Creating Manufacturing Order

This document explains how a manufacturing order (MO) is created. A manufacturing order can be created via controls and released from a planned manufacturing order, or can be created from a directly created manufacturing order.

Outcome

The following files are affected:

Information on load and capacity is taken from and is updated in (MCPSPE), (MCPSUM) and (MWLOAD).

Uses

Before you start

A complete planned manufacturing order must exist in order for a planned manufacturing order to be handled and released. Planned manufacturing orders have order category=100 in 'Material Plan. Open' (MMS080).

Follow These Steps

  1. To create a manufacturing order from a planned manufacturing order, check material and tools:

    You check material availability in 'Component Availability. Check' (RPS010). Start from 'Planned MO. Open' (PMS170).

    You check that there are tools to perform the order in 'Tool Availability. Check' (RPS020). Start from 'Planned MO. Open' (PMS170).

  2. Check capacity:

    You check that there is sufficient capacity to perform the order in 'Load. Display per Product' (CPS110). Pay special attention to all bottlenecks. Start from 'Planned MO. Open' (PMS170).

  3. Release planned manufacturing order:

    Planned manufacturing orders can be released one by one or all at once. Order-initiated manufacturing orders are released without previous controls.

    You release planned manufacturing orders in 'Planned MO. Open' (PMS170).

  4. Create manufacturing order:

    Released planned manufacturing orders (status=60) and directly created manufacturing orders are changed automatically to manufacturing orders. They receive status=20 and the order category is updated to 101.

    Planned manufacturing order information is deleted from the planning proposal file (MMOPLP). The information on the new manufacturing order , is based on the information from the planned manufacturing order, and the information is created in files that include the manufacturing order's header, material and operations (MWOHED, MWOMAT and MWOOPE).

    Creation of manufacturing orders may be done in 'Entry of MO' (PMS005).

    It is also possible to create a manufacturing order directly in 'Manufact Order. Enter' (PMS001). Directly created manufacturing orders do not go through any of the controls that are performed for planned manufacturing orders.

    In the case of directly created manufacturing orders, information serves as the foundation for the new manufacturing order that is created in files. These files include the manufacturing order's header, material and operations (MWOHED, MWOMAT and MWOOPE).
