Solution for production that can repeating previous operation

Dear SAPper,

currently we have tile client.

The producion operation can repeat previous operation of the result is not good.

for example the current process :

crushing -> weighting -> milling -> spray drying -> pressing -> glazing -> firing ->sorting -> firing


At the result of glazing before enter firing cabin, if the color is not good (too dark) then they can repeat the opreation glazing again


At the result of the first firing before sorting, the color to dard, the operation glazing is repeated again.

How can i maintain the producion flow for repeated operation (optional repeating if the color to dark)?

Any idea is very appreciated.

Best regards,

    This seems like rework kind of scenario . For such scenario you have 3 option

    1) Insert one or couple of operation

    2) Create one more order with different order type and settle to parent order

    3) Triger point rework order .

    Check which one is best suited .

      Dear Mr. Gibson and Mr. Rath,

      Thank for the input,

      I used the new order and settle to the parent order,

      with the help of my Costing friend, it works well.

    Case1: Since the operation glazing is already done and cost has also been captured, time has been confimed u have to insert one more operation with the same setting as glazing. Name the operation as glazing2, maintain WC, operation time etc every thing like the 1st glazing operation.

    Similarly for other repeated operation. In this way u will have all informations in the prod order which u can use later for reporting purpose. U can use separete control key for identification as which are the planned and which are repeated.

    I think this is the best simple way u can adopt.

    People also use trigger points, but I am not convinced to use that.
