Define Manufacturing Settings for Company

This document explains how you create the following:

This document also explains how you define settings for the following:

See Create View for Work Center Schedule for instructions on how to define settings for the view.

Outcome

The enabled settings are used in the process for operational and executing manufacturing. You should continue to define settings for item/warehouse.

You have defined a manufacturing order type, which is a collective ID for a set of rules that determine how a manufacturing order is processed in the order flow. You have also specified the product structure type to be automatically proposed in the planning MO and when to create a manufacturing order manually.

Finally, the possible disturbance types for production are created.

Number series are stored in the CSYNBR file.

Parameters to set

Program ID/Panel Field The field indicates …
(CRS787/E) Structure types used

…if different structure types should be used. If the parameter is set, a structure type is used to define more than one product structure for each product and field of activity.

Manufacturing order can be created on different structure types. The types are defined in 'Settings - Product Structure' (CRS787).

(CRS787/E) Structure type standard

…a standard which can be changed in some places like cost calculation and manual creation of planned orders.

Note that certain functions can only be performed for products with the standard structure type, such as:

* Requirements calculation

* Lead time calculation

* Summarized bills of material.

Kit items belonging to customer orders might use another structure type.

(CRS787/E) Phantom operation routing

…how an operation in a phantom routing is processed.

1 = Only the operation time is totaled for an operation with the same operation number and the same work center. If there is no matching, it will be handled as in alternative 2.

2 = The entire operation always starts with 8xxx. The numbering sequence for added phantom operations is set in the P panel.

(CRS787/E) Phantom operation range …the range to be used when numbering the operations if more than one operation in any phantom routing is to be added to the routing on the highest level. The numbering of these operations always starts with 8XXX and continues according to the entered range.

The mail contains three parts:

* Description from the disturbance type

* Action date (when the report was made)

* Message from the disturbance type.

(PDS044) Send user message

… if a message should be sent when a report is made for the disturbance type.

The message is sent to the user (or receivers in the distribution list) defined for the disturbance type.

The message contains these parts:

* Description from the disturbance type

* Action date (when report was made).

(PDS044) Additional user id, part 1

… the field indicates a user ID or send list for direct distribution of a printout.

Note that user ID must be completed with an address. Normally, this is not necessary when a send list is available.

This method of distribution is only possible if the user ID and/or send lists exist in the system. However, this is not checked here.

(PDS044) Additional user id, part 2

…the address of the user ID entered.

The information is mandatory when distribution is applied to a user ID but it is optional when distribution is applied to a send list.

(PDS044) Additional distribution list, part 1 …the first part (out of two) of a distribution list identity. More than one list can contain the same part 1 or part 2, but the combination of parts 1 and 2 in the identity must always be unique.

(PMS120/E) Number series …the number series. The same ID may be used by other series if they belong to other types.
(PMS120/E) Set planned MO number as MO number

…if the manufacturing order should retain the same order number as the planned order.

The parameter is only relevant if the manufacturing order is created based on the planned order. Planned orders can be created from the requirements calculation or from (PMS170).

(PMS120/E) Load category

…if the load category should be:

A = normal order

B = special order.

A normal order is usually similar to a stock order while a special order means a customer order unique manufacturing. The load result can be analyzed separately for the respective category.

(PMS120/E) Planned MO schedule number as MO schedule number …if the schedule no. registered for the planned order should be copied to the order when it is released.
(PMS120/E) Time on stock receipts

Note that time is calculated only when shift scheduling is activated for the facility.

(PMS120/E) Time on material reservations

…if the material reservation time for the order should be displayed in the material plan. This time is the time in a reservation date when the order is estimated to be available.

The time is calculated only when shift planning is activated for the facility, regardless of the alternative specified.

(PMS120/E) Setup time processing

…if the setup time in the current manufacturing order should be 0.

This field enables you to avoid entering records in the setup time table for all combinations that should have a setup time of zero.

…the dispatch policy. A dispatch policy contains settings for the dispatch and it is assigned to each order type.

Dispatch policies are defined in 'Dispatch Policy. Open' (MWS010).

(PMS120/F) Reschedule when preallocation supply side change …whether changing the date for the preallocation or order-initiated acquisition order line causes rescheduling of the confirmed delivery date on the preallocated demand order line. This field also indicates whether rescheduling should take place if the acquisition order line has a reference order number to the demand order line.
(PMS120/F) Preallocation maintenance on quantity change …if a preallocation maintenance program should be triggered by a change of quantity on a preallocated order.
(PMS120/F) Automatically release for order costing

…if the manufacturing order should be released automatically for order costing when it is closed (status 90).

If you do not select this field, the order must be released manually in 'Order Costing. Display' (CAS310) or 'Order Costing. Release' (CAS320) for order costing.

(PMS120/F) Picking list separator …how deliveries should be created for a manufacturing order.
(PMS120/F) Color group …the color group. In M3 SWB, orders are grouped by color to make the list of orders easier to read. The color group can be assigned a value between 0 and 10, where each group represents one color.
(PMS120/F) Priority

…the order priority.

The priority is automatically created on the planned order when the order is created. The priority can then be changed manually for each planned order.

(PMS120/F) Surplus distribution priority

…if the order type should have high or low surplus distribution priority.

This functionality is used only in M3 SWB.

(PMS120/F) Two step put-away …whether two-step put-away is activated. This activation occurs in two places: in the stock zone and in the goods receiving method or order type.
(PMS120/F) Check standard cost at MO receipt

Alternatives:

0 = No

1 = Yes, with warning

2 = Yes, with stop.

(PMS120/F) Default receiving quantity at MO-receipt The 'Default receiving quantity at MO-receipt' parameter determines if the remaining quantity of a manufacturing order is defaulted or not in 'Manufacturing Order. Report Receipt' (PMS050), Manufacturing Order. Report By-product' (PMS080), and 'Manufacturing Order. Report Co-product' (PMS090).
(PMS120/F) Aging ...how aging can be used in manufacturing. A value of 0 will disregard aging, a value of 1 will consider aging based on the aging parameters in 'Item Connect. Warehouse' (MMS002), and a value of 2 will enable the user to override the reclass date and time for a lot at different stages of the manufacturing process.
(PMS490/E) Automatic completion of MO at receipt

…if a completion flag should be automatically set in connection with material issues through material requisition.

Automatic flagging is performed when the reported quantity is equal to or greater than the ordered quantity.

(PMS490/E) Automatic completion of operations

…if a completion flag is automatically set when work completed on operations for an order is reported.

Automatic flagging is performed when the manufactured quantity is equal to or greater than the ordered quantity.

(PMS490/E) Allow reporting for completed MO
