Queries related to Production orders

Hello PP Gurus,

1. I have an issue where some one has deleted the component materials in a production order. This I have identified since the deleted indicator has been ticked. So let me know how can I determine the person who has deleted the component materials in production order? Is there a change log anywhere that I can review?

2.I have also observed that in some cases where users have done confirmation with out performing GI (261 movement type).Is it possible in a std sap?Component materials are not backflushed fyi .

Requesting the forum ppl to clarify my about quires with your detailed explanation.

    SAP does not log changes made to production orders (other than statuses) as it would hog system performace (note : 390635)

    Excerpt from Note:

    It is not intended to use the SAP standard tool for the creation of change documents for production or process orders in the SAP standard system. The indicator in table T399X is only interpreted by maintenance orders and networks.

    The reason for this is that the tool cannot determine dependencies of changes and thus would log too many changes that would have a negative effect on the runtime.

    Example: A production order contains 10 operations and 1000 components

    Case 1: You change the requirements quantity for a component manually.

    The system creates a change document for the changed component.

    Case 2: You change the planned quantity in the order header manually.

    The change causes that the quantites are changed automatically for all operations and components. The system would create

    a change document for the changed header quantity,

    ten change documents for the automatically changed operation quantities (if defined) and

    thousand change documents for automatically changed component quantities.

    For question number 2 I don't think there is any standard setting if you're not backflushing, you might have to implement a user exit.

    Hi Kumar,

    Regarding the second issue you mentioned, it is possible to restrict the users from doing confirmation without goods issue. For this you have to do the following setting in Order confirmation parameters

    OPK4 -> select the order type used -> (2nd tab)Individual entry general -> In eror handling select the check box 'Terminate for incorrect goods movements'.

    Hope this helps you.

    1. It is not possible to get the change log. It is possibe if Order change Mnaagement is implemented.or the Note Number mentioned is implemented.

    2. In standard SAP there is no restriction for having goods issue mandatory before confirmation.I.e. You can confirm the goods operations or do goods receipt before doing Goods issue.

    For this you can use this Exit.
