SAP Manufacturing- Background Jobs and Associated Programs

Dear All,

We are all aware of the opportunities to automate the processes in SAP, and using the scheduled batch jobs (background jobs) to carry out the routine actions.

In a manufacturing environment, the scheduled batch jobs, running at defined frequency, helps the plant personnel to continue doing what they can do best – ‘manufacturing’ thus generating/adding value to the organization; and relieving them from carrying out repeated, non-value added activities in SAP.

It is nice to find frequent questions in the forums, about typical batch jobs in any particular section of SAP PP – like ‘guide me with the background job details, to process COGI errors through scheduled jobs, daily’, etc.,

Searching around, I could find few useful links, which could be helpful to the users, in general setting up and running of batch jobs. Example below –

http://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/display/Basis/How+to+maintain+and+monitor+background+jobs+via+SAP

But, I could not find a one-stop-reference for the list of routine batch jobs in SAP manufacturing area, together with the respective SAP programs.

So, I thought, I could start of this compilation and request the members to recommend additions or changes as appropriate.

Kindly find below, the list if Activities and associated programs to execute through background jobs.This is just a starting point, and together, we can develop this as a better doc.

Welcoming your suggestions.
