Goods consumption of serialized component which is not produced in DMC

Overview

In SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud, the inventory can be integrated from SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA to shop floor as floor stock for production consumption. For the integration with SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA on-premise system, IDoc INVCON is used for inventory replication. This blog post describes the configuration and operation steps in SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud for the goods consumption of serialized component which is not produced in SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud.

Pre-requisition

Apply the SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud integration with SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA according to SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud Integration Guide.

Configuration

As ‘Serial number’ is not included in IDoc INVCON, data field ‘ERP_SERIAL_NUMBER’ is required for data collection at assembly point. The collected serial number will be included in the outbound message from SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud to SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA for consumption reporting.

The data type can be named according to customer’s name pattern. After assigning the new data type to ‘Data to Collect at Assembly’ of material master data, the serial number of component can be collected for consumption.

Summary

For the consumption of serialized component which is not produced in SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud, data field ‘ERP_SERIAL_NUMBER’ need be configured.

  • Do configuration of integration between SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud and SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA on-premise system
  • Configure data field ‘ERP_SERIAL_NUMBER’ into the data type for assembly data collection of Material Master
  • Download serialized inventory from SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA on-premise system to SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud as floor stock
  • Assemble floor stock with Inventory ID and serial number collected in SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud
  • The consumption of serialized component which is not produced in SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud is synchronized to SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA on-premise system automatically
