Bills of Material

Bills of Material
Simple BOM Variant BOM Multiple BOM

Simple BOM representing single material

Similar materials represented by variants on one BOM

BOM representing a material which can be made up of multiple compositions e.g. different components and quantities

Bill of Material Validity

Area of Validity – The same Bill of Material can be allocated to several plants. Before you can allocate the BOM to a different plant, the material must exist at the new plant, the unit of issue on the BOM item must be the same.

Validity Period (Valid from/to dates)
• •

Becomes effective with the valid from date The validity date is determined by the system automatically to be either the next effective from date, or 12/31/1999.
A B C B from 12/31/95 to 12/31/99 A D

from 1/1/95 to 12/30/95

BOM Scrap Data

Assembly Scrap – yield or process scrap resulting from the assembly of components into a finished or subassembly. It is used for calculating material used in an assembly. MRP increases the material requirements for all components contained in the assembly. Example: Quantity to produce 1000 units with a 1% assembly scrap = 10 units
Component Scrap – considers component loss before the component is used in an assembly. For example, shrinkage during storage. The scrap refers only to the component in the assembly. When the BOM is exploded, MRP increases the quantity of the component. Example: Component Qty of 1000 units with a 5% component scrap would need 1050 units required.

Bill of Material Glossary

BOM Category – categorizes BOM’s to represent different objects; for example:
• •

Material BOM -- structure of products manufactured Equipment BOM -- structure of equipment for plant maintenance • Document BOM -- structure of documents such as drawings (3.0)

BOM Group – is a collective number for all BOM’s in a group which allows for one or several similar products to be decribed under one number.
• •

All Alternatives of a multiple Bill of Material All variants of a variant Bill of Material

BOM Usage – special view of the BOM which represents a specific area of the company in which the BOM is used; for example, Engineering, Production, Costing, Sales, Plant Maintenance. The BOM Usage allows different views to exist without separate BOM’s for each usage. Technical Type – the system distinguishes BOM’s according to whether they represent product variants or production alternatives. If you create a variant for the BOM, the system marks it as a Variant Bill . If there is more than one alternative for a material, the system marks the BOM as a Multiple Bill.

Bill of Material Glossary

BOM Validity – Bills of Material are valid over an area and effectivity period.
 

Area of Validity -- identifies which plants the BOM has been allocated to Validity Period -- identifies the from and to effectivity dates. The default to date is 12/31/9999

Item Category – When you enter a new Bill of Material item, an item category must be assigned. It has important control functions such as:
    

Screen selection Specific processing, such as material number required, negative values supported. The Item Category cannot be changed once set. It must be deleted and re-added. Sizes are maintained for variable-size items Item categories include: • • • • • Stock Items -- material in stock as a component Non-stock Items -- material not stocked - with or without a material number Variable-size -- system calculates the quantity required using formulas PM Structure Item -- used with plant maintenance equipment Document Item -- used with Document BOM’s

Sub-Items – are typically used to represent different installation points for partial quantities of an item.
 

In assembling resistors on a printed circuit board, the installation points are described. There is no logic related to sub-items

MRP Types
Manual Reorder Point Planning: MRP produces order proposals when stock falls below a “reorder point”. The reorder point and safety stock levels are entered manually Automatic Reorder Point Planning: The reorder point and safety stock level are calculated based on the forecast results


Forecast Planning The latest forecast is copied as requirements which are used to create order proposals
Deterministic Planning MRP produces order proposal(s) to match the exact quantity of the requirements based on independent and dependent demands Master Production Scheduling Similar to PD but used for master schedule items


Carrying Out the Planning Run
Total Planning – All materials in a given plant

All materials are reviewed by MRP regardless of activity
Only the materials in a plant that have undergone a change relevant to planning since the last planning run (net change planning)

Planning Interval – Limiting the MRP Planning Interval
example: 100 days

Demand Management

Planning Strategy – Make-to Stock
 

Make product for stock in expectation of customer sales Plan using planned independent requirements for “anonymous” make-to-stock production. Use Net or Gross Requirements Planning
• •

Net Requirements -- includes warehouse stock, planned issues and receipts Gross Requirements -- excludes warehouse stock. Just includes planned and open orders

Example is a shelf stock item such as a bike accessory light Planning Requirement Type is LSF - make to stock which is used in the planned independent requirements transaction Sales Order Requirement is KSL - which is sale from stock

Strategy: Make-To-Stock Production shelf items such as a bike accessory (light) Example: Common
Sale from stock
Warehouse Stock Finished Product


Production Push

Planning Strategy – Planning with Final Assembly
 

Make product in expectation of customer sales

Plan using planned independent requirements at finished goods level
to drive demand to long lead time components

Typically there is a longer lead time to produce than the customer is willing to wait for

Sales orders consume the planned independent requirement quantities

Planned quantities that are not consumed by sales orders result in

excess stock
  

Example is a long lead time custom product Planning Requirement Type is VSF – planning with final assembly

Sales Order Requirement is KSV – which is sales order with

Strategy: Planning with Final Assembly
Example: Custom furniture such as a cherry table

Final Assembly to Sales Order

Sales Order

Warehouse Stock Finished Product



Planned Independent Requirements

MRP without reference to sales order

Production Push

Planning Strategy – Planning Without Final Assembly
Final assembly is initiated by the customer sales order  Stop production at sub-assembly level  Final assembly pull  Example is automobile assembled with unique combination of features (subassemblies)  Planning Requirement Type is VSE -planning without final assembly  Sales Order Requirement is KEV -independent customer order with consumption

Strategy: Planning Without Final Assembly
Example: Option oriented product such as a car

Production Push

Planning Strategy – Planning with Planning Material

Planned independent requirements of Planning Material initiate procurement of the planning bill components Sales orders for the final assembly create planned orders of the finished product and reduce planning quantities for the planning material Possible to plan a family of products from forecast placed on the planning bill. The planning bill details, through percentages, the quantity required for common parts Example is a bike with common sub-assemblies used in many finished items Planning Requirement Type is VSEF -- planning with planning material Sales Order Requirement is KEVV -- independent customer order with planning material

Strategy: Planning with Planning Material
Example: Bikes with the same features except for the color
Planning Sales Order
Customer Stock Finished Product Planning Material



Planned Independent Requirements Note: Percentages drive lower level demands for sub assemblies

Warehouse Stock Assembly 01

Warehouse Stock Assembly 02

Final Assembly Pull

Production Push

Planning Strategy – Planning at (Sub)Assembly Level

Used if forecasts are more reliable at the sub-assembly level. (hour-glass) Sales orders received initiate an explosion of the finished product level Resulting dependent requirements consume the planning quantities of the finished product Must maintain the Mixed MRP Indicator in the Material Master MRP2 View for sub-assembly planning. Maintain the consumption indicator in the item screen of demand management

Example is a PC where the forecast for individual features is more accurate than forecasts for the completed PC’s
Planning Requirement Type is VSFB -- planning at assembly level

Strategy: Planning At Assembly Level
Example: A PC with a large number of end item configurations

Final Assembly Pull

Production Push

Strategy: Production by Lot Size
Example: Combine customer orders for the same item

Warehouse Stock Finished Product

Production by Lot Size Pull

Planning Strategy – Make to Order Production
 

Sales orders are planned according to sales order number Produced quantities for each sales order are managed individually Production and procurement costs are managed in either a settlement order or a project Example is a custom product with a unique structure such that it only applies to a particular customers order Sales Requirement Type is KE -- independent customer order without consumption

Strategy: Make-ToOrder Production
Example: New machinery

Sales Order

Warehouse Stock Finished Product

Production by Lot Size Pull

Consumption Logic
  

Customer requirements consume planning requirements directly before or after it Consumption mode is either determined in the material master record or in the configuration menu of demand management Consumption mode determines either -Backward consumption – requirements directly before the sales order Forward consumption – requirements directly after the sales order Both types are allowed – the system looks for the next closest planning requirements If no consumption periods exist, then you can only consume requirements planned on the same day.

Example -- Forward Consumption
Planned Requirements Customer Requirements

01/07 01/14 01/21 01/28 0 0 0 100 25 -------^

Example -- Backward Consumption 01/07 01/14 01/21 01/28 Planned Requirements 0 100 0 100 Customer Requirements ^----- 25

Cost Objects with Make-toOrder Production
Objects of integrated R/3 modules Material number (MM) • Production order, operation (PP) • Sales order (SD) • Project item (PS) • Network (PS) • CO order (CO)

Basic General Functions for Cost Object Controlling
Master data
• Cost object, cost object hierarchy • Internal/external numbering system

Preliminary costing
• Costing items • Automatic valuation • Planning aids (revalue, copy, reference) • Cost component structure

Simultaneous costing
• Actual quantity used * price • Overheads • Actual yield • Calculation of target costs • Variances according to category • Work in progress

Analysis of actual product costs
• Closed periods • Settlement to stock (at standard price) • Settlement to profitability analysis (variances)

• Summarization using classifiable characteristics • Selection using classifiable characteristics • Cost object analysis

Cost Roll-up
• Costs for assemblies in the low-level code with the highest number are calculated first • Upper level is production costs at this production level • Lower level is costs of all material components processed at this production level • Total costs are the sum of the costs for the upper and lower level costs Finished Product Cost Component Split - Total

Master Production Scheduling

MPS Functions
Separate Planning Run for Master Schedule Items
     

During an MPS run, only master schedule items are planned Dependent requirements are created for the BOM level directly below the planning level Levels below the master schedule items are not planned Changes can be made to the master plan without effecting lower BOM levels Supply orders are reviewed for timing and quantity to match requirements Allows for daily planning without a negative impact on system performance

Planning Time Fence
  

Protects the master plan from automatic changes to the master schedule During a planning run, no automatic change proposals are made within the planning time fence which is determined for each item in the Material Master. The system calculates the planning time fence starting from the planning date

Planning Run Types

Regenerative Planning – all master schedule items are planned for a plant. It is generally used during initial startup to insure all items are planned or when heavy maintenance causes most items to be re-planned. Net Change Planning – only master schedule items which have undergone a change to the supply/demand balance, such as warehouse receipts and issues, are re-planned. It is common to run net change MPS daily. Net Change Planning in the Planning Horizon – shortens the period over which MPS plans to the planning horizon, which is set in Customizing. It is typically set to the length of time of the longest lead time item. This means that only those master schedule items which have undergone a relevant change within the planning horizon are planned.

Firming Planned Orders

The system does not plan new order proposals within the planning time fence. Instead, new requirements needed within the planning time fence are scheduled at the end of the planning time fence, depending on the fixing type.
Order Proposals are Fixed Automatic Order Proposals

Planning Date

Planning Time Fence

During the next planning run, the system places all order proposals that crossed over the planning time fence at the PTF. The master scheduler needs to “fix” or firm these order proposals to the correct date inside the PTF. Once fixed, the system will not change. Orders can be firmed collectively (Planned orders->firm) through selection of MRP controller, material, run schedule, production version, or planning id.
