A production order defines which material is to be processed, at which location, and at what time and how much quantity is required. It also defines which components and sequence of operations are to be used and how the order costs are to be settled.

  • Planned orders are results of running MRP. Shortages of materials that are set to internal procurement will create planned orders, which can be converted into production orders. Production orders are “hard copies”; they cannot be adjusted by an MRP run anymore.



  • BOM and routing data of the materials are copied into the production order which determines the list of components and operational data in the order.



  • Planned Costs also gets updated in the production order via component price and routing activity price.



  • You can run an availability check on production orders which determines any missing components in the order so that you can bring that missing component for the order execution at shop floor.



  • You can print the production order for shop floor which indicates the list of components to be consumed and what kind of operations to be performed in sequence at the work center.



  • After you have physically produced the material, you can declare the production through order confirmation which updates the activities cost such as machine running price, labor price on the order.



  • You can decide to automatically do the backflush (consumption) of components during order confirmation according to the BOM. The consumption will reduce the inventory of components and it is carried out with movement type 261 in SAP.



  • You can also post goods receipt of the material automatically during order confirmation. Goods receipt would increase the inventory of the material, and it is carried out with movement type 101 in SAP.



  • After Order Confirmation, all the cost such as the cost of components and activity cost will be debited on the order, and once you post goods receipt, costs will be credited on the order.



  • Once, production order is fully confirmed and delivered, or business has decided not to execute that order, then it needs to be technically closed which means order will no longer be considered in MRP run and will be deleted from stock/requirement list. Order reservation on components will also be deleted.

How to Create and release Production Order


Production Order creation is required to produce the material and consume the components which are used, and it also specifies the sequence of operations to be performed at the work center.

The release of order signifies that the order is ready to be executed at the shop floor. You can do an automatic release of order also during creation mode by using relevant production scheduling profile in the material master with auto release indicator set.

Step 1)  Open app CO01/ Create Production Order APP

With this app, you can create production orders. A production order defines which material is to be processed, at which location, at what time and how much work is required. It also defines which resources are to be used and how the order costs are to be settled. Production orders can be created manually without being previously requested. Alternatively, they can be automatically created by converting a planned order. A newly created production order has the status CRTD (created) and cannot be executed until it has been released.

  1. Enter the material code for which production order needs to be created.

  2. Enter Plant Code.


After filling in all the fields, click CONTINUE or press Enter to go to the next screen.

Step 2) In this Screen

  1. Input the order quantity.

  2. Select the option”current date” in scheduling sub-screen.


After filling the entire fields press click ENTER to confirm, the system will then copy BOM and Routing data in the order.

 

Step 3) In the same screen,

 

  1. Click   to release the order.


 

  1. The following message will appear in the bottom left corner:


 

  1. Click  to check material availability.


 

  1. The system will show the message regarding the availability of components.


 

Note: You can also decide not to release the order if there are missing parts found in availability checks.

Click button   to save, the following message will show in the bottom left corner: .

 

How to Create Production Order by converting Planned Order


Planned orders are the result of MRP run and should be converted to production order for further execution process.

You cannot directly declare production using planned orders and, therefore, it needs to be converted to Production Order.

Once, planned order is converted to production order, planned order gets deleted from the system and is no longer available to be considered in MRP (Material Requirement Planning).

Step 1) Open app MD16/ Convert Planned Orders APP

With this app you can convert planned orders individual or collective. In addition, you can convert planned orders into partial quantities by generating a production order or a process order for each partial quantity.

Planned orders are internal planning elements that are used for planning purposes and do not trigger any procurement themselves. The system only triggers procurement when they are converted into receipt elements.

 

  1. Select the match code “MRP controller, which is a group of materials.

  2. press Go.


 

The system will show the screen as below.

Step 2) In this screen, we will fetch the planned orders based on MRP controller and selection dates.

 

  1. Enter plant code.



  1. Enter MRP controller



  1. Enter end selection date till all planned orders will be extracted.


Click RUN SELECTION or enter from the keyboard to move to the next screen.

Step 3)In this screen,

 

  1. Select the grid for which you want to convert the planned orders



  1. Press “convert to production order” button for the conversion.


 

Production orders will be created after conversion of planned orders.

 

How to Change production Order/ Manage Production Orders APP


 

With this app, you can monitor the progress of production. You have an overview of the current situation with all the information you need to resolve any issues. For example, if a particular order is delayed, you can navigate to the details to see at a glance why the order is delayed – perhaps there are missing components or there is a quantity deviation. You then have the information you need to take immediate action to resolve the issue and to keep your production processes running as smoothly as possible

 

You might require to change production order in case if your business wants to change some planning quantity or if BOM/Routing has been changed after the order has already been created.

 

 

Step 1) Open app CO02/ Manage Production Orders APP


 

  1. SELECT production order number which you want to modify.


 

 

Step 2) In this screen, the order will be modified.

  1. Change the Order quantity to 9 or whatever your requirement is as shown below.


After finishing all modifications, click button SAVE to save the order. The system will show a message like Order number saved.

 

How to Pick Components for Production Orders

Pick Components for Production Orders (CO27)



  1. Open the Pick Components for Production Ordersapp (CO27).

  2. Enter a profile for displaying the component overview. Enter order selection criteria for the orders and choose Execute.


The component overview is displayed.

  1. Select the components for which you want to execute goods movements. Choose Pick.


The pick list appears.

  1. The input dialog is identical for the pick list and the goods movement overview. You can change individual goods movements, if for instance, a goods movement had errors.

  2. To post the goods issues, choose Save.


You use the Schedule Posting of Predefined Confirmation Processes app, if you also want to execute goods movements that originate from confirmations. For more information, see Schedule Posting of Predefined Confirmation Processes.

 

How to confirm production order


This fact sheet displays contextual information about the production order confirmation created on production order header. In addition the aggregated quantities that were confirmed to date are displayed in this fact sheet.

Step 1) open app CO15/ Confirm Production Orders APP, three activities occur at the same time with confirmation.

 

  1. Generate confirmation document

  2. Consume raw materials or semi-finished goods

  3. Good receipt of finished goods or semi-finished goods



  1. Enter Production order number


After filling in all the fields, click ENTER to go to the next screen

 

Step 2) In this screen, we will enter the actual yield quantity to be confirmed.

 

  1. Enter the yield quantity which is the produced quantity you want to declare


 

  1. Press Goods Movement button at the top to check the automatic goods movement happening along with confirmation


 

 

Step 3) In this screen, you will see the goods receipt of parent material and goods issue of components.

If the control key of the last operation in the order specifies automatic goods receipt, the system automatically posts the produced material to unrestricted stock.

Automatic goods receipt can also be activated by the production scheduling profile in the material masterwork scheduling view.

If you confirm an order with components that have the Backflushing indicator set in the material master MRP2 view, the system automatically posts a goods issue (GI) for these components.

 

  1. Auto Goods receipt (GR), production of material carried out using movement type 101.



  1. Auto Goods issue (GI), consumption of components carried out using movement type 261 (backflush).


 

Click button post to save.

The system will show a message like Y at the lower left corner, to hint how many goods movement are posted successfully or failure.

How to TECO (technically complete) production order


Technical completion of the order is required when production order is either fully delivered, or it is not to be processed further at shop floor.

After technical completion order status changes to TECO, no further goods movement can be done against the order.

Order is no longer available in MRP run and gets deleted from stock/requirement list.

The controlling department can then carry out the variance calculation on the production Order after TECO status.

Step 1) open app CO02/ Manage Production Orders APP

 

  1. Enter the order number which you want to TECO.


 

Click > to next screen after filling all fields,

 

Step 2) In this screen, we will see how to place production order to TECO status,

  1. Click in menu Function-> Restrict processing ->complete technically System will show message in status- TECO


 

  1. System will show message in status- TECO
