Co and by-products

Hello everyone!

I created BOM for material A with two components:

  • MAT B, type - normal
  • MAT C, type - Co-product

and a routing with one operation - assembling.

Then I created and released one SFC for material A.

At my operation I registered one component through "Assembling point"

How can I register my co-product to be produced?

Regards,

Pavel

    You can define a component as co- or by-product in the SAP ME BOM but there is no functionality behind these attributes as yet.

    • Yep, just checked BOM component type (I was thinking of material types) - these are new types in 6.0. Personally I haven't used them yet and as Stuart commented - probably something is planned for these new types in future releases.

    Hello Pavel,

    Are you implementing SAP Manufacturing Execution system? If no - you better find a forum that addresses the issues of the product in question.

    From the description it doesn't seem so as there are no Normal and Co-product material types in ME. Though Assembly point and SFC are ME terms 😊.

    Hii Pavel,

    You can create a material as a co product in material master only . it is in MRP2 tab procurement title.

    OIr assign the material as a co-product in the BOM itshelf.

    Assign as a cmponet to the main FG.

    When a production order created for FG, a specific propertion of quantity of co-product material can be also be generated. no need of extra production order

    example:

    you have created production order of 2 for for your FG ( MATA).  and some quanity  maintined for co - product (matc )then at same time in MD04 screen of mat C, a prodcution order has been created and calculated based on BOM quaniity

    Regards
