don’t be surprised if you found that the Original Routing and BOM structure to be difference with the one in the Production Order as users have the right to change it. The Purchase Requisitions are generated for non-stock items and externally processed operations. if necessary.sap-img. the system will perform the following actions: Select the Routing that contains the operations and sequences and copy it to the Production Order. the Production Planner (after finding out from the Production staff) will define the raw materials. The planned costs for the Production Order are generated. The Master data for the Routing and BOM will only be copy once during the Production Order creation UNLESS you click the Re-COPY functions (CO02 – Functions – Read PP Master Data). The Planned Orders will be reviews by the Production Planner who will decide whether to convert the Planned Orders into Production Orders and then RELEASE it for actual Production. how much work is required and the work sequence that need to be carried out (Routing). The Capacity requirements are generated for the work centers define in the Routing.A Step-by-Step Guide to the SAP PP Shop Floor Control Configurations An Overview of the SAP Production Orders As the name implies. Reservations are created for those Bill of Materials Item held in stock. Therefore. Which Machine or Labour capacity to used to process the Order. Using an assembly order. How much will it cost to produce the Finished Goods? In the SAP system. at which location. In the Production Orders. The Bill of Materials is exploded and the items in the BOM are transferred to the Production Order. A firm SAP Production Order will contains information such as: What is to be produced. Creating it manually from the SAP system. semi-finished materials required to be processed (Bills of Materials).com Page 6 of 79 SAP Version 4. a Production Orders can be created in the following methods: Convert from the Planned Orders generated by the SAP MRP system. Production Orders is a work processes that a company uses to produced the Finished Goods that the Customer Need. It also defines which resources are to be used and how the costs are to be settled. @ www. Once a Production Order is created. Any further changes done to the Production Order for the Routing and BOM etc. at what time. When the Actual Production will take place. will ONLY affect the Production Order and vice versa.6c . The Materials Requirement Planning will generate a Planned Orders from the Customer Sales Orders or a Company-Internal Requirement (known as Planned Independent Requirement for Orders that are not firmed).

A Step-by-Step Guide to the SAP PP Shop Floor Control Configurations The Bills of Materials in relation to the Shop Floor Production Order As you know. you create the BOM level by level with Tcode “CS01”. you define the BOM level by level. This BOM will be copied into the Production Order whenever a new Order is created. As you can see after you enter the screen. In SAP. The system can cater for different type of BOM (referring to the different modules of SAP).com Page 7 of 79 SAP Version 4.sap-img.6c . @ www. a bill of material is a complete structure list of the components (or raw material/semi-finished) that make up a product (Finished Good). For production you’ll choose BOM usage 1.

Click the button Start the Material BOM Browser. let us look at a simple example: FERT requires the raw materials RAW 1 and semi-finished goods SEMI. two different Production Order will be created. Now. One for FERT. @ www. when a user create a Production Order for FERT. you’ll define two single BOM with Tcode CS01. FERT RAW 1 SEMI RAW 1 RAW 2 You can used Tcode CSMB to view the Multi-level BOM. SEMI requires the raw materials RAW 1 and RAW 2.A Step-by-Step Guide to the SAP PP Shop Floor Control Configurations Now.sap-img.com Page 8 of 79 SAP Version 4. The SAP system automatically LINK the Multi-level BOM structure for you. The reason is because FERT and SEMI requires different manufacturing process to be completed. The system will quickly find the BOM relationship automatically for you. and the other for SEMI. Therefore.6c .

An order type contains control information that you need for managing orders. Therefore. All these configurations will be copied to the Production Order in transaction code “CO01” when the user create the production order. a PP consultant will have to work closely with the CO consultant and try your best to learn how Cost is being calculated for the Production Order. You have to assign every Production Order to an order type. copy it from the Standard Order Type “PP01”.g.A Step-by-Step Guide to the SAP PP Shop Floor Control Configurations Start of the SAP Production Order Configurations The SAP PP modules is closely related to the Controlling modules which takes care of the Costing for the Production Order. For e. you need to find out from your FICO consultant which Settlement Profile (under the Cost Controlling section) are you using although most of the time the default standard SAP profile PP01 is used.

Order residence time Find out from the user how long completed orders are left in the SAP System before they are archived. Reorganizing (writing the object to a sequential dataset and physically deleting it from the system) Residence time 1 determines the time interval (in calendar months) that must elapse between setting the delete flag (step 1) and setting the deletion indicator (step 2). you can still archive the Production Order using the Archive Management transaction SARA – Object Name .
