What happens after backflusing?


Can anyone tell that how are final confirmations / backflushings linked to costing...and settlement for any particular material i.e.

what exactly is the scenario after doing final backflusing..& how is this linked to product cost collector and cost estimates as many times i face issues linked with it??

    Dear Vicky,

    Generally Backflushing is used in REM scenario's.

    1.After master data creation like material master,BOM,Rate routing,Production

    version,a product cost collector is must for a HALB & FERT items.

    2.Without a Product Cost Collector you can not carryout backflushing function

    using MFBF.

    3.For a normal REM scenario after doing backflushing GI,GR,actvities are posted.

    4.The cost of the material consumed + activity cost+overhead cost(if any

    assigned in the material master) = Production cost ,which can be seen in product

    cost collector.

    5.You can double click on each cost item and check the details.

    6.GI,GR carried out after backflush means ,261 & 131 movements will be carried

    out.If Quality management is not active ,then you can see the stock gets

    increased for the parent material and the stock gets reduced for the child items.

    7.So if you carryout assembly backflush or activity backflush or component back

    flush the cost gets accumulated in the product cost collector,and if you

    reverse,the cost gets reduced accordingly.

    Hi Vicky

    When ever backflushign happen that means it is issueing material from Inventory so material document is generated which updates inventory cost also

    and issue material updates cost where it is been issued like production order or sales order

    debit/credit takes place when ever there is tansfer of material
