Following are some of the differences

Repetitive

Implementation considerations:

Produce the same or similar products over a lengthy period of time .

You do not manufacture in individually defined lots. Instead, a total quantity is produced over a certain period at a certain rate per part-period .

products always follow the same sequence through the machines and work centers in production .

Routings tend to be simple and do not vary much .

MRP

MRP 4 view needs to be maintained

Production version needs to be maintained

Specific Master Data

There is specific master data required for Repetitive Manufacturing. This includes the repetitive manufacturing profile and the product cost collector.

Confirmation by doing backflush.(MFBF).

Also few production orders

Cost Object Controlling

In repetitive manufacturing, you usually determine costs per material or per production version via a product cost collector (product cost per period).

Descreet

Implementation cosiderations

Produce different materials or one time production.

Manufacture in lots

Products may follow different sequences not compulsory though.

MRP

MRP4 view need not to be maintained.

PV not applicable

Specific Master Data

Not applicable.

Confirmation for each and every operation required(CO11nor CO15).

Many production orders.

Cost Object Controlling

Production cost by production orders

Hi

Here are difference between Discrete and REM and small explanation about discrete and repetative manf.:

- A typical characteristic of discrete manufacturing is the frequent switching from one manufactured product to another. The products are typically manufactured in individually defined lots, the sequence of work centers through production varying for each one of these. Costs are calculated on the basis of orders and individual lots.

- In Repetitive Manufacturing, products remain unchanged over a longer period and are not manufactured in individually defined lots. Instead, a total quantity is produced over a certain period at a certain rate.

- Discrete manufacturing typically involves varying the sequence of work centers through which the products can pass during production. The order of work centers is determined in routings, which can often be very complex. There can be waiting times between the individual work centers. Also, semi-finished products are frequently placed in interim storage prior to further processing.

- Repetitive Manufacturing, on the other hand, normally involves a relatively constant flow on production lines. Semi-finished products are usually processed further immediately without being put in interim storage. Routings tend to be relatively simple.

- In discrete manufacturing, component materials are staged with specific reference to the individual production lots. Completion confirmations for the various steps and processes document the work progress and enable fine-tune controlling.

- In Repetitive Manufacturing, components are often staged at the production line without reference to a particular order. Completion confirmations are less detailed, and the recording of actual data is simplified.

In Repetitive manufacturing we are following the same sequence of operations for longer period. We have reduced our efforts of Production Order Processing by using Back flushing tool of REM and using Planning Table.
