How to use operation or order quantity in routing procedure?

We have bom material for programming operation for the manufacturing part and our programming material is child of the part bom. When we calculate the labor time, it will multiply with order quantity. We have to avoid ,because one program is good to produce the full order quantity .Either we can set operation qty always 1 or we can divide the programming hours by order quantity to achieve our target ( order qty will vary for every order).For that I would like to know how to use the Order quantity value in my routing dependency procedure ( labor time calculation ). Please help me if you have same experience to resolve the issue.

    Hi Sathish,

    As per my understanding you can create a bill of material with fixed qty so that it never get multiply on your production order qty.

    • Thanks Prasath , we have checked this option on our BOM setting on the parent material assignment , but for some order , the BOM assignment is deleted our programming operation material from the part BOM . If we added this programming operation manually and forgot to check this fixed qty option then the programming labor hours gets multiply with operation qty at work center scheduling.

      When we do the routing for this part , the labor time formula key on the work center is SAP003 = labor time * operation qty/base qty/operation splits. Hope we can create new formula to avoid the operation qty in the labor time calculation ( programming hours actually).Is it feasible to create and assign new formula key for the work center?
