Please explain how to make GR for co-products with respect to order.

    Hi,

    For Coproduct please do the following setting:

    1. Create material master for coproduct, in this make tick mark in coproduct in MRP2 view.

    2. For main material also make tick mark in MRP2 view as a coproduct.

    3. Assign the coproduct as a line item in the BOM with negative sign.

    4. In BOM, indicate coproduct indicator in item detail screen.

    5. In main material of MRP2 view or in costing view assign Joint production. In this give Equalance no. for costing purpose.

    6. Create a prod order, and after confirming, do goods receipt.

    7. When you do GR by MB31 101mvt system will post stock for main material & coproduct material simultaneously.

    8. When you do GR, you can check the stock posting for both material in MB31 screen.

    9. Moreover coproduct is not posted by 531 mvt.

    Regards,

    Dharma

    Hi,

    Your problem is totaly Reverse with the acutal condition.Actualy in Co Product scenario you can not make GI of Header Material and Co product during Confiramtion (Automatic Goods movement not possible with Co product scenario) You have to do manual GR with refrence to order through MB31 and in your case you have problem with MB31.

    You have to set Qty of Co - product material in -Ve sign and also mark as a co - product in BOM.Due to this setting Goods movemen or GI of this co - product material is done with Movement type 531 and it should be connfirm via MB31 or MIGO.

    Hi,

    In CO11N you can make all goods movements with respect to order including 531 for co-product.

    Hi ,

    Change Co-product Qty in BOM as -ve.

    Assign the Co-product to an operation, where u r getting the output.

    when u confirm the operation , co-product will come in to stock through movement 531.

    Hi,

    You said properly that co-product is confirmed via mvt 101. The others are likely to have thought of by-product - it is confirmed by mvt 531 automatically.

    As it was said it is not possible to confirm co-product automatically - sorrowfully.

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_47x200/helpdata/en/b1/c04d01439a11d189410000e829fbbd/frameset.htm

    However, your problem is not this I think. If your settings are OK (co-product indicator is flagged for BOM-header material on MRP2 of material master and for the co-product (BOM-item) itself in the BOM, -qty for co-product in BOM) SAP should propose in MB31+101 both main and co-product.

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_47x200/helpdata/en/89/a433e6461e11d182b50000e829fbfe/frameset.htm

    Please check your settings. (And if you book in MB31 do not give order item number for PrdOrd).

      Hi Jejesh,

      First of all u have to maintain your co-product in your BOM with quantity as -ve.

      Now if you want to backflush your co-product then you have to maintain backflush as "1" in MRP2 view of material master.

      Now while doing order confirmation click on "Goods Movement"

      there u will see your Co-Product. Save the transaction.

      Hope it will help u.

      Regards

      Ashish

    Hi

    For co-product there is no need to take GR.

    When u will do the confirmation of production order stock will update of co-product against 531 mvt. type & production order.

    In BOM assign co-product with - sign in component.

    Regards

    Ashish R

    Hi Jejesh

    as some others already say within the PP module it's not possible to do the goods movement of a co-product withint the confirmation.

    But if you use the IS-MILL enhancement this is possible, please review SAP note 1063323 for example, here it's explain that in case of using MILL the function you want is possible.

    In case of non using MILL please see for further explanation note 38108

    Maybe this helps.

    Regards,

    Sabine

    Jejesh,

    Check whether system is proposing your Co-Product when Issuing Components - MB1A or MIGO_Issue. If yes then you have defined the material for Bi-Product.

    You need to activate the Co-Product Indicator in the material master for both header and component material, assign equivalence number to the header material - Joint production defination. Also assign the component with -Ve quantity in the BOM.

    Regards,

    Prasobh
