You can use the Schedule Manager to assist you in performing the period-end closing activities. For more information, refer to the following sections:Individual Functions of the Schedule Manager Scheduler Monitor Flow Definition
To be able to use the multilevel worklist to reprocess the objects that have errors, you must use the Schedule Manager with the flow definition. For more information, see the following section:Schedule Manager: Multilevel Worklist
First perform the following functions if applicable:
If you are using a cost object hierarchy and have assigned orders with co-products to this cost object hierarchy, you distribute the actual costs posted to the cost object hierarchy to the assigned orders.
The function Preliminary Settlement for Co-Products, Rework is a collective function. When you perform Preliminary Settlement for Co-Products, Rework, the system selects the following objects in accordance with your selection criteria:
These individual functions are performed in the indicated sequence.
The individual functions can also occur in combination:
Rework Orders and Joint Production
You may have generated a rework order for a joint production order. In this case:
Rework Orders and Collective Orders Without Automatic Goods Movements
It is possible for a rework order to settle to a manufacturing order that is linked to a collective order that does not use automatic goods movements. In this case the rework order first settles to the original manufacturing order. Then the original manufacturing order – as long as it is not the leading order – settles to its higher-level manufacturing order.
SAP recommends the use of collective orders with automatic goods movements.
To reduce the runtime of the actual cost distribution process, you can execute the Preliminary Settlement for Co-Products, Rework function with parallel processing.
Schedule Manager: Multilevel Worklist
You can view and edit the objects with errors that were processed with the individual functions. You use the multilevel worklist for this purpose. The multilevel worklist enables you to edit the faulty objects of an individual processing step (that is, a single function) or of an entire processing step sequence.
A prerequisite for the multilevel worklist is that you are using the Schedule Manager in conjunction with a flow definition.
