Master Sata for Rework Processing – Work-in-Process (BJQ)

Required Master Data Scripts

Create Product Master of Type "Finished Good" (BNT)The material or product master contains information about all the physical materials that are procured, produced, stored and sold. It is also used to manage information about services, for example, for buying and selling services in hours.

The material master holds information such as unique material number, name, material type, unit of measure, descriptions, weight, and dimensions. This material information is used and stored in transactions such as sales orders, deliveries, purchase orders, and goods movements.

As all information for one material is stored centrally, material master information is organized into different views. For example, sales, storage, MRP, costing, and accounting.

Some information in each material is specific to particular organizational units. For example, a sales description is specific to a sales unit (known as a sales area), an MRP controller is specific to a specific site (known as a plant), or some information might be specific to a storage location.

Create Production Work Center (BNJ)A work center is where production operations are carried out. For example, a work center may represent a production line, machine, group of machines, employee, or group of employees.

A work center holds information used for capacity planning (such as available capacity), scheduling (such as formula for processing time) and costing (such as cost center). This information is used in task lists and in transactions such as production work orders. Information is specific to a production site (known as a plant).

Create Material BOM for Engineering, Production and Sales (BNK)A production bill of material is a formally structured list of the components that make up a product or assembly (part of a product). The list contains the object number of each component, together with the quantity and unit of measure.

A component might be a raw material or a semi-finished material representing an assembly. It is used in an MRP run to calculate material requirements and in transactions such as a production order.

Information is specific to a production site (known as a plant).

Create Routing (BNL)A production routing defines the production process for a material. It contains the operations or work steps to be carried out during production. It defines the use of materials and work centers. It forms a template for a production order and is the basis for product costing.

A routing is defined for a finished product or semi-finished product and is specific to a production site (known as a plant). It applies for a given lot size and consists of a number of operations with each one allocated to a work center.

Create Production Version (BLD)A production version is the link between a product bill of material (BOM) and the process routing. It determines which alternative BOM is used together with which routing to produce a material or plan a material.

There may be different production versions based on the lot sizes and validity dates.

Create Reference Operation Set (BLE)A reference operation set is a type of routing that consists of a series of operations that recur frequently. However, a reference operation set is not the same as a production routing.

A routing is used to define the production process of a material, where a reference operation set is used within the routing. You can reduce the effort spent creating the routing by "referencing" the reference set in the routing. This means all changes you make in the future to the reference set are automatically implemented in the referenced operations of the routing.

Configuration Apps for Rework Processing – Work-in-Process (BJQ)

Configuration Apps

Configuration apps are the Self-Service Configuration User Interfaces (SSCUIs) in the SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition application Manage Your SolutionConfigure Your Solution.

Define Default Values


You use this configuration item to specify which data is contained in an operation that is automatically created during order creation. Within order creation, you can determine that an operation is created automatically if no routing exists for the material to be produced or no routing can be selected.

The automatically created operation should contain the following data, for example:

  • Control key

    The control key specifies how an operation is processed (for example, whether it is scheduled, costed, and so on)

  • Operation number
  • Operation short text
  • Material group (only for external processing)
  • Work center where the operation is carried out


Specify the data for operations automatically created by the system.
