Link between multiple Prd Orders and Prd Version

Hi Gurus,

Simplified explanation of my client. My Client has 2 routings, both are identical so one of them is explained here.
Routing (A) has 3 work centers assigned as 3 operations.

1st WC in routing - Initial Work center

2nd WC - Middle Workcnter

3rd WC - Final workcenter

Initial work center gets SFG and raw material and produces another SFG which goes into production storage location 1 and from there into Final workcenter.

Similarly Middle workcenter gets SFG and raw material and produces another SFG which goes into production storage location 2 and then into Final workcenter.

Planning(MD61->MRP run-> Co41 Conversion of plnd order to prd order) is done on Fert material which is produced by the final workcenter. Production Versions are also assigned to ONLY Fert materials.

Q1: How are Prd orders for multiple SFG materials being made w.r.t to production version as I've only assigned Prd version to FERT material?

Q2: Will SFG material follow the same Prd version (routing) which is only assigned to the FERT material? SFG are dependent requirements of FERT material.

Q3: How can I see Prd orders of SFG material? coois? Can I change them in co02 or once planning run is complete they get confirmed automatically and we cant edit them?

Reason of using Prd version is that my client has 2 routings which have identical structure as explained above. They want the ability to switch routing on their desire with regards to the same Fert material. Ive already removed the option of swithcing routings when the production has started in one of the workcenters of the routing. If they want to switch they have to do it from the start of planning run MD61.

Thanks
Shankar

    Hello

    Agreed with the above reply DB49 on your query.

    Your query is not very much clear.

    The following links might be helpful for you as your requirement is quite similar to the collective orders

    Have a look

    Production Orders (PP-SFC) - SAP Library

    COLLECTIVE ORDER OR DIRECT PRODCUTION - A scenario overview

    Hope this may help

    • Hi ,

      Reference to your question , when you run the MRP of the FERT , BOM explosion for FERT or SFG or till lowest level will be based on the BOM Selection Method you have chosen in MRP4 view and then system will also look whether its on Validity of the PVs in MRP4 or the lot size in comparison to the planning run and demand .

      If your demand falls into the Lot size or validity of PVs , then it will selected and BOM explosion will trigger in MRP run .

      For example , you can also get the PV in MD61 at time of creation of demand for certain period in schedule tab based on the PV validity .

      Regards

    Shankar,

    Q1: How are Prd orders for multiple SFG materials being made w.r.t to production version as I've only assigned Prd version to FERT material?

    I'm guessing you haven't even bothered to prototype this, which would have immediately answered your questions.

    In the scenario you have described above, production orders are not being made for multiple SFG materials, unless you have included each of the SFG materials in the BOM of the FERT. Even though you you have said "...Initial work center gets SFG and raw material and produces another SFG..." those things do not happen in the routing/production version that you have described. Once RM and SFG have been issued to the FERT production order, they disappear; and the value of the SFG is included in the WIP of the FERT production order.

    Q2: Will SFG material follow the same Prd version (routing) which is only assigned to the FERT material? SFG are dependent requirements of FERT material.

    I don't know what that statement means. The only SFG that actually appears to be relevant in your scenario is the SFG that you issued to work center 1 in operation 1. The demand explosion from the FERT will allow you to plan that SFG using planned orders and production orders.

    Q3: How can I see Prd orders of SFG material? coois? Can I change them in co02...

    Well, yes, you can see ANY production order in COOIS. You can change just about any production order in CO02.

    ...or once planning run is complete they get confirmed automatically and we cant edit them?...

    I don't know what that statement means. Planning (MRP) does not confirm production orders. MRP in general does almost nothing to production orders. In general, only humans perform maintenance on production orders.

    If you want to have production orders for all of the objects that you have categorized above as 'SFG', and you wish to store them in interim storage locations, then you will have to change the structure of the FERT BOM, and rethink the structure of your Fert Routing.. If you elect to build the SFGs with multiple production orders, and you wish to have all the SFG production orders tightly linked to the FERT production order, and you do not wish to use MTO, you could consider the use of collective orders.

    My perception is that you are trying to create a solution for a business scenario, but your training has not fully prepared you for this task. Before you present a solution to your client, I suggest you approach your supervisor, or perhaps a senior Production Planning solution architect from your company, describe the business scenario given to you by the client, and ask them how you should proceed.

    Best Regards,

    DB49
