    This is a grey area where no standard solution is available... I was able to develop couple of Z solutions, which evolved over a period of time...

    The solution depends on

    a. Complexity - No of products that can be made out of each mould/ dye

    b. Scenario - Discrete or Rep

    I will take the most easier one here i.e. 1 Product per mould & rep scenario... Any complexity more than this will be a variant of this approach

    1. Create each Mould/Dye as an Asset

    2. Create User defined fields in Asset Master using exit AIST00* part of Table ANLU to capture the Material you would be manufacturing from the mould, Mould life in terms of no of pieces, etc

    3. Assign your PCC in the "Order" in the asset master to post the dep to it... Or assign an Internal order and later settle the IO to PCC... if your wish is to post dep based on no of pieces manufactured, then you need to use a Dep Key based on "Units of Production" method.. You will have to create one Dep Key per asset in this case...

    The useful life of the mould will be maintained against dep key and actual qty produced needs to be taken from MB51 and updated against the dep key each month end.. Then run AFAB...

    In case you make multiple materials from one moould, maintain all the materials in asset master... Create a WBS and post dep to it.. Create child WBS elements under this WBS, one for each product made out of the mould and allocate dep from header to child at month end... Later on, settle the WBS to PCC

    In case you are in discrete scenario, you dont have much of choice.., Its practically not possible to allocate to each prod order... You will have to treat it as an overhead only
