This document explains the integration between PP and Sales and Distribution (SD) module…..
Overview: Integration between PP and SD happens in the following scenarios….
A) Demand Management : Make to order manufacturing…
B) Variant Configuration : Based on the characteristic values assigned in the sales order , picking of the components from Super BOM and picking of the operations from Super routing…
A) Demand Management : In make to order scenario you manufacture a product only for a particular customer that too after receiving the order from the customer…here there is no forecasting or planning is done for the material….
we will look in to the settings we need to make for this and the process flow….
maintain strategy group 20 in the MRP 3 view in the material master as shown for the finished material…
Sales order is created for the material through VA01 once the customer order is received..
sales order is shown in MD04 screen…
MRP executed for the material…
Execution of MRP results in creation of planned order…
Now convert the planned order to production order. Here you can observe the sales order no reference in the production order as shown below… this means this production order executed exclusively for the particular customer….
Once after completing all the production activities like GI, confirmation and GR…you will get the sales order stock instead of unrestricted use stock as shown below….this sales order stock can be delivered to the particular sales order for which it is produced.. you can not make the delivery of this stock to a another different sales order…
B) Variant Configuration: During variant configuration, based on the values assigned to the characteristics during creation of sales order, picking of the components from Super BOM and picking of the operations from Super routing happens during creation of production order, based on the various types of object dependencies created in the system…..
Configurable material having Super BOM is as shown below…Super BOM of a configurable material contains all the components that are required to manufacture the material. The BOM contains components that are only used in specific variants (variant parts), as well as components that are used in all variants (non-variable parts).
Super routing will contain all the operations for producing all variants of the Product as shown below….
During the variant configuration, while creation of sales order user will do the value assignment to the characteristics as per the requirement….
Once the sale order is saved and it is shown in MD04 screen….
Once after completion of MRP run and then when we convert the resulted planned order to production order, system will select only components which are required to produce the particular variant instead of selecting all the components as shown below….
In the operations you can observe system selects the operations, which are required to produce the particular variant, instead of selecting all the operations as shown below….
this case also you can observe the reference of sales order in the production order as shown below….
