1 Setting up Production

Purpose

In this exercise, you will define the process for production orders such that material staging types are utilized.
Engineering has designed a new flywheel for an existing pump. It is your responsibility to set up the production
line for this new material so that the new, revised pump can be manufactured on your existing production line.
You want to set this material up to be stored at point of use on the production floor and replenished based on a
visual cue.
You will verify the supply area, create a control cycle for the new material, enter a production order for the new
pump, stage all the required materials, complete the production order and stock the finished assembly. This
exercise covers the full circle of events required for managing the entire production process.
Keep in mind that the steps in this exercise are not necessarily all performed by warehouse personnel, but are
generally performed by a combination of production, planning and warehouse personnel. As you work through
the exercise, think about which personnel in your company might perform each task..

1.1 PART ONE:

1.1.1 Look at the Production Supply Area PSA_MEXT01 in the Warehouse Master Data.

Which Storage Location is assigned to your supply area? _______

1.1.2 The production supply area is linked in Production Planning to the Work Center. Go to the work center T-
WM## Basic Data view and verify that the correct supply area is assigned.

1.1.3 Use Field Level help to determine where in R/3, other than WM, is the Supply Area Used?
_______________________________________

1.1.4 Display the Control Cycle and verify the following:

In order to have pick parts staged by production order, there must be one
material-independent control cycle. Does this control cycle exist? _____
For this material-independent control cycle, to which bin will the materials be
delivered ? _________________

1.1.5 The new flywheel, T-WM07-##, is a crate part and is delivered to the production line based on a visual cue.
There are 2 Containers, each holding 20 flywheels. The container is stored on the production floor in
storage type 100 in a bin labeled PSA-BIN##. When one container becomes empty, it is replenished from
the warehouse. Based on this information, create a control cycle record for this flywheel.

Field Name or Data Type Values


No. of Kanbans
Kanban Quantity

Storage Type
Storage Bin

Why cant you use a dynamic bin for a crate part? ________________
_________________________________________________________

1.1.6 For this control cycle, you must request the first lot of materials to be delivered to the floor. Perform WM
Staging on the crate part to create a Transfer Requirement in the warehouse. (Note: Typically, this task is
performed by either a production worker or a material handler in production when the materials need to be
refilled. Since this is a new control cycle, this first request is to get the process started.) Create the TR, but do
not process it yet.

1.2 PART TWO:

Changing responsibilities, you now represent the Production Planner in your company. Engineering has determined
that you are ready to build the pump with the new flywheel. You need to create and release a production order, and
have the materials moved from the warehouse to support production.

1.2.1 Check the production orders created for the following materials in the system for your group . Access the
Production order in change mode and release the Production Order. Do WM Staging for the same.

1.2.2 Back in the warehouse, there are requirements to be processed from the warehouse to the production floor.
Display the Transfer Requirements that have been created by the WM Staging. What requirement type
should you use to display production requirements? ______ Leave the Requirement Number blank so
you see all requirements for production.

1.2.3 Process the TRs by converting them to Transfer Orders.

TO Numbers ________ __________

1.2.4 Confirm the Transfer Orders.

1.2.5 Confirming the Production Order confirms that the work has been completed and signals that you have
consumed the materials from the production floor. It is possible to have the system complete the finished
assembly at this point, delivering the finished pump to the warehouse for put away into stock. In our test
system, the confirmation of the Production Order will consume all of the materials required to build the
assembly and perform the receipt of the finished assembly into stock. In PP, perform the Completion
Confirmation. How many goods issues were processed? _______ Failed? ________.

1.2.6 The Production Order accomplished two functions: consumed the components and received the finished
pump into the warehouse. Now you must process the finished pump to the fixed bin in the warehouse.

1.2.6.1 Process the finished goods to its final destination bin. Which storage type/bin is suggested by the
TO you created? ________________________

1.2.6.2 Where does the system get that information? ________________________

1.2.7 Confirm the TO.
