Selling of Co-Product in Make to Order Scenario

Dear Experts,

We have stuck up in one issue and for that we need help.

Actually as per the business requirement, it is a in-formal Make to Order Scenario.

Business gets a sales order from the customer. But Production process couldn't be started at that point. With reference to Sales Order, Job list(Detailed specification) is provided by the customer.

Against Job-list actual Production is initiated(CO08). During Production process, it may be possible that multiple Sales Order Item is generated and hence in the process we define the other sales order items as co-products(This is also to reduce the lengthy process of Production and if we go by definition of co-product it seems correct!).

Once Production is completed, multiple materials mentioned in Sales Order items are produced as co-products along with header material.

Now challenge is, all these produced co-products are being tagged to only 1 item of Sales Order(The one which is entered at the time of CO08). and this is also not allowing delivery of produced co-products as these items would have been mentioned as the other items of Sales Order.

When we do 413 E to tag/untag the co-products to respective Sales Order items, FI entries (Price difference posting) is getting generated which may impact the costing. Not sure, weather this is a ideal way out.

Could you please provide the way out to deal this requirement and solve this issue.

Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Nirav,

    In my opinion it is not correct practice. As I understand you are creating one production order for finish material. along with that you are producing your sales items as co product. Can you provide more inputs.

    1. If you can tell the product name and co product name and process

    2. Is the ratio of the co products are constant

    3. Can you change the bom level to simplify the processes?

    Hi Nirav,

    i dont now whether i am undestood your requirement correctly or not , i suggest you to check the Sales BOM option to deliver the co products, by using this you can create sales order without any finance entries.

    work with your SD consultant to create sales BOM with no item pricing.
