Production and Manufacturing in the ERP, in cooperation with all other integrated SAP applications, not much more than just facilitate effective production. It establishes a connection between the critical sales, production planning, as well as the factory floor. SAP integrates the supply chain to make your company competitive as possible. On the seamless integration with external real-time process control and laboratory information systems. This represents significant progress for information systems in the production of repeated and industry. SAP offers a complete integration between its design, material requirements planning (MRP), shop floor control system and module. SAP standard interface connection to the external CAD, product data management, data collection and plant systems. Therefore, SAP ERP is a state-of-the-art production systems for discrete manufacturers and engineering in order to companies.

Production Order Execution

The production order is the main central data object in shop floor control and manufacturing execution process. The production order contains every data relevant to the production objectives, material components, required resources, and costs. A normal production order will cover the demand for a single material or product, but you can also produce multiple products jointly in one production order (co-products) and distribute incurred costs between the different products.

In a production order, you can also specify external operations that are to be processed in an outside workshop. If you need to carry out a rework, you can create a separate rework order that is directly assigned to the primary production order. Alternatively, you can insert specific rework operations into an existing order. SAP Production orders are usually created from planned orders.
