Make to Order Scenario Process Flow

Hi Friends -

I am looking for simple Make to Order scenario with BOM Components with Routing.

The process flow I want to execute -

1. Create a Sales Order for a Finished Product (Product should have a BOM for Production)

2. Do the product Materials Planning for the Sales Order through MD50

3. Get all the dependent material requirements (both for products as Planned Order and also for BOM Components - all the BOM components should also be planned)

4. Convert Planned Order for Product to Production Order

5. Convert Planned Orders for BOM components to Purchase Requisition

6. Confirm Production Order

Pls correct me if I my process flow is wrong or requires modification.

I will appreciate if you can validate the above process flow and guide me to execute the same in the system.

Pls help me on configuring the system and setting up the materials and related master data for the same.

Thanks in advance

Purnendu

    Please create the BOM in CS01 for the material (I hope you are referring to production BOM and not sales BOM). When you run the MRP for the header material i.e. material in the sale order, planned orders/PRs will be generated for all the component materials based on the procurement type. You can convert the planned orders/PRs and proceed further.

    Regards,

    GSL.

      Dear GSL - I have created a Universal BOM (Type 3) for the product. Maintained a raw material as a component in the BOM.

      But when I execute Single Item, Multiple level Sales order planning through MD50 I am only getting planning results for Product only. I am not getting anything on my components.

      I have tried using both Individual and Collective as well as Collective Requirements only onthe MRP 4 View. But nothing worked.

      I have also checked the component stock requirements list and nothing is reflected there for the sales order requirements.

      Pls help me on how to get the dependent requirements.

      Thanks and warm regards

      Dear GSL - Pls check the following details

      1. I have created a Material Master data for Finished Product (FERT).

      2. I have assigned Item Category Group - 0004, and General Item Category group as 0004 ( Make to Order / Assembly).

      3. I have assigned MRP Type PD in MRP 1 View and Strategy Group 20 (Make to Order Production) in MRP 3 View.

      4. Now created a Universal (Type 3) BOM for the product with one material component.

      5. Now also created a Routing for the Material with two operations having PP01 a control key.

      6 When I try to create a Sales Order for the finished material it is giving message

      Configuration not possible for material 747 : Reason 3 --> Help

      Message no. V1360

      Diagnosis

      This may have been caused by one of the following:

      1. The configuration profile for the material allows or requires the bill of materials to be exploded during order processing. However, a plant has not been specified in the item.

      2. The configuration profile of the material allows or requires the bill of materials to be exploded during order processing, but the order quantity in the item must be greater than 0.

      3. A configuration profile has not been maintained

      or

      A configuration is not permitted for the material

      or

      4. The configuration profile of the material allows or requires the bill ofmaterials to be exploded during order processing. However, the system could not determine a date because important data is missing from the item (see incompletion log).

      This message is also coming in the Incompletion log f the sales order.

      I have not checked the Configurable Indicator for the material in the Basic Data 2 view of the materials master, but still the message related to Configuration is coming.

      Pls help e on this.

      Thanks and warm regards

    Are you using configurable materials? If not, try the same scenario with NORM as item category group in the material master.

      Dear GSL - Thanks a lot for your response. With Item Category and Item Category Group NORM I can create Sales Order for the Product.

      Now where do I find the BOM components for this material in the Sales Order?

      Also I want to plan this material through MD50.

      If I ran MD50 for the sales order it creates Planned Order for the product (based on the settings).

      How do I make sure that the BOM components are also planned while the product is planned?

      I have checked the component Stock Requirement List - there are no requirements generated from the Sales Order Product BOM.

      Pls help me on this. How to do this so that the raw material components are also planned?

      Thanks
