automatic conversion of planned orders

Hi PP Gurus,

I have a requirement to convert planned orders to production orders automatically. I believe SAP standard does not offer this functionality.

The possible solution seems to be writing new program which could be a copy of C041 transaction code.

Did someone ever worked on this functionality?

Request to share your experience and possibilities on this - Thanks

Regards

Seshu

    Seshu,

    Your understanding is incorrect. Use the standard SAP program PPBICO40, which can be run in batch. This program allows you to select planned orders and convert to production orders.

    Dear Seshu,

    In my understanding there is no T Code for making the conversion of planned order into a production order as an automatic

    process.

    But you can use the T code CO41 for converting a list of planned order's into production orders.

    In many cases the planned order is only a proposal and only after converting it into a production order and releasing it then the

    exact shop floor activities starts like Good's issue.This activity is done by a production scheduler.So in case if you develop a

    program to convert automatically,then reservation gets generated for all the production orders, which is not recommended.

    Also check this link,

    Check and revert back.

    Hi

    Yes in my last project the conversion of planned order into production orders and subsequent confirmations were happening automatically using batch job running in the backgroud. Consult your tech people to develop the program and make it as batch job
