Q.1 Can we create Production order without BOM and routing?
Q.2 What is the difference between PP and PP-PI? Which one is better and how?
Q.3 If there are some errors in goods movements, and less stock of material consumed, how can we solve that problem in SAP?
Q.4 Explain what is the meaning of exploding a BOM?
Q.5 What are all the different manufacturing scenarios in PP?
Q.6 In SAP system, how to get production order record? Example: I want to know who lock my production order.
Q.7 What is the need of pp in sap, what is the flow diagram of SAP PP?
Q .8 Do you have products with a large number of variants? Do you need Variant Configuration?
Q.9 What we will do after the marking and releasing of standard price in product costing?
Yes we can create a production order without BOM & routing. Change the Config in OPL8 (order type dependent parameters) as routing optional. But it may ask for a sales order when we try to create order using CO01.
PP–> Production Planning mostly used for descrete type of industries, where at the time of confirmation the output is sure to be fixed. E.g. Automobile
PP- PI–> Production Planning for Process Industries, here mostly used for the typical chemical industries, as the Yield is not fixed due to chemical reaction yield values can be varied to noticeable extent. E.g. X+Y =Z some 10 kg of X and 1 KG of Y gives yield that is Z of 10 Kg only.
According to me COGI is basically a SAP standardized system which will tell you that what is the error in some cases it can rectify it too. But if the entry is done manually by MB1A, MB1B, MB1C you have to bring back or cancel the movement or move the stock to desired material and then refresh COGI.
It is the process of multiplying the requirement by the usage quantity and recording the appropriate requirements throughout the product tree.
There are different scenarios in SAP PP module.
1) Make to stock
2) Make to order
3) External processing (Subcontracting)
4) Rework processing
5) Production in another plant
You can use SM12 and type in the Production order number with * at beginning and end. Say like if order number is 100234, type it like *100234* and execute. It will give the list of users who are currently accessing that order.
SAP PP provides capabilities for planning, execution, quality, maintenance. This integrated manufacturing solution gives you the features and functions necessary for you to handle:
Step 1. Material Creation-Finished with suitable material type.
Step 2. Purchasing and procurement of Material
Step 3. Creation of Bills of Material
Step 4. Creation of Work center
Step 5. Creation of routing.
Step 6. Creation of Production Order
Step 7. Confirmation of production order
Step 8. Stock check
Step 9. MRP run
Step 10.Material Procurement
We can have any number of variant product. It is optional you can configure it or at the time of sales order with will be ask for features and options. Every variant has unique identification number.
Price update and the same reflects in the accounting view of the material master
