Material Pair - Production order

Hi SAP Experts,

my customer is assembling material pairs (left/right) which are defined as different material numbers. The requirement is to have some sort of linkage between the production order of the right part and the production order of the left part.

We have thought already about these solutions:

- co product: if the yield of the production order is different between right and left part the automatic booking of the component consumption based on the entered yield in the confirmation does not work (can not be entered seperatly for right and left part). Material consumption should be calculated automaticially based on the yield entered at the confirmation

- order combination function with Mill_OC transaction: Confirmation is done in SAP ME solution. It can not handle the combined order.

Does anyone have experiences with handling such material pairs?

    Hi Martin,

    Did you tried this scenario with Phantom Assembly, by declaring the Right & Left parts as the BOM Components of this Phantom Material ?

    Hope this will helps, kindly check & revert back with your comments/feedback, please

    Hello Raja,

    thanks for your answer.

    I already thought about this. But the demand is coming from the sales order where we have each material individually. Therefore the indivdual requirement from MRP is already on the right/left part level. If i create a production order for the new level above i would create additional demand.

    But i will think about that once more....
