Use

This section should show you, by means of a complex example, the options available with the summarized JIT call. The structures and functions described in the units Creating and Transmitting a Summarized JIT Call and Grouping Kanbans in a Summarized JIT Call are used here.

You have the following scenario:

Prerequisites

You assign all partner functions, which are necessary for this processing, to LIEF1 as headquarters. For North plant you only require the partner functions VN and OA; for South plant you also require the partner function C, because you want to transmit the summarized JIT call not only to the plant but also to the carrier.

C -SPED

OA - LIEF1_SÜD

   

SV - SUBLIEF

   

Caution

You can only take on those partner functions in the scheduling agreement which you have also maintained in the vendor master record.

As the forecast delivery schedules are transmitted to headquarters, you must enter partner function OA - LIEF1 for all materials. For MAT1, the forecast delivery schedule must also be sent to the subvendors. For this reason maintain the partner function SV: MAT1 and MAT2 are delivered from North plant. For both of these scheduling agreements you maintain the partner function OA - LIEF1_NORD, so that you are later able to summarize material requirements. For South plant enter the corresponding partner function OJ - LIEF1_SÜD.

Process Flow

  1. You are starting a planning run.
  2. The planning run generates a schedule line.
  3. You transmit this schedule line as a forecast delivery schedule to OJ - LIEF1 and in the case of MAT1 also to SV - SUBLIEF.
  4. The system carries out the message determination for the schedule line with the partner table, which is maintained for LP_MAT1.

  5. You set a kanban for MAT1 to EMPTY or you generate an event-driven kanban.
  6. If there is still no applicable summarized JIT call available, to which the material requirements can be attached (same vendor, same message partner, same plant), then the system generates a new summarized JIT call.
  7. In generating a summarized JIT call, the system calls the message determination. The system finds the message via the vendor master record with help from the partner function(s) and message partners.
  8. The system carries out this message determination with the partner table, which is maintained for LIEF1_NORD in the vendor master record.

  9. You set another kanban for MAT2 to EMPTY or you generate an event-driven kanban.
  10. The system checks whether this requirement can be attached to the current summarized JIT call, in other words whether the vendor, message partner and plant are identical.

    Whether or not the message partner is the same, the system can check the JIT call profile. It contains the partner functions, through which the system can determine the message partner in the scheduling agreement.

    In our example, the JIT call profiles from MAT1 and MAT2 contain the partner function OJ. The message partner LIEF1_NORD is assigned to the partner function for both materials.

  11. If all necessary entries match, then the system attaches the material requirements to the current summarized JIT call as an item. In this case, the summarized JIT call contains material requirements from two different scheduling agreements. The system does not carry out a new message determination.
  12. For all further material requirements, the system carries out the same review.
  13. If you do not want to transmit the message, then the system reads the data in the summarized JIT call and transmits this message to LIEF1_NORD.

In the case of MAT3, the system would transmit the message to the South plant and also to the carrier.
