Routing / Prod Version - Issue


I have one doubt or may be i am not fully clear about it......

We have materials which are externally procured i.e. F & so there is no routing for them. But while doing settlement; we get error that "cannot find master recipe / routing for the order"......Why is it so? Was there some mistake while costing or how to rectify this

Seconly we have few materials with type E which have 2 BOM's & 2 routings but there was no production versions and while settlement it gave same error "cannot find master recipe / routing for the order"......

We have already settled and closed it but how will this impact from finance point of view & how to resolve them for future

Can you please comment on above issues and clear the doubt

    Dear Vicky,

    As per error there must be problem is in Costing data in Material Master data.

    For Externally procurred item Do not cost indicator is on or if material is procurred from alternate plant in that case you have assign special procument key for the relevent plant from wheere system finds the BOM and master recipe etc.

    In short if your material is procurred externaly in that case

    1) Procument type in MRP 1 is F(externaly procurred)

    2) Do not cost indicator in costing data 1 should be ON.

      Hi Vicky,

      System will take first operation with group cntr 1 as default if you maitain two routings so PV is MANDATORY. The reason why it said no routing found can't be linked to the presence of multiple routings. As far as settlement is concerned, it is just balancing the production costs and variances as well as other costs involved and maintaining them in the right account. So if you try to settle a TECO order there is no point of doing settlement but you will only archive it. Settlement cannot be done.

      System generates its own op and gives the status OPGN if there is no routing found. Only after you get that warning you choose to generate a task list and hence OPGN is achieved.

      Warm Regards,

    Hi vicky

    During settlement the cost which are stored in production order should be settled to the FI account. It should be either Credit Or debit account.

    For which we have to selecte the appropriate Receivers in settlement profile.

    For externally procured items. It should be settled to material account not to the cost center account. Please check.

    for your second question please in change mode CO02 . look your prod order details in operation over view and component over view whether BOM and Routing is selected.

    Because it cannot tell in final settlement " cannot find master recipe / routing" Error should be in the beginning itself while creating prod order.

    Please check again the settlement receivers.

    Hope this is clear

    Hi Vicky,

    Why you want to settlement for externally procured materials. Say ROH.

    If you create demand & run MRP, system will generate order for HALB & FERT material. You have to settle those orders. But what is the necessary to settle ROH.
