PP Doubt

Hi,

I am entirely new to SAP-production planning. Can someone please explain to me the logic flow involving sales order, pruchase requisitions ,purchase orders etc. Or better still..it would be great if i can get a link which explains the end-end business scenario in PP.Moreover MRP run shows a tab sales order stock, what does this signify? and how does MRP run decide PP? any links to such topics would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in anticipation.

Thanks and regards,

Deepthi

    Hi Deepti,

    First of all demand is generated for the product to be produced through demand management. It calculated the quantities to produce and the time for the final assembly.

    The data from demand management is transferred to MRP. The data from demand mgt can come from Customer Sales Order (firm) or Planned Order (forecast).

    The MRP checks for the availability of material at various stages of BOM. In case material is not available MRP generated planned order and Purchase requisition for production of components in house and procurement from vendor respectively.

    The planned orders are converted into production order by the planner and the purchase requisition are converted into purchase order by the purchaser.

    Production in charge converts the planned order to production order and carries out the production activities once the order is released for production. Production is carried out as per the operation steps provided in the routing. Work centers are also mentioned with each operation in the routings where these operations are to be carried out.

    Once the production is completed production confirmation is done and goods movement (delivery created) takes place.

    Please refer the link,

    Customer stock is sales order stock which manage separately according to indivisual customer.

    Hi Brahmankar,

    Thank you very much for the reply, but before i close this thread, i have one more doubt. I have a sales order for a material which is externally procured. Now when i ran MRP, it has created a PR and moved to the temporarily assigned tab, but i would like to have it unders the 'Sales Order Stock' tab..ie: the 'E' tab.

    Can you please tell me when MRP assigns a sales order to the E tab. Also i am unable to convert the PR created by MRP to a PO. Isnt there any transaction using which i can direcly convery a PR to PO with all the PR details copied to the PO?

    Thank you for the response.

    Thanks and Best Regards,

    Deepthi

      Hi,

      but i would like to have it unders the 'Sales Order Stock' tab..ie: the 'E' tab.

      To get Special stock 'E' , strategy must be Make to Order ie, 20. So P.R assign to sales order. In MRP 4 view you have to maintain Individual requirement in material master for FG & for raw material select individual or blank.

      Isnt there any transaction using which i can direcly convery a PR to PO with all the PR details copied to the PO?

      Check is there release procedure to convert P.R to P.O.

      Regards,
