Sales and Production process

Hi all,

I have a question :

the current flow concerns a service provided by a company : The company creates a free PO for goods and packing and then go through a production process. A finished good is created and non valuated (no price in material master). A sales order is then created with a manual price representing the creation of the finished good (i.e the production process)

Is this process ok or is there a standard process provided by SAP ?

I looked at the customer consignment scenario but I don't think it applies to this business case as I understood that stock was supposed to belong to the company and not the customer until it consumes it (valuation of stock issue)

Is the FERT being sold out externally or internal transfer only? If it is only transfer, the standard way to transfer the material from storage location to storage location is via MB1B with movement type 311. If this is not your requirement, you need to explain in detail

I'm not an expert but you lost me at "The company creates a free PO ...". What is "free PO"? PO could mean both "purchase order" and "production order". Which one is it? How is it related to the rest of the process? What exactly triggers production? Why sales order seems to come in last? You might want to explain the process in more detail in plain language (who is vendor/customer, what is the company doing exactly, etc.).

Consignment certainly does not apply due to ownership, you're correct. But then I wonder why is this not just a regular "make to order" (MTO) process? What is so special and what data are you expecting to capture in the process? What FI postings will need to occur? There are many questions to be answered when choosing the right process.

Standard Individual purchase order process in SD may satisfy your requirement.

But In this process, Sales order created first followed by PR(purchase requisition)-Pl discuss with your client & You can have all the required info in Google.

****I looked at the customer consignment scenario but I don't think it applies to this business case as I understood that stock was supposed to belong to the company and not the customer until it consumes it (valuation of stock issue)***

You can use consignment process too here- by using different methods (Consignment fill-up & Consignment issue)-But it all depends on your client process.Provide more details as asked.

Hi Felix,

Let me contribute with what l know about that process in a standard way:

1. Creation of the production order.

2. If external process is required, an outbound delivery of componends should be created.

3. That will be taken into one Account

4. A cost element is added

5. Valuation

6. Planned delivery time or Standard will be determined based in the Control key.

7. Purchase Requisition creation (With a production scheduler)

8. Purchase Order creation based on Purchase Requisition

9. Output process (printer or EDI)

10. Semifinished product? no existense of the material yet, transparent process on going.(((Provision not possible via delivery note or Goods movement)))

11. creation of a Special output

12. Delivery note created for the external process operation

13. If product finished, ship back the material

14. Make a Good Receipt in Warehouse

15. Confirm the operation

16. Purchase Order and Production order will be updated accordinly at the end of all.

Att, Leonardo de Freitas
