Backflushing: How to avoid it in REM

hi all,

what would be in your opinions the best way to avoid backflushing of components in BOM ?

we are in REM environment.

the reason for this is that they keep good track of the real consumption and that the real consumption fluctuates alot.

One way to do it is to deactivate the 'production relevant' checkbox in the BOM-position item. downside is that then no dependent requirements are transferred to components of this item...

sugestions welcome as allways. thanks

    Dear Paul,

    While backflushing either you have to click on post with correction and remove the items and then post it.

    The other way is what you have mentioned,in my understanding there is no other means of achieving this.

    For your understanding check this link,

    Hi

    If you avoid doing backflushing in REM then entire concept of REM is disturbed and REM has no meaning. If you dont what to backflush re-map your scenario in discrete manufacturing.

    But as you mentioned, there are lot of variations in consumptions of materials, it is strongly recommended to continue with REM

    Dear Paul,

    As Mangalraj said is right in case of REM, you can avoid to post backflush of components in MFBF with post with correction option where you can delete component / change quantity options. That is the best option.

    One more thing you can do is to avoid transfer of dependent requirement of parent material to child parts you maintaing following setting for parent material :

    Go to MM02 for Parent material -> MRP-4 View -


    >BOM Explosion / dependent requirements-> MRP dep. requirements

    Maintain above field as

    1 Materials for dependent requirements are not planned

    So the dependent requirements will be not be transferred for the child parts.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    thanks for the replies. it confirms what i thougt.

    it are just some components that should not be backflushed, besides it really is a REM environment.

    so i am afraid there is no other way than via the BOM-position. thanks for confirming
