Serial Number Procedures


I am wanting to make a copy of PPAU serial procedure in order to make modifications to the procedure to cover requirements for rework orders. Our PP orders we want to keep as the serial number Obilgatory and our PP Rework Orders the serial number will be optional. They are two different order types. I need to accomplish this without customization. Is there a way to copy serial procedure PPAU and tie it to the REWORK production order? Guidance is appreciated

    You cannot control this by customization. You may use user exit IQSM0004 and develop a program to check if serial numbers entered in production order are not already created (EQUNR must not be inital in the exit) and if the statuses of serial numbers are suitable for puting them into rework (check if they are available).

      Hi Kim,

      Do you create rework order with material or w/omaterial..?

      My suggestion would be to create rework order w/o materail and use your finishe dproduct as a compoenent in the same production order.

      While issuing the goods to this prod order you can assign already existing serial number.

    Dear Sir, For making the serial no obligatory you have to put serial no profile in worksechduiling views.In case of rework, you could used the mannual serial no ,. Create the serial no by using the transaction IQ01, assign this serial no in the production order, got to Header, and then serial no ,and assign this no. and the same is being visible in IQ09.

    Hope so this will resolved yours issues

      Thanks for replying it is much appreciated. I am not sure I understand your suggestion. Will you please give a little more detail?

      I am giving you my scenario

      We have a finished product that is MTS. The serial number profile on this material number is ZAFX. The serial number profile is set to automatic for the production orders. This is how the business wants this. The problem is we do not want this to happen for the rework order as the serial number is already assigned. We need to be able to use the serial number that was assigned previously for these and not try to re-create the serial number again...Obvious reasons this would lose History. I am trying to figure out how to copy a serial number procedure and tie it to the rework production order...any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    System automatically assigns the serial numbers due to the serial number profile assigned to the materials. By transaction OIS2 you configure the serial number profiles. If you make it mandatory to choose serial numbers when saving or releasing the production order, user will have the choice to assign existing serial numbers or make new creations.
