Personal ID on Production Order Confirmations

Hi everybody,

Please advise on this scenario. We have 10 work centers in the shop floor. We setup 4 data collection stations (computers) to perform confirmations on production orders... we have around 100 technicians available to work on the production orders, which have average of 10 operations... We setup specific sap user ids for each data collection station, but we want to know how perform the confirmation, SAP records the confirmation under the generic user id of the data collection station as the creator of the confirmation but we want to know who performed/reported it... is there an easy way to assign/use a personal id for each user without creation new SAP accounts for each technician and/or activating HR module?... A personal ID number is available on the confirmation screen but we donu2019t know how to configure it... please your advices will be appreciated...

Regards,

Alfonso Gilson

    Hi,

    Can you please clarify what is data collection station? Have you developed a custom solution? If yes, what ME interfaces are you using?

    Thanks,

    Bakhtiyar

      Thanks Bakhtiyar for looking into my question...

      I found this forum is more for Manufacturing Execution using external systems... I think. Interface with system like MES, am I orrect?. In our current solution we are not using any external system or application. We setup in the shop floor 4 work stations (computers) where the technicians perform the confirmations. We customized a tcode to combine CO11N and IW41 in one screen, in the backgroup the program identify which tcode to use nase on the order type. In this way users donu2019t need to know which transition they need to use/execute for confirmations. The users login in this machines using a specific SAP user id/password, and this is the user id that is saved in the confirmations as creator. Now, we want to know who was the technician that performs each operation. As I mentioned we have around 100 technicians in the shop floor and they donu2019t have an user id/password setup, it will be too hard to maintain... We call these stations "Data Collection" because they scan the order and/or ticket numbers as a first step to perform the confirmations, then they enter the time and save it... simple...! But we want to track each person.... I was looking into the personnel id number, but looks a configuration in HR is required... we need an easy flag that later we can display on reports... I hope i provided more details...

      Assigning a specific SAP user id to each technician is not practical... Iu2019m wondering how you guys deal with these scenario in the pass. Customized a table to track the notes / texts on the confirmations? I hope this is not the case...!!!! Thanks for any input on this question...

    I found the answer... If any of you deal with this issue, use the wage group. No need for for the HR module to creare the personel id number. Also, this field will be available in COOIS for reports...
