Hi All,

I am working for SAP implementation and facing following issue.

for production of a product, they need PVC film (component) which comes with 100 kg as a roll. Now in production order this material needed only 10 kg. Now during goods issue they can not cut the PVC film bundle to 10 kg and issue. If they issue entire 100 kg to one production order, it will become a problem for the next production order, as stock is not available. How to handle this situation in SAP. Please guide.

Why is it not possible to make a goods issue with unit KG ? In practical, how are they using only 10 kg from a 100 kg roll as you are not suppose to cut the roll and the material comes with roll only?

you need 100% understand what is happening in your shop floor.

come and see (or talk in details to a relevant stock controller) how they use consume/scrap that PVC film during production run

and what non-sap documents (papers or other inputs) they use to record a consumption. check it and come back to us.

Instead of posting a goods issue when the production starts, you should move it to a "production storage location". In this storage location you will cut the PVC film and consume only 10 kg using backflush. The remaining quantity would stay in the production storage location for the next order, or you can return it to the warehouse.

Transaction MF60 can be used to automate the transfer from the warehouse to the production storage location.

1. kindly check what is the unit of production for this PVC film bundle in Shop floor while execution. So that you can maintain the same and issue according to that which will result in less issue quantity from stores/warehouse.

2. If you want to follow the above process you can issue 100 kg and and after consumption you can reverse the excess quantity.
