Final Issue flag on residual quantity in batch determination

Former Member

Guys,

When we do batch determination, a small quantity is left over in first row. For ex, material X is required as 10 lt. Two batches of of 4,5 lt is assigned. So the remaining quantity is 1 lt. We never produce 1 lt so we should not send this quantity to MRP as requirement. Whats the best way to kill this requirement? Setting Final issue flag through some exit or net requirement calculation change in MRP? etc. Please advise

Cheers

Sunny

Hello Sunny:

These is a typical situation in MPS/MRP planning where little scrap on semi-finished is expected. The systems in the planning detect a "shortage" and then propose a new planned order. This happens in the time window between GR for Semi-finished product order and GI for Finished product order.

These are alternatives to handle this situation:

  • Before the MPS/MRP execution you should modify the finished product orders. The requirement quantity of the semifinished item  should be according the actual production quantity. You can use CO24 Missing Part Info System to knows orders that should be modified.

  • You can use  Firmning Type 4  and planning time fence to protect the production plan.


firming type 4

Procurement proposals that move into the planning time fence are not firmed automatically by the system. The system does not create any new procurement proposals within the planning time fence; that means, the system does not balance the shortage situation in the planning time fence.

Hello Sunny

When you post a confirmation, you should check the flag "clear open reservations", so that system automatically sets the final issue indicator.

If this is not possible, you can do that using BAdI WORKORDER_GOODSMVT, which is called during the confirmation.

Hello Guys,

Thanks for the answer.

The main problem is Lets say requirement of component is 10 lt to produce 5 lt of finished good but picked up batches are three each of 4 lt. Hence 12 lts was picked up (GI). Since 12 lt component qty is issued instead of 10 lt hence the total qty to be produced will be more than 5 lt which lets say as per current exit is 7 lt. Hence standard SAP will recalculate all the component quantities. In this case, system will say that component qty required is 13 lt and 1 lt will be top row and rest three batches of 4 lt each will be next three lines. In the top most row, only 1 lt left and final issue flag gone although clear reservation was set. So how to set this FI flag again as we don't want to produce this extra small quantity.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

Hello Sunny,

Technical completion the order, set status TECO or Deliver complete Indicator sets the DLV status to your order so system will clear all the open reservation 'Final issue' (RESBD-KZEAR)

Or you can develop some custom report to update 'Final issue' (RESBD-KZEAR)

Hi Brahmankar,

There are still operations/phases remaining, so TECO the order is not an option. Just wondering that there is no exit suitable for it? Already checked Exit_SAPLCOBT_001 and updated RESBD-KZEAR in debug mode but it doesn't save it unfortunately.

Any comments?

Hello

In my opinion, the best solution is to post the confirmation with the flag "clear open reservations" on the operation where the materials are consumed. This way, KZEAR should be set automatically.

If you want to go for a custom development, try BAdI WORKORDER_GOODSMVT, which is called during the confirmation and changes the goods movement data.

SunnyRoy,

If you are talking about a production order requirement then you can TECO the order so that open requirements gets closed.

You can do mass TECO through COHV transaction for multiple orders.

If you are looking for any enhancement to restrict the open requirement from MRP other than standard way then check BADI MD_CHANGE_MRP_DATA
