Batch Creation at the release of Process Order

Batch management at MYCOMPANY would be done at Client Level, i.e. each material would have a unique batch number and the system would not assign the same batch number to two different batches of two different materials. Batch numbers creation would be based upon internal number range assignment. would be internally generated and would be maintained at the client level.
Currently, at MYCOMPANY the batch numbers are generated in the following format: 001T01, here the first three characters signify the batch number, the fourth digit signifies the product category and the last two digits signify the product ID.
The batch number would be generated for the semi-finished process orders. The same batch number would be copied to the finished process order.

SAP Enhancement

It is pertinent to highlight here that for the finished products, same batch number from semi-finished production (bulk) would be copied. This would involve SAP enhancement i.e. batch number from the bulk product would be copied to the finished product when the finished order release would be saved in the system. For this purpose, a script (User exit) would be written.

Process order Execution

The process Order Execution in SAP comprises of the following activities:
§         Set-ups
§         Printing shop floor documents.
§         Carrying out material withdrawals/ dispensing.
§         Recording confirmations i.e. recording the order progress status.
§         Carrying out in-process (phase-to-phase) quality inspections.
§         Posting goods receipts from production
§         Quality Inspection

Set-ups

It is the mandatory activity with respect to Process Order management and involves product change over at all resources (tooling/moulds), area cleaning as well as Line Clearance with the approval from the production supervisor and IPC Monitor.

Goods Issuance against Process Order


Process
Description
Process owner
Triggering event
Raw material issuance for film line production
Goods Issue (Dispensing) is issuance of raw/semi-finished materials from the warehouse/semi-finished store to the Process Order. Reserved materials are withdrawn from the warehouse for the order that has been released.

Additional MRN

Shop floor in-charge

Return MRN
It is the process of returning the left over materials from the production storage location to the central warehouse.
Shop floor in-charge/supervisor
As and when required.

Goods Issue (Dispensing) is issuance of raw/semi-finished materials from the warehouse/semi-finished store to the process order. When a process order is created, the system automatically generates a reservation for the required material components. Each material component of the order receives a separate item number within the reservation. Reserved materials can be withdrawn from the warehouse for the order that has been released. On withdrawal, the values of the material components are updated as actual material costs in the order.
Once an order is released the system generates a Pick list, the pick list is a document containing all items released for picking (selecting items from a warehouse) and materials would be dispensed or issued to the shop floor against this pick list.
At MYCOMPANY, the expiry date is calculated from the date at which the raw materials required for manufacturing are dispensed, hence the date of goods issuance will be used for calculation of expiry date of the finished product.
