Return FG material bom to get update automatically

Dear All,

This is my requirement how to address this one.

I am making one FG eg Bumper (Used in Car Industry) suppose i am delivering 100 nos of FG to customers and afterwards from 100 piece 10 nos return to me by customer for dameged or any other reason.

For Making FG Bumper Material i am using 10 bill of Materials ( assemble), suppose if any FG returns to me from 10 BOMs i can reuse atleast 5 raw / Engg materials for future order and left out 5 bom only goes to scrap. Now user requirement is when ever this FG returns from customer the RM/Engg Material stock to be increase automatically.

Now we are going to Implement SAP, how to address this scenerio.

If material returns it comes like FG Material code only. From same FG code only it will return from customer.

But as per user requirment how to map, kindly give your suggestions.

    Dear Sakthivel,


    1) For the returned FG, create production order in CO01

    2) Include same FG as an BOM component in production order and BOM components which you want to

    Re-use just mainatin them in -ve quantity

    3) Now delete rest all other components in BOM over view mainatin backflush indicator and Auto GR indicator in

    Production order

    4 ) confirm the order in CO11N or CO15

    5) the components which are mainatined in -ve quantity can be received via 531 movement type as by-products

    As FG is also mainatined as component so price for header Fg and ( same ) component FG should get net off

    Check with CO person on costing side for this scenario

    Dear shakthivel,

    for this scenario, U can map like this

    BOM for finish material

    for 1 ea of Z


    a -2



    and normal production is carried out for existing process

    For FG return

    once the material is returned to ware house

    Create a production order for b for qty 3

    and maintain component as

    Z - 1

    a - 2-

    c - 2-

    maiintain a component overview like that and set auto GI and GR

    once u confirm the order in c015

    b will come in 101 movemnet

    Z will consume in 261 movement

    a & c generated as 531 movement

    Costing wise, it won;t be any problem

    plese refer thisn thread for more information

    Dear sakthivel,

    Check whether this can help you,

    1.Once the customer returns coes to the plant,activate inspection type 06 ,so that the stock goes to quality stock and from here

    move it to a separate storage location meant for rework(check whether this can be blocked or unrestricted) and scrap the

    remaining quantity ,assume the QA person has confirmed only 5 can be reworked and 5 should be scrapped.

    2.Create a production order without material using CO07,with a separate order type and assign the cost center as the

    settlement reciever and issue the 5 quantity of return material for FG to this order from the separate storage location.

    3.Which means mention the FG in the component overview ,mention the quantity as 5,and add the BOM component of this FG

    in negative quantity ,release the order,confirm it in CO11N.
