No GR and GI Posting After TECO

Posted by sapides on November 24, 2010 at 11:56 AM Comments comments (4)

How can we avoid the GR/ GI/ confirmation after the TECO or Ordersettlement?


After TECO, you can still post the GI or GR and Confirmations on theOrders.


This is a Standard feature of SAP.


To counter this, you can handle this with the following:


Create the user status and assign to the order type. In that you cancreate the user status TECO and forbid the CNF status. So if you activateyour user status TECO to your order it will stop the confirmation.




You can control this using transaction BS22,


Select status I0045 TECO Technically completed, double click on thisvalue and then select the radio button for 


RMPH Partially confirm order

RMPO Partially confirm operation

RMRP Incoming invoice

RMRU Confirm order

RMWA Goods Movement

RMWF Goods receipt for prodn. order

RMWI Inventory difference

RMWL Goods issue delivery

SDGI Post goods issue


and select Forbidden to Disallow the above functions, save it.


With this you can restrict GI/GR/Conf. for the Orders.


But these settings are at Client level, so please be careful.




Check with this user exit, CONFPP01.


This will help you to meet the requirement, with the help of your ABAPconsultant you can achieve this by activating this user Exit.


The system will throw an error message if you try to confirm an orderwhich has the TECO status. 


Process Order (COR1) Batch Management

Posted by sapides on November 24, 2010 at 11:55 AM Comments comments (0)



For a new plant while making Process Order (COR1), the batches arenot picked up automatically despite the stock being available.  Whatneed to be setup?

Make all these steps are done:

1) Spro--> Logistics - General-->Batch Management->Batch Determinationand Batch Check-->Access Sequences

2) Spro--> Logistics - General-->Batch Management->Batch Determinationand Batch Check-->Strategy Types-->Define Process Order Strategy Types

3) Spro--> Logistics - General-->Batch Management->Batch Determinationand Batch Check-->Define Process Order Condition Tables

4) Define process order search procedure --> oplg

5) Assign search procedure & activity check --> corc

6) Define the class like fg / rm pm etc --> clo2

7) Define sort rule like fefo / fafo depending up on requirement

8) Access the transaction cob1 attach sort rule & selection criteriafor all materials 

9) Check batch entry field in mrp 2 view


Batch no in process order   

How to do following setting :

1) Only manual allocation of Batch number under Good Receipt tabof process order should be done. i.e. No automatic batch number assignmentunder good receipt tab.

2) No release of order till batch number is manually assigned underGood receipt tab of process order.

First remove the automatic batch create from Production scheduling profilethrough OPKP or CORY.

Then Good Receipt Batch number mandatory through transaction variantSHD0

Or Use the Exit EXIT_SAPLCOBT_001 under enhancement PPCO0001 where-inbased on your requirement you can create batch for your order. You canuse CALL FUNCTION 'VB_CREATE_BATCH' to create the batchs as per your requirement.


Issue and Receipt Storage Location in Production

Posted by sapides on November 24, 2010 at 11:52 AM Comments comments (0)

1) How to know which is issue Storage Locationa and Recepit StorageLocation?

2) Suppose I have 10 operations, how do I know from which StorageLocation the Material Components are issued and at the end of last operationwhich is 10 to which Storage Location the finished product has to be send.

For Issue Storage Location are maintained in BOM Item or Material MasterMRP view 2.

For Receipt Storage Location are maintained in Material Master MRP View2.

In production, first there is a check as to whether an issue locationis entered in the BOM item. 



If there is an issue location in the BOM item, this issue locationis copied to the production order as a default value. Otherwise, the issuelocation is copied from the material master record.

Procedure For Printing The Production Order

Posted by sapides on November 24, 2010 at 11:51 AM Comments comments (3)

Check whether you have configured the print control for production orderproperly. Transaction OPK8.

In this check the following:

1) Of the lists you want to print are appearing in the Names of Lists.

2) In the spool parameters the prod order plant appears and on doubleclicking the line the relevant print lists are checked and the output listmentioned.

3) The correct print program is mentioned against each of the lists.

The production order can be printed in CO02 screen itself.(Ctrl+P).To define what to be printed, you need to identify/define the correct listin the transaction OPK8. Once the correct combination is selected for therequired plant and order type, this can be printed in production order.

But for the preview after printing, you can view the spools createdin SP01.

Or T code CO04N or CO04 is meant for printing production orders


Explain in details the setting for printing shop floor papers withheader and components with goods issue slip and confirmations slips.

In OPK8 :

Name of the list - LG01, LG03, LK02, LV02

Spool parameters - User and plant = *

Reference operation - type - *, ref order = your order type

Forms - 





Print prog -





List control for transaction

ref order type, plant, MRP controller-*

transaction codes - CO01, CO02, CO03, CO04, CO05, CO07

Flow control for transaction - all are online

Do this setting and then create Prod order/GI/Confirm and print


I have a problem printing production orders. When I give a print,its printing only 2 or 3 lines. What should I do to add some more informationto my production order and where can I view the print preview of my productionorder?

Serial Number For Component

Posted by sapides on November 24, 2010 at 11:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Serial Number For Component

I have a FG (A/C) which has a serial number. This A/c has a compressorin its BOM.

The client requirement is to link the compressor to A/c using serialnumber. So, I maintain serial number profile for the compressor also. But when I do mfbf (backflush) for the A/c, the system asks only for theserial no. profile only for the A/c & not for the compressor. How do I link the two?

You can assign componenets (with serial nos.) to assembly ( also withserial nos.) with COIB after goods receipt.( Menu path --Logistics -> Plantmaintenance -> Management of technical objects -> Installed base -> Create(special) -> With reference to production data.)

Example: Say assembly sr. no. is 1

And components serial no. are- 1,5,10,20 and so on.

After assignment of components it can be viewed on right part of screen,You can have the assignment history--- ie for which assembly no. whichcomponents are assigned or vice versa. In production order i.e in descretemfg. it can be directly done at the time of operation confirmation.

The following is the detail steps:

  1. T code--COIB

  2. Enter material code ( Assembly). You can select specificserial no. of assembly --- by putting sr. no. in serial no. field.

  3. Click on list tree- you will find all assembly with serialnumbers.

  4. Click on explode-- it will show the BOM ( in bottom leftcorner of screen)

  5. Select the assembly numbers for which you want to assignthe componets

  6. Clik on tranfer

  7. Select the component 

  8. Also select the assembly no. on right side screen.

  9. Select the serial no. which you want to assign to an assembly

10. Click on assign

11. You will find all the components will get assigned to assemblywith serial numbers.

12. Now on right side screen there is "save" button. ( It will askyou create/ change as built in foreground or background?

13. Select as foreground

14. Save

15. You will find a message at the borttom --- saved.

16. Now you will find tick mark ( in front of assembly material) inright part of screen ( indication of assignment of components)


Rework Thru Trigger Point

How to map the scenario for Production order confirmation, Reworkorder create automatic with help of trigger points?

First check in Tcode OPJF for the selection id a Priority is definedfor the Task list type S with usage 1 and status 4 and then Proceed asfollows:

1. Create a Reference op set in tcode Ca11.

Enter the plant,Description , usage and status for the ref op set Enterlotsize and unit of measure.

Enter the op as 0010 / workcenter/op control key/Description for theop Enter the standard values and save.

2. Create a Standard trigger point in CO31.(Ex Production)

Enter the Trigger Point usage /Group as FERT.

3. Tick the Trigger Point Functions.

4. Enable the indicator create order with Reference.

5. Enter the system status as PCNF.

6. Enter change as +.

7. Enable the indicator once.

8 . Now place the cursor on the create order with reference.

9. Goto Parameters.

10. In the Parameter enter in the group the created Reference op setgroup no.

11. Order type as PP01 and group counter as 1 and save the Trigger Point.

12. Now goto the Routing for your Material.

13. Choose the last op to assign the Trigger point.

14. Select the OP ----> Goto ---> Trigger Point overview.

15. Enter the Trigger Point usage as FERT.

16. Now choose that line ,select the Details---> Trigger Point 17. Thesystem will says standard trigger point exists from which you can selectthe created Trigger Point (EXx Production)and save.

18. MD02/MD04.

19. Convert the Planned Order into Production Order and Release theorder.

20. Now confirm th ops.

21. For the last op enter the yield and rework qty and set the statusas PCNF.

22. If the status of last op is PCNF then in the system a POP UP willappear as Activited by Trigger Point /Create order with reference/ordernumber/sequence and op number which trigger point works and enter.




SAP flow for REWORK activity Question:

Posted by sapides on November 24, 2010 at 11:49 AM Comments comments (0)

SAP flow for REWORK activity Question:

What is the SAP flow for REWORK activity in PP-PI.

Sample Scenerio:

1. Initial Process Order qty: 10pc

2. Confirmed QTY.: 9 PCS.

3. Rejection qty .: 1 pc.

4. Now that one pc. is to be reworked in operation no.0020.

How is it possible to understand later that, it is in this particularprocess order, so much of rework is carried out, and thats the reason theprocess cost has increased.

Rework during production depends on the client's decision. Like somecompanies want a separate process order to process this rejected quantityand some clients want to use the same process order, some even want toidentify this rejected by assigning a new batch number.

But in some company, they do rework rarely but not as frequently asyou do.

What they do is by inserting the new operation/phase after the actualoperation/phase, and the operation quantity/base

quantity, queue times, etc  will be according to the users decision.in u r example down 1 pc will be the operation/phase quantity.

and one more thing is that remember to PCNF the 9 pc if you want toidentify the 1 pc with the new batch.

With Compliments by: Sandeep

Additional comments::

You also need to remember the product costingaspect.

The primary costs of material should not be repeatedwhile doing the rework. so, the generally accepted trend is that you createa separate order type for it and a common recipe with a rework operationand the materials you can assign while creating the process order.

Doing it in the same process order will have aproblem of treacability of cost.


How Costing takes place in Production Orders

Posted by sapides on November 24, 2010 at 11:48 AM Comments comments (0)

How Costing takes place in Production Orders

Can anyone please explain me the how the Costingtakes place for the Production Orders.

Actually, I am new to this package , In OtherPackage (RAMCO ERP) 

(The Process is like follows: 

a. Production Work-Order Resource Cost Poststo Finance directly 

b. Material Consumption postings happens fromOSV(Order Settlement Variance) of MAC Module(Management Accounting).


Please somebody explain me as above in SAP.


The following are considered in costing,


1) cost of materials that you have issued fororder 

2) activity you have performed in terms of labourhours that you entered while confirming the order (the rates for the labourare defined in the activity planning tables of controlling module)..whichis generally associated with a formula key and attached to a workcenterthat is linked to a cost center also 


3) overhead as applicable with respect to thatcost center based on a predetermined cost center planning and its rate...
