Repetitive manufacturing questions
I am not new to sap or PP module, but fairly new to repetitive manufacturing. All my experience is in discrete industry. I have some questions which I need your help with, I would really appreciate any help..
1. I have a planned order for quantity 10 and I have GR all the 10 on the planned order using MFBF. I go to planned order and see the order quantity is 10 and received quantity is 10. if the order is satisfied, this planned order should be vanished from the system, correct? why do I still see the order?
2. for a material, I have not created any planned order in the system. but when i go to mfbf and give the material number and version and just do assembly backflush, I see 131 document getting created. if there is no planned order in that system, I though it will go to cogi and 131 will not be performed. am I wrong? In this case how/where did system reduce the planned order? what settings should I make to make sure that without a planned order, I should not be able to backflush.
Th reason why I want to make this setting is, there is a danger that people just go on do mfbf even without a supply element (planned order)
3. if I do assembly backflush, will system create just one material document for both 131 and 261? can I make system do this?
5. what is the advantage of using batch management for raw materials in rem, because always we do backflsuh in REM and traceability is lost.

Please see my comments below for all your questions.
1.Chcek REM Profile configuration OSP2 for Planned order reduction.
Further you can refer SAP Note 1932420 Reduction Period for planned orders in REM
2.There is no setting to control this, You need to make Planned order field is mandatory during MFBF with screen variant from SHD0
3.If you select GI Back flush at GR Posting in OSP2 then you would get 1 document for 261 and 131.
4.You can easily idenfy the one lot when you compare with others and Also it is easy for tracebility.
