Dear rajam

If you do not want to produce finished products until you receive a sales order, then follow make to order strategy which will always support a very close customer-vendor relationship, because your sales orders are closely linked to production.

Make to order Scenario

1. Make-to-order production is a process in which a product is individually manufactured for a particular customer. In contrast to mass production for an unspecified market where a material is manufactured many times, in make-to-order production a material is created only once though the same or a similar production process might be repeated at a later time.

2. You can use make-to-order production: (a) For branches of industry or products where a small quantity of products with a large number of different characteristics are manufactured (b) When a product has to be assembled particularly for a sales order.

3. Stock keeping is not usually carried out for products that are made to order. In companies using make-to-order production, the demand program only determines the production area, in which various variant types are produced. Depending on how you track the costs associated with make-to-order production, there are two ways to process make-to-order items during sales order processing.

(a) Make to order using sales order

(b) Make to order using project system (not relevant for SD application)

4. for make to order production using the sales order, all costs and revenues involved for an order item are held collectively at that item. A particular rule is used that can be changed manually to transfer costs to profitability analysis.

5. make to order production is largely a production planning configuration. It is also controlled by the requirements type, which is determined by three things

the strategy group (MRP 3) in MMR

the MRP group (MRP1) in MMR

the item category and MRP type (MRP 1)

6. Make-to-order production is controlled by the requirements type. The requirements type is determined on the basis of the MRP group (MRP1) and the strategy group (MRP3) in the material master record. In addition, a plant must be assigned for make-to-order items in the sales order.
