Switch from Discrete to Repetitive Manufacturing


I was wondering if this was possible. Can we switch from Discrete to Repetitive manufacturing?

What are the effort? What needs to be change?

Material master?

Work Center?

Do we have to create new master data or can we only change what we have?

Let me know if you have any documentation.

Thanks for your help.

Dear David,

Master Data for Discrete scenario is the Material master, BOM, Work centers, Routing & if required

Production versions also.

So once when decided to move from Discrete to REM scenario, the same Material Master, BOM & work

centers can be used.Here in addition we have to create Rate routing(Same routing can also be used,as

internally structure wise they are same) for the In-house manufactured HALB & FERT materials.

REM Allowed indicator & REM profile has to be mentioned for all the Inhouse manufactured items.

Then we have to proceed with Production version for combining the BOM & Rate Routing,then creating

Product Cost collector through KKF6N.---> Cost Rollup using CK40N.

This depends on the material count,instead of converting all the materials from discrete to REM in one

shot,atleast periodically if you try to do it will be easy.

Otherwise you have to do all the settlement things for a period end and the next period you have to shift to


Check & Revert back.
