 Collective Orders with Automatic Goods Movements: Scenario Locate this document in the navigation structure


You have specified in the order type that goods movements take place between the manufacturing levels.

Process Flow

  1. You create a production order for a material. At least one of the semifinished products used in the finished product must have a special procurement key for "direct production/collective order" in the MRP view of its master record.

  2. The system creates a collective order with a leading order for the finished product and dependent orders for the semifinished products, which have a special procurement key.

  3. When you create production orders, the system generates a settlement rule automatically for each production order. The settlement rule of each order in the collective order assigns the order costs to the following receivers:

    Make-to-stock production

    To the make-to-stock inventory (receiver = material)

    Sales-order-related production with a valuated sales order stock

    To the valuated sales order stock (receiver = material)

    Engineer-to-order with a valuated project stock

    To the valuated project stock (receiver = material)

    Sales-order-related production with a nonvaluated sales order stock

    To the sales order item

    Engineer-to-order with a nonvaluated project stock

    The WBS element

  4. You determine the planned costs for the individual orders, using the preliminary costing functions if necessary. The planned credit is made according to the planned credit for production orders that are not part of a collective order.

  5. When you enter a goods receipt for a lower-level order, the system generates a goods issue for the higher-level order at the same time automatically. An MM document is generated for the goods movement.

  6. The goods receipt results in the lower-level order being credited in accordance with the price control defined in the material’s master record. The goods issue results in the higher-level order being debited in accordance with the price control. This means that if the price control indicator of the material is set to S , the credit and debit are at the standard price. If the price control indicator is set to V , the credit and debit are at the price selected in accordance with the valuation variant specified in Customizing for Product Cost by Order under Define Goods Received Valuation for Order Delivery . If the price control indicator is set to V , the actual credit and the actual debit can use the value calculated in the preliminary order cost estimate.

    The postings in accordance with the automatic goods movements transfer the complete production costs of each manufacturing level to the corresponding manufacturing order.

  7. At the end of the period, you first allocate the process costs, revaluate the activities at actual costs, and calculate the overhead.

  8. You calculate the work in process.

  9. You calculate the variances.

  10. You perform settlement. All orders in the collective order settle the difference between the debit and credit in accordance with the settlement rule.

Note Note

If you are using collective orders, you can specify whether you want to view the costs for the order you entered, for a subtree of the collective order, or for the entire collective order, or whether you first want to see an overview of the structure of the collective order and from there go to the cost reports of the individual orders.

End of the note.
