How to Access SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition Scope Item Process Flows and Test Scripts

  1. Navigate to SAP Best Practices for SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition for Enterprise Management.
  2. Select a country localization from the Version dropdown list.
  3. If necessary, select the Login icon in the upper left corner to log in.
  4. Go to the Accelerators section and, under General Documents, select the link SAP Best Practices content library.
  5. Select the relevant scope option checkboxes to filter information and locate scope item test scripts and process flows.
Ignore the BPMN2 version of process flows.


  • This scope item enables you to carry out repetitive manufacturing. Repetitive manufacturing is commonly used when a production process meets the following criteria:

    The same or similar products are produced over a lengthy period. The products produced are not manufactured in individually defined lots. Instead, a total quantity is produced over a certain period at a certain rate. The products produced always follow the same sequence through the machines and work centers in production. Routings tend to be simple and do not vary greatly.

  • This scenario starts with Planned Independent requirements (PIR). These are used to perform demand management functions. Material Requirements Planning (MRP) generates planned orders for the material to be produced. By using the planning table, planning the production of materials and capacity on the production lines can be completed. The confirmation of Repetitive Manufacturing triggers multiple activities, such as finished product goods receipt, backflush of component materials, and posting of costs to cost collector.

Key Process Steps Covered

  • Creation of planned independent requirements

  • Planning of material requirements at plant level

  • Adjustment of planning in planning table

  • Checking range of stock coverage

  • Material staging

  • Confirmation of assembly activities and repetitive manufacturing backflush

  • Post processing of error records


  • Make-to-stock production based on run schedules without reference to sales orders

  • Simplified handling of the production process with full cost control

  • Confirmation of assembly activities without using production or process orders
