Grouping and Classifying of Production Orders

Structure Order Backlog and Form Work Packages for the Production

Configurable as well as non-configurable materials benefit from the order compounding functions. Characteristic values serve as the primary criterion for bracketing and sequencing production orders. The solution is used to structure the order pool of different production areas or work centers within the production days. Order packages (collective orders) are formed from the entire order pool. Within an order package, the sequence of the production orders is defined in order to optimize the throughput of production.

Your Benefits

Form Order Packages - Sorting Production Orders According to Relevant Characteristic Values

Order compounding can be used to structure the production order pool of different production areas and work centers for the production period. With the formation of order packages, the sequence of production orders within a collective order is defined. With the solution, characteristic values are offered as sorting criteria in addition to various standard database fields from the order environment. In particular, the order compounding functions also offer list representations of the production orders under consideration with the relevant characteristic values, which do not exist in the SAP standard.
