Creating a Sales Order With Make-to-Order Items (Cost Management With The Project System)
To create a sales order for make-to-order goods where cost management is performed using the Project System, proceed as follows:
The values for sales organization, for distribution channel and the division are usually proposed from user-defined parameters. Entries for the sales office and the sales group are optional.
– Customer number of the sold-to party
– Customer purchase order number
– Material number
– Order quantities for the material
If the prerequisites for Creating a Sales Order With Make-to-Order Items (Cost Management Using the Sales Order) have been met, the system automatically determines the appropriate requirements type for the material. This requirements type controls make-to-order production.
The document is considered incomplete until this number has been maintained.
The project number is then proposed in the items if they require project account assignment
The field in the header is only a proposal value and not a completed account assignment. If you want to manage items in a project even though they do not require project account assignment, you must maintain the account assignment manually in the corresponding item, because a project number maintained in the header is not automatically copied in the item.
If the project number is maintained in the make-to-order items, individual requirements are created for these items, when you save the sales order. These initiate the production. The production orders which are created on the basis of the requirements are assigned to the project.
Scheduling, inventory management, shipping and billing are carried out in the same way as for the make-to-order production with cost management using a sales order. Status management is part of the Project System and can therefore not be edited in Sales and Distribution.
