Variations in Confirmation Processes Across Industries in SAP PP
In this blog post, we will explore the distinctions in confirmation processes tailored to specific industries within SAP PP.
|Discrete Industry||Process Industry||Repetitive Industry|
|Purpose: In discrete manufacturing, confirmations are used to record the actual completion of manufacturing operations for individual products or product variants.||Purpose: In process industries (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals), confirmations are used to record the completion of batch production following specific recipes or formulas.||Purpose: In repetitive manufacturing, confirmations are used to record the production of standard products or assemblies on a continuous basis.|
–> Confirmation typically includes recording the actual quantities produced, labor hours, machine time, and materials consumed for a specific manufacturing order.
–> It is often performed at work centers or production lines.
–> Quality checks and inspections may be part of the confirmation process.
–> Confirmation involves recording precise data such as batch quantities, raw material usage, process parameters, and quality measurements.
–> It often includes batch-specific data like pH levels, temperature, and pressure.
–> Compliance with regulatory standards and quality control is critical.
–> Confirmation often involves recording output quantities and times for production runs.
–> It may include scrap or rework information.
–> Confirmations are typically recorded in large volumes and are used for production efficiency tracking.

|Discrete confirmations deal with complex or customized products||Process confirmations involve standard products or batches||Repetitive confirmations involve standard products or batches|
|Discrete confirmations often capture production quantities and resource usage.||Process confirmations include precise batch-related data and quality parameters.||Repetitive confirmations focus on production quantities and efficiency.|
|Regulatory Compliance: Not Madatory||Regulatory Compliance: Process industries have strict regulatory requirements, so process confirmations must comply with these standards.||Regulatory Compliance: Not Madatory|
Here we get clear idea about difference between Confirmation in Industry Specific.
