All About Work: Useful SAP PP Tcodes
Well this is a bit boring! But we got a family to feed so let’s tackle some work-related stuff. Since we’d like you to have work-life balance, we will be publishing some articles to help make your day’s work a little bit easier. Of course, we all have different jobs and this one is particularly useful for production planning – All About Work: Useful SAP PP Tcodes.
Lucky for me, I work for a company with Advance Planner and Optimizer (APO). SAP APO is a supply chain planning tool; that helps organizations manage their supply chain. SAP APO has primarily four modules DP (Demand Planning), SNP (Supply Network Planning), PPDS (Production Planning and Detail Scheduling), GATP (Global Available to Promise). But some companies do not have APO and rely alone on PRD-ERP. SAP ERP is an enterprise resource planning software developed by the German company SAP SE. It incorporates the key business functions of an organization.
SAP PP Tcodes
If you happen not to have SAP APO, then you may use these SAP PP Tcodes.
|Tcodes||Description||Where I Use It|
|COOIS||Production Order Information System||List of open production orders, consumption, confirmed quantities per production order|
|MB51||Material Document List||Transaction history of SKU ID, movement type, transfer from location to another, confirmation, goods receipt|
|MB52||Display Stocks of Material||List of materials available in the stocks as per the material number, includes location and batch|
|MMBE||Display Stocks of Material||Available stocks at the plant level, also includes location and batch – one material at a time only|
|CO01/ CO02/ CO03||Production Order||Create/Change/Display production order – I use SAP APO and not CO01 but just in case you need it|
|MM02/ MM03||Material||Change/Display material – material creation normally is created by a team separate from planning, usually quality or development team|
|CS03||BOM||Display single-level BOM|
|CS11||BOM||Explode BOM level by level / single and multi level|
|CS12||BOM||Explode multi-level BOM|
|CS13||BOM||Display summarized BOM|
|CS15||BOM||Transaction displays where a material is used – I use this a lot when I need to convert the stocks of materials to equivalent finished goods|
|C223||Production Version||Maintain production versions – generally means assigning SKU BOM to its specific line or machine.|
These are basically the most common SAP PP Tcodes that I use. If you want to know more then you can view and download other SAP PP Tcodes at sap4tech.net.
