Repetitive and other manufacturing concepts

Good day to you all,

Can anyone tell me or point me in the right direction on where I can find a comparison or even an introduction to the different types of Produciton that PP supports (I am aware of the Repetitive Manufacturing information on SAP)

I would ideally like to know what is available and the general information (just like the intro to Rep Manufacturing.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Hall,

    These are diffrences between REM/Discreate/ and Process manufacturing.

    <i><b>REM:</b></i>

    Production is based on the planned orders.

    Planning and manufacturing is based on period wise.

    Normally single products being manufactured for a longer period of time.

    Normally production are carried out on a single production line (repetitively).

    Product costing and settlement is done through product cost collector.

    Planned orders are known as Run schedule quantities. Means quantity which is being manufactured in a certain period.

    Planned orders are sufficient to carry out production at shop floor area.

    Master data includes production version, product cost collector and rate routing.

    Materials will be issued anonymously to production lines means without reference to planned orders.

    <i><b>Discreate:</b></i>

    Production based on the production orders

    Planning and manufacturing depends on production orders.

    Products changed frequently.

    Production is carried out on different production lines (scattered- discrete).

    Product costing and settlement is done through production orders.

    Planned orders are stock type later converted into production orders.

    Production orders are required.

    Production version and product cost collector are not mandatory.

    Materials will be issued always with reference to production orders.

    Master Data includes Routings and BOMs.

    <i><b>PROCESS:</b></i>

    1) Batch Oriented process manufacturing.

    2) Process order based manufacturing.you copy the process described in a master recipe and adjust it to the actual production run.

    3) It is primarily designed for the chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage industries as well as the batch-oriented electronics industry.

    4)The integrated planning of production, waste disposal, and transport activities within a plant.

    5) Master Data includes Master Recipes and resources.

    6) Process Management:In this area, you coordinate the communication between PP-PI and process control during the execution of a process order.

    If helps rewards points and close this thread.

    regards

    REM:

    1.Contionous production with same lot eg. coke , pepsi.

    2.continous prodution of same by same metohd on single line.

    3.Here production and costing is based on period , by using product cost collector.

    4.In REM process the posting of production is done by using backflush

    i.e component , assembly , and activity backflush.

    5. Basic master data is REM profile, BOM,Routing, WORKcenter, PRD version,

    6. Standard cost estimate u have to run monthly for settlement of cost and product costing.

    DESCRET

    Production is not continous on the shopfloor. As per avilibilty of resources / work centers/ machines the flow of production is going.

    Eg, manugacturing of mechanical component like shaft if cutting .

    Here costing is done on material level and order level.

    Prd orde is from CRTD< REL<CNF<TECO<SETT<CLSD this staus is avilable.

    here basic master data is BOM, erk center, routing, no REM profile

    Repetive Manufacturing :

    1. if you produce the same goods in same work centre for long time

    2. if not produced in small lots

    3. if your shopfloor is simple

    4. If business requires simple backflushing tools - if confirmation can be done at material level not any reference..like big bottling plants,automobile industries

    Example : for the 100oz container of a Coke can - If x is manufacturer of this cokecans then he will be producing like 100,000 each day and he will be confirming against the material -cokecans.Here the volume is high and is reptivie in nature..

    let me know if this information helps on REM ( usually called for Repetitive manufacturin)

    Thanks and Regards,

    Hi,

    Production types:

    Discrete Manufacturing:

    Order controlled production with production orders.

    Process Orders:

    Order controlled production with process orders.

    Project Oriented Production :

    Project oriented production with production lots.

    Repetitive Manufacturing:

    Period and quantity oriented production(not order related)

    Kanban:

    Replinishment controlled using stock transfer,self controlled cycle

    Discrete Manufacturing:

    1.Oredr related production

    2.Steadily changing product

    3.differing sequence of different work centers

    4.complex routing

    5.Interim storage for semi finished products

    6.Material staging order based ( reservation, picking)

    7.Back flushing per order

    8.cost monitoring order based

    Production order

    Repetitive Manufacturing:

    1.Quantity and period based Production

    2. same/ similar products are produced over a long period of time

    3.line based continuous flow

    4.simple routing

    5. No interim storage for semi finished products

    6. material staging period based

    7. back flushing period and qty based

    8.cost monitoring period based Product cost collector

    9. Planned order ( run schedule qty)

    Regards,

    nandha

    REM :

    MAKE TO STOCK

    DEPEND ON PLANNED ORDER/ FORCOST

    SAME PRODUCT FOR LONG TIME PERIOD

    ROUTING IS SAME (REPETATIVE)

    COST CONTROL BY PRODUCT COST CONTROLLER

    PLANNED ORDER RUN ON PROD VERSION

    DISCRETE:

    MAKE TO ORDER

    DEPEND ON SALES ORDER

    MANY PRODUCT VARY FOR TIME TO TIME(DISCRETE)

    ROUTING IS VARIABLE SINCE DIFF PROUCTS

    COST CONTROL ARE BASED ON PRODUCTION ORDER

    PRODUCTS CHANGED FREQUENTLY DEPEND ON THE PRODUCTION ORDER

    PROCESS:

    PROCESS ORDER BASED MFG

    BUILT IN SAMPLE PROCESS FOR SPECIFIC PROCESS INDT

    COPY THE RECEIPES AND ADJUST AS YOU LIKE

    MORMALY FOR CHEMICAL RELATED MFG

    EX: CHEMICAL INDT,PHARAMETICAL,BEEVERAGE,FOOD MFG AND ETC

    BATCH ORIENTED PROCESS MFG

    PP-PI PLANNING IS SUPPORT

    PROCESSING OF BATCH PRODUCTS ALSO
