Alternate Routing and usage

Hi all,

We produce coaches of different types, viz.,GS(General Second Class), SCN(Three tire non-AC).....etc. we have a new unit started parallel to existing unit. Both existing and new unit comes under same Plant.

We are planning to produce similar type of coaches in existing and new unit parallelly. Here the issue is we have several hundreds of items and Assemblies which has to be manufactured simultaneously by both units(Existing unit & new Unit). Routing has to be made for all the items & assemblies.

Example:

Drawing Number: 1231100100100,

Description: Head stock beam

Routing:

Operation 010 is planned in Work center 10103117 Operation as Shear

Operation 020 is planned in Work center 10100121 Operation as Shear

Operation 030 is planned in Work center 10211141 Operation as Straighten

The same item is required to be produced in new unit with similar operations, but with different work center.

Example:

Drawing Number: 1231100100100,

Description: Head stock beam

Routing:

Operation 010 is planned in Work center 19100121 Operation as Shear

Operation 020 is planned in Work center 19100121 Operation as Shear

Operation 030 is planned in Work center 19101141 Operation as Straighten


Here the question is

1. The same item has to be manufactured in both existing and new unit

2. How to create Routing for same item as shown above. Is it possible.

3. How to create Alternate routing for the same item as shown above. I tried in SAP but could not succeed.

4. How to automatically activate the appropriate routing while releasing batch order/work order.


Please guide me with Step by step process and help me in giving solution.
