Rejected finished goods reprocessing

Hi Sap gurus,

I am new in PP and Need your advice how to map this scenario as per best practice of SAP.

We are a paper manufacturing company and have in house production of both semi-finished (jumbo roll) and finished goods. Finished goods are produced in batches from jumbo roll by trimming it into different sizes as per sales orders.

QM module is involved in our scenario and using inspection type 04. Whenever batch is rejected from quality department they do return delivery while making usage decision which uses movement type 122 and stock disappears from system.

But physically stock exists and is used again in Manufacturing process of Semi-finished Products.

How can we map this rejected material to use again in manufacturing of S.f in SAP? One way is to use this Finished good in bom of S.F but management wants to see the Loss of this rejected material in different account?

Thanks in Advance.

    The movement type depends how you define "rejection" . also it is unclear if you use QM module

    Usually the goods are there, they sit in the warehouse while you inspect the quality. And if the quality is not good then you either post it to blocked stock or in case you have batches with status management then you post it into restricted use status.

    Restricted use makes it easier to move and rework the product as you do not need to transfer it into unrestricted use before consuming it in a rework process.

    • the second case has no link to a rework order, it does not reflect any costs that you have when reworking the item. it is a second process. If you use production orders to manufacture the material then you should also use it to rework it. You probably use it on purpose to better plan the capacities and requirements, to get your costs etc etc. All this is not covered by a simple MM transaction. We locked this material to material transfer already many years ago as it allows to make an elephant out of a mouse.

    Hi thanks for your feedback.

    Our rejected quantity is not saleable. Its like a scrap which is reprocessed again with BOM of semi finished. I am attaching a screenshot of the process for your better understanding.

    How can we map this rejected material in sap?

    I do appreciate your cooperation.

    Hi, You can define Batch C as bi-product and which will be part of bom of other finished products.

    Form quality management prospective please use MvT 349 / 350 + Inspection type 08 to control the rejected inspection lots to be reposted back to quality and repeat the inspection testing, till you get the quality after re-processing is satisfactory. Please go through Brahma's document and that will explain you in details what needs to be checked and validated.

    Are you using batch status?

    If rejected, the stock should have a rejection UD code that posts to "Unrestricted stock, restricted batch status". This is set up on the UD code in the selected set configuration.

    Batches with a restricted batch status can be selected and consumed as inputs to the process orders. But restricted batches normally cannot be put against a sales order for sale to a customer. To make sure, you can always add a batch search strategy in SD that includes the standard SAP batch characteristics LOBM_ZUSTD.

    This would all be standard SAP.

    Hello

    You can think to valuate each batch with concept of Split Valuation. Your FG will be marked with valuation category as X and each batch of FG to be produced will carry batch specific Accounting view. Say the rejected Batch C will have its batch price stored. Now, you may conceptualize to make a production version which will have a Alt BOM 2 having Batch C material and raw component 3 which will be called upon while creating a production order having settings done in order type dependent parameter and in material master mrp view 4. You can track the incurred value of Batch C will a separate order type.

    Best regards
