Production order type dependent parameters

Dear Frndz,

plz help me out with the various parameters which can be set based on the production order type. and the step by step procedure to configure the same.

Pls. find the step by step procedure as below :

Define order type-dependent parameters

In this step, you define the parameters that are valid for each order type and plant. The parameters are split up as follows on the tab pages:


Master data

Here, you define the data that influences master data selection or order master data maintenance:

You can decide whether production versions are selected automatically or manually.

The task list application is predefined as 'P'. However, you can also specify an additional task list application.

The routing selection ID defines, for example, the ranking order for routing selection.

Routing selection defines whether routings are to be selected and if so, how (manually or automatically) and whether reference operation sets can also be selected.

Alternative sequences and sequence exchange define whether alternative sequences are permitted and how the sequences are to be exchanged.

The task list type defines which routing type is permitted for production orders.

Operation dtl check defines whether operation detail screens are to be checked when the operations are transferred to the order.

Routing text defines that the text from the routing header is copied into the order.

You can activate the entry tool for operations to help you when you create operations.

BOM application defines how the BOM alternatives are to be automatically selected.

Search procedure defines how batch determination is to take place.


Substitute MRP controller/substitute production scheduler are proposed when you create production orders if an MRP controller or production scheduler are not specified in the material master, or if there is no reference to material.

Reservation/Purch. req. specifies whether certain order objects (operation, components) are relevant to MRP.

Collective purch.req. enables collective purchase requisition per order for externally processed operations or non-stock items.

Inspection type defines how a quality inspection is to be carried out.


Status change documents

Here, you define whether you want change documents to be written if a status change occurs. You also define the level at which the change documents are to be written.

A status change document contains the following:

which status has been changed

who changed the status

whether the status has been activated or deactivated

the transaction in which the status change has been carried out

In the production order, you can define the status at the following levels:

order header level

operation level

material component level

production resource/tool level

Status change documents can also be defined independently of each other, at each of these four levels.


If you have defined these parameters such that status change documents are written for a particular order level, the SAP System only writes a status change document for a status change from this point in time if the order (or operation/component/PRT) has been created since the status change documents have been activated.

Shop Floor Information System

You can specify, for example, whether order data is to be stored in the Shop Floor Information System. You can carry out reports using this system, for example, for materials, orders and work centers.

Documentation of goods movements

Here, you can specify that goods movements are to be documented with reference to an order. Then you can display goods movements, for example, using the order information system.

You can enter a profile for displaying documented goods movements on the tab page "Display profiles".


PDC active allows data to be exchanged with a PDC system.


Workflow for PO chg. defines that a workflow is generated when quantities or dates that affect existing purchase orders are changed in the order. In addition, a default rule for the split is displayed on this screen.

So that this indicator is also valid for production orders the appropriate settings must be made in Customizing for the Project System.

Progress determination in orders

You can determine that progress values are calculated for order progress reports.



Here, you define the parameters relevant to controlling, such as, for example, costing variants for planned and actual costs and a results analysis key.

Distribution rule

Default (distribution) rule defines an automatically generated distribution rule for CO settlement.

Display profiles

Collective order display

Graphics profile defines how the collective order is to be displayed.


Here, you define parameters for displaying graphics of operations and sequences in the order.

Missing parts list

ProfMissPrtsLstOrdNo/PrfMissPrtLstCollOr defines how the missing parts list is to be displayed.

Documentation of goods movements

Goods movements defines which profile is used for displaying documented goods movements.


Create the necessary parameters for the order type.

HOpe this helps.
