination storage type as 100 (Production staging) with WM movement type of 319.

To is created from the TR (from above) with destination type 100 and confirmed.

We execute 281 via MIGO and inventory is relieved from 100 storage type BUT new TR is created from the 281 movement type.  I don't think it should create a new TR since inventory is no longer in 100 anymore, it has already been back flushed.  Any idea why another TR is getting created?  How do I avoid another TR from getting created, for the 261 movement we are not seeing another TR getting created.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Fred

    What is your set up?

    Do you have a single plant and 2 storage locations with one being the production SLoc. The same warehouse is used between the 2 SLocs.

    Is this right?

    How have you set up the backflushing? Have you set the tick in the network operation at component level?

    • Hi Fred

      I recently asked the same question regarding using Networks and the PP interface.

      The process I got working was....

      Demand set in the Network (281 mvt type)

      Plant 1000 had an SLoc of 0001 and the main warehouse W01

      I added a production SLoc 0002 and lnked the existing warehouse, W01, with that.

      I copied the 100 storage type and configured the SLoc for PP

      Set up Control Cycles for the materials

      So, when I ran MF60, to stage materials, materials were moved from the warehouse storage type to the 100 storage type.

      As I could not get backflushing to work with 281 mvt (261 is for that from production orders) I issued materials to the planned Network reservation by:

      MB1A mvt 281 To Reservation which created the TR

      Then I had to convert the TR to TO using LB10 taking the stock from the 100 storage type and then confirmed using LT12.

      The only problem I had was when I staged the materials, the storage type changed from a warehouse storage type to 100 but the storage bin from the warehouse was also copied.

      1000               1000     Plant

      0001               0002     SLoc

      W01               W01     Warehouse

      QQ               100     Storage type

      Bin-5               Bin-5     Storage bin

      I was expecting the control cycle to define the destination storage bin but I could not get this to work.

      When you said that after processing MIGO the stock was relieved from 100 and a TR was created were you showing a negative in that storage type?
