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'.
The output items can be defined when these prerequisites are met:
For example, you may create a Product structure record using 'Product Structure. Open' (PDS001) to model a formula to make orange juice where the 'Product' (PRNO) identifier is set up as 'FORMULA-JUICE' and the output of this formula 'ORANGE-JUICE' is defined in the product structure output table MPDOUT using 'Output Items. Open' (PDS029). The Product number (PRNO) value in the Product structure record indicates that a formula is available to make orange juice, but the actual item being manufactured is defined on the (PDS029) program.
Start 'Product Structure. Open' (PDS001) and highlight a product, which is associated with a manufacturing planning process, from the grid on the B panel:
Select Related > End/Output Products (CTRL+15) to launch 'Output Items. Open' (PDS029).
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).
On the B panel of 'Output Items. Open' (PDS029), enter an output item in the Item field and select the Create option.
On the E panel, enter the 'Output quantity' and corresponding 'Manufacturing unit of measure' in the Details section.
