Production Order Split

I am exploring the functionality in LOG_PP_PROD_ORD_SPLIT in our sandbox region. We are currently at EHP 4, thus rendering OSS note 170819 not relevant. I have activated LOG_PP_PROD_ORD_SPLIT via SFW5. I am trying to split a production order for a MTO end item that is NOT batch managed. Also, since we have ECC 6.0 EHP 4 the requirement of a product cost collector is no longer there.

I select the operation in the parent order that I want the split to occur and always get a message "Missing by-product/missing batch for cost transfer material". I tried creating a by-product that is batch managed. When I add that material in the by-product field in the material for cost transfer, I get the message "No batch numbers could be determined". So now I enter a batch number and get the message "Material uses internal batch number assignment (Entry will be deleted)". I have also tried to add an existing batch with no inventory that I manually created and get the Batch number already exists message.

I have not activated the business function LOG_PP_WIP_BATCH, as I do not wish to use WIP batches.

Questions:

How do I get around the fact that our MTO end items are NOT batch mangaged? Do I use a generic by-product as the material for cost transfer? If so, how do I get past the need to add a batch number or get the system to accept the internally assigned number as outlined above? It is not an option to batch manage the end item.

What is the purpose/reason for needing this material for cost transfer to be batch managed?

Thanks for any help you may be able to provide.

    Hi,

    Assume you have to do 5 operations to get the product

    creating the production order .

    confirm the first two operations using Co11N

    now open the production order in the change mode using Co02

    In production order operation overview, select the operation 0030 and go to functions menu and click on split order.

    System will display a screen with all parameters for order split.

    enter split quantity and order type(you can select different order type for child order)

    Click execute Split Order

    operation quantity for the current order will be reduced based on the split quantity

    Balance quantity would be assigned to the new production order created because of order split .

    Regards,

    Raj

      Thank you for your reply.

      To make it easier, I just created a new material (for the by-product) not flagged as batch managed. I then entered that material number in the by-product field. The message I receive is CO351 Material xxxxxx is not handled in batches.

      Frustratingly, I leave that material number in there and just put in a batch number for fun. I get the same message. I receive CO351 Material xxxxxx yyyy is not handled in batches. The xxxxxx is the new NON-BATCH MANAGED material I just created and the yyyy is a batch number that I put in the batches.

      So, then I tried to pull out the by-product material number....and I get the message COOS072 Missing by-product/missing batch for cost transfer material.

      This tells me that the either SAPs code has a bug in it and there is an OSS note I must apply to fix it....or a batch managed material is required in the by-product field in the Material for Cost Transfer box of the order split.

      Any suggestions???

      Thanks in advance for your help.

    Dear

    Production Order could be split due to following reasons:

    1. When partial lot of order is to be handled from the rest due to quality reasons.

    2. If capacity bottle necks exists.

    3. Material is committed for part of order qty.

    Please Find the Link u can Do it

      The main issue I have with this was getting around the fact that the by-product has to be batch managed. I have not found a way around that. The problem with the batch numbering I was having has been resolved by changing the Automatic Batch Number Assignment in configuration from Active to Inactive.

      I believe this is an issue/bug with SAP LOG_PP_PROD_SPLIT in that it does not handle internally assigned batch numbers at all.

      Thanks for all the suggestions.

    We have Order Based costing and not using PCC and ML

    Say I have created order for qty 100 after two or three operations we can find few pieces are inferior quality so I would like to split the order, when i split the order by qty 90 and qty 10, the parent order is calculating the Mtrl cost + operational cost but child card is only showing Mtrl cost from material master

    The Cost suppose to be Rs 1000 for Qty 100

    Desired output Parent order – Rs 900 (for 90Qty)

    Child order – Rs 100 (for 10Qty)

    But I am not getting the cost proportionately for Parent and child order, by product picking the cost/rate from material master.

    Please help me it’s very urgent and crucial.
