Make-to-Stock with Silo Material – Process Manufacturing

This scope item focuses on process manufacturing with more complex parameters compared to the Make-to-Stock – Process Manufacturing Based on Process Order (BJ8) scope item. It enables production planning in make-to-stock scenarios with silo materials and phantom assemblies. Silo materials are generally stored in big silos or tanks. The silos are modeled as separate storage locations.

The process starts with the creation of a demand forecast for finished goods represented by Planned Independent Requirements (PIRs). Based on PIRs, Material Requirements Planning (MRP) creates a production plan for finished goods, semi-finished components, and raw materials.

The production process itself is entirely covered via conversion of planned into process orders, direct material issue or backflush, confirmation of operations and goods receipt posting. Order-based target and actual costs are created, ensuring fully integrated material and value streams.

Key Process Steps Covered

  • Use planned independent requirements processing
  • Use material requirements planning and evaluation of stock requirement list
  • Create process order, material staging, order confirmation, material movement postings for goods issue and goods receipt in production order processing
  • Run scrap reports optionally after production

Benefits

  • Support management of batch-oriented process manufacturing with silo materials and phantom assemblies
  • Use order-based target and actual costs management, ensuring fully integrated material and value streams
