increase finish product weigth

Hi Friends

My clint is a textile industry having texturising mc.finish product is PTY in kg.for that Bom components are POY in kg and oil 3% in L and oil consumption is keep on changing for each poduction order.

Example if i produce 100kg PTY, i give components 97% poy in kgs and 3% oil in litter.How to map this in sap?

    I am not getting your point

    You have a BOM structure

    Header material PTY

    Items 1 POY .97 kg

    items 2 Oil .03 lts

    When you create a production order system will copy the BOM and gives you the following components as per the header material qty

    Header material PTY 100 qty

    Items 1 POY 97 kg

    items 2 Oil .3 lts.

    Where is the problem?

    If the oil consumption varies in each production order, what is the basis of consumption? Is it depends on PTY quality/grade to be produced?

    If so that you can go for alternative BOM and select the alternative BOM during production order creation by config setting.

    If that is not the case, then the difference in planned and actual oil consumption will hit variance cost centre.

    pl come back what you are actually looking for?

    You mean to say Finish Product is used in BOM itself. Correct?

    This kind of Process can be implemented by use of Recursive BOM.

    Refer Below link for help,

    You can define the alterantive bom for polyester texture yarn as per the consumption of finish oil you required in that. Or try to define base unit of measurment according to the polyester yarn consumption.

    Hope it will solve your problem.

    • Dear,

      Define in terms of BOM item qty and base qty.

      As I know according to the OPU% weight of the finish yarn get increases right,

      So best way you need to define alternative bom for your polyester yarn and oil consumption during texturing. You can not define interm of % hope clear to you.
