Process Order fields


I'm basically new to PP-PI and could anyone explain me the process flow.

1.when we create process order what the fields Total quantity, Delivered and Expected Yield Variance means.

2. should we do confirmation of process order to get in to process(production) or when we save process order means that it can go in process(production).then why do we need to confirm or is it like a goods receip in MM for Purch Order?

3. where do the data stores(table and field) for the output for the process order.

4. If we want to check that how much quantity was scheduled to produce and how is actually produced and whats the variance......where do we look this data.

Can you please explain me ASAP as it very urgent and important to me.

Thank you in Advance

    Hi Mittu,

    The Process flow for PP-PI is the Order is created from MRP/Planned orders or Manually. The order is scheduled, planned cost is determined and capacity is calculated during creation or during release or during saving the order based on the setting we maintain in Production scheduling profile.

    Then based on the reservations materials are issued for the order. After the operation/phases are completed we confirm the production order. Confirming production order is nothing but we tell the system that the production is completed. and we give information about how much man power or machine hours spent. Material usage will be calculated from the Goods issue to the order. By using these informations the system calculate the cost of the order.While Confirming the order the Yield quanity is given. If quality inspection is very much extensive then PI Sheet is maintained.The cost is calculated from the confirmations. After that the WIP- work In progress, Variance are calculated. And finally the order is settled,Technically completed and closed.

    Once the GR for order is done the Quantity Delivered field isautomatically get updated. And if the quantity delivered is different from order quantity i.e scheduled quantity then the expected Yield variance is calculated. If the yield is more then the value of yield variance is "+" and if the yield is less then the quantity is "-".

    Your doubt is what are the fields

    1.Total quantiy - this is the order quantity you enter during order creation i.e

    scheduled quantity.

    2.Delivered - This is the quanitity gets automaically updated from the Goods

    Receipt for Order transaction

    3.Expected Yield Variance- This is the yield variance calculated after the

    confirmation of order.

    4."AFRUD" is the table used for storing output informations.

    5. To see the scheduled quanity ,produced quanity and yield variance go to transaction "CORT" Display Process order confirmation and input the Process order number and press enter.

    Hope the above clarifies your queries. Kindly revert back for any more clarifiations.

    thanks and regards

    Total Qty = Quantity scheduled for the order

    Delievred = Actually produced (GR done for the order).

    Exp yield varience: The expected shirtfall in GR for the order based on operation yield loss (say opn qty is 100 and you do a final confirmation for the operation for 95. The 5 Nos is expected to be ashortfall. This is expressed in percenrage)

    COnfirmation is to track the progress of order individual operations/phases and to capture the cost.

    GR is when you bring in the stock in to system after performing all operations.

    You can get the order reports in COID. Scheduled and Delivered. Check the options there.

    I am not discouraging you asking questions but I think you should go to SAP help and learn the basics and Process Orders. Check this link:

    Be clear that Delieved qty comes from Goods receipt. It is not manually entered in the order. Expected is for the Yield variance - means you expect a shortfall in the yield when the order is in progress due to operation yield loss.

    Now planned orders are different and Process orders are different. You can convert planned orders to process orders. I am not sure what excatly you are looking for.

    Planned orders are found in PLAF. Process orders are found in AUFK or AFKO.

    Hope this is useful.

      Hello Ram

      I totally understand your point.......i have gone to but i dont have that much to go through the docs......thats the reason i have approached forums because i am not from PP and its a bit tough for me understand and remember .

      I'm sorry guys if this is not the right approach but i could think only this as i have time constraints......

      Anyways thanks

    The process flow of PP-PI is mentioned below:

    you can check with the transaction code COID-Process Order Info System. In this T.code, you can see all the process order details such as settlement rule creation, varaince calculation, order of total quantity & etc.

    This COID is the 'Detailed List of Order Header' but COOIS is the production order info system only.

    If any clarification, please feel free.
