SAP Best Practices Make-to-Stock Production .Two-level-production for subassembly and finished part  Use of production versions  Optional enhancement: Serial number for finish product  Optional enhancement: External processing  Optional enhancement: Batch management processing  References to different procurement scenarios for raw materials The product manufactured anonymously and delivered to the warehouse is a Finished Good MTS. As a result. The finished product can alternative be planned with the planning strategy 10 or 40. the planned independent requirements are exploded across the entire BOM structure. One of the most important features of this planning strategy is that it enables you to smooth the demand program.Sales Quantity Forecast with CO-PA (179) or Logistics Planning (144) scenario and start MTS processing with the second step: Material Requirements Planning (MRP) o start with creating Independent Requirements manually  proceed with the scenario with the first step Irrespective of the starting point you choose.  Planned Independent Requirements Processing After creating the planned independent requirements a forecast based on sales figures over a period of 12 months is available. You can use the forecast to plan the long-term requirements for the assemblies produced internally and the purchased parts. Planning strategy 10 is particularly useful in mass production environments. © SAP AG Page 6 of 61 .  Demand Management The process can be started with two different starting points: o start with SOP (Sales Operation Planning)  proceed with Scenario Quarterly Plan .  Planned independent requirements  Production triggered by a production plan  Make-to-stock production .Discrete Industry (145): BPD Make-to-Stock Production . or by existing stocks. Sales orders are covered by the production orders resulting from the forecast.Discrete Industry 1 Purpose The scenario Make-to-Stock Production focuses on:  Sales-order-independent production using MTS (Make-to-stock) production / production order processing. You should choose this strategy if you want production to be determined by a production plan (Demand Management) and if you do not want sales orders to influence production directly. the system also determines dependent requirements for purchased parts and raw materials. the result is independent requirements for your BOM header material. As part of material requirements planning using the net change method. The planned figures are divided into monthly values. Revolving planning on a monthly basis is used.

The selection of production versions is done automatically (selection of different routings depending on production order lot size) 2 Prerequisites 2. However. The smoothing of the master plan is less important. The warehouseman picks the production order in the parts warehouse. This includes data reflecting the organizational structure of your company. large quantities of this material are to be stored in the warehouse. This master data consists of standardized SAP Best Practices default values and enables you to go through the process steps of this scenario. and so on. When the planned opening date has been reached. With this strategy.

R124) are planned on a consumption basis. the system reserves all of the required components. these planned orders are converted to production orders by the production planner. which are also required. time ticket. The system uses planned orders to implement receipt elements. planned independent requirements are consumed by incoming sales orders so that the master plan is always adjusted to suit the current requirements situation.  Material Requirements Planning (MRP) The daily MRP run generates replenishment elements at each low-level code. The system also creates planned orders for parts that are produced internally.  Make-to-stock production The production planner releases the production orders created on the release date and simultaneously prints the shop floor papers (job ticket. as well as master data that suits its operational focus.1 Master Data and Organizational Data A range of indispensable master and organizational data was created in your ERP system in the implementation phase. This means that the important feature of this planning strategy is that you can react quickly to customers’ requirements. for example.Discrete Industry (145): BPD Planning strategy 40 is probably the most widely used strategy if you can forecast production quantities for the final products. As a result. Since these parts are required for a variety of other motors. Production orders with missing parts are not usually released by the production planner. customers. in exceptional cases. Replenishment orders are triggered as soon as a specified reorder point is reached. master data for materials. Some raw materials (for example. Production order processing for subassembly Semifinished Good (S124) and for Finished Good (F126) Production versions are used for different kind of routings. The system automatically generates purchase requisitions for purchased parts within the 3-month opening period for the planned order. the production planner can also send orders with missing parts to production. vendors.SAP Best Practices Make-to-Stock Production . and uses the pick list to book out the components managed in the temporary warehouse for each order. component list).

production order type is YBM1. You have to check the settlement rule determined. To do this,
from the menu choose (NWBC: More… ) Header  Settlement rule. You see that the
production order is settled to material Finished Good MTS (F126).

A production version determines the various production techniques that can be used
to produce materials. It can be defined by the following informations:
 Alternative BOM for a BOM explosion
 Task list type, task list group and group counter for assignment to task lists
 Lot-size restrictions and period of validity
The production versions of material Finished Good MTS (F126) are defined with one
BOM and two different routings. They were selected automatically by the order lot
