Conversion factor problem for density - PP-PI

Hi Gurus!

Now i am in pp implementation for process industry.

(Lubricants manufacturing Industry)

1. On production of Semi Finished product each batch will be given a conversion factor where Raw materials will be consumed in KG and on MIGO (GR) output of Semi finished will be captured in Liters. In BOM for SKU (STOCK KEEPING UNIT) wise production it will be maintained in Liters.

Now my area of concern are:-

1. Conversion factor to be used at what stage & whether it is to be made flexible for each Process Order:

In proposed PP module it is being principally decided to undertake production of final FG in two stages.

First the production will be for product and in second stage it will be for the SKUs. The consumption of RAW materials will continue to be booked in KG. After the Blending is over when we do the GR for the Semi finished product the unit of measure should be in Liters ( that will depend on the Density after Blending)only.

In Blending( Mixing of Base oil & Additive) operation the quality person will check the density (Kg/L)

After applying the density he arrives semifinished quantity as detailed below:

For Example : semifinish UOM -


Raw mat1 qty 850Kg

Raw mat2 qty 150kg


Total = 1000kg


Density of semifinish Material at 29.5deg C = 0..8957

semifinish quantity is 1000/0.8957 = 1116.45 Liter ( This is actual output)

we need At the time of confirmation(COR6) the system will consume the raw material as 1000Kg and will give Semifinished qty as 1116.45 Liter

How to map in SAP?
