PI Sheets in PP-PI offer a lot of functionality to streamline a manufacturing process in SAP ERP. During my time in consulting I realized that it is essential that project team members have a common understanding on what these PI Sheets look like and what they are suposed to do. In that time I have developped several tools to support this and I have now uploaded them to SDN.
These tools can also be used for the new work instruction sheets which are available for the production order (PP) in discrete industries (Release ERP 2006 EhP3 and beyond).

To get the tools go to this XStep Cafe post. Select the part ‘PI Sheet Productivity Tools’. The zip file contains a Word documentation and the following files:
