For Externally Procured Materials (ex - ROH) - SG's are maintained or not?

Hello

Do I need to maintain SG's ( like SG10, 40, 70) for ROH as these are externally procured?

As I see since ROH are externally procured, no need to maintain the SG (10, 40, 70,etc) in MRP 3 view of the ROH* material master as SG's (10, 40, 70)* are meant for maintianing PIRS & PIRs means it is inhouse production

Iam not limiting myself to SG's (10,40, 70) for ROH, instead any SG need not be maintained for ROH (externally procured)

If I want to see that ROH materials get consumed by the FERT then maintain SG 40/70 for the FERT/HALB (inhouse production) that should consume the ROH (externally procured)

Questions:

Q.For externally procured materials do I need to maintain the SG?

Q. If no need to maintain SG's for externally procured materials then what fields do I need to maintain to see that externally procured material which are used in the finished product gets consumed by sales orders?

Please clarify

Thank You

    Hi Eshwer,

    Generally u need not maintain any SG for ROH, only thing u have to maitain Proc key = F for External Procurement.

    If the External procurement material is semei finished u have to set Proc key/ spec proc type = F / 30 IN MRP VIEW.

    Planning strategy group defined at Finished material level will take care of down level material.

    For u second question, i am not clear, In MTO scenario if u want to produce and consume the all down level material against requiremnts of top level material (sale order of FERT) u have to set Individual/coll = 1 or blank at MRR of Down level material.

    Regards

      Hi Eshwer,

      Generally two types of subcontracting process is used in SAP

      If u want to Operation sub Contracting - Maintain control key allows the external processing. Maintaining F/30 is depends on type of material to be sent and received from vendor.

      Material sub contracting - u send the raw material to vendor and receive as semi material u have to maintain F/30 for semi material.

      Second point, I am very sorry it is a typing mistake (MRP).

      Regards

    For Raw Materials you can use Consumption based Planning Strategy according to your requirements ,for eg Manual Reorder Point,Auto ROP ,Forecast based planning.

    Hi

    1) As replied by PP consultant. You can use consumption based planning with Manual reorder point. The MRP type used for this is VB.

    2) Semi finished and ROH will not consumed by sales order. Through BOM explosion this will be planned through MRP based on the MRP type and lot size.

    3) If any semifinished components are procurred externally, they will be also consider as ROH only as far as SAP is concerned.
