How to Convert Planned Orders into Production Orders collectively?

Dear All,

I am aware of CO40 and CO41 transactions for conversion of planned orders to production orders.

But in my scenario, I am using strategy 40 and when I have created sales order of FG and run MRP then planned orders are created for FG as
well as below level SFG's which are around 15 to 20 planned orders.

This I am discussing for 1 FG material but when I am planning 50 FG materials then in such case for among 50 FG’s, I want to convert one
specific FG and its SFG's planned orders into production orders collectively so as to save my time.

Right now, I am unable to track all planned orders of SFG's under specific FG (because of strategy 40), How can I achieve this?

Thanks,

Naresh

    Hii Naresh,

    You can use Mass processing ( transaction COHV ) , here you can do at header as well as component level.

    Hi Naresh,

    This is an interesting question. Thanks.

    But, wondering if you have any specific business requirement to take this approach.

    Do you use completely different set of components for each of your FGs?

    Aren't there any components or SFG shared across multiple FGs?

    In the normal process, we would be interested in converting the set of ALL Planned orders with the schedule date in the next (XX) number of days, irrespective of the relationships to the FG!

    System takes care of the relationship building automatically.

    For example,

    If we have 100FG(Lead time = 2days) X 10SFG1(leadtime = 5days) X 10SFG2 (leadtime=5days)...

    If we have requirement for all these 100FGs on 15Feb2012,... And assuming we work all 7 days a week,...

    we will have:

    100X1 = 100 FG planned orders scheduled for completion on 15Feb2012 (Start = 14Feb)

    --> 100X10 =1000 SFG1 planned orders scheduled for completion on 13Feb2012 (Start = 9Feb)

    -->1000X10 = 10000SFG2 planned orders scheduled for completion on 8Feb2012.(Start =4Feb)

    Please recall that, if we use Ind/Coll indicator 2 (Collective) and suitable lot sizing (Daily/Weekly/...), the requirements for the SFG1/SFG2 could be combined and the number of planned orders could significantly drop.

    Anyways, we just need to make sure that all these 10000SFG2 planned orders are converted into Production order in time for starting Mfg on 4Feb,... we are on track to meet the SFG1 component requirements

    --> Same way, we need to ensure that ALL 1000 SFG1 orders are converted on time to start Mfg on 9Feb,... and All 100 FG orders on 14Feb.

    So, this way,... instead of converting the SFG/Comp requirements for each FG,... it would be advisable to ensure that the planned order/PR conversions are simply based on their schedules.

    So, with the above example, I would be comfortable setting up a batch job with PPBICO40 program, using a variant which says all planned orders with Planned opening dates within the next 5 or 6(or any suitable number) and simply convert them into Production orders.

    Regards,

    Senthil
