1. Can we create Production order without bom and routing?

yes we can create a production order without BOM & routing.
Change the Config in OPL8 ( order type dependent parameters)
as routing optional. But it may ask for a sales order when
we try to create order using CO01

2. what is the difference between PP and PP-PI?
Which one is better and how?

PP--> Prodction Planning mostly used for descrete type of
industries , where at the time of confirmation the output is
sure to be fixed. eg Automobile

PP- PI--> Production Planning for Process Industries , here
mostly used for the typical chemical industries , as the
Yield is not fixed due to chemical reaction yield values can
be varied to noticable extent. Eg X+Y =Z some 10 kg of X
and 1 KG of Y givs yiled that is Z of 10 Kg only.

3. If there are some errors in goods movements, and less stock of material consumed, how can i solve that problem in SAP?

According to me COGI is basically a SAP standardised system
which will tell you that what is the error in some cases it
can rectify it too.

But if the entry is done manually by MB1A, MB1B, MB1C you
have to bring back or cancell the movement or move the
stock to desired material and then refresh COGI.

4. If there are some errors in goods movements, and less stock of material consumed, how can we solve that problem in SAP?

First you have to do revoke Teco and then process the
order,other wise system wont allow..

5. Explain why their is need of production version?

In production version, we assign the BOM and ROUTING
combination. And in case of alternate BOMs , it clears which
alternative bom has to be selected automatically.

6. Explain what is the meaning of exploding a BOM?

it is the process of multiplying the requirement by the
usage quantity and recording the appropriate requirements
throughout the product tree

7. What are all the different manufacturing scenarios in pp?

There are different scenarios in SAP PP module.
1)Make to stock
2)Make to order
3)External processing (Subcontracting)
4)Rework processing
5)Prodcution in another plant

8. in sap system, how to get production order record!
example: i want to know who lock my production order!

You can use SM12 and type in the Production order number
with * at beginning and end.say like if order number is
100234 ,type it like *100234* and execute. it will give the
list of users who are currently accessing that order

9. What is the need of pp in sap, what is the flow diagram of sap pp

SAP pp provides capabilities for planning, execution,
quality, maintenance.This integrated manufacturing solution
gives you the features and functions necessary for you to
Activity flow

Step 1. Material Creation-Finished with suitable material
Step 2. Purchasing and procurement of Material
Step 3. Creation of Bills of Material
Step 4. Creation of Work center
Step 5. Creation of routing.
Step 6. Creation of Production Order
Step 7. Confirmation of production order
Step 8. Stock check
Step 9. MRP run
Step 10.Material Procurement

11. Do you have different BOMs for a material in different plants?

generally we have following BOMs
1.Product Tree
2. Parent- component relationship
3. Multilevel Bill
4.Multiple Bill
5. Single Level Bill
6. Indented bill
7. Summarized parts list
8. Planning bill
9. where- used report
10. Pegging report

12. What structure do your BOMs have? How many levels are there?
How many components are there on each level?

BOM IS A multilevel,
we can assign bom level by level cs11,
level 1 bom header material assembly level,
contains components which also have bom contains
level 2 bom sub assembly level
last lower level is
level 3 components level

13. Which BOM maintenance functions do you require (copy functions, mass changes, and so on)?

CS20 with this transaction code we can able to do Mass
changes to BOM
such as:Change Item Data
New material
Number of the material that is to be created or that is to
replace another material.

You can only replace a material with another material that
has the same values in the following fields:

base unit of measure
issue unit
material type

14. Do you have products with a large number of variants? Do you need Variant Configuration?

We can have any number of varaint product. It is optional
you can configurate it or at the timne of slaes order with
will be ask for features and options. Every varraint has
unique indentificatin number.

15. Do you have several alternative BOMs for a material, depending on the manufacturing procedure or lot size, for example (multiple BOM)?

yes you can have several alternative BOMs for a material,
only thing is you need to define every BOM with deiffrent
product structure type.

16. What we will do after the marking and
releasing of standard price in product costing?

Price update and the same reflects in the accounting view
of the material master.

17. Tell me the planning steps for 100 products?

CK11n is used for standard cost estimation.
to run that we have to run ck24 also.

Use CK40N f0r 100 products

18. What is the difference between stock transfer order and stock transport order?

Stock transfer is the transfer of stock for the usage in the
same company

whereas stock transport is meant for change of title of
stock in the name of the buyer

19. What are the costing parameter?

The costing Parameters are the following

Work center : Activity types and the formulaes,cost center

Routing : the time ,activity types

In Production order dependent parameters we are defining
the Variant ,result analysis key,settlement profile

In the controlling i.e in KP 26 we will be defining the
rates per hour depending on the rates it will reflect the
cost caluculating from the routing..
