Routing Common FAQ’s

Introduction :

This document gives in sight on Routing Common FAQ’s which are faced by users.

FAQ 1: Whenever routing is created or changed using CA01/CA02 tcodes existing group number is displayed on the screen. User while creating/changing the routing for new material tend to make changes with different group number.

Refer the below config to clear the group number automatically from Routing screen.

In Tcode OP8B for routing ‘N’ un-check ‘TL’ Checkbox as displayed in the below screen shot.


FAQ 2:  In Routing screen certain fields are required as mandatory fields. For Eg: Revision level as displayed below.


In such cases required config to be done at tcode OP5A: PP task lists: initial screen -> Revision Level  -> Transaction code -> Tick Required/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/v5_400668.png

FAQ 3: Planned Labor Cost is not displayed in production order. But if operations are entered manually in order operation details screen then planned cost is displayed.

  1. Check the control key maintained in routing. Control key should have Cost tick.
  2. Check for the operation in operation details screen under general data Cost Relevency = X (100% Relevent for costing)
  3. If control key is marked with cost and cost relevency for the operation is not marked as X, then planned labour cost will not flow on order.

FAQ 4: There are four operations 0010,0020,0030 and0040, out of which 0030 is not applicable for costing.

Define new control key in OP67 and uncheck cost. Assign this control key in routing for the operation 0030.This operation will not be relevent for costing run.

FAQ 5: Routing is available for the material but while converting planned order to production order could not be created with Message as “No Routing Found”.
