Function documentationTransfer of Production Yield Confirmation Locate this document in the navigation structure


This function enables the transfer of a production yield confirmation message to SAP ERP. The message is triggered when one of the following occurs in SAP ME:

  • An SFC number of the Production shop order has completed an operation that is marked as the SAP ERP reporting step.

  • A top level SFC number of the Production shop order was packed into a container and the container has been closed using Pack/Unpack (see Container).

The function supports both discrete and time-based components (see Time-Based Genealogy).


  • In SAP ERP, a confirmation documents the processing status of orders, operations, sub-operations and individual capacities. A confirmation is also an instrument for controlling orders.

  • The following business transactions can be executed through confirmations in SAP ERP:

    • Updating order data (for example, quantities, activities, dates and times, status)

    • Component consumption and goods receipt of the finished product

    • Capacity reduction in the work center

    • Updating costs based on confirmed data

    • Updating MRP-relevant excess or missing quantities in the order

  • SAP ME is the system of record for WIP. Changes to a Production shop order made in SAP ME are communicated to SAP ERP (see Transfer of Production Order: Integration Details).

  • For ERP configuration type C, SAPMEINT does not record yield and scrap quantity via normal ERP confirmation of production orders.

    For ERP configuration types A and B, if you update a production order directly in SAP ERP by recording scrap quantity movements, SAPMEINT does not update the corresponding shop order in SAP ME (see SAPMEINT: SAP ERP Configuration).

  • See Transfer of Production Yield Confirmation: Integration Details.


  • You have imported the production order data from SAP ERP.

  • You have released the Production shop order to the shop floor (see Shop Order Release).

  • You have verified that routings contain at least one ERP reporting step.

    We recommend that the last routing operation is marked as ERP reporting step to ensure that all consumed components are reported to SAP ERP.

  • For container close, you have created Material pack level containers in Container Maintenance and set the following activity rules for PK020 (Pack/Unpack) in Activity Maintenance (see Pack/Unpack):





      Note that SAPMEINT supports only SAP ERP routings with the sequence of zero (ERP_SEQUENCE=0).

  • You have verified that collaboration links and directives are configured (see Configuring SAP ME Outbound Collaboration).

  • You have verified that the control keys of the operations do not allow Auto Goods Receipt and that they allow confirmations (see Control Key and SAP Note 1502536Information published on SAP site).

  • You have verified that all work centers have the same activity types arranged in the same sequence.

  • You have verified that the component materials are not marked as backflushed.

  • You have verified that operation sequence is not checked (see   Logistics   Production   Shop Floor Control   Operations   Confirmation   Define Confirmation Parameters   (transaction OPK4)).


  • You do one of the following in SAP ME:

    • Complete an SFC number at the ERP reporting step

    • Pack a top level SFC number for the Production shop order into a container and close it using Pack/Unpack

  • SAP ME triggers a collaboration event.

  • SAPMEINT sends a yield confirmation or a container close confirmation to update the processing status of the production order, operations, and individual capacities in SAP ERP (see Transfer of Production Yield Confirmation: Integration Details).
