    Dear Mr.Rajsingh,

    Backflushing is generally used in REM - Repetitive Manufacturing.

    While doing the Assembly backflush in MFBF ,as per in the REM profile if allowed

    GI backflush at GR posting,then 261 & 131 movement happens at the same time.

    In the same REM profile if allowed Reprocessing - (create Cumulated Post

    Processing records),then only 131 movement is carried out & the errors are further

    cleared using MF47 list.

    If useful reward points.

    Regards

    Mangal

    Dear Raj, Let me add something to Managal's reply. This Backflushing takes place in PPPI environment too. It is basically an auto posting applicable to consumption items and even finished products with different movement types..

    Dear,

    Backflushing means automatic goods issue when u confirm your operation.This is done through movement type 261.

    Hi

    Backflushing is automatically issue of materials against production orders.

    This can be activated in Mat master,work center or routing or in production order.

    When you do the confirmation of the order the materials will be issued and 261 movement will take place for the materials.

    Backflush is used to issue when a order contains lot of materials and to avoid manual posting in MB1A

    Regards

    Hi,

    To produce a material Halb/Fert we consume raw material. Suppose we use 100 nos of ROH to produce 100 nos of Halb then we can set a backflush indicator.

    When we confirm the production order for Halb then the system will automatically backflush (ie reduce the consumed qty of ROH).

    This backflush indicator can be set in the material master, workcenter basic data tab page & in routing in the component allocation tab page.

    Also you can set this for one particular production order in the componen (item) detail tab page.

    When we use backflush, we need not do the mb1a 261 movement.

    Commonly used in Repetitive manufacturing scenarios.

    Regards,

    SDS
