MTO Scenario

Dear All,

I have one scenario. Finished material requirement totally depends on sales order. As sales order comes, design of the machine starts and design dept prepere BOMs for that specific sales order. Only 2% semifinished material is used in next sales orders. In this case in standard SAP,we have to create new material codes for each semifinished materials.

Is there any alternative to prevent creation of new material codes? It will reduce users efforts in creating every time new material codes and system load also.

    Hi Mayur,

    As your product is changing every time so you don't have any other option than to create a new material ..... Regarding the load to the DB what you can only do is archive the materials , BOM & routing for the product which the business are most probably not going to mfg in near future ...

      HI,

      if you have alot of product but still can be group into variant, some will use VC (Variant Configuration),

      but if you don;t use VC then you have to create a lot of new material.

      I hope it's help.

      bets regards,

    Hi Mayur,

    If Design is changed then Material No. should also change other wise how will you track the history when it really required.

    Check it with Variant Configuration if it suites to you requirement.
