If we select the first option i.e backflush in material master ,then the material is always issued automatically wherever its requirement is generated.No need to issue the goods to the work centres.

If we select the second option i.e backflush at work centre level, then material is automatically issued to only that work centre. In this case we have to tick the backflush indicator in work centre also

1 Always backflush

means material is checked wether available in stock or not.

if available it issues material to prod. order automatically..

If mat. is not available, Prod order or operation can not be confirmed..

2 Work center decides whether to backflush

on the basis of work center setting material can be issued..

Hi Aisha Ishrat

You can set the backflushing indicator in -

MRP 2 View of material master OR

Work center basic data tab page OR

Routing.

With a back flushing indicator, system automatically post goods issue of component when the corresponding operation is confirmed completely from the sloc specified. There is no need to carry out manual goods issue ie 261 movement type.

There are following two option available for backflush. They are self explainatory -

1 Always backflush

2 Work center decides whether to backflush
