Applicable Process Steps
|Create Planned Independent Requirements|
This process step shows you how to create planned independent requirements (PIR), which are used to perform demand management functions. A planned independent requirement contains one planned quantity and one date, or a number of planned independent requirements schedule lines, that is, one planned quantity split over time according to dates.
Instead of creating single requirement, sometimes a requirements plan that includes one or more planned independent requirements can be maintained for mass processing. In this case, the requirements are grouped and maintained under a requirement plan number.
|Material Requirements Planning (MRP)|
MRP generates planned orders for the material to be produced. This process step shows you how to display the planned orders that are generated in the SAP Fiori app Monitor Material Coverage. After MRP, the system generates planned orders for material and dependent requirements for raw materials.
|Adjust Planning in Planning Table|
This process step shows you how to plan the production of materials on the production lines.
|Check Range of Stock Coverage||You check the stock coverage to review the status of material stock and coverage in days.|
This process step shows you how to stage materials for production. If there is sufficient stock available on the production storage location, line items will not be generated. You may also print the Pull List.
|Confirm Repetitive Manufacturing Inclusive Backflush of Materials|
This activity executes multiple activities in a single step, such as finished product goods receipt, backflush of component materials, posting of costs to cost collector, and creation of material and journal entry.
Errors can occur in backflushing. For example, there may not be sufficient warehouse stock available or important data, such as the issue storage location, may be missing. You then have the following options:
|Post Processing of Error Records|
This process step shows you how to use this function to create a list of components that have to be post-processed to post process backlogs from backflushing.
|Review Manufacturing Object Pages|
This process step shows you how to review the different objects pages available for different roles in the area of manufacturing.
