Hello Deepu,

Backflusing is nothing but automatic goods issue with movement type 261.

U can set backflush as below levels and each has some effect.

1. Material Master (MRP view) -

- Always back flush - backflush will be activated whenever material used.

- Workcenter decides - If workceter allows- Here u need to activate BF ind at Workcenter

2. Routing - Component assignment tab

- Whenever the routing will be used the matreial will be backflused

3. Production order - component over view .

Here also u can activate the BF indicator manually .

if have not activated BF indicator, you have to issue the component manualy with MB1A.
