Intro: - Hi folks, I am writing this blog on “Selection of Production Version” at the time of converting  Planned order to Production order.

Aim: - Let’s assume for one Finish goods there are lot of productions versions, when we create planned order and convert it into Production order specific production version is selected automatically, based on how we set the master data in MRP 4 view (production version).

With the help of this Blog, we understand how to select production version manually, when we convert planned order into production order.

What is production version?

  • A production version determines which alternative BOM is used together with which task list/master recipe to produce a material. With the help of production version, we can differentiate our material in many ways. Production version was optional in the ECC version, but it become mandatory in the new S4/HANA version, for all types of production.


Process:

First as we can see the production versions for the finish goods.

Here in this image seven production versions are available for finish goods.


Production version screen T-code: - C223


 

Now check the configuration of “Order type-dependent parameter” in T-code OPL8.

Select correct plant & order type.

So here production version selection is Automatic i.e., 0


Order Type-Dependent screen T-code: - OPL8


 

Now given Planned Independent Requirement for Finish goods which is 100970. Then run the MRP through MD02 and the requirements are generated as well as planned order gets created.

Check MD04 screen


Stock/Requirement list screen T-code: - MD04


 

Now convert this planned order into production order.

After directing to CO01 screen go to master data tab, now you can see production version gets selected automatically based on availability.


Production order screen T-code: - CO01


 

 

To avoid the automatic selection of production version we can make the following changes in to the configuration of “Order type-dependent parameter” in T-code OPL8.

  • Production version: - Select 1 (Manual selection of production version)

  • BOM explosion: - Select 2 (Read with newly determined explosion date)



Order Type-Dependent screen T-code: - OPL8


 

Here, we have given PIR for Finished goods which is 100970. Then run the MRP through MD02 and the requirements are generated and planned order gets created for finished goods.

Check MD04 screen


Stock/Requirement list T-code: - MD04


 

Now try to convert Planned Order into Production Order, In MD04 screen.

System asks me to select the production version.

Now here we can choose 0005 production version.


 

 

After choosing production version, we are directing to CO01 screen, in which we can see the selected production version.


Production order screen T-code; - CO01


 

Summary: - With the help of this blog, we can understand the manual selection of production version at the time of converting planned order into production order when there are multiple production versions for a single Finished good and order type dependent parameter configuration and how it will affect the production version selection.

 

Conclusion: - In this blog we have cover the manual selection of production versions, at the time of converting planned order into production order, by doing change in order type dependent parameter configuration screen.

This was the use of the order type dependent parameter in this blog.

Hello

I tried the same config but still PV is getting auto picked when converting planned order to production order.

Kindly let me know if some other config is also needed.

Thank you

Hi Harsh,

Please check again in OLP8 transaction below configuration: -

1. Production version: – Select 1 (Manual selection of production version)

2. BOM explosion: – Select 2 (Read with newly determined explosion date)

If the configuration are correct as shows in above, so please check your plant and order type combination.

Please check and let me know if anything required?

Thanks

Very Informative blog! I Appreciated. Keep Going on.
Informative blog.
What does this look like if trying to mass convert planned orders to production orders? Does it pop up an option in COHV to pick for each order?
