Moisture content not known during GR of Process order (WMT / DMT )

Hi All,

In Production scenario of Metallurgical coke the coal is passed through ovens to get the coke.

The Coke valuation is done on DMT (Dry Metric tonne) basis. The Coke is weighed on the weighbridge in WMT ( wet metric

tonne ). Now as valuation is in DMT i need to post the data in DMT only.

The Moisture content is known after one day. So i need to know how to post the WMT at weighbridge in the system.

Should i create a Z table to store the weighment in WMT & then after getting the Moisture from QA to post in the System.

or any option like 103 movement is there for Process order GR.

Thanks & Regards,

    Do you need to carry out the GR of coke before having the quality results ? Because you have an alternative:

    - Inspection type 04 for Coke, with early lot creation "Y" in material master

    - Inspecion lot is created at order release

    - Quality posts theur moisture content result.

    - You make the GR and confirmations....

    Or.... you can use material quantiy calculation , where the quantity of product is related to the characteristic "Moisture" of the sample. Then, automatically you can have as Operation quantity the weighed coke, and the the system will propose the Dry quantity, once quality has posted the moisture result (Batch is required)

    I feel You don't have QM Module., If QM module is implemented do as per Mr Dario,

    If your client have Weighing conveyor , then you came to know thew weight early and also Moisture content.

    what is the use of Z table here, any way you are going to valuate the stock after QA confirms the moisture content. You can directly post the stock After one day, Because, In Coke moisture content is not fixed, Each hour The coke moisture content will vary, AT the time of production will be different, at the weighment the moisture content will be different & at the time of Issue to MBF, the moisture content will be different.

    IF YOU use Z table, What would be the use, any way the stock valuation is after QA approval only. IF You post as non valuated, then Any way You can't use for other posting, the Quantity is only for display purpose, there IS no use of it( the data with moisture content is also not a correct one) This is the major pain Point in Steel Industry. Revert Me if you have any queries.

    You can do this with batch specific unit of measurment and active ingredient management.

    Use the active ingredient management.

    You can find examples of the material quantity calculation in combination with the active ingredient management in the SAP Library under the following path:

    Logistics -> Production Planning and Control -> Production Planning for Process Industries -> Master Recipe -> Master Recipe Processing -> Material Data Processing -> Material Quantity Calculation -> Material Quantity Calculation with Batch Data

    You can find information on the active ingredient management under: Logistics -> Batch Management -> Batch-specific Units of Measure -> Data Maintenance for Batch-specific Units of Measure
