Production Order not cifed

Hi Experts,

May I kindly ask for your expert opinion regarding my problem. When I had cifed the Production Order, it returns the message "sequence-dependent setup activity does not have a mode". I searched for an OSS note and had found out that this error appears when there is no capacity seen. However, when I had checked the work centers and routing, the capacity is maintained. I had seen that the Production Order is technically completed. Could there be an issue when trying to send a technically completed Production Order to APO system? It is partially completed though coz the whole quantity in the production order is not yet delivered.

Hoping for a reply from you.

Thanks a lot.

Sincerely Yours,

Ria

    Hi, Ria,

    I feel that it's not CIF issue at all.

    When Production Order is with TECO status, it won't be visible in R/3 Stock reqmt. list (MD04). It's no more relevant for Planning.

    If it's open & Partially confirmed then it can be used as a Receipt element & Will be considered as a Receipt in Planning. But as it's TECOed, it's no more planning relevent & it won't be transferred in APO. Trust in my project we are TECOing hundreds of Process Orders every Week. Then & Then we are Doing Planning as we don't want to consider old Open Process Orders in APO Planning.

    Hope it Helps You.

    Regards,

    Hardik

    Hi,

    please check the material list of the order if there are any materials wich are manually added during the order confirmation. This error could happen if a material is not assigned to the correct activity or only to the superordinate operation. In that case the system assigns this material to the first activity (setup acticity) and this is not allowed in APO. This error appears normaly only in the time period between (partially) confirmation and technically completeness.

    Kind regards,

    Christian

      OK. I assume that you need any components like raw materials or semi finised goods for your production!? The components are maintained in the BOM. And in the production version you define the assignment between BOM positions an the activities from the recipe. If you need any additional material for your production, it is possible to add them manually during order confirmation. In that step it is necessary to assign it to an activity. For the materials that come from the BOM it is already done in the production version. To check the assignment use transaction COR3. Enter order number and press the materials button. In column 'Activity' all materials must be assigned to the correct production activity. Also check that it is not empty. In that special case the system assigns it during cif to the first activity. And that could be the setup activity. If you don't use process orders (PP-PI) i think you have to use CO03...

    Though work centers and routing, the capacity is maintained in R3.Please check if Mode is maintained for seqeuence dependant activities in PPM in APO.

    Dear Ria,

    regarding your comment "One more thing is that when I send the order to APO, there is no error in the queue, but the Production Order remains in the CCR Report." look at Note 650914 - CCR incorrectly displays orders as missing in APO.
