How to Design Production Processes for Pre-Complete Assembly Check of Process Manufacturing in SAP DM

Design Production Processes

To design production processes without any coding skills DMC delivers the app Design Production Processes. The app helps to model various production processes using a graphical design tool. The production processes define the interaction between machines or define rules, actions, and workflows that control the execution on the shop floor. The custom-made business process extension can be consumed and used like a standard business service within the Design Production Process app.

Objective: Define the production process for per-complete SFC check. Hence the process should be by clicking on the Complete button production process will be triggered and check if the user assembled or not. If the components are assembled, then the system allow to complete the SFC otherwise the system doesn’t allow to complete the SFC.


Step:1 Create Production Process

Need to go Design Production Processes app (Path->Manufacturing Automation->Design Production Processes), now able to create a production process. Here, we will learn how to create a production process design for a pre-complete assembly check (Process Manufacturing). Need to put the Production process name and description and create the process.

Need to put Name, ID, Description, and Runtime Type to create production process, now process variable session is enabled to declare production process. Now go to the editor and design the production process as per the requirement.

Step:2 Production Process flow

At 1st take the start controls and need to add the Inputs parameters as per the requirement by clicking on the manage parameters button. After that need to add Check Component services and map the input parameter as per the requirement.

As we know for process manufacturing GI is being confirmed against phase. Hence, need to map the Operation as Phase

Now, need to add the Complete SFC service and map the Body parameter as per the requirement.

Now, need to end the production process. Hence to need the End controls.

Step:3 Test the Production Process

Need to save the Production Process by clicking on the Save All button, click on the Quick Deploy to deploy the created production process, and run the process standalone.

Click on the Run button to execute the Production process standalone. Then put the required input and again click on the Run button.

Step:4 Add the Production Process into the Complete Button

Need to go to the POD designer (Path->Manufacturing Configuration->POD Designer), and open the custom POD (Process Order).

Now, need to configure the Complete button. Go to assign action and add the created production process. Also, need to map the variable with parameters.

Now, it has been working through the POD.
