SAP PP CM21 - prod orders remain visible when order qty equal the conf and delv qty


in CM21 the production orders remain visible even though the delivered and confirmed qty equals the order qty. When the users planned to produce e.g. 20 pc and already 15 has been confirmed and they see they will not produce the remaining 5 pc, they open the production order and decrease the order qty from 20 to 15 PC. the status is delivered and confirmed (just not final confirmed). The order are ten still visible in cm21...

the users claim that before, when we used capacity type 002 - person- in the work center, they were doing that way and the production orders were not visible in CM21 after the decrease of order qty to the qty already confirmed and delivered. They claim that after we changed from person to machine type in the work center the issue appeared.(before 002 - person - was used as capacity and scheduling relevant, now is machine - 001).

what might be the reason?

thank you in advance for any useful hints?

    Are you actually posting an operation confirmation or only a goods receipt to your order?

    Operation capacity should be reduced when the operation is confirmed and the settings to control the capacity reduction are defined for each capacity at the work center level in tab capacities. If you are actually posting a confirmation, then you should check if the Control Capacity Reduction settings are the same for each capacity in your work center.

    Hi Caetano,

    thank you for responding to my query.

    We do the confirmations, yes. The capacity reduction settings in the work center are the same for both capacities = formula related.
