CO11N Order operation sequence to be followed in confirmation

Dear All,

I have a requirement in which users should not be able to confirm the next operation (0020) production order without confirming previous operation (0010). In my case only one routing operation per order,so in every PRODUCTION order only 0010 routing operation will be there.I made settings in OPK4,"E Error when operation sequence is not adhered to"and in OPJ8 routing control key,"2 Confirmation required". Is there any other way to restrict?

Thanks in advance.

    • Hello Jeffrey,

      I don't think that this requirement can be achieved through standard configuration.Second thought for Z development,then it will going to be a huge development with lots of logic and validation which I think little bit tricky because of so many entries of production order created.

      Anyways you can derived the below logic if you want to go for Z developement.

      1.Find Co11n or Cor6n tcode user exit for confirmation.

      2.Take reference of AFRU table and select the number of productions order based on date.I think here you need to finalise the logic for past number of days which order needs to be select with a status rel and not confirmed.

      3.Take a reference of JEST table for production order and operation status details.

    Instead of releasing the order at header level, you can go to the operations screen, select the desired operation and then press the green flag. That way you will only release one specific operation and you will not be able to post confirmations for the subsequent operations.

    Hi Jeffrey,

    This is the setting which need to be done. Have you tested the setting which you made?

    • Hello Solomon,

      Thanks for your reply. Here we follow both MTS and MTO, i.e strategy now what settings should i maintain for this case? Or is it possible through user exits or enhancements?

    Another option is to release the first operation instead of the whole order. Then you can use trigger points to release the subsequent operations upon the confirmation.

    • Hello Caetano,

      Thanks for your reply. For your info, actually here we consider all operations as individual SFG materials. So if 3 operations,then 3 SFGs and 3 Production orders for those 3 SFG materials. And with one operation in routing for each SFG. So when coming to your point you said release operations,i didnt get what you meant. Can you elaborate a little or post link?
