    4 Procurement Of Bought Items C1A Procure to Stock Components in stock for Manufacturing C1A Scenario C1A Scenario C1A Scenario

    5 Convert Planned Order to Production Order Production Process to start Production Planner CO41, CO40 Production Order is created

    6 Capacity Leveling When manual changes are required Production Planner CM28 / CM01 Capacity leveled

    7 Goods Issue Once components have been delivered to the manufacturing floor Warehouse Clerk MB1A / MB26 Goods issue (material document) of components

    8 Completion Confirmation for Production Order Once all operations have been completed Manufacturing CO11N / CO12 / Confirmation of all operations

    9 Goods Receipt for Sales Order stock When the manufactured material arrives at its Production storage location Manufacturing MB31 Goods receipt (material document), with sales order stock

    10 Delivery Creation Delivery for Sales Order Stores VL10C Delivery is created

    [Make To Order|]


    Make-to-Order (MTO) Production


    The planning strategies explained in this section are designed for the production of a material for a specific individual sales order. In other words, you do not want to produce finished products until you receive a sales order. This means that make-to-order strategies always support a very close customer-vendor relationship, because your sales orders are closely linked to production.

    The same relationship exists between the sales order and production that exists in a make-to-order environment. Make-to-order is also used in the following environments.

    Production using variant configuration



    Choose a make-to-order strategy, if:

    The materials are segregated. In other words, they are uniquely assigned to specific sales orders.

    Costs must be tracked at sales order level and not on material level.

    Make-to-order strategies should always be combined with lot-size key EX (lot-for-lot. Rounding values should not be used. If you maintain rounding values, they have no effect due to the make-to-order properties of these strategies.

    Process Flow

    There are extensive options that enable you to procure components especially for specific sales order items.

    You may, however, want to use a different planning strategy to procure components without sales orders. This allows you to keep your replenishment lead time to a minimum. You can do this by:

    Planning on the basis of the finished product (see Planning Without Final Assembly (50) or Planning with a Planning Material (60))

    Planning at component level (see Strategies for Planning Components)

    Using consumption-based or Kanban-controlled components

    Customer stock can exist on any BOM level. See Stockkeeping at Different BOM Levels for more information.

    Because production is closely linked to sales orders, this results in a customer section in the stock/requirements list.

    Unplanned goods receipts (such as returns) cannot, as a rule, be used for other sales orders, even if they are in working order, unless they are adapted to meet a customer's needs.

    In the basic make-to-order strategy, Make-to-Order Production (20), no specific product structures are required. This means that it does not matter if the material has a BOM or not. The material can be produced in-house, or it can be procured externally. No planning is involved in this strategy.

    Planning Without Final Assembly (50) and Planning with a Planning Material (60) do require a specific product structure (i.e. a BOM, which means materials are always produced in-house). These planning strategies assume that you want to plan procurement (production or purchasing) of your components by planning the finished products. This means that you need to have a fairly stable demand for your finished products. If, however, you can plan more easily at component level than at finished product level, see Strategies for Planning Components.

    Keep Sapping

    Dear Raj,

    Make-to-order production is a process in which a product is individually manufactured for a particular customer. In contrast to mass production for an unspecified market where a material is manufactured many times, in make-to-order production a material is created only once though the same or a similar production process might be repeated at a later time.

    2. You can use make-to-order production: (a) For branches of industry or products where a small quantity of products with a large number of different characteristics are manufactured (b) When a product has to be assembled particularly for a sales order.

    3. Stock keeping is not usually carried out for products that are made to order. In companies using make-to-order production, the demand program only determines the production area, in which various variant types are produced. Depending on how you track the costs associated with make-to-order production, there are two ways to process make-to-order items during sales order processing.

    (a) Make to order using sales order

    (b) Make to order using project system (not relevant for SD application)

    4. for make to order production using the sales order, all costs and revenues involved for an order item are held collectively at that item. A particular rule is used that can be changed manually to transfer costs to profitability analysis.

    5. Make to order production is largely a production planning configuration. It is also controlled by the requirements type, which is determined by three things

    the strategy group (MRP 3) in MMR

    the MRP group (MRP1) in MMR

    the item category and MRP type (MRP 1)

    6. Make-to-order production is controlled by the requirements type. The requirements type is determined on the basis of the MRP group (MRP1) and the strategy group (MRP3) in the material master record. In addition, a plant must be assigned for make-to-order items in the sales order.


    First Create a material with MM

    Basic data1:

    Give Material name : Cycle

    Material group : 010

    Division : MA

    Net Weight : 10 Kg's

    Gross Weight : 10Kgs.

    Sales: Sales org.1 :

    Base Unit of Measure : EA

    Delivering Plant : RAMA

    Output Tax : 1 ( Full tax)

    Sales: General/Plant :

    Availability Check : 01 ( Daily Requirements)

    Trans.,group : 001

    Loading Group : 0003

    MRP 1:

    MRP Group : 020 ( Make to Order Production)

    MRP type : PD (MRP)

    MRP controller : 000

    Lot size : EX ( Lot-for-Lot order quantity)

    MRP 2:

    In-house Production : 1

    Schedule Margin Key : 000


    Forecast Model : D (Constant Model)

    Accounting 1:

    Price control : V ( Variable Price)

    Variable Price : 4000

    Price Unit : 1

    Then enter & Save.

    Material 769 created.

    Create a Sales order with VA;

    Order type : OR

    Sales Organization : RAMA

    Distribution Channel : RA

    Division : MA

    Sales Office : RAMA

    Sales Group : RAM, .............. Enter

    Sold to Party: 6000000000

    PO number : 55 , PO Date : 04.06.2007.

    Item Overview Tab:

    Material 769, Quantity : 100

    Enter & Save the Document.

    Sales Order 8212 Created

    Create Production Order with CO:

    Enter Sales order number: 8212, Item No. 10

    Order type: PP, Enter

    Click on FLAG,

    Select Generate Operation and enter NO,

    save the Document.

    Production Order Created: 60002725

    Confirm the Production Order with CO15.

    Enter Production Order No. 600075 and save the Document.

    Now the confirmation Order will be saved.

    Create Goods Receipts with MB31.

    Movement type: 101

    Order: 6002725

    Plant: RAMA

    Storage Location: RAMA

    Enter and Save, you will get Document Posted: 50000068931posted.

    Check the Stock Position with MMBE

    Material: 769

    Plant: RAMA

    Storage Location: RAMA

    Execute (F8), here we can see the stock at Sales Order Stock.

    Create Delivery with VL01N, Billing with VF01 and Post to Accounts

    Do let me know in case of any queries.

    Hope this helps you.
