Define Output Item for a Product Structure

This document explains how you define one or more output items for a product structure by:

The 'Output Items. Open' (PDS029) program allows you to set up items as outputs that are manufactured from a process. This program works in conjunction with 'Product Structure. Open' (PDS001) which represents a product structure header. The output defined must be an inventoried item.


You can define and maintain output items for product structures that are the structure class type of '15- Packaged item product structure' or '11-Formula'.

Before you start

The output items can be defined when these prerequisites are met:

    2. Open 'Product. Version' (PDS028) and highlight a product associated with a planning process from the grid on the B1 panel:

      Select Related > End/Output Products (CTRL+11) to launch 'Output Items. Open' (PDS029).
