You use this procedure to reduce the effort in creating new routings by copying from an existing routing.

If a suitable source routing does nor exist in your system use the procedure Creating a Routing.


The following data already exists in the system:


  1. On the R/3 main menu choose Logistics ® Production ® Master data ® Routings and then Routings ® Routing (or other task list type) ® Create.
  2. Note

    In the following procedure the task list type Routing is referred to, primarily in menu paths. The same paths are also valid for the other task list types (reference operation sets, rate routings and reference rate routings). If you want to maintain such an object choose the <task list type> instead of Routing.

  3. Enter the relevant data on the initial screen.
  4. Choose Routing ® Copy from.
  5. Select the required task list type and choose Continue.
  6. Enter the necessary data for selecting a source routing.
  7. All routings that fit the selection criteria are displayed in a dialog box.

  8. Place the cursor on the required source and choose Choose.
  9. The data is copied from the source to the new routing. For information about exceptions and special features, refer to Create by Copying

  10. If necessary, append or change the header data that was copied and choose Continue.
  11. The changes are checked completely by the system.
    For example, if you have changed the plant from that of the source and the original work centers do not exist in the new plant, the details screen with the relevant fields is displayed automatically.

    If no inconsistencies are found, the operation overview is displayed.

  12. If necessary, change or append the operations and sub-operations that were copied. Save your routing.
