piehl: Completion Confirmations Define Control Parameters for Completion


Confirmations
Posted by Michael Piehl Jan 31, 2014
Hello again, it seemed like I might never get to the end of configuring the service order, but it finally happened.
And since I've been a roll, I figured I'd roll right inot the next logical piece, the completion confirmation. This
series will be much shorter than the service order, but no less important. This first piece is typically the biggest
piece to get in place... so let's get to it.

Here's where to find it in SPRO.

Once you select the option, you get the full list of service orders (and every other order type as well), by plant.
So this means that you can define your parameters by plant, by order type. I've picked one of the orders above
to show you what you have to choose from.

Now, the fun of this screen is that there is a lot going on within this single piece of configuration, so I'll walk you
through each part of it.
Default Values:
Now, whenever you open up something like IW41 or IW42, there will always be a set of selections in here.
This gives you a first pass at anything you want defaulted. You get the following options:
Final Confirmation
Post Open Reservations - if you set final confirmation along with this, it sets the final issue for the
components that are not backflushed.
Propose dates - propose start and end dates based on the lead time scheduling.
Propose activities - this will calculate the amount of time left. If the total is 100, you've previous
confirmed 70, 30 units will be proposed.
Milestone automatic.- transfer the dates to the milestone automatically
Material Movements
All components - if you don't check this, only shows backflushed components. If you check it, all components
will be shown.
Selection

By default, both of these are checked. If you don't want confirmed operations, simple uncheck the box.
confirmed ops - confirmed operations are also selected
confirmable - confirmable operations are selected.
Checks
This area comprises the checks that should occur whenever you confirm an operation.
Date in future - checks if you allow a future date to be entered
WrkDev. active - allows you to flag if the time you entered deviated by a certain amount (you can
define that amount in the field to the right)
DurtnDev.active - allows you to flag if the duration deviated by a certain amount (you can define that
amount in the field to the right)
HR Update
No HR update - stops the automatic data availability to the HR module, like CATS for example.
no Date update - don't update actual date in the operation.

Logs/Error handling
actual costs - error log is generated for actual costs issues
Termination for incorrect actual cost- check if confirmation should terminate on error
goods movement - error log is generated for goods movements
termination for incorrect goods movement - check if confirmation should terminate on error
Control Data
Process Control - controls the execution of the confirmation. The out of the box option available is
Backflushing/automated goods issue
Mass Confirmation
Rough Reversal - means that the reversal doesn't look at the individual confirmations in mass. You'd
only do this for performance reasons.
Rough reversal frm counter stats - allows you to set a status for when it's allowed
simplified forecast work cancellation - for forecasting, forecast work will equal planned work.
(actual work if final confirmed)
execute milestone functions - this only applies to PS, so ignore this.

In general, most of the settings, except for the default rarely need to be touched. Regardless, this is the basis
for the settings of your service order confirmations.
