Correction of wrong Labor values

Former Member
0 Kudos

Dear Gurus,

Problem:

There are some around 50-100 Production Orders which were created with wrong Labour Time values & then released.

The wrong values are around 2000 times the correct values.

These orders were executed,confirmed with GI & GR, settlement done & have status TECO.

This execution was done in the Month of Nov which is previous period & closed.

The controlling team has realised this error now after they found huge difference.

Constraints:

The postings were done in previous period.

Finished Goods have been shipped to customer

The finished Products are seralised i.e serial number is activated.

Correction Steps:

1) Open the previous period.

2) Reverse the Settlement & Variances.

3) Change the Production Order Status from TECO.

4) Cancel the confirmations done & reverse the material movements.

5) Confirm the Order with correct labour values & proceed with rest of steps to complete the Order.

Questions:

Is it possible to correct the situation?

The above mentioned steps are correct or need any modification?

Since the number of Order correction is huge can a batch be scheduled to correct these or these have to be done manually?

Kindly share your expertise on how to correct the situation.

Awaiting for your inputs

Thanks & Regards,

HP

Hi HP,

As explained by you, amount of work involved in resolving the issue you mentioned is huge as per correction steps mentioned.

Check with controlling if they can post any entry or adjust the cost incurred by additional timing by posting any reverse entry independently. If not then, it will be huge task to complete as mentioned below,


Is it possible to correct the situation?

You are using serial number in your scenario, and the finished goods are already shipped from plant against sales order.

This is a risk, because the FG which is serial number managed is already shipped and no stock in plant. So for reversal stock is mandatory. Otherwise corrections in these reversals may not give successful result.

If you have FG stock and if you reverse the stock and if it is quality managed then you have to use OSS note 175842. Then you can carry on with correction steps mentioned by you.


The above mentioned steps are correct or need any modification?

Above mentioned steps are correct, but with the constraint mentioned above, correcting these errors with production module is much difficult, if you can adjust costing entries by any alternate way then it would be better. Check with costing person on the same.


Since the number of Order correction is huge can a batch be scheduled to correct these or these have to be done manually?

Based on correction steps you mentioned, for reversal you do not have any standard program for all steps. You have to create LSMW or develop with the help of ABAP consultant.

Hope instead of resolving this issue by correction method you mentioned, check with costing person stating these constraints and try to find alternative way.

Best regards,

Thank You Sharat & Ravi for your inputs.

The corrections steps have been shared with client but no response.

Discussion with CO consultant  also suggested the same process.

So awaiting for some more inputs before i close this thread.

Wish you all a Happy, Prosperous & Safe New Year.

Hi,

For correcting only the labour values, its not required to disturb the material movements posted(Assuming no auto GI or GR is done). The confirmations only can be reversed and post the confirmations with correct values in previous period itself. After confirmations correction, you can execute the variance calculation and settlement process.

The task is not simple as the number of orders are more and suggested to check for an alternate solution with CO consultant.
