Mapping of production process in chemical industries


Hi Experts

I am new in sap process mapping for chemical industries. We want to implement SAP in our clint chemical plants.. can anybody suggest a how to mapping of process in SAP.

Our clint is manufacturing some chemical. Total process will take 15 days (from issue of material to first reactor and getting output). During this process material passed through 4 to 5 reactors. Some where we are getting intermediate material in stock. Some solvent are use in chemical process and getting back from same process. This recovered solvent is distilled in distillation plant and again used in next reaction.. Active ingredient are also coming in picture. For examples characteristics values.

Requesting clarification on below points

1. Whether we should go for REM or Process order ? ( Clint wants a batch wise costing not standard costing).

2.Whether we create a single process order for whole reaction ( 15 Days). If yes then how to receive a by products in varies stages of reaction, How cost reporting at month end.

3.or Whether we create different process order for every reactor. and what are advantages by creating reactor wise order ?

4.Whether we treat to recovered solvent as a co product or By Products? How to use equivalence number for apportionment of cost to co products.

Thanks for the Replay in Advance
