Planning (SAP PP): Repetitive Manufacturing


Profile -REM Profile Asssistant

Posted by Anupam Sharma Aug 3, 2013


Dear All,

We can create REM profile using REM profile assistant in through Transaction code OSPT which can help us
in order to incorporate the various functionalities which are being controlled through REM profile in Repetitive
manufacturing.
Go to T code-

We can create the REM profile for MTS scenario or MTO and select any of the existing standard profile as
baseline or template for REM profile creation ,the entry for template is optional. And click on next

The profile assistant will ask for different scenarios and for different business requirement and also we can
get more information related to fields on

every screen by clicking the recommendations and meanings .

Following are the Business process requirement or question catalogue which appear during the creation of
REM profile.

1.Reporting point-if requirement is to work with RP-REM-select one of the radio button .We use the reporting
point procedure, If we back flush

manufactured quantities to reporting points. Reporting points are flagged as milestones in the routing. If we
use mandatory reporting points, then we must back flush at every reporting point. If we use optional reporting
points, we can carry out the normal final

back flush, using reporting point back flush only in certain scenario.

Click on next.

2 . Activity posting :while doing back flushing for material whether the system posts production activities or
separate activity posting . If we instruct the system to post production activities, it calculates these activities on
the basis of the cost estimate and posts them to the cost collector, after creating REM profile we can change
it to whether activity confirmation is to be done on the basis of standard cost estimate or preliminary cost
estimate.

3.Separate back flushing: It is only possible to separate the back flushing processes with make-to-stock
production and valuated sales order stock.
We have three options:
1. Separate posting of goods issue and activities from goods receipt We only back flush the goods receipt.
Goods issues and activities are posted later.
2. Goods issues and activities are also aggregated and collectively posted.
3. The postings are also distributed over several servers.

4.GR and GI: Normally, the back flush encompasses goods receipt and goods issue. If we choose "only post
GR", we can post the goods issues for the components collectively, using the goods issue transaction in
repetitive manufacturing. If we want to select"Post GR only" here, check first whether it would make sense to
use the separated back flush function. If we do not use the separated back flush function here and we choose
"Post GR only", manually separate the goods receipt and goods issue postings.

5.Firming of planned orders: Here, we define the firming logic for the planned orders whether planned orders
are firmed in Planning table in MF50 or not.

6 Stock determinations: we can use Stock determination in which we build an order of preference for the
usage of available stocks, for example, by price and quantity.Stock determination is defined by:

1. Stock determination rule in the repetitive manufacturing profile


2. Stock determination group in the material master record.

The combination of plant, stock determination rule and stock determination group defines stock determination.

7.Batch determination: Here, we can assign batch search procedure for back flushing in REM If materials are
to be handled in batches, but we have entered no batch search procedure, the system uses the general batch
search procedure.

8. Reducing the planned order/Run schedule qty. Here we define how the planned order/RS quantities are
reduced at back flush:

1. The system makes no reductions.


2. The system reduces all the planned orders or run schedule headers, which are assigned to the given
production version.
3. The system reduces all the planned orders or run schedule headers which are assigned to the given
production version, and are assigned to no production version.
4. The system reduces all the planned orders or run schedule headers which are assigned to the given
production version and assigned to no production version, and are assigned to other production
versions for the material.

9. Reduction period: Here we define the no of days which system takes into consideration while reducing the
Planned order/RS Quantities.

10.Planned order creation on reversal: Here, we define how the system recreates the reduced planned orders
when a back flush

is reversed, Whether system creates planned orders to cover the goods receipt Quantity reversed on that day
or system creates planned orders via an

asynchronous MRP run (single-segment planning, single-level), which it execute automatically after reversal.
The quantities in the planned orders are determined on the basis of the current requirements situation the
system creates no planned orders.

11.Error correction: Here we define the error handling of incorrect Goods movement occur during back flushing
which are later on will be cleared through MF47. We have the following correction options:

1. No online correction: in this case, we must maintain the point "Reprocessing records" so that the system
creates reprocessing
records (next screen). The system then creates reprocessing records for incorrect withdrawals.
2. Online correction mandatory: the system only allows back flush after the errors have been corrected.
3. Online correction optional: The system displays a dialog box in which we can decide whether to correct
the error or not. Please note: if, in the dialog box, we decide not to correct the error,the system will
only create reprocessing records if we have correspondingly maintained the point "Reprocessing
records" (next screen).

12.Reprocessing of Incorrect Goods movements :Here we define whether or not the System is to log
reprocessing records for BOM components with errors in back flushing. If we want the System to log
reprocessing errors, we must also decide whether the System is only to create cumulated records or whether
we also require individual reprocessing records.

13.Movement types: Here we define which movement types are used in REM (back flushing GR and GI) It is
recommended that we should use the standard movement types but we want to use enter own movement
types here, we must have defined them completely already in OMJJ.

When you configure the Control key assigned to your operation in Rate Routing with Milestone confirmation
same as in a way as in Discrete industry, then while creating the PCC the same operation is considered as
Reporting point in REM.

Thanks for your appreciation.
