Process Steps for Integration of Manufacturing Execution System to Production Operation (1Y5)

Applicable Process Steps

Process StepDescription
Material Staging for Final AssemblyIn this activity, you stage materials for production. If there's sufficient stock available in the production storage location, no line items are generated.
Release Production Order for Final AssemblyYou carry out a release at order operation level to release the order and all its operations. The order and the operations receive the REL (released) status.Prerequisite: the production order created by the MRP controller has been assigned a release date in accordance with the scheduling margin key.
Check Serial NumbersThe Finished Good material is managed with serial numbers. The system generates a serial number for each finished good when the production order is released.Prerequisite: the serial number profile is defined in the material master record and the production order is released.
Process and Confirm Shop Floor in Manufacturing Execution SystemThe Outbound Delivery IDoc is received in the (third-party) Manufacturing Execution system. Some follow-up processes need to be done there:
  • Pick Components for Final Assembly
  • Process Shop Floor Item
  • Confirm Shop Floor Item

The confirmation information is sent back automatically to SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition.

Pick Components for Final AssemblyThe released production order is now ready for picking. Only those materials that are not in the service stock at the assembly aisle are to be picked. For picking, the production operator selects the specific picking list that can be called up directly with the production order number. The production operator has a series of further selection options to allow for optimal worklist selection.Prerequisite: there must be sufficient material in stock.
Confirm Production Operations for Final AssemblyThe confirmation documents the processing status of orders, operations, sub-operations, and individual capacities. It's an instrument for controlling orders.

The confirmations have to be done in the respective Manufacturing Execution system and will be distributed to SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition.

Prerequisite: The production order for the finished product has been released and distributed to a Manufacturing Execution system.
Review Production OrderAfter releasing or confirming the finished goods orders, the production supervisor could display and check the order using the Manage Production Orders (F2336) app for the finished good.
Final Confirmation of Production Operations for Final AssemblyIn the usual business practices, confirmations of all assembly activities of the production order are executed before posting the goods receipt. The backflush is carried out together with the confirmation steps.
Post Goods Receipt for Final Assembly Production OrderIn this activity, you post the goods receipt for the production order.
Preview Goods Receipt Slip and Label (Optional)In this step, you preview the material document.

Business Roles for Integration of Manufacturing Execution System to Production Operation (1Y5)

Click on the available pictogram to display according information and the relevant piece of the hierarchy.

Access to business applications is controlled by role-based authorization management. You assign Business Roles to Business Users, and the roles provide access to business tasks. Business Users are defined as employees, contractors, or other individuals that need access to the SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition system.

How to find Business Roles for a scope item

  1. Navigate to https://rapid.sap.com/bp/#/BP_CLD_ENTPR.
  2. Select your country localization from the Version drop-down list.
  3. In the Solution Scope section, expand the relevant scope item group.
  4. Select a scope item.
  5. Download the test script.
  6. Navigate to the Roles section of the test script.

A Business Role is assigned to a Business User to grant permission to access applications in SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition.

One or more Business Catalogs have been assigned to a Business Role. Business Catalogs include access to one or more applications, dashboards, or displays of data.

Administrators can control visibility to the data granted through the catalog by applying General Restrictions to Business Catalogs. By maintaining access restrictions, you can define the subset of all existing business objects a user can view (read) or edit (write) when working with a particular business role.

The Business Catalog defines which access categories are available (Value Help, Read, Write), and for which fields restriction values can be maintained. The fields vary per catalog, as they are based on the fields within the apps in the catalog. The Business Role aggregates restrictions for all Business Catalogs.

Administrators define a restriction based on a supported field (for example, company code, country, controlling area, and so on). Supported restriction fields vary per Business Catalog, as they are based on the fields within the apps in the catalog. You can restrict data access for the Value Help, Read, and Write separately. Read access always includes Value Help access, and Write access always includes Read access.

How to identify the Business Catalog(s) mapped to a Business Role and the Fiori application(s) mapped to a Business Catalog:

  1. Log into the SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition system.
  2. Select the Manage Business Roles application from the Launchpad.
  3. Select a Business Role.
  4. Select the Assigned Business Catalogs tab to view the standard Business Catalogs assigned to the standard Business Role.
  5. Select a Business Catalog.
  6. Select the Catalog Description tab to view the Functional Description, Authorization Criteria, and Associated Catalogs information.
  7. Select the Applications tab to view the Fiori apps mapped to the Business Catalog.
Please do not edit SAP Standard Business Roles directly. To customize Business Roles, always make a copy of the SAP Standard Business Role or use the option Create From Template in the Maintain Business Roles application.

To apply General Restrictions, an Administrator should first make a copy of the SAP Standard Business Role, or create a new role based on the SAP Standard Business Role Template. For example, if you need to restrict access in the Accounts Payable Accountant Business Role for some users to only Company Code 1710 (United States), and for some users to only Company Code 1010 (Germany), you will create two new Business Roles based on the SAP Standard Accounts Payable Accountant role. You should name the roles accordingly (for example, Accounts Payable Accountant_1710). In the first business role, you will edit the role and maintain the restriction value(s) for the entire Business Role (that is, define the Company Code field = 1710). Then, you may edit the individual business catalogs within the role and define the access category (that is, Value Help, Read, Write) as Restricted. When you create a new Business Role, the Read access is set to Unrestricted and Write access is set to No Access by default. When an access category is Restricted, you must select a specific field value (for example, Company Code = 1710) or grant unrestricted access. If you leave fields empty within a business catalog, a user will be assigned No Access to the field in the business catalog's granted apps.
