SAP PP-PI IN HOT ROLLING MILL
I am working in a hot rolling mill since 5 years.We produce Hot rolled coils.Now we are planning to implement the PP module.As per my understanding SAP PP-PI should be implemented.We have a reheating furnace from which slab at 1250 degrees is discharged and passes through a roughing mill,finishing mill and finally coiled in coiler.The furnace is lighted by gas.The major components we use for production are steel slabs,Water,electricity,gas,hydraulic oil etc.I want to know what should be our BOM and routing for the master recipes.What standard value keys should we maintain in the work centre.Should we treat the entire production line as work center?Please suggest.

You can use PP-PI if you need functionalities like master recipes, approval of master data or PI Sheets. Otherwise, if this is not necessary, there is an Industry Solution called Mill Producs, which can be used for this scenario.
